London has such a cultural variety that one post it’s not enough to explain all that the city can offer (museums, theaters, historical visits, etc). But in Lonbali we have selected the best plans we have discovered of this amazing city.
Greenwich. A good route you can do is to go by subway to Embankment and take a taxiboat to Greenwick. There you will be able to see London from the perspective of the bank of the River Thames. There are also many restaurants and bars where to eat and make a stop to rest.
Littlevenice. It is another area unknown to tourists visiting London. The 5km Canal Regent will take you to explore Little Venice, Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill before reaching Candem Lock. You can start the day at Pirmose Hill. We recommend you to climb up to the park so you can admire the amazing views! And finally you can eat at SummerHouse or Waterway and end up taking a walk along the canals.
Bricklane / Columbia Flower Market. One of the best plans for Sunday! You can start at Columbia Flower Market and walk to Shoreditch or Bricklane. Both areas will surprise you. There are vintage shops, antique dealers, artists, young designers, incredible galleries, etc. If you end up in Shoredich, we recommend you eating at Pizza East, and if you go to Bricklane, at Story Deli.
Hyde Park. The best way to enjoy London’s best park, and possibly one of the best in the world, is by bicycle. Can be rented for hours in multiple locations in the city. You can also take a walk, starting with Hyde Park, and walking towards Chelsea and visiting the Saatchi Gallery. To eat in this area we recommend: Coubert, in Sloane Square; Giovanni, where you can find the best Milanese in London; And Maroush, a Lebanese on Kings Road.
TateModern / Bourgh Market. If you are in London on a Saturday, we recommend to take the metro to St. Paul’s. From where you can cross the Thames by the Millenium Bridge and then arrive to the Tate Modern. It is one of the best museums and, like most of the museums in London, it’s free. You can end up biting something in the Borough Market.
NottingHill. If you end up wandering around Notting Hill, we recommend you to have a brunch at Raoul’s. Other sites that you can also enjoy are Electric; The Osteria Basilico, which is an incredible Italian; And Pizza East. By the way, right next to Pizza East there is an embroidery shop that you can’t miss either!
Shopping on Oxford Street. Enyone can resist to take a walk on Oxford street and end up shopping at Topshop, River Island or All Saint. If you are in the area, do not hesitate to make a stop at Cecconi’s, a Venetian-inspired restaurant with classic decor and very cool people at all hours.
