What to do & Where to go in London

Regent Street London

 

There is an endless amount to do and see in the capital and our apartments are a perfect "home base" for all areas of London as we are situated right in the middle of everything! Giving you a prime location for which to base yourself from.

 

Shopping

  • Our famous Regent Street has all the top fashion labels and is the most expensive area to shop but certainly the most prestigious. (15 min tube journey)
  • The new Westfield Shopping centre in Stratford which opened for the 2012 Olympics has some of the top fashion labels as well as restaurants/casino/cinema.  (15 min DLR journey)
  • The local treat of Brough Market is historically one of London's oldest markets established in the 13th century - it is now a diverse space with restaurants/pop-up cafes/local produce and craft. (10/15 min walk)
  • Hay's Galleria was built in the 1850's and was once where most of the container ships docked with all their worldly goods.  It is now a place of shopping and creative art. (10/15 min walk)
  • Spitalfields is a city gem featuring one-off fashion ideas and historic shops which share the same space with stall traders and pop-up restaurants. (10 min walk)
  • One New Change is a new mixed space of shopping and restaurants (including Jamie Oliver's).  It also has a fabulous terrace bar with terrific views of St. Pauls Cathedral. (15 min walk) 

Pubs and Bars

The City has some of the best pubs in England. Some are the oldest, some are the newest, some are even converted banks and there are many other weird and wonderful creations out there. It is hard to find any road in London, especially in the City, which doesn't have a pub on it!

Restaurants

Again, the City location gives you the chance to dine from the lowest to the highest budget, with some restaurants being awarded multiple Michelin stars. Our recommendation is to pop over the road for easy quick bites to eat (The Goodman Fields) but if you want to push the boat out then you could have any type of cusine you could want in London.

 

     OpenTable - Has deals and you can book online.

     Timeout - Has split the choice in London by price for you.

     Best Restaurants - Some of the best and most expensive restaurants in the City.
