Calling from puplic phone to outside UK is expensive so you can buy some prepaid calling card , they are cheap and can call anyone .
there is too much kind so ask the seller for the best card for the destenation you want to call
Keep in touch with folks back home with a host of calling cards. There are lots of calling cards at offer for people willing to call anywhere in the world. The costliest places to call despite using a card is Asia, Middle east and Africa. The cheapest places are US, Australasia and Europe. These cards are found at most of the shops all over London and on high streets.
Priced at 5, 10 and 20 pounds, u get these cards all over London. In central london u will get these cards at exactly the same rate as it it printed on the card, but if u wud to care to save a lil, u might as well buy these cards in east london or west london where they are quite cheap, ex u will geta 5 pound card for 3.50. So if u intend to stay in the Uk for a long time make a single trip to east or west london n grab a few cards to last a fortnigth.
Fondest memory: i got lucky once and a 5 pound card, which usually gives 30 mins of talktime gave me a whooping 55 mins!!!
I suggest you get a map from www.londontown.com
It's only 2.95pounds and they ship it for free!
They will send you a superb 2D/3D map of London including an Underground (Tube) map. The 3D map is awesome and it shows you all the great places to go. Very useful.
Buy The London Pass (1 to 7 days) in advance from your country! It gives you free entry to almost all major sites. I bought mine for 2 days, 45 Euros from Finland. It has many options for rain and shine. Entry or discounts for attractions, museums, cruises, evening program, etc. A real bargain if you buy it in advance!

Fondest memory: British atmosphere is just amazing!
Fondest memory: The mime artists in Covent Garden were absolute class. So were the performing acrobats, even though they were visibly getting tired. Beefy at http://www.geocities.com/beefnetuk

Listen folks it's all been said before, the guide books will tell you all about London, it really depends what you like to do.
There is all life there. Bronze Statues and real humans, but!!(There's always a but!)
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!
Favorite thing: I am sure that if ET saw these public phone booth's he would have been there more often to phone home and might even have gotten through to his space ship. I love the red phone boxes.
Favorite thing: Buy a copy of Time Out, London's weekly listings magazine. Or visit the Time Out website http://www.timeout.com/london
