Cromwell Road,, South Kensington, London SW7 5BD
I love this museum as it has such a wide range of things to see inside. I still find it really exciting going up the escalators, which go through the middle of a globe. The stuffed animals were really interesting and it was weird to see the size of some of the eggs compared to the birds. The entrance hall filled with dinosaur bones makes you feel as if you're in the middle of the film, Night in a Museum which is fun. They often have a student exhibit in this room too and is good to see their take on things.

I was a bit disappointed going to London's dungeons after experiencing such an amazing one in Edinburgh. The queues to get in were ridiculous taking about 2 hours, then we were told that the boat ride wasn't working. They did reduce the ticket price a little because of this though. However bad this seems so far I did love the actors, especially the woman with the cart full of the dead, who was hilarious and made me wanna join the team. If you haven't done this, it's worth doing once but I wouldn't go again unless it was somewhere different.

The Tate is always a fun-filled adventure into the mind's of the world's latest and greated artists. I particularly like the installations that there have been recently, especially the large slides they had in the entrance hall. There's always something entertaining to see or do. As a concept-based gallery you never quite know where the artist is coming from with some of the pieces, but that's the whole fun of it all.

I think this Big Chill bar, even though it's smaller than the main one is situated in a perfect place, it's right next to Cafe 1001 too. I go on Sunday evenings after a day wandering around Brick Lane and they play music you just can't help dancing too. The drinks are not cheap but for the entertainment they offer it's fine. Really good place to get you groove on as they say.

This is definitely a gallery that you need to keep up to date with, as always has some interesting pieces inside. Oh yeah don't forget there are two doors, make sure you go through both or you'll miss the second exhibition. They have 2 exhibitions on simultaneously, at present there's Seeing is Believing, which is an eerie collection of photographs and film following man's hunt for ghosts and on the right side with the cafe is one on Insomnia. Be careful though, it may creep you out a little at the moment.

I stumbled upon this cafe/bar by accident last night, but it was a nice find. You have everything you’d expect from a cafe with alcohol too. Cocktails are about £8 and the food is reasonable, offering things like nachos. It does get a little crowded and hot inside though, but you can always go outside and sit. They close about 11pm. It’s good for a quiet drink with a few people but not large groups as the tables are quite small.
Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7QN
The food hall is definitely a tourist attraction worth going to. The visual effects it creates are astounding, no wonder the produce is so damn expensive. If you haven't been, please give it a try and don't forget to look at the ceilings with their elaborate designs. Just look at the pictures I've posted here and you'll understand. A wonderful experience overall, if only I could afford to buy something.
134-135 Shoreditch High Street,, Shoreditch,, London E1 6JE
I visited Juno for a Street Wars event, where they white wash one of the walls and invite graffiti artists to battle one another. The walls are covered with street art by various different artists, so there's always something new to look at.
I love the retro arcade games they have as tables, where you can play games like pac man and space invaders. There is free wifi access here and a small outside section with tables for all you smokers. The atmosphere is relaxed in the day and vibrant at night. They hold other events too, not just graffiti and I believe they even had an eating contest here! Great fun, good company.
Dray Walk off Brick Lane, The Old Truman Brewery, London E1 6QL
I absolutely love this place, whatever kind of mood you're in, it'll sort you right out. You can sit outside, take in the smell of the bbq and warm up by the heaters. If you fancy lounging around, then it's filled with sofa's, tables and tea lights. The price of food and drink is really reasonable, I shared a tuna salad for £3 which you get a whole baghette with and was really satisfied. Nothing is over-priced, even the beer. The decor is nice, the music is varied and right at the top, at the back is a mini-club with dj's playing all day. It's a great place to chill out.
333 Old Street, London EC1V 9LE
I went to club 333 for a drum 'n bass and break beat session. I found the place really spacious but the queue to get in ridiculous. I would only advise going to a younger audience, because at 23 I felt old. I still enjoyed the music though, unfortunately they change dj’s a number of times through the night who play contrasting music, but if it’s not to your taste, you can always go upstairs. Drink prices were fair and is situated close to loads of other bars too.
