The writer Samuel Johnson put it best when he wrote ‘…when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.’ There is so much to see and do in this capital city that it is simply impossible to cram it all in during a short visit. A thoroughly cosmopolitan city, you’ll be able to eat your way through the world’s cuisines, or shop from London’s very own up-and-coming designers, without venturing too far.
Southbank Centre – This large complex encompasses the Royal Festival Hall, the Hayward Gallery and the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Expect to see a diverse range of cultural events happening side by side – from blockbuster art exhibitions to spoken word performances by little-known writers. Where else do you except to find punk legend Henry Rollins performing only steps away from the London Sinfonietta?
Camden Market – Almost as many tourists come to Camden Market to gawk at its colourfully outfitted denizens as to actually shop. The sprawling market is best known for its many stalls selling ‘alternative fashion’ – need an all-latex jumpsuit, a Gothic Lolita headpiece or huge Doc Marten boots? You’ll be able to find all these here, and much more besides. The restaurants, cafes, and food kiosks are all just as varied, offering up organic, free-range, vegan brownies, to deep-fried chip butties, to spicy Thai noodle dishes.
St James’s Hotel and Club – Splash out for a room at this elegant townhouse hotel - smack in the centre of town yet hidden in a quiet street, it almost feels like a secret that no one else knows about. The newly renovated rooms show a painstaking attention to detail, featuring silk wallpaper, beautiful Murano glass chandeliers, and highly polished fittings. It is a relief falling into the wonderfully soft bedding after a long day exploring the city. Room rates start from around £290.

London may have a reputation as a grey, rainy city, but the city’s vibrant, cosmopolitan culture more than makes up for the lack of sun. One of the largest and busiest cities in the world, you’ll never get bored here as there’s always a multitude of things to see and do. Should you need a break from the madness, simply retreat to one of the many scenic parks dotted around the city, and enjoy the peace. See
Regent’s Canal – Take a walk (or cycle) along this 200 year old canal for a chance to see a different side of London, away from the madding crowd and tourist buses. The canal cuts through a substantial east-west swathe of the city, and offers many lovely spots for picnicking. You’ll discover plenty of hidden places as the canal wends its way behind the London Zoo, through Camden Town, and on eastwards through Islington, before ending at the Limehouse Cut as it flows into the Thames. StayThe Sumner Hotel
– Accommodation in Central London can be prohibitively expensive, so this elegant little townhouse hotel just off Marble Arch comes as a delightful surprise. Rooms are tastefully decorated in calming, neutral colours, and are pleasantly quiet despite being only 5 minutes away from bustling Oxford Street. The Sumner also provides its guests with a fantastic complimentary buffet breakfast, although you’ll have to be an early riser to take advantage off it. But with so much to do in London, why would you want to sleep in anyway? Rates start at around £130 for a room.
HK Diner – For a quick, cheap but delicious meal, head to this busy restaurant on Wardour Street in Soho. Despite the abundance of competing Chinese restaurants in nearby Chinatown, this place is always crowded, and often sports a queue outside. Like its name suggests, it mostly serves typical Hong Kong style dishes. Start with an order of roast duck, its dark, crispy skin glistening with juices under the harsh fluorescent lights. The clay pot dishes are highly popular – a heap of vegetables, meat or seafood served on steaming rice in a big clay vessel.
