A LITTLE MORE ABOUT LONDON

You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No Sir, when a man is tired of London he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford. Samuel Johnson 1709-1784

A man who can dominate a London dinner table can dominate the world. Oscar Wilde 1854-1900

London, that great capital of the world, that magnet and melting pot of cultures, art, theatre and food all wrapped within a historical fabric that has withstood, fires and revolution, wars and intrigue. Look up or look around, every corner reveals yet another phase of its past that has evolved over centuries without any planning or structure. Churches from the 7th century, tiny alleys and yards from the 17th (there were no “roads” in the City of London only Streets, Lanes and Ways) and imposing squares from the 18th. There are palaces and houses, over 40 theatres alone in the centre, over 170 museums, 800 art galleries, and where else will you find a hat maker in the same shop since 1676. The most difficult question facing you is not whether to go, but how much time to spend there. To list its attractions would trivialise its appeal for there is more than enough to satisfy even the most demanding of visitor.

For hedonists, London is a magnet with a surfeit of restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs, sports arenas, theatres and music venues. While the architecture, history and culture are immediately palpable for any visitor to London, it takes a good guide to reveal some of London’s lesser known sites and to help understand what really makes the city tick. Take a stroll around Little Venice where Londoners hang out by the canal and frequent the waterside cafes and bars. Take a walk around London’s oldest garden, the Chelsea Psychic Garden, established in 1673 and containing around 5,000 edible, medicinal and historic plants. Visit one of London’s oldest book shops like Daunt Books in Marylebone or Hatchards in Piccadilly. We know the quirky and different hang-outs to make your visit to London a memorable one.
