I like walking along the Thames, from the London Eye past the Globe Theatre to Southwark Cathedral. Once you have managed to get through the crowds waiting their turns for the Eye, you can turn right and just keep walking.
Last summer there were many street performers there, it was fun to watch. A couple of tables full with boxes of used books invited us to browse through them. The further we walked , the less crowded it was and when we reached the pub The Anchor, we were actually able to get a table outside on the terrace, overlooking the Thames.The perfect spot for a break.
If you're interested in Shakespeare, the Globe Theatre shop is a good place. Apart from his plays they had good information about Elizabethan times and customs available, also of course the usual souvenirs with "Shakespeare" written on them.
