16Definitely go to Sir John Soane's museum and the Wallace Collection. I also recommend the Anish Kapoor exhibition at the Royal Academy and the Turner exhibition at the Tate Britain, but book tickets in advance.
Hampsted Heath will still be nice for a couple weeks, but if it's raining make sure to wear wellies or boots. It gets really muddy there in the winter.
As for food, there's a great pub in Belgravia called the Thomas Cubitt and a good place for lunch called Jenny Lo's Tea House (by Victoria Station). I love Daylesford Organic on Pimlico Road, too, but it's pricey.

17If you follow no.4's suggestion and walk along the Thames from Putney, stop by the Bricklayer's Arms , which was just voted CAMRA London pub of the year.
Don't go on the first Thursday of the month, unless you're into S and M! http://www.putneymunch.org.uk/
The walk from Putney onwards is fantastic, feels like you're in the countryside.

20Thanks for all the suggestions - I just got back from London on the weekend. I had a great time on the Fuller's tour, and I enjoyed the canal tour as well (took the Jason's tour).
