The SkyLounge

At the top of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel near Tower Bridge, this sophisticated bar has amazing views!

The Royal Exchange

A great place to pick up jewellery for a loved one while having lunch or afternoon tea.

Sushi Samba

Busy but buzzing and the cocktails are amazing. If you want to try sushi for the first time, no better place. Delicious!

The Folly

The Folly at Monument is like a Secret Garden! Perfect for weekend brunches, lazy lunches or catch ups after work - whatever the occasion, the Folly can do it!

Duck & Waffle

This restaurant in The Heron is a great way to start the day and there's not a bad view either... Breakfast is a must!!

St Paul's Cathedral

One of London's most famous landmarks with a beautiful, ornate interior and regular tours.

Aqua Shard

Not a bad way to start your day with breakfast at the Shard!

The Breakfast Club

Fantastic breakfast dishes served throughout the day, but be warned, it gets very busy at the weekend, so expect to queue.

Oblix

A special occasion place - beautifully prepared food and stunning views.

The View From the Shard

A really nice afternoon out if you are new to London, have visitors or just want something to do one day. Amazing uninterrupted views over London and on a clear day you can see for over 30 miles!

Golden Hinde II

Is there anything more English than Morris dancing in front of Sir Francis Drake's galleon!?

The Clink Prison Museum

Set on the site of one of England's oldest prisons, this museum is a great day out for all the family!

Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Whilst there have been many new entries into the London burger market, GBK remains a firm favourite. The Don burger is a thing of beauty!

Porky's

Very impressive meat dishes cooked in a proper American smoker. The ribs are fantastic!

Bishopsgate Kitchen

Great food in a glass-walled Benugo restaurant that has a varied menu made using local produce. It is just a short walk from London Liverpool Street and Spitalfields Market.
