Get your tickets at the metro station near the tower for the tower of London otherwise you could stand in line a very long ime at the tower itself.

Slightly OT -- but not too far: Has anyone got the definitive recipe for the much-praised Sticky Toffee Pudding? I have to make it at home, can't wait for my next trip! (Last visit I bought one from M&S food dept, and it was excellent.)

This is from Helen's British cooking website.

If you prefer, use pecan nuts instead of walnuts in this delightfully gooey pudding.
Serves 6
Toasted walnuts - 115g (4 oz), chopped
Butter - 175g (6 oz), softened
Soft brown sugar - 175g (6 oz)
Double cream - 4 tbsp
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp
Eggs - 2
Self raising flour - 115g (4 oz)
Grease a 900 ml (2 pint) pudding basin and add half the nuts. Heat 50g (2 oz) of the butter with 50g (2 oz) of the sugar, the cream and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a small pan, stirring until smooth. Pour half into the pudding basin, then swirl to coat it a little way up the sides.
Beat the remaining butter and sugar until fluffy, then gradually beat in the eggs. Fold in the flour and the remaining nuts and lemon juice and spoon into the basin. Cover the basin with greaseproof paper with a pleat folded in the centre, then tie securely with string.
Steam the pudding for about 1� hours, until set in the centre. Just before serving, gently warm the remaining sauce. Unmould the pudding on to a warm plate and pour over the warm sauce.

Delia Smith has a sticky toffee pudding recipe.

If you go to her website

She has a search facility.

My favorite dessert is the Treakle(SP?) Sponge that I had Sherlock Holmes restaurant (upstairs from the pub). The wife & kids liked it so much that we had to go back a couple times during the same stay. & the next stay, that is the first place they wanted to go to for supper. It is a custard/vanilla type pudding over a sponge cake. It is excellent. But next time it looks like we should try the sticky toffee too.

Bill, I loved that treacle tart at the Sherlock Holmes, too. I think the only solution is to order both it and the sticky toffee pudding and eat one bite from each until they are gone and then try to figure out which was best as you loosen your belt.
