Depends what u like. Do U want to hit all the historical sites or would u prefer to do London like a local? I think key thing to do is: - Sunday roast at a pub - Markets (Columbia road flower market on Sundays, maltby street or borough) - seeing a show - going to some nice high streets (Marleybone, Islington, hackney)

+1 to Columbia Road Flower Market!

The London eye is touristy and also a fun way to get a lovely view. Going to brick lane (a street not an exact place) for some Indian food is also a treat.

Does anyone else find it ridiculous that firms require a minimum daily time entry? For example, my firm requires us to bill 6 hours a day, whether or not it’s billable work, we have to have a minimum of 6.0 in our time entry system every day or we get flagged. If we’re on vacation we have to pre-bill 6.0 a day. Why the hell do firms do this???
