I am going to London with my girlfriend at the end of the month for 3 days, where should I go to see some busking (of course I'd prefer to see some escapes) ? What shop should I visit ? Any other nice places to check out (not the usual tourist stuff like big ben or what ever I already know those Smile ) ?

Thankssss

Covent Garden has a lot of busking. Also the walkway along the south side of the Thames. There's a pard there, near Victoria Station.

There's probably more, but that's what I know.

Check Lucifire, and find out if she's performing somewhere. I'm not sure that she does escapes, but you'll see some great "sideshow" work.

Oops, sorry. It's PARK, not PARD.

Yes..Covent Garden is the place to be. You might see some fire juggling but I've never seen any escapes while I've been down there. It's really touristy, but it's an experience if you've never been. All the buskers there have to register, and are given a time slot, so there's no casual busking, but you might get lucky and see a mailbag escape. Have a good time. Not sure if you're into magic shops, but the 2 best ones are Davenports in the Charing Cross subway shopping arcade, or International Magic in Clerkenwell Road (not far from Kings Cross rail station)

You could check out The London Eye, the Ferris Wheel by the River Thames. You can't miss it, and it's a nice slow trip, and you can see for miles. Well worth it, day or night.

Hope you enjoy your visit.
