2 weeks in England Night Time tourismHello I'm 22 years old and will be going to London for 2 weeks around November, I'm travelling alone but will be staying at my cousins house.
The only thing is my cousins are 20 years older than me and have day time jobs, they decided to take 1 week off for me but the 2nd week i'll pretty much be on my own.
I'm wondering what I can do while they're working or what are some of my options for going out at night. I don't really want to feel cooped up all day and would really like to experience London at night. They have kids so I know they wouldn't be able to tour me around after sun down.
Any opinions will be helpful thanks.

2You'll be fine on your own as long as you know where you're going and how to get home. you could go and check out the oxford street christmas lights (usually go on early November), or go to the theatre/musical. Another option if you're into that sort of thing is a Jack the Ripper night walking tour - google should help you find one.

4You could try a guided pub walk. I believe there are walks where they take you round classic London pubs in a group, with drinking time.
Theatres are open as long as the play is. If you mean cinemas, many of those open late. Several museums have evening openings, usually on a Wed or Thurs if that floats your boat.
Whereabouts are you staying? You'll need to check transport back to your cousin's house - time of last tube/night buses.
Central London is fun and pretty safe at night.

5geeg offered a good suggestion about "Walks". London Walks offers several Pub Walks - and they're a great way to learn things and meet people. Check out their other walks as well.

7You might want to check out supper clubs in London- these are run by people in their own homes. Some are more restaurant- like but others are more like going to a dinner party. I've been to one run by a friend of mine loads of times and there are often people there who are travelling to london alone. Hers is called White Room Supper Club, and is based near Old St tube.
