Leisure

For art enthusiasts, make sure you visit the British Museum and the National Gallery as their rich art collections are an absolute must-see.

Near to Leicester Square you’ll find Chinatown's Asian supermarkets and restaurants where you’re guaranteed to find amazing restaurants serving traditional Cantonese cuisine.

For a mature crowd looking for clubbing spots, head down to Shoreditch, East London where you’ll find a variety of exciting and reasonably priced nightclubs and bars. If clubbing is not your scene after an intense day of sightseeing, then there’s nothing better than a nice, long beer when you visit to one of the many pubs in the city of London.
