Why not explore the nearby areas of Regent's Park, Camden, Euston, Fitzrovia, Marylebone, Bloomsbury, St John's Wood, Kentish Town, King's Cross and Soho

"Eccentric naturalist Francis Trevelyan Buckland, adopted a strange diet where he would eat any animal, all in the name of science. One of his splendid parties once boasted mice in batter, boiled elephant trunk and porpoise heads! He died at 54 after swimming in the Thames trying to feel what it would be like to be a fish!"

The handsome architecture around Regent's Park enhances the prestige of the area.
