In London for a few weeks

I am currently in London for a few weeks and I was wondering if there are any places to stop by that are related to Land Rovers, particularly the D90s. Recommend any musuems? I hit the Conventry one today and they had a series 1 fire truck. That was cool.

I am hoping to get a chance to take a tour of the LR factory. Any other places?

Thanks.

Hit Solihul while it is still there--who knows what Ford will do with it. I also took the bus up into Finchley and went to Scorpion Racing. Toted a couple rear extended shock mounts back with me--cost me about $89. They have a lot of accessories and pretty good prices even though the British Pound is strong against the dollar.
