Where do West End locals go?

Gosh! Comics

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

Archer Street

I love this cocktail bar! It has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to take a date.

The Royal Academy of Arts

A world-renowned gallery with leading exhibitions such as this one from the defiant Ai Weiwei!

Dishoom

If you really want to taste Indian food, then this is the place to go. They offer chai (tea) in a little cup when you're in the queue and the atmosphere at this place is amazing - it feels just like Bombay!

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...

MASH

This American steak house serves delicious high-quality food with a Danish twist. The Art Deco interiors are really cool too!

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!

Savile Row

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

The Crobar

Happy hour 4-9pm every day, which makes this place super cheap and cheerful for central London!

Jamie's Italian

Just off Piccadilly Circus, this Jamie's Italian is set within a converted pub and has a terrace too that is lovely on a summer's evening. The fresh pastas and cocktails are very tasty!

Kastner and Ovens

The best lunch stop in Covent Garden bar none. They have a daily changing menu of healthy salads and dishes to take away.

Kingly Court

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

Wild & Wood

The best coffee shop in London!

Brasserie Blanc

One of world renowned chef Raymond Blanc's chain restaurants with delightful views over Covent Garden. Ideal for after work drinks or reasonably priced, freshly prepared meals.
