Astro Sites with Archeological significance in London?

1st time visiting London with family maybe in early July and has at least 5 days to spare.

Re: Eco Farm Kluang - 31 May to 2 Jun 2014 with VJC Astro Cl

Good job Mr Lee & VJC astro! [smilie=good-job.gif] Base on photos alone, noticed the CATs were without dew shields. Any condensation issue throughout the nights?
