London is trendy – there is no denying it – and our “hip city” will be the centre of attention this year as it plays host to the 2012 Olympics. Now here comes the tricky part; if we are honest, being a tourist isn’t classed as being trendy, so to really get the best from this hip city you need to wander a little off the normal tourist tracks and blend in with the locals.
The markets are a great place to bag a bargain but most people come to sit in the coffee shops that offer possibly every coffee flavour known to man, plus yummy homemade cakes; trendy ones that is!
Walk the streets that are decorated with amazing graffiti and packed full of restaurants and markets. Brick Lane was once home to the infamous Jack the Ripper murders and has now been transformed into one of the city’s most exciting areas.
With all the history that surrounds the city of London, it’s not hard to guess that museums are top of most tourists’ hit list. If you want to stay away from the big museums and you’re looking for something a little quirky, then head to Dennis Severs House. This 18th century house in East London has 10 rooms that have been set out to match the art pieces by Dennis Sever.
