In a diverse and multicultural city, you can find cuisines from all over the world. Whatever your appetite needs, you can find it. We suggest going for a walk in Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Soho and find a nice, cosy restaurant to dine. And since money matters, London has corners for every pocket: From a tasty BLT (Bacon Lettuce Tomato) sandwich from Greggs to posh dining at the docks of Thames River, you can find everything you need at the price you want.
Shop until you drop!
Shopping in London is a unique experience. For popular brands in the city centre, we suggest a walk in Regent Street and in Oxford Street (especially at Selfridges) or at Harrods in Knightsbridge for a shopping spree. If you wish to combine your shopping with food in a more traditional area, we suggest taking a walk in Covent Garden and in Camden Lock, where you can find some amazing local shops with some hidden shopping gems. If you belong to the people that adore shopping malls, then you must go for a short trip to Wembley at the London Designer Outlet for some amazing shopping experience or a short trip to Oxford to visit the lovely city and get some branded clothes at a good price at Bicester Village.
Nightlife, Great fun!
As a city that has everything, you can find anything you need in London. You can find great food and great atmosphere in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy some food and live music or you can go in a nice salsa bar and do your moves or even learn how to dance. If your romantic side calls, then you should try visiting one of the bars with a view such as Aqua Shard (London Bridge), Coq d’ Argent (Mansion House), Madison (St. Paul’s Cathedral) and Kensington Roof Gardens (at Kensington- an ideal place for a summer night). Other than these areas, we recommend Soho, Camden (by the canal) and Leicester Square for a stroll in the crowd and then in Covent Garden in a nice bar for a drink. For the club-goers, nightlife in London is just vibrant and amazing. From the all-time classic Ministry of Sound to Cargo (Shoreditch) and from KOKO (Shoreditch) to Electric Brixton (in Brixton), you have a variety of clubs to dance the night away.
Kids! Do not miss out in London!
And if you think that London does not offer anything for the family, we suggest to think twice! The city has many thematic parks that will make children enjoy every moment: Shrek’s Adventure (in South Bank) with the story of the famous character, the Chessington World of Adventures with its rollercoasters, Legoland (Windsor) in a city build with the famous bricks and the Warner Bros Studios with the Harry Potter studio.
