Things to do in London

London is one of my favourite cities in the world. There's always something to do, galleries and shows to see, food to eat... I might pretend I was visiting the city for the McQueen exhibition, but we all know I just go for the food! We did manage to squeeze in a few other things during our weekend though, when we had to kill time between meals...

Museums and Tours


Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty at The V&A


Working Process at The Tate Britain

Somerset House, the Natural History Museum and the palaces are also worth a look. We did a Jack the Ripper tour this time which was gory but fun!

Theatre


The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre

This show gets a big thumbs up from us! I can also recommend The Lion King, Wicked, Once and Thriller.

Landmarks


Cocktails in the Shard

Why pay £30 for a walk around the "View from the Shard" when you can pay £15 for a cocktail in one of the restaurant bars? Makes sense. I've also had afternoon tea at Paramount (now closed) and breakfast at Duck & Waffle (the UK's highest restaurant) and both were great experiences with great views.

Shopping


NikeTown, Oxford Circus


Harrods

I'd be here all week if I tried to list all the shops worth a visit in London. I like the big department stores and designer boutiques.

Markets


Portobello Road Market, Notting Hill

You can find markets selling absolutely everything you could ever think of. Camden market is an obvious one, Brick Lane is good and I hear Borough market is foodie heaven. Make a day of it at Portobello Road - wonder around the colourful Notting Hill streets, visit the local boutiques and stop for a munch at Granger & Co.

Parks & Gardens


Peter Pan at Kensingtan Palace Gardens

Hyde Park, Richmond Park, Primrose Hill, St James' Park... I really want to visit the Kensington roof gardens when we're back next month! Fingers crossed for good weather.
