    Visit the Young's Brewery in Wandsworth. As soon as you get off the train, you'll smell the malt. They still deliver the beer by horse and carriage within a mile radius of the brewery.

    Regent's Park - a nice place for some fresh air, walk around beautiful gardens and lakes, and may be a short visit to London Zoo in the park.

    Some places only an hour or so from London I have put under Dover. It may be worth looking there, if you have a car while you are visiting!

    Adjacent to College Garden is Fountain Court and St Katherine's Garden formed in what was the chapel, after the roof collapsed. The gargoyle now sits on the ground!
