I second the advice about the London Walks tours. I've done a few (Jack the Ripper's London, London Ghosts, Westminster - led by a former BBC Parliamentary reporter who knew everbody who mattered and everything that was imporant - and London Soho - which was great fun).
For a trip out of the hurly burly of London, take the train at Charing Cross Station to Hampton Court. It's a lovely oasis. Alternatively, try Greenwich. There's lots to see including the Gypsy Moth (Sir Frances Chichester's boat), the Cutty Sark and Greenwich Observatory. I guarantee you'll spend a lot of time jumping back and forth over the prime meridien. Take the train from Charing Cross (drops you off in Greenwich) or the Tube to Canary Wharf (and you walk through the Thames Tunnel - a 19th century engineering feat). As an aside, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the father of British engineering who built the original tunnel, was voted the #1 Briton by BBC readers. His tunnel still stands. Lucy, Toronto
