    The best London markets (IMHO) are at (in no particular order)

    1) Portobello
    2) Old Spitalfields
    3) Petticoat Lane
    4) Greenwich
    5) Borough
    6) Camden

    I think its the best way to learn a little history in each cities.

    I would say that 8-10 days is not enough, go for 14 if you can. London is a busy busy place so if you want to see the famous places then you need no less than 4 days there. Prices there are high, as in Paris...so I'd suggest chosing cheaper places to stay in as you can then save up this money to spend on the trip..or whatever you like

    Some suggestions -

    London - West end musicals, Chinatown, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Strand, Oxford Street (check out Selfridges exotic fruits section where they sell our local Asian fruits for exotic prices)...

    Amsterdam - You should make a slight detour to Keukenhof (the array of flowers is pretty mindblowing)...
    http://www.keukenhof.nl/

    Paris - Eiffel tower
    1) Go up top of Notre Dame towards evening time and watch Eiffel Tower slowly start to glow
    2) I remembered reading Lonely PLanet book suggesting to stop a few stations away from Eiffel Tower itself. Then take a leisure stroll and take pics of the gorgeous monument. Start your journey late afternoon and capture the same effect as point (1) above
    I can't seem to google the details of this walk though, so you'll need to get the Lonely planet book.
    3) Walk up Eiffel tower instead of taking the lift...

    Best time to go: Probably summer as you'll have more daylight to look see look see...

    Cant help but love these threads about what to see in London and the UK. I guess the first thing I always say to people is dont just confine yourself to London - there is so much more to see around the UK and its so easy to get around from London. There are loads of tour companies who run these or you could easily hire a car and head out on the M4 or A303 and see some of the fabulous places the UK has to offer. You can take day trips to see places like Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath (see here) for example.

    One of the key places I would visit though if in the UK would be the amazing Cotswolds, head to somewhere like Bibury and have a lovely pub lunch while experience this tranquil village - its so typically English and a long way from what you would ever experience in London!
