Your Go-To London City Guide

If you’re anything like us, we love reading travel advice and guides to places when we’re planning any trip, whether it’s business or personal! So we thought we’d round-up some of the best in London, our capital city and the heart of UK business! And if you didn’t know the home to one of our new offices, so we thought it would be the best place to start!

It’d take you a long time to work your way through all the attractions London has to offer. But if you’ve already visited Buckingham Palace, toured the Tower of London and climbed to the top of the Shard, what can you do on your second visit, or third or fourth? Here’s our pick of some of the best hints and tips and unusual things to see and do in London.

 


Transport

 

 

Now you’ve probably already been on the tube a dozen times, but if you’re still getting lost this one might be one for you! London Underground has produced the best tube planner around and it even works offline too! So stay up to date with service alerts, line closures and the best routes and download this one!

Did you know? The Underground has been used for filming everything from Bond film Skyfall to BBC series Sherlock!

 

 

But if you don’t feel like getting into a packed train, why not jump into a cab instead!

Now, we’re sure you’ll have heard the palaver that’s going on with Uber, so we won’t bore you with the details but we will tell you that we can book any transport for you! Just let us know where you need to get to and we’ll make sure we get you from A to B in a flash.

 


Business

 

 

Need an office for the day? London is full of great co-working offices, whether you want to work alone or use a meeting room, there’s some great spaces available! And if you go to Spaces Oxford Street you’ll even get wifi, projector and unlimited hot drinks! Spaces offers a working solution in the heart of London. Located less than a five minute walk from bustling Oxford Circus or get off the beaten track by slipping into a quiet side street laced with cafes and boutiques, or unwind in one of the nearby city square gardens. If this one’s every booked up a few minutes down the road is Air Space London (you can also host events here!)

Wind down and explore some of the fun and unusual highlights of London

 

 

Want to catch a great film? Maybe a new release or a good old classic? Then head to one of the three Rooftop Film Clubs, for the ultimate outdoor film experience.  Placed amongst some of the most iconic city backdrop’s around the world. With panoramic views and stunning sunsets, movies have never looked so great!

 

 

Feeling childlike? Head over to Ballie Ballerson in Shoreditch, a ball pit cocktail bar with one million balls, retro sweetie cocktails and damn good food – the ultimate adult playground to get loose.

 

 

Want dinner with an odd twist? Yes? Then Circus is the best place to be, a circus-themed pan–Asian restaurant and bar based in Covent Garden. Despite the name, the entertainment here isn’t the usual clowns in collapsible cars or the flying trapeze but from a new breed of cabaret acts: the long banquet table doubles as a catwalk for fire-eaters, burlesque acts and dancers.

 

 

Best coffee in town? The Attendant, Fitzrovia is one of London’s most original locations for a coffee bar! A nineteenth-century gents’ toilet. The urinals provide seating with tables, and the Attendant is even restored back to the Victorian floor tiling. Anything from cold sandwiches, hot sandwich of the day, salads or a simple but magnificently brewed coffee.

Handy Tip! This place is small, and rammed at weekday lunchtimes. So head over there mid morning or afternoon for a chance to have a proper chill out coffee.
