Visiting London next week. Any suggestions for places to visit beyond the standard tours. My wife cannot walk to long a distance. Vern H

Aside from using public transportation, maybe a suggestion would be to use the hop-on-hop-off bus for sightseeing in London. The stops leave you close to the venue with not that much walking. For touring further afield, maybe talk with the concierge at your hotel and ask which companies provide group tours in smaller vehicles that can park closer to the site you are visiting. Those tours may cost a bit more, as they are smaller-group, but would be more comfortable for your wife.

My husband and I both found the Old Operating Theatre fascinating, and not much walking is involved. See http://oldoperatingtheatre.com/. Another place is Leadenhall Market, an over-the-top covered Victorian marketplace. There's the Churchill War Rooms, where he conducted the business of WWII. If your wife's up for it, there are several smaller unique museums: the Geffrye Museum (recreations of centuries of the interiors middle class English homes), Dennis Severs' House - hard to describe, see https://www.dennissevershouse.co.uk/, the recently restored Art Deco Eltham Palace, Sir John Soane's Museum (art, antiquities, etc.). Some of the old historic pubs are attractions in themselves, google it and visit a few - you'll be rewarded, refreshed, and well fed.
