Local interests

Covent Garden

Big-name brands and bijou boutiques sit side-by-side in Covent Garden. It’s one of the city’s oldest and best-known shopping districts, and one of the only places you can browse for a bargain while being entertained by the mimes and magicians who perform every day around the central square. From Agnés B to Zara, the list of shops is vast, catering from every taste and budget. Or go for the independent option and visit The Apple and Jubilee Markets for stalls selling the best of British hand-made crafts.

Open 7 days

15 mins

King's Road

From Charles II to James Bond to Led Zepplin, the King’s Road comes with a long history of big-name owners and residents. But it’s fashion that really made its name, as 60s powerhouses including Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood chose it as their base. And it’s still a shopping haven today, with a mix of big name stores and independent boutiques to peruse at your leisure while taking in the history of one of London’s most famous addresses.

40 mins walk

Southbank Centre Book Market

Evict your e-reader and kick out your Kindle, under Waterloo Bridge paper is still king. For those who like their text tangible or simply want to indulge a in a bit of print nostalgia, the daily book market nestled under the bridge arch in the heart of Southbank is the place to visit. The market is as regular as the Thames tides, with it’s stalls of second-hand and antique books on display whatever the weather. With hundreds of books on offer, just leave yourself plenty of time to browse.

Daily 9am – 7pm

2 mins walking

Gabriel's Wharf

There aren’t many places you can buy wooden light bulbs or salt and pepper robots, but Suck UK at Gabriel’s Wharf has both. In fact the 40-or-so independent shops here all sell original designs guaranteed to be unique, something not to be sniffed in a world of big brand domination. And not bad for what was, until 1988, a row of old garages. It’s become one of Southbank’s artiest enclaves, and as well as browsing the shops you can also get a haircut, a bunch of flowers or watch the world go by at one of the many cafes and restaurants perched on the riverside.

Tues – Sun 11am – 6pm

Carnaby Street

Thanks to the thousands of London hipsters who flocked to its clothes shops, including bands such as The Who and The Rolling Stones, Carnaby Street has become known world-wide as a symbol of London in the swinging sixties. It was home to Austin Powers in the eponymous movies, and was the place The Simpsons’ Bart and Lisa came for a mod makeover when they visited the capital. But in reality you don’t have to go retro to shop here. Today the area is home to a wealth of well-known and independent brands stocking the latest fashions. But anyone so inclined can still hunt-out a pair of flares.

Mon – Sat 10am – 7pm, Sun 12pm – 6pm

Local Foods

Juice Bars

The best juice bars keep it simple  - top quality fruit and a good blender. Check out the takeaway farm-grown organic offerings from Chegworth Valley (12 mins walk) who will happily prove wrong anyone who thinks apple juice is just apple juice – they have six different types. Then there’s Total Organics (12 mins walk) which offers a delicious selection of blended juices or their famous wheatgrass shot - what it lacks in taste it makes up for in vitamins: just one shot contains the same number as a week’s worth of fruit and vegetables. Or sit down at Crussh (7 mins walk), which stocks fresh juices, smoothies and health boosters as well as a range of calorie-light snacks. Wheatgrass excepted, being healthy never tasted so good.

All within 12 mins walk

Borough Market

To sample everything on offer at Borough market would require some serious dedication. From Essex oysters to Caribbean conserves, the UK’s most famous and historic food market brings together the best of British and international ingredients at 70 stalls and stands packed with fresh produce. There’s an array of seafood, organic meats, rare cheeses, fresh breads and sweet treats such as liquorice chocolate brownies on offer. Take inspiration from the live cooking action at the weekly Demonstration Kitchen, browse the free recipes on the Borough Market website, grab a bite on the go or just take in the sights and smells before going for the easy option – a meal cooked for you at one of the many award-winning cafes and restaurants dotted around the 700 hundred-year-old site.

Mon – Wed: open for lunch. Thurs, Fri, Sat: full market days

Riverside Terrace Cafe, Southbank Centre

For the untrained, eating at Southbank can mean queues, high-prices and busy tables. But among this hustle and bustle sits the Riverside Terrace Café, an eatery that boasts great views, lots of space and fair prices. Try their home-made stews or daily seasonal soups, accompanied by a rustic hunk of fresh bread and butter, or go for chocolate and hazelnut brownie from their pastry counter and take advantage of the free wi-fi.  While taking in the view of the Thames and the city beyond, don’t miss out on a smug glance at all the people who haven’t found this gem yet.

Open 7 days, 10am – 10.30pm

8 mins

OXO Tower

In past lives it’s been a power station and a meat store, but these days the OXO Tower is considerably more highbrow. Sitting above the iconic red letters with a floor-to-ceiling view out over the capital comes at a predictably high price, but the fine dining offered by the restaurant, which includes vegetarian, vegan and halal options, is great for a special occasion. And it is possible to get the experience without parting with too many pounds: enjoy the view over an expertly mixed cocktail at the bar (alcohol optional), or go for the daily Express Lunch menu to get a main meal and a drink at the brasserie for £16.

Open 7 days

4 mins walk

Feng Sushi

If a flight to Japan’s too much for the budget head to Feng Sushi at Southbank or Borough Market for the next best thing. Open fires and fish tanks make for an oasis of calm in the capital accompanied by responsibly sourced sushi of the freshest kind. Or for those not wishing to venture out, bring a taste of Japan to you with Feng Sushi’s takeaway option. The only thing un-Japanese is the price: students get a 15 per cent discount.

Lunchtime until late

8 mins

After Dark


There aren’t many cinemas established by a royal charter, but the British Film Institute, or BFI as it’s known to its friends, isn’t regal or stuffy. In fact it’s at the forefront of film. From its enviable location on the South Bank, it’s one of the best places in London to experience the best in moving image, from black and white classics to modern arthouse gems. It also has a well-stocked bar with seating on the river for those wishing to watch some London live action, and a restaurant serving up a range of dishes for anyone who’s not full after their popcorn.

8 mins

Ministry of Sound

The world-famous superclub, with multiple floors, rooms bars and VIP lounges, has been around since 1991, and is still the place to head for a night of all-out dancing. DJs from around the world have played here, bringing electronic music of every kind from house to dubstep to its walls. And after a night of dance floor action, you can rest safe in the knowledge that Pure Paris Gardens is only a short walk away. 

14 mins walk

The National Theatre

The National Theatre is a national treasure, having been around since the early 60s and in its current iconic concrete home since the mid-70s. Everything from classic Shakespeare to the most contemporary plays have taken place within its walls and on its stages over the years, attracting hundreds of thousands through its doors. Though the NT also takes shows on tour to other UK theatres, and beams selected performances out live to cinemas across the country, but the best way to experience it is on London’s Southbank.

8 mins walk

The Royal Festival Hall

The Royal Festival Hall has the Festival of Britain to thank for its existence. The Grade I listed building was opened back in 1951 and is now the heart of the sprawling Southbank Centre, welcoming up to 2,500 people for some of the world’s premier performances, from concerts to dance. It’s become the de facto home of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, but also hosts a wide and varied programme of events. You never know what you might find on at the Royal Festival Hall, there could be a talk from your music idol or a full-blown Bollywood film shoot.

10am - 11pm every day

7 mins

Lamb and Flag

Any sufferers of writer’s block can do what Charles Dickens used to and head to the Lamb and Flag pub in Covent Garden. The historic watering hole, said to be London’s oldest, has been serving the city since 1772, but there’s a lot to be said for visiting in modern times: the regular bare-knuckle boxing bouts held here in the nineteenth century meant you were as likely to get covered in blood as you were to get a beer. These days, thankfully, the pub sticks to more conventional entertainment, namely a good range of ales, beers, spirits and soft drinks and traditional British cuisine.

Mon – Sat 11am – 11pm, Sun 12pm – 10.30pm

17 mins walk


Cubana’s colourful building brings a taste of Latin American to the heart of Waterloo. There’s always plenty going on: by day, its street food is sold, as you might guess, outside on the street and makes for an exotic lunch on the go, while the main kitchen serves up heartier portions of fresh meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan options with a South American flavour. When the sun sets Cubana turns up the heat with a range of live Latino music. A weekly line-up of bands, soloists and DJs provide a soundtrack that keeps the party going until the small hours.

Free entry before 11pm. Open 7 days, see website for times

8 mins

The Sherlock Holmes

If you like a bit of history with your dinner The Sherlock Holmes is the place to come. Back in 1957 an exhibition commemorating Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous character Sherlock Holmes was created for the Festival of Britain and then found a home at the Northumberland Arms pub, which promptly changed its name and became a shine to the great detective. The bar, restaurant and roof terrace is now packed with items including a mock-up of Holmes’ study and a stuffed, mounted head of the Hound of the Baskervilles. They serve a good pint of Sherlock Holmes ale too.

Open 7 days; 11am – 11pm, and until midnight of Fr and Sat

14 mins

The London Eye

One of the best ways to get to know a city is to see it from above. In Paris you climb the Eiffel Tower, and in London you step into one of The London Eye’s air-conditioned pods. Since it opened in 2000, the £70 million ferris wheel has become the UK’s most popular attraction, taking visitors 135 metres into the air to give incredible views over the capital. One of the best times to visit is after dark, when city lights shine as far as the eye can see. Students can book online to get a 10 per cent discount.

Open daily, times differ throughout the year.

9 mins

Namco Funscape

This is the place to let your inner child out for the night. Three floors of activities, including Europe’s fastest bumper cars, 12 lanes of bowling (with the added bonus being able to wear your own shoes) and American pool tables, put the ‘fun’ in Funscape. Or there’s the option of the private karaoke rooms, which come with the UK’s biggest collection of Chinese and Japanese tracks, where you can sing your heart out safe in the knowledge you’re not annoying your neighbours.

Open 7 days 10am – midnight.

9 mins

Culture Visits

Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square is as much a symbol of London as red buses or Buckingham Palace. Named after a naval victory against France in The Battle of Trafalgar, a 200ft-high Lord Nelson stands proudly at the top of his column guarded by four huge stone lions. But the square moves with the times. Today it's used for everything from protests to New Year celebrations, and has a plinth which showcases modern sculpture.

16 mins walk

Southbank Undercroft

If you’re at home on four wheels, or would like to be, the Southbank Centre skate park on the bank of the Thames is the place to go. For close to 50 years the undercroft has been the centre of the London skateboarding scene, as well as a mecca for skaters around the world, the subject of documentaries and a controversial space constantly under threat of closure by authorities keen to make money from the valuable prime space. But for now, the ledges, banks and stairs of the park are open, free and full of riders of all abilities and backgrounds.

8 mins

The Royal Festival Hall

The Royal Festival Hall has the Festival of Britain to thank for its existence. The Grade I listed building was opened back in 1951 and is now the heart of the sprawling Southbank Centre, welcoming up to 2,500 people for some of the world’s premier performances, from concerts to dance. It’s become the de facto home of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, but also hosts a wide and varied programme of events. You never know what you might find on at the Royal Festival Hall, there could be a talk from your music idol or a full-blown Bollywood film shoot.

10am - 11pm every day

7 mins

The Victoria and Albert Museum

Wandering around the largest museum of art and design to be found anywhere is like taking a free world tour: the beautiful building is packed with glass, textiles, jewellery and photographs from North America to North Africa and beyond. And the best part? Entrance is free. A visit to the historic V&A building, which was founded in 1852, is a great way to explore the globe on a budget and while away the weekend.

Open 10.00 – 17.45 daily, until 22.00 on Fridays

Shakespear's Globe

They may not be the exact boards trodden by the bard himself, but the Shakespeare’s Globe is as close as it’s possible to get to the Elizabethan theatre experience. The original Globe Theatre, which was just 230 metres from the modern reconstruction, burnt down in 1613. Its replacement was then demolished three decades later, so, after a considerable wait, the current incarnation was lovingly reproduced in 1995. It’s since staged various productions of every one of the great playwright’s works within its curved walls, with half the audience opting for seats in one of its three tiers, and the others standing in front of the stage just as Shakespeare’s contemporary fans would have.

Times and program varies.

8 mins

Somerset House

If the walls of this palatial mansion could speak, they could tell an insider story of Britain’s royal history. Past residents include Queen Elizabeth I, Charles I, Oliver Cromwell (whose body was laid in state here) and then Charles II.  It was left empty during the great plague, and just managed to survive the great fire of London. It hosted some of the most grand masquerade balls and housed great works of art. And these days the vast property has become a major arts and cultural centre, hosting a varied program of exhibitions, plays, films, readings and fashion events throughout the year.
