My mother and I are visiting London this September. It has been a long time since my last visit (five/six years or so) and in the past all my visits have been hospital based. This is our first *real* sightseeing trip in London and we would love any suggestions, particularly those with a gothic/spooky theme - or even of those of historical interest in general.
For example, we are hoping to go on the Highgate cemetery tour - anyone know if it is any good? Do you have any hidden gems outside of the major attractions to share?
Also, we would definately consider anything that is outside the area of london (roughly an hour away or so)
Thanks in advance!
