      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended Altitude 360
      Good club with great views but VIP pricing is dishonest and service patchy on NYE. Still the fireworks are amazing from that vantage point and you'll have a good time. Not sure about the rest of the ... read more

      Wouldn't do it again for nYE, but had good experiences here lately. The views are amazing.

      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended Oxo Tower Restaurant
      More expensive of the two restaurants. The other is the brasserie. Good but not great new British cuisine. But most people come for the view, which is awesome!

      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended Orrery
      Classic French restaurant that lives up to its rep. But wine is overpriced and service a bit up itself! Also they really need to do something about the aircon after the room fills up. Got unpleasantly ... read more

    • St Martins Lane Hotel45 St Martins Lane, London WC2N 4HX, England
      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended St Martins Lane Hotel
      Hip, modern and not outrageously priced, but rooms are smallish and cramped. Better for a tryst than a business trip. But if you're playing that game, stick with the Ritz or Savoy.

      Very modern, smart, elegant. Great for business travel, families and couples but not much storage space for extended stays. High end of four star range. It's a nice place to stay on either business or ... read more

      Great place to lunch or brunch near LSE on Aldwych. Not cheap, but the food is excellent. There's also a coffee counter that does good cappuccinos and somewhat less good pretzels. Good place for a ... read more

      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended Trafalgar Square
      Charming and slightly shameless monument to empire, this is for many of us the centre of London. If you've not started a romance amongst the pigeons, you are not a Londoner!

      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended Duck & Waffle
      Go early as it can get v crowded. Great views. Signature dish is tasty if a little contrived. But on a clear day, this is worth it for the views and the mimosas!

    • Tower of LondonTower Hill, London EC3N 4AB United Kingdom
      Pro 2014
      D'Maris Coffman recommended Tower of London
      Annoyingly expensive and over-touristed, but you can't not do it, especially with a family. Wonderful exhibits for all ages and pretty much emblematic of London. Plus the crown jewels are cool too.

      D'Maris Coffman recommended George Inn
      In many ways, this is more a museum than a pub. Literally so as it's run by English Heritage, but it is a great old inn off Borough High Street that dates back about 500 years. Makes a bit out of the ... read more

      Love this place. Amazing cheeses, butchers, fishmongers, chorizo, bakers, green grocers. If you live nearby, you don't need to shop for food anywhere else!

      glass pods that take you on an amazing 30 minute ride. An absolute must see during the day, and a stroll around the base at night is almost as amazing, offering views of big ben and the houses of parliament across the river.
