Stamford Bridge

As the home of Chelsea FC, this iconic stadium is perhaps the capital’s best known football ground. The clubs recent rise to power and subsequent popularity have transformed their image from London heavy hitter to world class juggernaut. The Champions’ League win in 2012 secured their place in the pantheon

The National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery is a little bit of an oddity in the art world of London. There are few other institutions so dedicated to one theme: most of them struggle to even settle on a prominent medium. That alone should make it worth a visit, but the gallery also

The V&A

The V&A is one of the museums centered in Kensington’s beautiful block of cultural buildings. Unlike its siblings however, this one has a little more edge to it. Although children are both admitted and encouraged, there’s a definite sense that this is a very grown up learning experience, a triumph

The Truscott Arms

The Truscott Arms is a pub in the truest sense of the word. Dark wood and a fairly dingy decor might not the kind of thing that you expect to see in a recommendation but trust us: it works here. The age of whitewashed pubs that look like they want

London Ibis City

London Ibis City is one of those cheaper hotels that somehow manages to get away with it. Compared to the plush carpets and unrepentant luxury of the other hotels you’ll find in Central London, it looks a little sparse and basic, but you won’t mind. There’s just something about it

City Athletic Gym

The favoured gym of the high powered banking industry, City Athletic is an unrepentant shrine to dedication, hard work and sheer testosterone. It’s definitely not a place for casuals, though it does offer a great beginners service. Really though, if you’re someone who’ll end up going to maybe 2 sessions
