The Museum of the Order of St John Cloister Garden

A wonderful quiet garden for people in the know and ideal to sit in on a summer's day. Make sure you also take time to find the entrance to the original crypt, a wonderfully thematic space with tombs dating back hundreds of years.

The Barbican Exhibition Centre

A quirky but intimate spot for live plays and music events. Home of London Symphony Orchestra!

Amazing food! The service is fantastic and the steak and salmon are out of this world...

J & A Café

The best Irish fry up with real Irish soda bread and Ballymaloe relish!

Bourne and Hollingsworth

You may have to book really far in advance, but the brunch with bottomless cocktails is definitely worth the wait! Make sure you try the French toast with clotted cream, berries and honey...
