One of the best spots to take in the city’s iconic skyline is the south bank of the Thames. Swoon at St. Paul’s, marvel at the Tate Modern chimney, gasp at Shakespeare’s Globe and schedule your arrival at Borough Market in time for lunch.
Trendy, fun, colourful and multicultural, Brick Lane is one of the most vibrant parts of town. Chow down on a traditional East End ‘beigel’, watch the world go by whilst you savour a coffee, grab a vintage bargain, and buy exotic spices from the Bangladeshi supermarket.
The Making of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. Studio in Watford is a must for kids and adults alike. Enjoy an immersive and interactive studio tour and stock up on memorabilia at the shop. It’s a short train ride from central London.
London’s ‘Theatreland’ is brimming with musicals and plays featuring famous faces and voices. Catch classics such as the Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables or try one of the West End’s newer productions.
At Borough Market, you can’t move for mouthwatering food. Provenance, expertise and independent traders are the order of the day. Expect ethical and exotic meats, tasty cheeses from near and far, organic goods and plenty of eat-in options.
Everywhere you turn, there’s shopping temptation: from the high street heaven of Oxford Street and Regent Street, the luxury and designer kingdoms of Knightsbridge and Bond Street, to the off-the-beaten-track boutiques you’ll find almost everywhere.
