Itinerary:
I was here for a work trip so I don’t have a full detailed itinerary, but here are my recommendations:

Restaurants:

  • Berners Tavern: in the London Edition hotel in Soho, beautiful large restaurant, great breakfast menu
  • London Bridge Holiday Market: unsure if here only during holidays, but by the water under London Tower when walking towards Borough market has a ton of great food stands
  • Borough Market: a must do, large outdoor market with insane amount of options

Borough Market falafel & Granger and Co Curry

  • Farm Girl Café: small cute healthy café in Notting Hill
  • Granger & Co: restaurant in Notting Hill that is famous for their brunch (beware of insane multiple hour wait) but also has an incredible dinner service
  • Hoppers: in Soho, Malaysian food that has the Infatuation’s favorite curry (bone marrow) in London. Really good food that you can walk in and put name down (prob ~1hr or so wait)
  • Magpie: restaurant in Soho with a small shareable menu that was really delicious and has cute interior

    Fortnum & Mason High Tea
  • High Tea: this sounds silly, but it is highly recommended to do a high tea while in London. It is basically unlimited tea sandwiches, scones, tea, and mini desserts for a fixed price. I went to Fortnum & Mason but almost every hotel or nice restaurant has this option
  • The London Edition bar: the bar in my hotel in Soho that was insanely popular and packed every night (closes ~ 1:00AM for nonresidents)
  • Sketch: in Soho, really cool place with 5 different restaurants / bars within. Definitely “posh” and pretty sceney and expensive, but totally worth checking out. Great cocktail menu within the Parlour bar. Definitely go to the bathroom here – sounds weird, but it is probably the most famous bathroom in the world with these bright neon diff color lights and then each toilet is in an egg pod
  • Chiltren Firehouse: sceney bar and restaurant that is beautiful around Christmas time. Outdoor heated restaurant or very cozy bar with holiday décor and a fireplace. Definitely recommend going for at least a drink

Sightseeing:

  • London Tower
  • Tower Bridge
  • London Bridge City
  • Kensington Palace
  • Hyde Park – their Central Park, great for walking around or runs
  • Buckingham Palace
  • Winter Wonderland – if there around Christmas, unsure of exact dates, this is a Christmas themed carnival in Hyde Park with drinking tents. Can get very busy
  • Harrods – I did not make it there, but their most popular department store
  • Fortnum & Mason – in Soho and their second most department store that is food and home good focused. Levels dedicated to teas and jams, tea mugs and kettles, home goods, etc. They have a great high tea with gluten free or dairy free options

Other Recommendations: (places I didn’t go but was recommended)

  • Little Social
  • The Palomar
  • The Woleseley
  • Ichibun
  • Andrew Edmuns
  • Archor street bar
  • Cahoots bar
  • Gordon’s wine bar
