Default ENGLAND BEWARE! (HELP NEEDED!)

HIDE YOUR BEER AND LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS!

I and a selected group of Norwegian neckbeards are crossing the sea over to Britain.
Finally, I have finished my military service and it's time for a vacation. (First one in 5 years that is...)

We will mainly be located in London, but will also take a trip to Nottingham and going reverse Vikings in the GW headquarters. (They will be robbing us...)
I, as the literate tard that I am, will probably be buying a perverse amount of books...and add a larger vehicle section to my Waaaaagh!

We've been planning this trip well, but still there are questions unanswered.

What are the opening hours at GW in Nottingham? (the nutters haven't written that on their page... :P)

What is the most British item purchasable to a decent price? (Gift ideas?)

In which Establishment in London would we find the best beer and finest women?

Several in my group only speak American-English, and the knowledge of Queens-English is limited to "Toff, toff. Steady on ol' chap. Isn't cricket just dashing."
We need more British lines!

Also, as Norsemen, we made quite a bit of British history in the past, (Invasions and such...) and we'd enjoy seeing some of that. Any sites of history to recommend?

I addition, we cannot leave without doing something really, really English. (stereotype-wise.)

Anyone care to help me and lads out? With both the questions and other recommendations for our trip?

Most appriciated.

King Winter.

There are a ridiculous amount of bars and clubs in London, so I wouldn't know what to suggest drinkwise. It should be far cheaper than Norway though! You may well be able to just wonder around looking for places, but my advice is to do an internet search, as there should be exactly the kind of bar you are looking for somewhere. You should be mostly OK with American English, as we all know it anyway. Gifts... You wil lbe able to find numerous trinkets enblazoned with the Union Jack. The most genuinly Britich thing I can think of however are crumpets.

Minako, have you ever been to Oslo? Most expensive city I've ever been in. And I live in London.

Near where I live there's an open air museum which sometimes does Viking re-enactments. It's in Chalfont St Giles, you'd need to book a taxi to get there though and it might be expensive. They also have various buildings from different eras (think there's a viking one).

Anyway, that's a taxi ride from Amersham station. We're on either the Metropolitan line from Baker Street (last stop) or the chiltern line from Marylebone.



As for American English, I think you'll get by. Also, I think your "proper" English might need revising, Dashing means handsome. In this case, spiffing would be more appropriate.
