Good time to travel to the UK for Americans?

It has been a long time since the dollar has been so strong against the British Pound.  Look at just the past ten days.  I wonder if there are any shows on the West End worth going over for (if one could afford the airfare, that is)?

Ben - and all Ben's readers be aware that the top bit of Ireland is in the UK and still uses 's and not Euros. It is also the bit that I live in and more recently Mr Mooney .o0(Does that make it better or worse?)

Not only are we nice and cheap for American travellers we also have very good Guinness but we do have a funny accent.

@Steve - "funny accent" is the biggest understatement ever. :)
