A Handpicked Selection of London’s Best Places

Posted on 06. Apr, 2012 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, expat UK, United Kingdom

During my first weeks in London, one of the things I found hard to deal with was the overwhelming choice I had to make every day.

Do I pick this tea place, or this one? This curryhouse, or this one? This garden pub, or the one across the city? While a wide array of choice is always a good thing, for outsiders, it can be pretty hard to make a decision, and be sure it was the right one.

To share my love for London and its effervescence, I decided to share a map of my London best places, from pubs to restaurants, hotels to gardens, shops to museums. Some of them are obvious, some are less. Either way, I hope this map can help you plan your trip to London and avoid daunting choosing process!



So, what do you think? Are these places in there you approve or disprove of? What are your London best places? Feel free to send in your suggestions and I’ll make sure to try them out next time I’m in the city!

    Two additions, both of the alcohol variety :) Gordon’s Wine Bar, just next to Embankment Statiot / Hungerford House, is an absolute must visit for anyone who enjoys a unique wine experience. And Freuds cocktail bar, where you have the symbol for Neal’s Yard, for anyone who enjoys some excellent cheap cocktails. Oh, Bermondesy Street as well as a couple of excellent pubs :D

    Love the list. Oh, I miss London so much. I have one friend from London, but he is a traveler and on the road through Asia for the last 4 years…. He should return home, so I can visit him in London. LOL!!!

    This reminds me of an episode of Friends and they are in London and Joey tries to figure out where he wants to go and decides to go “in the map” to make him choose. I love it! And I’m sure to try at least 5 of the places you’ve marked on your map.

    I totally dig this list, Marie; thanks for the time and effort.

    As an Arsenal fan, I’d be all over Highbury and Ashburton Grove, too. :)

    Great round up - can I ask is Camden Tandoori really that good? It is literally right by my house but I have never tried it. Would love to know more!

      I think it’s very good. The owners are super nice, and the prices pretty cheap. I always go back there whenever I’m in London. FYI: more of a take-away place than eat in.

    p.s. Alexa- how funny I just caught the episode where Joey goes ‘in the map’ last night. Classic!
