Airbnb in Shoreditch. We stayed in a small apartment above some shops just around the corner to Brick Lane. We barely spent anytime in our apartment being there for a quick 4 days meant lots of time outside.
For a Boutique Hotel, my second option was Pilgrim Hotel.
The Ned if you are living large.
Bao, Soho – we stumbled upon it by mistake, walked straight in and ate the best Bao’s and fresh in house sodas I’ve ever laid my hands on. By the time we left, there was a huge line down the street. We later found out it’s a London hot spot.
Cub – Don’t be scared by the all vegetarian menu. The set menu is a must and is one of the best meals I have ever had. Each course is paired with a cocktail too.
The late night bagel shop on Brick Lane. It’s open 24/7 so perfect for after a night out.
Real Coffee at Bellboi.
Explore Brick Lane Markets before making your way into Hackney for a stroll down the Columbia Road Flower Markets ( Both only open on Sunday)
Hampstead Heath to escape from the city and enjoy some greenery. Load of Hollywood movies are filmed here (Notting Hill!).
Notting Hill Portobello Markets.
Go visit Lizzy at The Palace and walk through the city.
Ride a Bike around Hyde Park.
Visit the V&A – Usually some top notch exhibitions on.
The Natural History Museum is incredible. Dinosaurs, blue whales and millions of preserved animals (sounds so gross, but it’s super interesting)
I loved wandering Shoreditch. Redchurch street is full of cult favourites such as Aesop, APC, Browns Concept Store, Modern Society, Allpress Coffee and Le Labo.
Dover St Market, Mayfair.
