Any ideas?

I am brazenly unashamed about sending out requests via this blog. The blogging world is an amazing place and is populated with people who in my experience are kind and interesting and decent....and are fast becoming my 'go to' people for advice.
So what am I after?
Well, Me and the Mister will be in London next Monday and wonder if there is anything that would be fun and interesting (and cheap or free) to do between about 2 and 7...for a few hours...that's all.
A recommendation. We have a few ideas but would appreciate any thoughts.
Can you help?
Don't worry if the answer is no....and thanks for taking the time to read this.

The last time we were in London we did a BBC Tour of their Television Centre in Shepherd's Bush. It's a really interesting couple of hours (ish, might be less) for £9.95 each. And you might spot a star or two!

There is space on the tours next Monday afternoon (there's one at 1.45pm)

Here's the link:

Natural history museum - always a winner.

Edinburgh and Glasgow? Yep.
London? It's been years. I wouldn't even know if the portrait gallery was still free.
I used to like the South Bank though

For me it would have to be a boat trip down the river to Greenwich. Lots to take in then when you get there, the Cutty Sark,Maritime Museum (for Hubby), delightful French Restaurant where you can have afternoon coffee on the verandah then when you disembark, a stroll along the Embankment (the book stalls are worth a look), taking it all in.Enjoy whatever you end up doing.x
