Tours of Parliament only happen when Parliament isn’t sitting, but there’s no other easy way for a proper look around the country’s most interesting building, which I’m lucky to call my office. Not many other functioning democracies have a Queen’s Robing Room. In my opinion, ours shouldn’t either, but it’s certainly worth a look. Get in quick. The place is falling down. We’re not quite sure exactly when, but soon, probably around 2022, the entire place is probably going to shut for at least six years for a massive restoration job that is going to cost £6 billion or more.

Informative guided and audio tours of the beautiful and ornate parliament building. It's great to see the place in real life, rather than just on the tele!

Guy Fawkes tried to blow it up in 1605. We're rather glad he didn't as it's history goes back to 1252 - I think.

Book a tour in advance online... it is well worth it! Direct from Gloucester Road tube station on Piccadilly line to Westminster tube station.

You need to get that iconic photo with Big Ben, opposite is Westminster Abbey, you can walk through St James Park to Buckingham Palace. Or take a boat along the river to take in the sights.

Cafe
“Traditional English Afternoon Tea The Thames Foyer is very much the heart of The Savoy. A stunning glass dome floods this sociable spot with wonderful natural light – and beneath this, a pianist serenades guests from a winter garden gazebo, as they enjoy our world-famous afternoon tea. Afternoon Tea at The Savoy is an enduring custom where guests can choose from a range of teas served with finger sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream & jam and a mouth-watering selection of seasonal cakes and pastries created by The Savoy’s Executive Pastry Chef, Ludwig Hely.”

“Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s Hotel, observing our nation’s culinary heritage for the best part of 150 years. For a century or more, our Executive Chefs have remained faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones served warm, and sweet pastries. Our ingredients are painstakingly sourced, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day. The centrepiece of afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. Our wonderful tea connoisseur, Henrietta Lovell, has scoured the world to bring us delicious tea from small, little known producers from the four corners of the world. Working hand in hand with our Executive Chef, Martyn Nail.”

Route
“Duck under the arches behind Maltby Street and you'll arrive at Druid Street, a much more rough-and-ready street-food market. On this stretch, signs are few and far between so it helps to follow your nose. Pojang serves up authentic Korean street-food, Decatur has the best oyster po boys and Rock My Bowl's smoothie bowls manage to make breakfast genuinely exciting. The revolving weekly stalls mean you'll find new vendors every time. On our last visit we discovered Jake's Soul Spread selling incredible jams on their Druid Street debut. The treacle-thick salted butter with honey even comes with a soul and funk breakfast soundtrack.”
