    How about this. What other comic book places are around, and easy acess by the underground? Also, that isn't as expensive as Forbiden Planet.. expensive place it is.. at least via the computer.

    Madame Tussards is by Baker St station, along with the London PLanetarium - both good, but quite pricey. NOTHING is cheap in London - even Londoners can't really afford to go out drinking in London. :p

    London Zoo in Regents Park is good, if you get a nice day. The London Eye opposite the Houses of Parliament (Westminster or Waterloo) as suggested is good - again if its a clear day.

    There are loads of museums: the Natural History and Science in South Kensington; theres the Victoria and Albert Museum just down the road.

    Sorry I'll rephrase it.

    The stores on Oxford street aren't designer clothes stores. They are average prices.

    London is over-rated. If you really want to see a beautiful country then you've gotta leave the smoke behind. It is dirty, over-crowded, and expensive. :p

    Well, where I'm staying it's just outside London.. uh.. in Zone 4 I think.
    I get off at Ealing Broadway to get to the house.. then take a bus. I suppose I would call it London's Boonies.
    It is very beautiful here.

    London itself is very industrealised, yet I like it. I suppose you have to live somewhere else to enjoy it.

    Ahh.. Camden Market Area.. which Tube stop might that be at? I'll ask my dad's girlfriend.. yet I might try and get out there today...

    LOL. Well, that W. London area is not too bad - bit more leafy than most of London (and about 5 miles outside it!) Not a day goes by now, though, that I thank the maker that I don't have to work in Central London. ;)

    CAMDEN! If you get chance you've simply got to go there. Head down towards Camden Stables for the best shops, namely...
