Where do Piccadilly Circus locals go?

St James's Square

Beautifully maintained, this garden square is a real retreat from the hustle and bustle of central London - it's amazing how quiet it is!

Cecconi's

Without a shadow of a doubt, the best breakfast in London. A celeb hangout, you may be sat alongside Bernie and Tamara Ecclestone, Bill Nighy and Kylie Minogue.

Flat Iron

Hands down the tastiest 'cheap' steak in London. There's only one steak on the menu and it's priced at an amazing £10...the sides are great too and also very good value for money.

Bone Daddies

A small but tasty menu of Japanese ramen dishes.

Gosh! Comics

A wealth of graphic novels from a wide variety of genres.

Ping Pong

The best dim sum in London and superb strawberry puree lemonade! The set menu is fantastic too and a real bargain...

Choccywoccydoodah

Just off Carnaby Street, this shop is like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for grown up's! All of the chocolates are hand made by the team and don't just look good, they taste amazing too...

Bó Drake

Bó Drake has a relaxed, Soho vibe serving a fantastic selection of small plates and sharing dishes of modern Asian cuisine. The impressive cocktails alone are a reason to go. Look out for their seasonally themed drinks available during Bó Drake Late every Friday and Saturday night too!

Savile Row

The best tailors in Europe. Bespoke or off the rail, there's something for everyone's budget.

TKTS

One of the best kept secrets in London apparently. The TKTS booth sits in the middle of Leicester Square and is the official ticket reseller for all of London's West End shows. Left over seats are passed to TKTS a few days before each show and sold at a phenomenal discount - sometimes more than half price!

The Gallery, Sketch

A stylish spot for afternoon tea, but be sure to check out the toilets that are shaped like eggs!

Antidote

This lovely restaurant and wine bar is hidden away just off Regent Street. You'll find a cosy wine bar downstairs complete with a terrace and a fantastic restaurant upstairs, which serves impressive food.

The Parlour, Sketch

Posh breakfast and striking, artist-designed dining rooms - perfect for a special occasion...

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Based on Forest Gump, this lovely shrimp restaurant from the USA has opened its first restaurant in London! Amazing food and the restaurant is decked out just like you're on the film - it has its own gift shop too!

Kingly Court

A variety of restaurants for every occasion and budget, which are centred round a covered courtyard.

"The first Scotch egg was not Scotch at all! It was invented in London at Fortnum and Mason and was inspired by North Indian cuisine consisting of hard-boiled egg surrounded by a spicy shell of ground lamb."
