The crown jewels, Buckingham Palace, Camden Market…in London, history collides with art, fashion, food, and good British ale. A perfect day is different for everyone: culture aficionados shouldn't miss the Tate Modern and the Royal Opera House. If you love fashion, Oxford Street has shopping galore. For foodies, cream tea at Harrod’s or crispy fish from a proper chippy offers classic London flavor. Music and book buffs will love seeing Abbey Road and the Sherlock Holmes Museum (at 221B Baker Street, of course).

The home of British art from 1500 to the present day. Tate Britain holds the largest collection of British art in the world. Walk through the history of British art from 1500 to the present day. See masterpieces by J.M.W. Turner, John Constable, John Everett Millais, as well as outstanding modern and contemporary art from Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney and Bridget Riley – to name a few. Tate Britain showcases cutting edge British art through its temporary exhibitions and annual art commission.
Wonderful art gallery, so much to see. Particular favourites are Stanley Spencer’s Resurrection at Cookham and Pre-Raphaelite/Victorians. Dates in the floor in each room mean you can walk through the timeline of art history and there’s usually a modern art exhibition going on there too. A real treat to visit here!

Admission to the Cathedral is free but donations are gratefully received Tower Lift - £6 adult; £3 concession; £14 family ticket (2 adult and 2 children) If you enter the Cathedral at a quiet moment in the day, don’t imagine that it is always like this. Westminster Cathedral must be one of the busiest churches in the United Kingdom. Located in the heart of London, it is the mother-church of England & Wales. People are drawn to this great edifice from all over London, all over the country and the world. If you are trying to imagine ‘what goes on’ here, consider that there are seven masses each day, many great services of worship on special occasions and unique gatherings of every description which fill the Cathedral to the doors. Westminster Cathedral Choir, justly renowned for consistent excellence, sings at the Solemn Mass each evening - with few exceptions. Even when no public ceremony is taking place, the private prayer of individual believers is a work of faith, continuously in progress. The Cathedral is a sacred space at the heart of a great city, dedicated to the worship of God.
I made three different visits to Westminster Cathedral - one, to tour in a leisurely fashion, a second to re-visit some of the areas of the cathedral where I wanted to have a more immersive experience, and a third time, for Sunday evening Mass. Each time, I was in awe of the structure itself, the intricate architecture, and the more than impressive crucifix that hangs above the entrance to the main altar. The Cathedral is of course steeped in history, and is hone to the bodies of notable Catholic martyrs including St. John Southworth. The sung Mass was an incredible experience with a wonderfully talented young female soloist, a relevant and interesting homily with a touch of humor and a traditional service that enables a deeply spiritual experience. Advice: Arrive early, the main aisles of the Cathedral were full by the time the Mass started.

A destination in itself, The Library bar attracts guests in residence and locals alike. Retaining an intimate, club-like atmosphere with a welcoming ambience, the distinguished surroundings provide the perfect opportunity to soak up the bar's "Lanesborough Paradis" atmosphere, where time slows to a leisurely pace during the day yet comes alive in the evening as the nightly music entertainment unfolds. A truly unique experience amongst London's vibrant bar scene, The Library Bar is home to Cognacs dating back to the 1770s, as well as spectacularly prepared cocktails by a team of award-winning bartenders.
Just completed 5 night stay at the glorious Lanesborough hotel (best 5 star hotel), and visited the magnificent and opulent Library bar on 3 different evenings. The décor is sumptuous and the service out of this world. A special thank you to Michael for taking such great care of us each evening, making our visits truly extra special!!! They have piano player in evenings starting at 6:30pm which is very nice. If you want a special spot, call ahead and they will try to accommodate. Truly the best bar we've visited in all our international travels, others in London don't even compare!!

My husband was looking for a pub and I wanted a 'nice meal', The Grenadier made us both happy!! The place is adorable and the fish/chips were the best we had in London, the Beef Wellington was amazing and the toffee pudding was truly delicious!

The Royal Court Theatre is one of the best in the World. A Kind of People (currently playing) is probably the best play of the year. It is about race and our relationships with each other and how our upbringing affects us in ways we don't always comprehend. It is Funny and Tragically funny and Tragic . 95 minutes with no intermission. It covers what many others have tried to cover but not with much success . This play is nearly perfect. The Acting is first rate ! and the set design is fantastic. Go See This Play!

Contemporary art from unknown designers and artists from all over the world
We have been studying Tutankhamun for ages, and have been to Cairo to see the death mask. I was blown away by just how many quality items are on display at the Saatchi Gallery, and so well displayed. Do not expect the most valuable items to be here (death mask, solid gold coffin ect) they are far too valuable to leave Egypt; that said we were really glad we ventured all the way to London for the exhibits. Get there as early as you can to avoid the worst of the crowds, just as it opens is best. However the prices in the shop are a joke.

Wow what a show. Cannot recommend it enough. Unbelievably talented cast was absolutely blown away by the two leads. Ticket prices were good too £50 for two seats in the dress easy to collect from box office. If you are in London go see this show it’s cheaper than a night out in the capital.
