Whilst I am completely biased, I truly believe that London holds some of the most iconic, culturally diverse, and amazing things to do and see (shop, and eat). If you have a few hours to spare while attending LiNC Local London, be sure to go see some of my personal favorites.
Best way to get around: Google Maps!
What to see:
Camden is home to a lot of London's grunge and alternative scenes, but its Market is an experience that you can't miss - it's buzzing with loads of stalls, street food, artisans, stuff you didn't think you need, antiques, vintage shops and it’s great for just overall people watching.
During the summer, the Southbank is buzzing with open air cafes, street food, street performers and an all-round summer vibe. From there you can head Eastbound to the Tate and the Millenium Bridge, or West towards Big Ben.
Start off by exploring Covent Garden’s cute and quirky market, before heading towards Leicester Square and Chinatown. Make your way up through Soho, and make sure you don’t miss Carnaby Street and visit Liberty – one of the oldest department stores in the world. From there you can either go down Regent Street and visit Picadilly Circus, or walk down Oxford Street towards Hyde Park.
Less grungy than Camden, Spitalfields and Shoreditch are the up-and-coming areas of Hipster London and the home of the best curries in London down Brick Lane. Loads of small boutique shops, independent designers and pop up shops. Oh, and food. Always food.
