If you've already been to the House of Commons and seen the MPs debating, then why not try the London Assembly at City Hall?

Once a month the 25 London Assembly members gather together to grill the Mayor of London about his policies. Boris Johnson has long gone now, of course, because we've got a new Mayor now: Labour's Sadiq Khan. Craig has been to City Hall and written a review of Sadiq Khan's performance. You can ask Craig a question about Mayor's Question's Time on his blog.

Even if you can't make the date to see the Mayor, then City Hall is still worth a visit. (Craig's written a separate review of City Hall as well.) The public can go inside and climb the spiral ramp to the second floor, where you'll find the assembly chamber. The spiral ramp has some great views of the Thames, including a very fine one of the Tower of London across the water. The lower-ground floor usually contains a London-themed exhibition of photos, drawings or stories. There is a cafe downstairs as well, where you can have a bite to eat, and rub shoulders with the City Hall staff and eavesdrop on their conversations.

If you enjoy political debates then try and get a ticket for House of Commons and Prime Minister's Questions as well (read Craig's review). The Common Council at Guildhall is also worth a try. You can look at our complete list of political events and debates in London here.

After you've been to see the Mayor there are plenty of other landmarks and attractions nearby. The obvious one is Tower Bridge. Or you can walk over the bridge and see the Tower of London. Or how about going onboard the WWII battlecruiser HMS Belfast?
