Cromwell Road,, South Kensington, London SW7 5BD
I have been several times in the Natural History Museum and I have to say that it is a great place that shows some really very interesting pieces and as it is free it can be a nice activity to do in this credit crunching dates. It has a lot of information related with the natural world. The main attractions are the big whale and also the dinosaurs because the reconstructions are very interesting (and funny for the kids). This museum is a good place to go in a rainy day and you can learn a lot there. Besides, in winter there is an ice rink outside the building so you can enjoy ice skating for one hour while seeing the beautiful views.
15 Hoxton Market, Shoreditch, London N1 6HG
The Real Greek & Mezedopolio is located in Hoxton square. I have been two or three times for dinner and the experience has been always very good.
I went once with my family that was visiting me and all of us loved the food because there are a lot of dishes to share and it is quite funny.
The food is nice and the meze (food to share) is served in a tray that has several dishes. The vegetarian one is very good with the typical Greek specialities: hummus, taramasalata, Greek beans, etc… I have ordered also the shared plate of dessert that is a good value for money and it is very very tasty!. The final bill is not expensive at all and I think that this restaurant serves food that is a good value for money. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
51 Camden Park Rd, Camden, London NW1 9BH
This pub placed near Camden Road became a good gastro pub not long ago, but that was just the beginning of the end. The place itself is fine, with a quite large beer garden and a nice ambient, and with a good selection of courses and wines.
The problem is the staff, that not only gives excessive priority to the people who wants to eat (what’s the matter if you are just thirsty?) but it’s also quite rude and disrespectful. The waiters are OK, but the people in charge treats you like you owe them something, despite being an usual and going with big groups of people.
It’s really a pity, but the nice place is not worth feeling that you are bothering them.
67-83 Seven Sisters Road, Holloway, London N7 6BU
This clothes shop is really a must see for cheap smart casual clothes, mainly for men. Women clothes are quite cheesy, but anyway you can find some decent items.
For guys the offer is much more interesting, with jeans, jackets, coats, t-shirts, shirts, etc. All of them have very reasonable prices, with good bargains even without discount.
This one is placed in Holloway, so you won’t find it full of tourist as other clothes shop place in the city centre. Actually is not usually very crowded and only the dressing rooms can have a little queue (that most of the time disappears after a few minutes).
34 Park Street, Southwark, London SE1 9EF
This is a typical british pub, with its typical booze, food and decoration. It’s placed next to the Thames, in the south shore.
It was supposed to be a place frequented by famous writers, and it’s easy to figure out why, with different rooms on the ground floor, a restaurant upstairs, and also two terraces: one on the first floor with fabulous views and other outside the building, being the closest you can get to the river. Unfortunately, there’s no beer garden, but you won’t miss it that much with all the riverside available for you.
The prices are not expensive, but sometimes it can get quite overcrowded, meaning that ordering can be quite a nightmare, specially if you are hungry. Anyway, food is quite tasteful, despite they don’t have anymore Sunday roast, one of their best. Instead, they have a wider selection of fish & chips, and you still can order your roast on the restaurant area.
1 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1AE
This Itsu restaurant is located in the City of London, near to Moorgate. It offers Japanese food to eat there or take away. The take away option is very popular at lunchtime and there are long queues of people waiting to pay. The food: There are good sushi sets (most of them with salmon) and also other dishes like vegetarian or meat based ones. The prices are average but it is easy to spend more than 5 pounds because the interesting sushi sets are around 7 pounds. They also serves soups: miso and noodles, and natural juices.
The menu doesn’t change very often and this can be a bit boring if you buy your lunch there once per week because you end ordering almost the same always.
24-36 Regent Street, St. James's, London SW1Y 4QF
The Lillywhites store is located in Piccadilly Circus in the very centre of London. The store occupies a whole building with several floors exclusively dedicated to sports. They sell sports clothes and equipment with very competitive prices. Well known brands are sold here with huge discounts in shoes and clothes reaching even the 70% of discount, this is specially remarkable on basketball trainers (including Nike, And1, Reebock, Fila). They also sell casual clothes like coats or trousers. The store gets sometimes very crowded so it is better to avoid going at the weekend when there are a lot of tourist hanging around.
3 Garrick Street, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9BF
Cyber candy is located near to the Covent Garden market. Despite being a small shop it has thousands of different sweets and candies. You can find sweet from other countries like Japan or Australia and also you are able to purchase from traditional items to special delicatessen. They have some weird things like worms covered in chocolate or candy and also famous TV drinks like Duff (from The Simpsoms) or Slurm (from Futurama). The prices are not very cheap but it worth the money because it would be difficult to find what they are selling in other place. It is also a good place for buying funny presents.
10 Paddington Street, Marylebone, London W1U 5QL
Ping Pong restaurant is specialized in dim sum. This branch is located near to Oxford Street and most of the seats are in the basement floor. The variety of dim sum in the menu is enough and there are some fixed menus that allow you to choose easily (although the quantity is small for the price). The price of the food is not very expensive but as every dish is quite small you have to spend some money to be full.
The flowering teas are really good and tasty. The restaurant is really busy sometimes and the tables are very near one to the others who is a bit annoying.
1 Canada Place, Canary Wharf, London E14 5EW
This Waitrose store is located in Canary Wharf. The supermarket is quite big and it sells a lot of home accessories but mainly it sells food.
The variety of the food is really nice, they have a lot of good know brands and also food made by themselves: hot meals ready to eat and a salad counter where you can prepare your own salad with a lot of different ingredients. This supermarket is so big that even has a sushi bar inside where you can have a bite if you are hungry. The quality is the usually Waitrose one so you can expect very good food with not the cheapest prices but you get what you are paying for.
