Im looking forward to hitting the British musuem and the Natural History museum as well as seeing some British indie films.
Don't forget to check out the Imperial War Museum. Overall its an excellent museum that covers the various wars that GB has been involved in, but they have an exhibit on Naziism and the holocaust that completely blew me away. This exhibit alone is worth the trip.

Also take a tour of the Tower of London. That is where the crown jewels are displayed as well as all sorts of medeival weapons, armor etc. The tour is also excellent as they tell you a lot of the history of the Tower.

When I go to London, I'm going to drink and go to the museums at the same time. The idea is to stay medicated and keep your wits about.
It's actually a good strategy and one I highly recommend. I have a fairly short attention span and so can only stay in museums for an hour or two. Hitting pubs in between seeing sites is great in London because there are pubs absolutely everywhere.

Absolutely, drinking in between visiting landmarks and see the Museums and the Tower of London sounds like a great idea, and I can drink my pint on the streets too. I can't wait.

I've seen it before but I'm going back for sure, I didn't see even half of it last time, I was young too so I didn't appreciate it, but now I will

I haven't been to the Natural History musuem? Is it good? Anyone been?

Haven't been but the Tate Modern and Science Museum are both good places to go (sober or not) and best of all, they're free.
