More on London....

 

You can't beat London for being a really vibrant, cosmopolitan place…best seen at night or during the day for shopping. sightseeing or strolling about!

Discover some hidden gems of London.

Take a stroll around Little Venice (not far from Paddington Station) and explore the lovely London waterways and waterside cafes, pubs and restaurants. Jump on a canal boat or take a walk along the riverside to Camden or Regents Park.
At night
dine in one of the fabulous restaurants set along the Thames. The Waterway and Pearl Llang are personal favourites but there are many to choose from.
Discover the Rolling Bridge just by Paddington Station. It looks like an ordinary bridge but at 12 noon every day rolls up into an octagonal shape. Great for architect enthusiasts.

Want to get to see Downing Street really close? Then check out the fake Downing Steet at 10 Adam Street in the Strand, it is pratically identical.
Check out Wilton Hall, apparently the oldest music hall in the world. Not far from the Tower of London. 
Our Tip? Check out Wilton Hall to see if a performance is on;there are some great performances on during the year

HOW TO GET THERE?
By tube: frequent tubes from Wimbledon direct to Paddington, Embankment (The Strand) and Tower Hill.

PLACES TO EAT:
Why not try a traditional Pie and Mash shop? It doesn't get much more traditional than pie, mash and mushy peas!  Jellied eels are a London must as well! Rules in Covent Garden is very well known. It is London's oldest restaurant, opened 200 years ago when it was famous for its porter, pies and oysters. The Windmill in Mayfair is a pub combined with pie club and two dedicated pie rooms.
Fancy some excellent dim sum? Head to Monument and dine at Fengshui. A converted night club. Below Pudding Lane where the Great Fire of London started. Other favourite places of ours are Opium Cocktail and Dim Sum Parlour in Chinatown and Four o Nine in Clapham. We would also recommend Menier Chocolate Factory over in Southwark (not a factory but a restaurant) - great for the Chocolate Platter (Menier Brownie, chocolate dipped strawberries, Valrhona chocolate sorbet and white chocolate and white chocolate creme caramel) Or try the steaks, really excellent.

If you fancy trying homemade Mexican check out La Bodega Negra in Soho, a really interesting entrance! Instructing guests to find a neon sign in Soho that reads "sex shop"and make their way into the dimly-lit basement below is not something we'd usually do, but you will have to trust us on this one! Don't be fooled by the inviting La Bodega Negra cafe' on Moor Street, you will have to work a bit harder than that! Venture round the corner to 9 Compton Street , into the basement and you will be greeted with a lovely Mexican Restaurant and a super trendy atmosphere. Just make sure you follow our instructions carefully.....

OUR TIP?:

We'd recommend heading up to Earls Court (direct from Wimbledon) to the Evans and Peel Detective Agency. Once you have made it down the wooden staircase, welcome to the prohibition and step back in time. You will need to convince your case is worthy of seeing the detective and then you will be led via a secret door in a bookshelf into the illicit back room. Beer is served in brown paper bags so as not to rouse supsicion and you will be rewarded by some delicious American food. The cocktails are to die for.

p.s. If you love sushi check out Sushi Des Artistes in Chelsea. Really unusual restaurant. Fusion French-Japanese.
