History and Culture Await with Holiday Apartments in London's Heart
The famous English literary master Samuel Johnson once said "when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." You'll find a myriad of subcultures represented in the United Kingdom's storied capital city. Whether you have a penchant for regal seats of power or cabinets of curiosities, ritzy bars or world-class shopping, London is a destination that affords visitors endless attractions and its various boroughs are as many-faceted as one of the diamonds in the Queen's crown. Holiday apartments in the city are just as varied, with a plethora of chic, modern flats to quaint houses to choose from.
Dining in London: From Glitz to Tradition
A number of celebrity chefs have launched successful ventures in West London, including Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay, whose Maze restaurant serves reasonably-priced yet superlative fare. Also in Mayfair, right around the corner you'll find Scott's, a popular seafood restaurant, as well as a number of other tony dining options. The Ritz Hotel is renowned for brunches, and sits next to Fortnum and Mason's, a sumptuous supermarket like no other.
For a taste of traditional English fish and chips, you'll want to visit one of the city's gastro pubs. Stroll on Hampstead Heath and enjoy views across the entire city before sitting down at the 16 century inn, The Spaniards. Or try Aldgate's Hoop and Grapes, which survived the Great Fire of London. Don't miss the fabulous weekend food markets, like Borough Market and Camden Market, where Goths congregate amongst eclectic wares. For a great steak, check out the streets around London's historic Smithfield Market.
A World of Culture
Head to Shakespeare's Globe, a replica of an Elizabethan roundhouse theatre right on the river, to catch a play from the city's most famous playwright. Stroll along to the Royal Festival Hall for a concert, or stop in at the vast and imposing Tate Modern, much of which is free to visit. The museum hosts engaging exhibitions from art world giants, befitting its gargantuan interior.
London's West End buzzes nightly with world class theatrical entertainments, while the central Soho district is known for its comedy shows. During the daytime, you can enjoy the wealth of free museums and art galleries that London has to offer. They range from the National Gallery in the city's famous Trafalgar Square, to the Victoria and Albert Museum and Natural History Museum, replete with Victorian acquisitions. On the way, you'll find any number of smaller galleries and museums. One of the most intriguing is Sir John Soane's Museum, the eccentric homestead of a collector of Greco-Roman artifacts.
Family Fun in London
London offers much to do for families. The seat of a monarchy with a storied history, its museums are crammed full of riches reminiscent of the country's morally dubious yet fascinating empire. Learn about the murder of two princes at the Tower of London, wave to the Beefeaters outside Buckingham Palace, or take a boat ride on the mighty Thames river and spot MI6, of James Bond fame, on the riverfront.
Whether it's enjoying a meal accompanied by hourly rain showers in Piccadilly's Rainforest restaurant, or wandering through a recreated woods in the arboretums of London's Kew Gardens, the sheer diversity of entertainment in this capital city thrills young and old. Visit the original Madam Tussauds, or the set of Harry Potter. From watching a 4D movie at the Science Museum's IMAX cinema to catching the clown shows in bustling Covent Garden, children will be entranced by London's many marvels.
Nightlife in London
Pick your district, and there's a scene to see. London is so large that its centre is often a convenient place to congregate. Soho has been the city's heart of LGBTQ nightlife for over a century, but these days you will find it highly gentrified. Today, it is more a mecca for high-end dining, but for potential celebrity spotting, try knocking on the unmarked door at 13a Gerrard Street, where you'll find the Experimental Cocktail Club.
Go east for Shoreditch High Street, which is lined with bars. As ever, the word on the street is that the area was supposedly cooler five years ago. This may be true: Stoke Newington, Hackney, and Dalston are even more happening. Look out for Cafe Otto in Dalston, which is where John Lennon's wife Yoko Ono plays when she's in town. Brixton's upbeat music scene, meanwhile, is enough to pull stubborn North Londoners across the water. London's latest mega club, Printworks, brings party-goers to the already hipster area around Wapping and Limehouse.
