So my parents want to go o a vacation this summer and England was brought up. It's my absolute dream to go there, and I need a little help convincing them. I want to go there for WWRY, Garden Lodge, stalking Brian May (lol jk),and just experiencing the city. Unfortunately, they are not Queen fans and are very schedule-istic. So if you've visited London or live there, what do you think are the best attractions?

Leicester Square.. and Freddie's house are a must for you and your parents will like it.

Once you've gone to Freddie's House.. take the tube at Earl's Court.. that way you can see that as well in a glimps lol.

do a couple of days in the city doing the tower of london,big ben,the natural history museum and the london eye and then head out westwards towards Cornwall and into the countryside and clean air.as its-a-hard-life says the tube is your oyster in london,once you get past the smell of burnt flesh and lightheadness due to the lack of fresh air.

Madame Thussauds rocks! Visit Buckingham Palace and the Museums which are all quite cool. Then there are all the shops and the shows! And I can go on and on lol. I love London I'm so glad I live there.

the only problem i have with madame two sods as i call it is the queueing to get in the place.i dont know what its like now,but it used to be horrendous.is Rock Circus with all the rock star models still in piccadilly circus? if so,thats a good place to go to as is the London Dungeon.the British Museum [not to be confused with the dinosaurs at the natural history museum]with the egyptain artefacts is good too.

I could totally see the family vacation turning into a quest looking for Freddie's statue and chasing poor Brian May who is begging "Leave me alone!" haha. No wonder he's depressed. :P I wonder how many Queen fans who travel to London for vacation list "Stalking Brian May" as one of their must dos. =D If I visited England, I think I would also do the same. HAHA. I'd definitely want to see Freddie's home, statue, and maybe stalk Brian May! We Queen fans are so crazy/obsessed. :P

Definitely check out the WWRY Musical here in London.

Chances are, you might meet Brian and Roger.

Well, today was the 5th year anniversary for the musical. I happened to be there and wait outside and I met them. So it's worth it. You just have to know your info well.
