    This thread ties in with several other threads going on here.

    [hl=red]Excursion #1 - Leicester Square to British Museum area[/hl]

    Get your fill of comics and merchandise at Forbidden Planet, GOSH! Comics, the Cinema Store and Comicana. For books check out Borders. For a bit of culture head onto the British Museum, see Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre or Lord of the Rings the Musical at Theatre Royal. After all that walking, head to Bali Bali for an Indonesian culinary treat.

    If you are going to the London Eye or SW Exhibit, you might want to visit the [link=http://www.londonaquarium.co.uk/]London Aquarium[/link] as well. It's in the same area as the London Eye..
