Was just there a couple weeks back. One of the best parts was Highgate cemetary. Place was amazing. If you go, one side you can roam around in unguided for a couple pounds, the other side is a guided tour. Get the guided tour...that gets you access to both sides and the guided side is older and way worth it.

There was a really good pub just up the hill from it too called Angel Inn.

As far as flea market type stuff Camden Lock Market was a staggering array of shit I'd never buy mixed with Chinese take out and record stalls. Plus theres a nice Brewdog outlet down the block if you want beer over 5% alcohol.

Other than that my wife just dragged me around to touristy shit for 4 days.

There's probably more tips in the London post I made last year if you do a search.

Goddamnit, I love that city. Thinking about a Christmas/New Year's 2015 trip.

If I fail math, there goes my chance at a good job and a happy life full of hard work.
