Poll: What To Do?  
So, I'm looking at having four days at the end of November where I am in the London area. It's likely that I will have a car. Anyone have suggestions on where to go/what to see?

Cambridge?

You met Sergei at K-chan and my wedding, yes?

The London Eye?

Well, I did the West Country on a three day weekend once. Stonehenge, Tintagel (castle on crumbling cliff), Dartmoor (half hour to cross wastelands are so cute), possible Moor ponies, hedges, behind which lurk nothing, but one suspects trolls, good stuff.

We need to do dinner in the near future too.

~Any of the museums. *_*
~Have hot chocolate at Amato's, near the theatre Mary Poppins is playing. Their hot chocolate was my absolute favorite thing to drink in London.
~Catch a play. I heard Woman in White is particularly fantastic.
~See the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London (in particular to gawk at the Crown Jewels and see the place of death of Anne Bolyn).
~ Go shopping! XD

OH YEAH! I don't know how big of a fan you are, but there's also a castle or something near London where Harry Potter was shot! err... FILMED!

... You ARE going to be in England around that time as well, yes?

Castles are cool. Oddly enough HP does not really tweak my urge to go visit movie locations. Which is pretty odd, given how many things do. (Now if I could visit Hogwarts, that would be a different story...)

Am I? Oh my! *forgot and is subsequently SHOT*

Check out the London Dungeon (not to be confused with the tower of...). It's a lot of fun.

I highly recommend the Imperial War Museum for historical geeking-out in London itself, and a short train and bus ride out into the country gets you to Avebury, which has a stone circle that is not only larger that Stonhenge (there's a village inside it), but is not all touristed, so you can still go up and touch them.
