From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
Tower of London was definitely worth seeing! Amazing history hides in its walls. Honestly everything about it is cool! I loved everything inside and I would 10/10 recommend seeing it when you’re in London. However, the summer can get quite busy in London for tourists and makes the lines for the Tower extremely long. Plan your visit! Maybe even purchase...
The architecture is just incredible and its worth it to go inside and take a look around. We happened to be in the area during lunchtime and there were lots of people just having lunch on the grounds from nearby offices. The grounds are also very nice with lots of seating.
"An excellent museum with a full history of 'London' from the very earliest times until present day."

Attractive restaurant tucked inside a brick arch. The huge wine collection and exposed brickwork make the whole place atmospheric and very attractive. We shared some cheese and charcuterie to start, and then had the Cotswold chicken, which was delicious - moist, beautifully flavoured and served with perfect cabbage. A couple of minor gripes - the acoustics mean that with any...
I had dinner here on a Friday and it was simply amazing.
We chose the 6 course tasting menu which was excellent - the portions were slightly bigger than the usual tasting menu portion size, so come the end we were struggling a little! Definitely would have been defeated by the 8 course!
There’s the option of having the truffle...
Four of us went to Omnino on the bases we were walking past, it’s only been open for 3 months so the setting/decor was very clean and well finished.
I had the Argentinian Wagyu grade 5 400g £60
I asked for my steak medium rare but was served rare, even tho the steak was very nice it was under cooked...
A friend & I used the groupon deal - 3 courses for for £20, which was an amazing bargain. Staff were exceptional, warm and welcoming. The gentleman at the host position was so wonderful, patient and accommodating. We weren't treated differently because of the voucher and the food was wonderful - the restaurant was intimate and warm. I highly recommend!...
Had a 2 night stay in January 2018. Everything was top notch from start to finish. Hotel even supplied our favourite kind of Nespresso capsules allowing us to enjoy our weekend ritual of coffee in bed before the start of of each day. We ordered room service breakfast and it arrived exactly on time as well. I couldn't fault the...
We spent two nights here and were thoroughly impressed. As usual with the brand, the staff were fantastic and service was impeccable.

Location of the hotel is excellent. 5 minutes walk from Banks tube, less than 5 minutes to Moorgate tube and 7-10 minutes to Liverpool Street Station.
The check in was fast and without any problems, very helpful and friendly staff. I came too early for actual check inn time but I was allowed to leave my luggage at the hotel...
My wife and I stayed here for the night when we visited the theatre. It was a short walk from the Tube and only 10 mins to Covent Garden. Perfect not to just taxi and be able to walk. Lovely location in a very quiet court yard off Fleet Street. We had the stand by up grade and was really...
