Hamleys

Famous for its wonderful window displays, it’s impossible to walk past without being drawn inside – even if you don't have children accompanying you. And once inside, you’ll have an astonishing 40,000 toys and games to discover in what is more ‘funfair’ than ‘shop’. So, go wild and let your inner child out.

Historic pubs.

Historic pubs

A pint in an ancient ale house is an absolute must on any trip to London. There are hundreds, all with amazing stories to tell. Try the Olde Cheshire Cheese, a favourite of Dr Johnson and Arthur Conan Doyle. Its winding staircases and cosy interior are straight out of a Charles Dickens story.
