Some friends are going to London in December, and were asking for some travel tips. What to do, where to shop etc. Why not make a post on the blog, and give them the link? Here goes: They are staying at fab Hoxton Hotel:
Not far from the hotel they can shop at Old Spitalfields Market – and enjoy all the market stalls with clothes, food, arts and crafts etc. If you are here for lunchtime there are several good options, and even a branch of Wagamama is found here, one of my favorites asian chain restaurants in Europe. Here is a map and some photos from Old Spitalfields Market:

If they fancy more traditional shopping – why not go to One New Change? This brand new shopping centre opened on the 28th of October, and is situated next to St Paul’s Cathedral. It includes big-hitting brands, a new Jamie Oliver restaurant and a rooftop terrace!

And for cultural experiences: Go to Tate Modern and see the Gauguin exhibition!

If you still have som time left to spend – try out lunch at The Folly. This place is amazing – it´s both a flower shop and a restaurant.
