Tachbrook Street Market

A great street food market open 2 hours every lunchtime.

Rubens Hotel

An institution over 100 years old, this stunning hotel is beautiful inside - you really are stepping back into a grander era!

Inn the Park

A fantastic place to watch the world go by, with an outdoor terrace to enjoy sunny days and stunning views of Whitehall and Buckingham Palace.

Parliament Tour

Informative guided and audio tours of the beautiful and ornate parliament building. It's great to see the place in real life, rather than just on the tele!

The Grenadier

A local pub tucked away and open since 1818. It gets incredibly busy with people coming after work and is one of the most haunted pubs in London! They serve a fantastic beef Wellington too!

Royal Artillery Memorial

This World War I monument is very impressive, even on a cloudy day.

Cecconi's

The Orange

Who wouldn't enjoy a whole roast cow?! The Sunday roast at The Orange is certainly generously sized...

Peace and quiet, where one goes to ponder and work out all at once!

Oddbins

As well as selling a wide range of beer, wine and spirits, the Oddbins in Pimlico does free tasting sessions too!

Super favourite amongst locals and professionals in the area. Great selection of salads, sandwiches, pastas, wines, meat and cheese, and take away lunch. Usually the queue starts on the street outside of the shop.

Pizza Pilgrims

As well as an intimate, homely atmosphere, the pizzas are delicious and very very affordable, starting at only £5!

Cave

Great for hidden treasures and shabby chic furniture.
