Ok have done all the museums to death, so looking for some new ideas if possible. Would like to take ds (15) in, we haven't been to London for 6 months or so.

May also bring one of his friends, but if I do that it will really be more a matter of making sure they get though the tube system ok and leaving them to their own devices for an hour or so.

DS is mad on gaming, not intersted in clothes shopping.

Any ideas gratefully received!

Sorry I've only got girls who love clothes shopping and watching Musicals. DD2 19 even weht to the Zoo when she went to visit DD1. So I'm really only bumping this for you.

Have you looked on the TimeOut London site?

I also only have girls!

DS is quite fond of visiting the huge HMV on oxford street and going into some sort of "looking at games" trance.

Thanks. HMV would definitely be up his street. He has q. a lot of birthday money left so would be in game heaven!

The Ice Bar - total rip-off but he'd definitely gain a few 'cool' points with his friends.

Yes anything music related and what about a tour of one of the London football clubs.
