London in Brief
An endless metropolis to explore and drinking sessions that turn into weekend-long benders. To all the restless souls out there: London is calling.
London In a Nutshell
- Imposing Gothic architecture flanked by towering buildings of the future.
- A tapestry of British icons: from Big Ben to the Spice Girls and generations of Kings and Queens.
- Cutting-edge nightlife, underground raves and over 3,500 pubs.
The UK capital may appear suited and shiny, but underneath there’s a rugged lust for life to match the energy of any stag do. East London’s punk sensibility is palpable in the repurposed old pubs and dive bars of Hackney and Dalston, while South of the river, Brixton has crowds clamouring over home-grown live music. Trendy Shoreditch breathes new life into narrow Brick Lane, while Soho guarantees raucous, drag queen-filled festivities.
By day, the Big Smoke maintains its intoxicating energy. Londoners speed-walk onto the Tube as Big Ben signals it’s time for work, while big red buses ferry tourists to the gilded gates of Buckingham Palace. Grab some pie and mash or a Crosstown doughnut and stroll along the South Bank, where grandiose government buildings flank the faithful River Thames. Climb atop the Shard’s rooftop garden for stunning panoramas, or venture to the top of Hampstead Heath’s Parliament Hill for views of London’s iconic skyline: St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster and The London Eye all in focus. Then, knock a pint in a local pub, where the city’s hard-working professionals loosen their ties for a chinwag.
Embrace London and you’ll be rewarded in kind: it’s one of the most visited cities in the world for a reason.
Getting Around London
As if taken straight out of a Dickens’ novel, London’s neighbourhoods are full of distinct character and fiercely proud of their histories.
Once a den of disrepute, Soho is today a shining example of London’s free-thinking attitudes towards sex and self-expression, with a smattering of strip clubs and LGBTQ bars next to popular West End shows. Come here to wander from bar to bar for predrinks, making sure you stop at Bar Soho, 1940s-themed London Underground bar Cahoots and Mexican hangout La Bodega Negra - just don’t be fooled by the neon sex shop entrance.
Though it’s past its glory days, you can still feel the creative energy brimming from Shoreditch, London’s famous hipster haven. Young professionals gather for after-work drinks at Boxpark (a bar collective built on shipping containers,) or walk through a literal fridge to visit the Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town. Above ground, nothing beats the fairy-lit rooftop terrace of Boundary.
Step right up, step right up to one of South London’s best-kept secrets. Home to everyone from Del Boy to grime heroes, Peckham holds a fond place in the London imagination as a hub of hustle. Gentrification has reared its head in recent years, but it still retains a lot of soul: from the popping Peckham Springs bar (between train tracks) and the colour explosion of Rye Lane.
Arts and culture abound in uber-cool Hackney, where graffitied walls give way to some of London’s most creative local businesses. Mare Street is a prime place to eat through the borough’s multicultural past, from Vietnamese plates at Green Papaya to finger-licking jerk chicken at Caribbean Kitchen. For drinks, follow the crowds to London Fields and Kingsland Road.
Waving its hands at the end of the Victoria line, Brixton permeates a sense of community lost in modern London, with local market stalls and beloved institutions fringing its busy Tube station. The area’s strong West Indian heritage lives through the sizzling cooking pans you’ll salivate over at Brixton Village, while the traditional shops of Reliance Arcade have served locals for almost a century. There are also fantastic options for a night out, including foot-stomping live music at Hootananny’s and wild nights at Pop Brixton.
