- Looking to grab a quick, healthy meal? LEON in Spitalfields is the place to go! LEON takes fast food to a new level. They offer a variety of quick, healthy options for those on the go. Craig’s top recommendation is the hot smoked salmon super salad!
- Want to get out and observe the beautiful nature and scenery of London? Craig recommends visiting Regents Park. It is filled with beautiful plant life and landscaping. You’ll also find the zoo there!
- Want to learn more about the English culture? Craig suggests going to the Victoria and Albert museum for historical art. But it is not just enough to observe art put on display in galleries. Craig also recommends hitting the streets and viewing street art. One spot Craig loves is the ever changing tapestry of Brick Lane and Shoreditch.
- Lastly, you can’t visit London without having a cup of tea or coffee! The Brick Lane Coffee shop is the place to go. It offers a cool vibe. But putting up some heavy competition is the Truman brewery café. It is located just a few blocks down on Brick Lane as well.
