Shopping in London is hard to beat – from areas full of flagship stores, to cobbled courtyards showcasing local designers.
Harrods Department Store
London caters for all shoppers including the famous department stores of Harrods and Fortnum & Mason, the traditional shops of the 18th Century in the area of St James and the Hipster-land boutique shops of Soho, with its funky independent shops.
Boutique shopping in Soho
So, put on some comfy shoes and prepare to discover some of the best shops and shopping areas in London.
The Royal Opera House
London’s theatre scene is one of the world’s best. See the worlds longest running musical, Les Miserable, or the worlds longest running play, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap which opened in 1952!
There are also the classic British comedies to choose from like The Play That Goes Wrong and of course the National Theatre for innovative new work. The choice is yours.
The world's longest running play
Indulge in an exquisite afteroon tea, A quintessentially English tradition dating back to 1840 and the Duchess of Bedford. Savour dainty little sandwiches, creamy desserts and scones with clotted cream and jam. All paired beautifully to accompany a tea of your choice.
The Ritz Hotel in London
Afternoon tea can be experienced in one of the many top hotels of London or for something more homely, a small independent tea shop offers a more intimate setting.
So get ready to sit back, relax and do what the British do.
Salty sailors, dodgy smugglers and famous regulars - every pub has a story to tell. London is packed with beautiful old pubs; the perfect spot for a cosy pint. But it’s not just beer on offer at these historic inns, there are countless stories worth digging for too.
The famous Ten Bells pub
Some of London’s pubs date back as far as the 1600s (the jury’s still out over London’s oldest pub) and they’ve gathered a few tales to tell along the way. Over hundreds of years they’ve seen all sorts, from pirates and smugglers at The Prospect of Whitby to Shakespeare at The George Inn. Look beyond the cosy fireplaces and wonky timber beams - there are some truly weird and wonderful backstories to London’s historic boozers.
Normally "Pub Grub" is on offer, which consists of traditional British food including Fish& Chips, Toad-in-the-Hole and Steak & Kidney Pudding and of course the Great British Sunday Roast!
If you are looking for something a little more special, then why not try a gastropub. Here you will find more refined menu still within the traditional pub setting
Lastly, and very importantly, the pub is where you can try the large selection of beers including traditional ales, bitters, stouts and porters.
Fish & Chips
So take a moment to think about the experience you would like. Write down all this information when contacting Gavin and leave the rest to him to organise, curate and personalise especially for you.
