Birthday surprises

Hi I'm coming to London to spend time with my partner who is a London resident (I'm Australian). I'm trying to find out some cool quirky things to do for her birthday as a surprise any suggestions?

Depends on when you are visiting, your ages and likes/dislikes etc.

Rib boat ride on the Thames, Ghost Walk, if Duck tours are going again they are good fun, tea at the Ritz....Vista roof bar at the Trafalgar

Lots of horse racing courses around London. You can book a table in the restaurant overlooking the finishing line and have a meal and that is your table for the day so A Day at the Races is one idea

If you want to combine it with a catchup and/or it's romantic (can't tell from OP - sorry :) ) then I recommend a few glasses at the top of Tower 42 in the Champange Bar ( Vertigo 42 - http://www.vertigo42.co.uk/gallery.php ) particularly ~40 mins before sunset until an hour after sunset. It's strictly bookings only, no walk ups but you can often book at lunchtime for the same evening.
