Never figured out why alot of countries like to make the passenger drive.

As for nightlife, stay the hell away from Spearmint Rhino. Going in there, even for " a laugh" on a friend's Stag night, will not end well. If you're into actual, genuine clubbing (Not a dark room that plays pop music dancing around mutton dressed as Lamb, which most "clubs" tend to be) i'd sugggest looking up the club FWD>>. New Dubstep, dance and D'n'B, guarantees a night of epic proportions.

Atttractions wise, there is the staple Big Ben, London Eye, Madam Tussad's Waxworks etc. Depending on how strong your accent is, you could venture into some of the outlying suburbs of London to see income disparity at its worst. And if that's not enough, there's a new past time of smashing things going around. So join in, shout about how poor you are and tell everyone from your iPhone.
