Londoners and why they move so quickly...
Ya see, we Londoners are at the whim of public transportation. Even if we allow 3 hours to travel 4 miles, the tubes/buses/trains will fail and we'll be late. So we walk, and unfortunately, we don't want to be at the whim of tourists standing in our way, so we hurry past, and if you step in our way, hey, you might get bumped. It isn't anything against you, we'd do it to light poles if they didn't hurt so much upon impact.
In general, if you are in a busy place, move quickly. If you can't do that, stand to the side. I know this all sound very negative, but it is the truth!
A few years ago, there was a move to put in slow and fast lanes on Oxford Street, and for good reason. It is a VERY busy place, and if one person walks slowly or stops, they can hold up A LOT of people.

The Internet Cafe right opposite Victoria Train Station will give you lots of up to date info while you are actually In London.
Quite handy, lots of Screens!
Old Fashioned public telephone box
If you need to make a phone call try and find an public telephone box. London is famous for the red telephone box (pictured) but are being taking over from the the more modern style.
Somtimes they are in a bit of mess so be warned, its a shame as they are apart of London History. They are really handy for Londers when they have no access to a mobile.
Can London be cheap?
Of course my answer is yes (otherwise no tip).
National museums are always free but if you want, you can leave your contribution. Moreover, audiophones' rent are not that expensive as I expected. I think it's a very good and fair thing for London's inhabitants firstly but also for tourist. You can take your time to visit all museums, visiting one hour per day also the British Museum is accessible. I couldn't figure out to stay there all day long in order to see as much as possible.
London is the city of musicals...
London is the city of musicals and theatres! Use them! It is terrific.
I've been to London for 3 months and I loved it!
I watched 5 musicals and 3 plays. If you go directly to the theatre you can get the tickets you want. If you need some exitement in your ticket hunting try one of the Half Price Ticket Shops at Leceister Square. From 2 pm on they sell tickets for the evening but sometimes not for the theatre you choose. But give it a try if you got the time.
