Getting blind drunk in local clubs and pubs and working is about all i know sorry.
I live a very simple life and don't ask for much. Which is good becuase in Kent there isn't much (i lied about the blind drunk part, not that there isn't enough pubs but i just don't drink...much). If its history you want to explore than there is a rather alot of it in England. But without ever being a tourist to my own country i can't really say.
Nevertheless Sights to see are!
2. Museuems (trust me some in London are really fun!)
4. Games-Workshop! What just me then?
5. And some more Pigeons
I hope you like your stay! Remember to pack a water proof coat and some extra pairs of socks. And watch out for the washing machines they operate alot more openly and actively in England...

Ignore SDETT, there's more than just pidgeons lol.
Unfortunately I've never been to that part of England but I do no London would not not be the best Idea for a day trip. Its very crowded at this time of year ... unless you go on a weekend then its virtually empty coz of prices lol.
Museums are a good idea but there ar also lots f other stuff to see.
Soz if am not helping much just thought i'd have a say coz i used to live in england

I know England fairly well from a turist point of view, having a mother suffering from Anglophilia and having the same illness myself XD My familiy have been to England.... at least 20 times since I was born =P And I am not even 20 yet XD
Well, some advices/personal options on England in general:
Walk! Unless you hate foot trips I suggest you walk a lot, just ask at your hotel/bnb/TI for nice walking paths, put on some walking shoes and your off!^^ England really has one of the most astonishingly beautiful culture landscapes in the world.
The villages are usually quite tight packed as well, so it’s never too far to the closest pub and some refreshment. AND, they serve the best ale and cider in the world^^
A really beautiful city, just spending some time wandering around looking at the collages is definitively a must. At least if you like historical buildings etc.
John and Edith Tolkien’s gave is also a must in my option. At least if you’re fond of his works. It is found in a nice and quiet graveyard in the northern parts of Oxford, a walk able distance from the city centre.
Blenheim palace also lies to the north by Woodstock, but that’s further away, you’d need a cab or buss or some such. Supposedly a place worth visiting, sadly never had the time myself though, yet at least =P
Pitt Rivers Museum is nice if you like archaeology and such, a wonderful museum.
Where to begin? As…. I believe George Bernard Shaw said, if you’re tired of London you’re tired of life. It’s quite true XD But some personal musts sees can be found below.
British Museum, this really is a must. I would be tempted to say you’d have to visit it in order to live a meaningful life XD At least if you are remotely interested in History. Entrance is free of charge and you can stay there all day. Ohh and if your going there, in order to see it all you’d need minimum 1-2 full days. Though you can always choose your favourite epochs/countries and do that in a few hours time.
221B Bakers Street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The residence of Sherlock Holmes^^ (Well… the fictional residence XD But the house is real enough) It is now a museum which show many of his famous chases and also how a house looked in the 1800s.
Madam Tussauds, a really funny museum worth a visit, they have a vax figure of pretty much all famous people in history, and a few more XD
Imperial War Museum, again a must see, especially if you like history/WW2/tanks etc O.o
Whitehall district and the Parliament (Including Big Ben), definitively worth a visit, yet I am unsure when it is open to public and when it ain’t.
The Tower of London, again something for those who like History (As I do XD), really interesting place, a huge collection of medieval thingies. Also house the crown jewels etc.
Shakespear’s Globe host a wide variety of shows worth watching, obviously a lot of plays, but I have also seen medieval combat shows there.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, if there is such a thing as THE pub in London, then the cheese is it. Located in Fleetstreet is has been visited by pretty much any notable author in late British history, or so it claims XD Oliver Goldsmith, Mark Twain, Alfred Tennyson and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as Dr. Samuel Johnson are all said to have been 'regulars'. It is dead small, cramped an cosy^^
Hyde park and Speakers Corner, a nice change from the big city and there are still peoples expressing their options on the corner, funny stuff =P
You should… Well you get my point XD The things to see in London simply never ends. Regents park, Oxford Street, Trafalgar Square, The Tate Gallery.
Also when it comes to Transport around London (Walking would take a while) I find two methods preferable (Maybe cos I am a poor student? XD). The busses or the London Underground, the underground faster and the busses allow you to see more. Both sell day passes and ticket batches etc, deals which gives you a lot of cheap travels.
Mad ideas if you like those:
1. Cycle/walk along the Themes as far as you get from Oxford to London.
2. Travel in the footsteps of mr Pickwick!
Mheee, that was a quick guide. And I didn't even get to nightlife O.o But I guess you can figure that out yourselves^^ For meals then I suggest Pubs as much as possible, unless you want proper food XD
