London remains a timeless city with an age-old history spanning over two millennia. It is no wonder scores of visitors walk through this city each day to be enchanted by that charm. And what better way to enjoy London than seeing the historic attractions and novel experiences as you relish the culinary delights?


A Hearty English Breakfast at Terry’s Cafe

This breakfast is not only loved by all British families but its warm aroma-filled goodness on a plate is also relished by visitors to the capital such as those using luxury hotels in London. A great way to enjoy this hefty breakfast is after a late night out or if you intend to spend the morning doing a lot of walking and sightseeing.


Treat your eyes and nostrils before you tuck into sausages, baked beans, fried egg, tomato, bacon and the complete outfit of toast, butter, Jam, and of course black pudding (blood sausage) plus tea/coffee. Terry’s Café has been serving locals and visitors since 1982 and the current owner is the son of Terry who founded this rough diamond shining bright at present.


Enjoy the filling and heartwarming meal to fuel up for the day in the typical British ambience of Black and White Photos of locals in Victorian Attire, ancient radio and the majestic Union Jack in attendance.


You can easily cover a few landmarks Tower Bridge, Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Shard and Millenium Bridge as you commence the day’s explorations.


Tempting Fish and Chips at Poppies

No visit to London will be fulfilling unless you try their favourite staple, Fish and Chips. A great filler in between your daily excursions to the city.  Head towards Poppies in Camden to get a hearty portion of this snack at their trendy setting.


Tuck into the perfectly battered flavour oozing fish and crispy chips making you almost addicted to both. Most places serve well-done mushy peas along with the famous duo. This is reasonably priced and two people can share one portion unless both are ravenous.


Once replete you can also visit the cosmopolitan Camden Market which holds a great attraction for visitors and is frequented by guests from hotels like Pan Pacific London. Check for handicraft items, clothing, knick-knacks, and even fast food at this interesting market.
