London, England - Full-Time Travel

London, England

London, England

Avoid the tourist traps, see London's best.

Across the pond, London has been luring visitors into its city for years. London’s old-yet-modern feel intrigues history buffs, city lovers, fashionistas, and foodies alike. We got the insider scoop on the best of the Big Smoke from Wallpaper* Magazine’s Publisher, Malcolm Young. He’s one of those insiders that you can blindly follow with confidence into all the top-notch eateries, unforgettable hotels and local attractions the city has to offer.

Did You Know?

There are around 20 subterranean rivers flowing beneath London's streets. There was once more than the Thames River flowing through London, but the waterways started to become a nuisance to the city for various reasons, so they began paving over them. Now, many of these waterways are flowing underneath houses, restaurants, parks, and more.


A Day at the Markets

London is full of markets — but these two are top of our list. Borough Market, located by the London Bridge, is a foodie’s dream-come-true. The market is open Monday-Saturday, but if you want to catch the full market, plan to go between Wednesday-Saturday. The list of stalls is extensive ranging from charcuterie meat, cheeses, fish, chocolates, spices, and more.

Portobello Road Market, located in the trendy Notting Hill neighborhood, is another favorite of ours. Visit on a Saturday to get a taste of all the market has to offer from the latest fashion, to antiques and even food. While Saturday might be the busiest day, it’s also the main day for the antiques market, which is what Portobello Road is most known for.

Delicious Indian food isn’t hard to find in London, but when you find a place that stands out the way Gunpowder does, you know you’re in the right spot. Young loves Gunpowder for its specific menu filled with home-style Indian food in Spitalfields, London. The menu takes inspiration from family recipes and the vibrant flavors of home cooking. You may not find your typical Indian dishes here, but you’ll definitely leave feeling beyond satisfied. One look at Gunpowder’s colorful, hearty offerings on their Instagram page and this will be your first stop straight from customs.

Chiltern Firehouse 

The Chiltern Firehouse hotel offers mouthwatering options for breakfast, lunch and dinner in their contemporary restaurant. They are equipped with Michelin-starred chef, Nuno Mendes, who has a career as a chef in both America and Europe, and blends flavors together to create new takes on old favorites. Mendes puts an emphasis on seasonality and healthy eating within his cooking (think acai smoothie bowls for breakfast). For lunch or dinner, be sure to taste the market oysters from the Raw Bar. Young claims this spot as one of his favorites in London for both an incredible meal and luxury stay. He’s also let us in on a secret that the bar menu has hints of a classic, American summer barbecue — look here for the best burger in London and mac-and-cheese that will rival mom’s.

"Checking into Estelle Manor, the closest thing to a Saltburn-esque staycation you`ll ever experience in the UK. Imagine a beautifully restored Jacobean manor on the cusp of the Cotswolds and nestled within 3,000 acres of Oxfordshire parkland, with extravagant interiors to match (expect bold artworks and intricate details around each corner), a Riviera-style pool to lounge by, and three different restaurant to sink your teeth into. The addition of the hotel`s new Eynsham Baths (an incredible spa modelled on traditional Roman baths) really takes the hotel up another notch, despite it already being in a league of its own." - @ginagoesto ...
