London, United Kingdom
Stuff to do when on a city break in London
- Brick Lane Market , Brick Lane in general, be it market time or not, is a must-do when in eastern parts of the city. Second-hands, odd street kitchens and funky shops.
- Selfridges & Co , I guess you just have to do this.
- Liberty of London , Another one you just have to do if, even if not buying anything.
- Johnny Cupcakes , Coolest t-shirts. Might be Johnny's only store in Europe/UK.
- Old Spitalfields Market , A good and big market
- Carnaby Cash Machines , The go-to street for simple and easy urban shoppping (yes, I mean the whole Carnaby Street, not just the ATM).
- Fopp , Excellent music selection and good prices (it's a record store btw)
- Rough Trade East , Another Eastern landmark for music people
- Camellia's World Teas , Tea and biscuits at five o'clock
- Gaucho , Not cheap, but worth it if you like meat (who does not).
- Brick Lane Beigel Bake , Best. Beigels. In. The. World.
- Wembley Arena , A must-do because this is where Mr Frank Turner will be performing in April '12.
- Columbia Road Flower Market , A must-do on a Sunday morning. Beautiful.
- Portobello Road Market , Slightly too touristic, but still a top market to visit.
- Sofitel London St James , Do it if you can afford it. Excellent tea.
- Le Méridien Piccadilly , Most recent stay in the city. Excellent location, good rooms, very good ROI for a city hotel.
- The Hoxton , The only right choice in East London. They do a mean peanut butter milkshake.
