London is known for having some of the world’s oldest and most iconic luxury hotels. It’s not surprising, considering it’s one of the world’s oldest cities. It was founded by the Romans back around 50 AD, and the concept of letting a guest stay in one’s house, or accommodation so to speak, actually dates back to Biblical times.
I remember going to farms as a youngster; the excitement of seeing all the animals, feeding them, and thinking I could actually talk to them. My favorite were the sheep and goats who nearly took your hand with them when they gobbled up the food you gave them. Now that i’m older I realize, to my disappointment, that I am no Dr Doolittle. However, the memories of visiting farms as a youngster are still very vivid and i’m sure I learnt a thing or to when I visited them!
“Can you take the service charge off the bill please?”

Sushi has seen its popularity sore recently with boutique restaurants opening up all over London. One of the main reasons for this surge is claims that it’s a great food for your health, as well as tonnes of celebrities eating it. In all honesty its actually pretty calorific and high in sugar due to the way the sushi rice is made, Sashimi Sushi is actually the healthiest as there’s no rice! However, i’m not attracted to the food for the health benefits, the main reason for my love of Sushi is the fact that it just tastes bloody good.
There’s a general rule when it comes places to go and things to do in destinations:
If the locals like it then its bloody good and you’re going to have a unique experience.
Greenwich in South East London is no different and contains hidden gems that you wont find through your tour operators. This list contains a Sushi restaurant, a pub, a wine bar, a jazz cub an a planetarium! Variety is the spice of life 😉
Excuse me sir, no photos!
Alright Kanye, calm down.
I have to say, the start to my Sky Garden adventure was a rather annoying one; a very well dressed security guard jumping up in front of me to stop me taking a photo of the entrance lobby was not what I expected – I still got the photo though 😉
