Good ol’ London Town… the capital and largest city in the United Kingdom is a bustling, multicultural community, and a trendy, central European hub for all things art, culture, music and fashion! Home to the Queen, James Bond, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, there’s no shortage of sights to see, places to visit and things to do in London. We’ve tabled a few of our favorites below – don’t miss them next time you’re in town!
Sip Prohibition Tea at Quaglino’s
Founded all the way back in the 1920s, Quaglino’s is the first public restaurant ever visited by Queen Elizabeth II (or any British monarch, for that matter). This upscale eatery offers a different kind of afternoon tea. Accompany Quaglino’s classic savory scones and delectable sandwiches with their fine assortment of cocktails.
Shop ‘til you drop
London is an amazing shopping destination. If you like department stores, you’re in retail heaven! Street shopping in Knightsbridge, Oxford Street and Regent Street is incredible. Drop into Harrods, or check out flagship stores of designer names like Gucci and Jimmy Choo!
Sit at the Kitchen Table
Hidden away behind Bubbledogs in Fitzrovia, this 19-seater Michelin Star restaurant offers a unique experience. Interact with the kitchen and watch them prepare dishes from a menu that changes daily. Booking in advance is highly recommended.
Get Fishy at Golden Union Fish Bar
Indulge in some fish n’ chips and a pint – come on, you know you want to! Flaky, sustainably-caught fish and a top-notch selection of beers make this retro-styled fish ‘n chippery an excellent choice.
Party at the Rumpus Room
Located at the Mondrian Hotel on the South Bank, the Rumpus Room offers spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding London metropolis. It’s a chic and sexy place to chill, inspired by a classic 1920s-style theme.
Relax at Dalston Roof Park
Open during summer months, this traditional English Garden screens films powered by solar panels! It also offers excellent food and drinks.
Feast at Lotus Restaurant
A vibrant, multicultural city, London is known for its delectable Indian cuisine. Located near the National Gallery, Lotus offers an excellent and affordable set lunch that includes items such as its iconic masala prawns and lamb chops.
Catch a football game at Pavilion End
There’s nothing more British than watching a football (or soccer) match over a few beers in a busy pub. We like Pavilion End due to its great location, fabulous facilities, and reasonable prices.
