London is one of those cities that’s hard not to love. It has something for everyone; history on every corner, arts and culture, shopping at its best, and even a culinary following (finally). If you haven’t been overseas, make this your entrée!
London for the ….
Foodie – So England hasn’t been known for food over the years, but Jamie Oliver has changed that. Be sure to dine in at least one of his restaurants for a culinary treat.
Mickey Fan – Ok, so it’s not Disneyland but the London Eye is a real attraction and offers amazing views of the entire city. Go at sunset for a romantic view of the city.
Traditionalist – Be sure to dine at Rules. Established in 1798, Rules is the oldest restaurant in London. This is a restaurant that has aged like fine wine.
Shopaholic – Head to the Liberty department store. I love love love this department store. The architecture alone is enticing but the goods inside make it even more fun.
PBS Fan – Forget all the Downton Abbey hoopla and head over to Selfridges department store to relive PBS’s Mr. Selfridge series. Can you imagine Harry wandering through the store?
Tourist – None of us actually want to look like tourists, but London is really a good city for doing the Hop On Hop Off city bus tours. It allows you to go at your leisure and really makes good sense.
Pious – You can’t help but to feel in awe of God and His followers when visiting famous London cathedrals such at St. Paul’s and Westminster Abbey. Be sure to read Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth for a better understanding of what drove men to create such magnificent structures.
Kid at Heart – Stop in for a browse at Hamley’s, the oldest toy store in the world located on Regent Street. Guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again.
