Hyde Park is a tranquil oasis within the capital that is perfect for romantic walks and family days out. Rowing boats and pedalos are both available for hire at the Serpentine Lake and deck chairs are also available- perfect for packing a picnic and enjoying the summer weather. Hyde Park is also host to various events throughout the year, so be sure to check ahead to see if there are music concerts or children’s activities on during your visit. For a lively atmosphere and traditional American style cuisine, Hard Rock cafe remains an old favourite. Situated just a stone’s throw from the park, it’s full of memorabilia from your favourite musicians and serves up world famous burgers alongside sides such as chicken wings and potato skins. If you’re after something a bit less mainstream why not tuck into some traditional British fish and chips at the independently run Golden Union Fish Bar.
London is a shoppers paradise and Oxford Street itself is known throughout the world as one of the best places to shop till you drop. Enjoy fashion favourites such as Russel and Bromley, Next and Mango amongst hundreds more. To avoid the crowds, the earlier you get there the better, with hardcore shoppers arriving just after opening times at 9am. At the end of a long day shopping, make sure you grab a much deserved drink at one of the traditional British pubs in the area. The Argyll Arms is a gorgeous Victorian pub serving ales and pub grub such as toad in the hole and pie and mash- an absolute must for tourists wanting to experience the real London.
