The International Date Line is a loooooong way from Greenwich. Greenwich is 0°, the date line is 180° on the other side of the world. Just thought I'd mention that

One place that appears not to have been mentioned and all museums are a matter of personal interest but if you have ANY technical bent, you cannot go past the Science Museum. I spent a whole day in there and never saw more than half of it. It is spectacular.

See it here: Science Museum, London
