I may be blonde but my top 5 places to go in London

Top five places to go in London

Savage garden LDN

(Formerly Sky lounge bar)

Double tree Hilton Tower Hill

The bar is on the 12th floor with unbelievable views over the Thames and to South bank and then back to The City, The Gherkin etc

The outside area has comfy seating, patio heaters, blankets and fantastic atmosphere day time or evening

Situated 2 mins from Tower Hill tube on Pepys street

This bar was a regular haunt of mine when firstly working in the City many years ago and then when staying at hotels for my business now

Great for romantic, business, celebrations and just on your own for a bit of you time

It’s busy, a great atmosphere, friendly staff, great food and amazing views

Tube – Tower Hill (central district line)

Embankment, London

I love a stroll along the Thames,

My favourite section is from Temple,

The legal district of central London

it is worth a little wander around this area

And immerse yourself within the Inner temple,

Middle temple, Kings bench walk and if weather permits a sit and watch the world go by in the middle temple gardens

Cross over to the Thames and now just amble along the embankment passing Temple pier, on your right on Temple place is a statue of Isambard Kingdom Brunel (the greatest mechanical and civil engineer)  

and coming to Waterloo bridge

The river curves here sending its way to Embankment

On a lovely spring day this is so lovely to do, with views of South bank and the Thames

Borough Market

I love love love a food market

And this is so much more than that

It’s a wholesale and retail market with the amazing

Store cupboard and fresh produce plus very tasty food to buy to eat there and then

And add in a visit to infamous Golden Hind ship

Open 6 days a week

Tube London Bridge

City of London

(at a weekend)

The square mile is an unusual place

On weekdays it’s streets are full with hundreds

Of thousands of City workers … Bankers/insurance

And at the weekend it’s dead

Apart from tourists and the 10,000 or so residents

It’s a great time and place to explore

Just a few suggestions

Barbican centre – vast arts complex

Museum of London

St Paul’s Cathedral

Leadenhall market

The road names conjure up a time of long ago …

Mincing lane  

Seething street

Fish street

Pudding lane !

Camden market

Sunday morning is the best time to go

It is a complete cosmopolitan eclectic mix of stalls

Food, clothes, crafts … live music 🎶

Rucksack and good footwear helps as do much to see and do plus your right along the canal and during the summer there is a water bus from Camden to Little Venice

Tube Camden Town
