      It really is quite majestic. Also, take the open-top bus tour (from any of the tour stands). You can get on and off again on the same ticket. That way if you get to a location you want to check out ... read more
      more, you just hop off, wander a bit, and catch on the next tour bus. Also, if you take the taxi, don't be shy to ask your driver for recommendations. They are full of great advice!

      The Bree Louise is a great example of how you have to know London for London to be cool. Tucked behind Euston Station, if you didn't know it was there, you'd end up at a sucky chain pub on one of the ... read more
      main roads. If you know it's there, you can go and sample loads of unique ales and ciders, get a Sunday roast, and get stuck in to a great conversation. Or hit on by Irish guys if you go there on St. Patrick's Day...so I hear.

      Great vintage pub with grizzly name near the Tower of London. Great place to watch Rugby and my bf at the time assured me the beers were 'pukka.' Nice place to go after a hot summer ay at the Tower. ... read more
      Not too touristed.

      Can't beat the name, & especially convenient if you go to the Tower of London.

      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

      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!

      This is overpriced and over touristed, but great with kids or to get your bearings in London. On a clear day, this is worth it for the views alone but otherwise don't bother.

      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!

      Westminster Abbey is another must for history buffs. I almost didn't go till a friend talked me into it..but was blown away by its history. Though I usually don't like going on tours....you will do ... read more
      yourself a dis-service not going on one. The depth and breath of the tour guides knowledge was very impressive.

      Add this to the list of places that as a history buff you must visit and go on a tour. The tours here are given by Beefeaters Guardsmen and they know their history ironclad rock solid. This place is ... read more
      known as the "Bloody" tower and rightly so...pay attention while the Beefeaters share the true stories from this towers dark past. Of note, it was built by William the Conquerer.

      I liked going into pubs and just asking for their special bitters. Usually they had more than one and I could ask for a taste flight. In this way you could create your own tour.

      This is one of the most amazing pubs in London. Situated on the north end of Hampstead Heath - this pub was built in 1585 (originally as a toll booth). You can feel the age when you are inside - the ... read more
      ceilings are low and slanted. It also has a great garden out back when you get a sunny day - Keats is rumored to have written "ode to a nightengale" here.

      The Cheshire Cheese is one of the oldest pubs in London - built back in the 1600s and feels like it is that old. Charles Dickens used to hang out here. It has a very cool vibe and is a great way to ... read more
      soak in a little taste of historic London. Located in the Fleet Street area of town.
