After visiting our relatives in Germany we stopped in London for a week before heading back over th pond. One of the things I distinctly remember is that our hotel room was rather small and that the door to the bathroom would hit the toilet if you tried to open it all the way! London was a really fun place to visit and we hit up a bunch of the main tourist sites.
Once again, I don't remember the ordered that we visited places in, but I'll start with the tower of London. This is the castle where many famous people have been held prisoner and executed. It is also located right by the London Bridge, which makes for some great pictures and really convenient sightseeing!
The Beefeaters (see the first picture below if you don't know who I'm talking about) lead tours of the grounds, but I think you can walk around the grounds alone as well. The tower is still considered an official royal residence so you will also see the Scots Guards (the guys with the tall furry hats) patrolling the area. An interesting bit of trivia about the tower is that there is a superstition that "if the Tower of London ravens are lost or fly away the monarchy will fall and Britain with it". Therefore there are a group of ravens that are kept on the grounds of the Tower at all times. When we visited there was also a couple of guys demonstrating old style (medieval perhaps?) warfare.
