    Sew your pockets up so you don't get picked and wear a stab vest if you're a teenager ;)

    Depends what you want really.

    The major museums are free so make the most of it.
    The Natural History and Science musems are next to each other down in Knightsbridge. The Imperial War museum is probably worth a visit too..
    Greenwich is really nice with the observatory and the park.

    Have a look at the London Pass too.

    http://www.londonpass.com/

    Not only does it save you money if going to a few of the attractions, it can save a LOT of queueing time as most venues have special pass queues.

    how old are you, and what are your interests?

    There is an unbelievable number of museums, most of which are free, it is arguably one of the best cities in the world for this type of thing.

    obviously its a great place to go shopping or eat out, and the nightlife is great - but we really need to know a bit more about yourself?

    In the same situation myself. Have two free tickets (via an official there) for Wimbledon, but as I'm not that interested in tennis, was planning one day at the tennis and one day in the centre of London. The British Museum was what I had intended.

    Do a museum or two. I live in london and will be visiting the british museum this week, or maybe the science or natural history museum. I love them, AND, they're free. :)

    There's also the Tate Modern if you want contemporary art.
