I do hope you enjoy your visit!

I'd love to see the stage version of Woman in Black, too, as I loved the book. Very creepy.

Oh I am so jealous! I would love to be able to travel over and see some of the Henry VIII exhibits. I was there for a month in 2001 and I've been dying to go back (on a student's budget, I didn't get to see much!).

I loved Hampton Court and Westminster Abbey. The Tower is nice but certainly a tourist trap. I didn't get to see the Crown Jewels when I went because I did not feel like standing in line for over 2 hours. Windsor Castle is another that would be great to tour. I'd say take some time to see stuff outside the city, but since you said you'll only be there a week that is probably out of the question. :)

Hope you have a great time!
