Visit London: 12 things to do in 12 weeks

Those planning to stay in central London hotels before the New Year have been advised on the top attractions to catch before they end in January by Visit London.

According to the local tourism group, there are just 12 weeks left until 2012 with 12 attractions for people to take advantage of.

"With many experiences only available until the end of the year – there has never been a better time to visit London," commented the group.

People were told they could discover their inner child and delve into the world of witches, wizards, faeries, elves, dragons, magicians and illusionists at the V&A Museum of Childhood's Magic Worlds exhibition.

Continuing the theme, the group suggests that theatre-lovers attend a performance of Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre.

Having only opened for the first time yesterday (October 18th), the show promises to bring the classic novel to life in the form of a musical.

The British Museum offers up Grayson Perry: The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman until January 8th.

Featuring an eclectic selection of objects from across the world, the exhibit also features Mr Perry's own artwork created especially for the museum.

"Take in the largest collection of works by the great master Leonardo Da Vinci, at one of the most exciting exhibitions this year," continues the group.

"Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan is at the National Gallery from November 9th."

Other attractions highlighted by the group include the colourful Lord Mayor's Show, the Design Museum's Terence Conran: The Way We Live Now, a Thanksgiving Feast at JW Steakhouse, as well as Museum of London Docklands, the London Eye and the traffic-free shopping event on Oxford Street.
