London presents more
live
comedy
than any other
city in the world. From
hosting new talent in the
backrooms of pubs to the
likes of Ricky Gervais, Chris
Rock and Steve Coogan
performing in major arenas.
What to eat:
Borough Market
For a taste of everything local, organic and internationally
imported, head to Borough Market near London Bridge on a
weekend. This famous collection of stalls serves up everything
from Ostrich egg omelettes and British bangers with mash, to
purifying wheatgrass shots blended with Kale and cups of the
best coffee in the city.
The first traffic light on the planet was placed just
outside of the House of Commons in London, back in
1868. It, bizarrely, exploded in 1869 and injured the
unlucky policeman in charge of it.
THINGS TO DO IN LONDON:
London has the richest and most eclectic mix of art, theatre, street markets,
international cuisine, sports, parks, museums and people, anywhere in the
world.
The top of your to do list should be a walking, bus or bike tour through the city streets of zone one. It’s
the best way to get your bearings in a city the size of London and a great way to figure out how to get
to
Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the South
Bank.
Sandemans Tours, Fat Tire Bike Tours and The Original London Sightseeing City Bus Tour, all
come highly recommended.
Any London to To Do list should include a
walk along the bookstalls, cinemas and theatres of the
South Bank
, an afternoon in the museums of
Knightsbridge and South Kensington
, live music
up in
Camden,
a hike up the hill to the
Greenwich Observatory
where time is set, cupcakes at the
Hummingbird Café and a healthy dose of retail therapy on
Oxford Street.
