Take a Trip to the Breakfast Club
Words cannot describe how much I love this place. Unfortunately every other young person in London seems to love it too and there’s usually a considerable queue outside the Soho restaurant. They have a few others dotted about London though and if you don’t want to queue for up to an hour then I’d recommend the Battersea or Shoreditch restaurants.
As well as being fabulously decorated with 80’s posters and glowing testimonials, it is probably the best place I’ve been for brunch in London. I would recommend the breakfast burrito.
Visit the Garden Bar at the Southbank Centre
The Southbank centre may look a little bland at times but they do some brilliantly creative things with the space there. It was already one of my favourite places to visit in summer and I recently discovered this gem. It gets very busy when the weather’s nice but it’s worth the queuing for the opportunity to sit in such a picturesque spot. As well as being surrounded by a little piece of nature in the sunshine there are also good views of the river and the London skyline.
Visit 221b Baker Street
This is a must for any Sherlock Holmes fan. One of the great things about living in London is the vast array of films and books which use it as inspiration. This is just one example of where you can feel as if you are actually stepping into the pages of a brilliant creative work (maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration). You don’t have to pay to go in to meet this smiling chappy and get your photo taken wearing the iconic deerstalker and sporting a pipe.
One thing to watch out for though is the ridiculous number of tourists which gather around here. I’d recommend going off-peak times, I’d also recommend paying a visit to the nearby Wetherspoons afterwards.
