Both aw and Spacer would make outstanding mods as I think they're about as normal as we have around here.

Planning on going to London for a Fulham game next season. (Obviously, I will also need to blow up the Jackson statue while I'm there as well.) Also probably going to go to Lafayette's grave in Paris. Any other suggestions?

find a pub near your hotel and spend a lot of time getting drunk with the locals. catch a show, ride the Eye, the museum of modern art, the british museum, the tower, the victoria and albert are all awesome.

stay away from the clink prison museum. uber cheesy.

Mook, The Imperial War Museam has great history of WWI and WWII. Don't miss Westminter Abbey and if you can get a tour to Straford On Avon and the Cotswalds thats well worth it.

Also, if you like Chinese resturants. London has a real nice Chinatown at Licester Square, not near as big as San Fransico or NY, but some excellent Asian food.

dont forget to eat the beef chow mein at le ho fuks. get your picture taken crossing abby road. westminster and st pauls are incredible. turn toward the river at st pauls and cross the bridge to the tate modern. then cross back and walk upriver to the Tower.

Largely I'm just letting my brother plan it. We haven't set a date or time span yet. Back over Christmas when I was home visiting the subject of Premiership came up and I mentioned that I'd like to see a game at Craven Cottage some time. He quickly said he was in. I said I needed a passport. He said, Once you get your passport, I'll make the arrangements. So I got my passport and he is now starting the planning. He said it would be easy enough to go to Paris and asked if there was anything else in London or the rest of Great Britian, or nearby in the mainland I'd like to see. I added Lafayette and thats about it so far. I think a couple more suggestions would be good, but he has been to England and France numerous times and since he is going through the trouble of doing all the planning, largely I'd like him to pick stuff he wants to do/see.

Mook--send me your email--I'll send links you can forward to your brother. London very much depends on WHAT your personal tastes are as it accomodates everything--from a button museum to the very much 'need to see' Imperial War Museum' and all the others in between on every subject you can think of. here's a for instance--in trafalgar square --looking at it from facingg the National Gallery on the right is a Church called St. Martins in the Fields--in the CRYPT of said church is a neat little restaurant (nice gift shop too) where in the afternoon you can get a "cream tea" a scone (a proper one!) devon cream and strawberry jam and a pot of tea and various little sanwiches. These cream teas are very popular and in the more famous places like the Ritz, Browns, etc can run you £30 per person!
