With the magnificent Tower of London on your doorstep, you’d be silly not to take a tour around the former Royal Palace. The Yeoman Warders, also known as Beefeaters, are an iconic symbol of Britain and give tours throughout the day as part of your entrance fee. Let them entertain you with stories about former prisoners and their gruesome tortures and execution techniques that were used within these medieval walls. The crown jewels are also exhibited here, featuring the world’s most famous diamonds. You’ll be able to marvel at the beautiful Imperial State Crown and the Sovereign’s Sceptre with Cross which contains the world’s largest colourless diamond.
London’s oldest market is Spitalfields, conveniently located just a stone’s throw from this deluxe hotel. The Trader’s Market has over 110 stalls, selling vintage fashion, bespoke furniture and antiques amongst others. It’s a great day out to experience a slice of London culture and of course pick up some bargain souvenirs from your trip. The Art market sells a range of works from both upcoming and established artists and is worth at least a browse if not just to see some free artwork.
Galvin La Chapelle is a critically acclaimed restaurant in Spitalfield’s, and a perfect destination for a romantic meal or special occasion. Situated within the 19th century St. Botolph’s Hall, you’ll be feasting on the best of French bistro cuisine in truly elegant surroundings. If you’re visiting with children, Sunday lunch is a great family affair with board games, toys and live jazz to bring everyone together. East London also benefits from a lively nightlife, with plenty of traditional pubs, wine bars and nightclubs within easy reach. For hardcore clubbers, Fabric is the place to go, whilst the Queen of Hoxton has more of a chic clientele.
