Food scene
Voted one of the top 50 bistros in the UK, The Laughing Gravy is one of my favourite local dining spots. I have taken my parents and many other guests there and celebrated a few birthdays with friends there. Recommend booking at least a few days in advance.

Groceries
An independent local grocer store with a fantastic butcher, baker, greengrocer and superb selection of cheese and wine. Not the cheapest place to shop but a real treat.

Cocktails and Music
Tucked away beneath Royal Festival Hall, this gem of a music venue has fabulous DJs throughout the week and equally tasty cocktails and food. The interiors are decked out in retro style with a surperb music sound system (even in the bathrooms) so you will enjoy the vibes wherever you sit. Highly recommend.

Excellent tours by the Yeoman who protect the tower. Opportunity to see the Crown Jewels. Dress warmly if heading there in winter - it’s a lot of standing around outdoors.

Excellent views from the top of this building and free entry, though you need to book in advance. Also has a few restaurants at the top - recommend Fenchurch Terrace. Better view than the Shard as it’s not so high up.

One of the worlds best collections including the Rosetta Stone. Free entry with paid exhibitions which vary in quality. Very crowded at main entrance. There is a smaller, faster entrance at the back of the museum.

Neighbourhoods
Famous area of London with great history that is now hidden beneath lots of stores. Worth wandering around though and lots of great restaurants on Henrietta St and in Neals Yard.

Once London’s red light district, it’s now more mainstream though there are still a few seedier places. Lots of clubs, bars and restaurants. Shaftesbury Avenue is also home to many West End Theatres.

交通アクセス
Download Citymapper app to navigate London
London has a lot of different transport options but not all are equal or easy. Citymapper app is incredibly easy to use and very useful in helping plan journeys including how long they take at certain times and cost, as fares vary depending on the time of day. It also works in a lot of other cities around the world.

Theatre tickets
If you’d like to see a show in London’s West End, there are plenty of websites that sell tickets. I recommend Today’s Tix app as you can get great discounted tickets. Note - Hamilton is showing at a theatre in Victoria, at the Victoria Palace Theatre, not the West End so leave extra time to get there.
