When a man is tired of London he is tired of life


I grew up south of London, and while it’s always been a major tourist destination, the city has really transformed over the last 20 years. The combination of history and modernity is tough to match.

The Globe Theatre (Shakespeare's Globe)

London, United Kingdom • Wishlist • a year ago

Best place for watching Shakespeare in London of course. Pay 5 pounds and stand with the “groundlings” just as it would have been in Shakespeare’s day.

Rigby & Peller Mayfair

London, United Kingdom • Memory • a year ago

Has Matt gone mad? Does he have a hidden secret? Why is he recommending a bra shop? Well because they sell the best bras in London (so I’ve heard), supply the Queen, and have free coffee and biscuits to keep husbands happy.

The British Museum

London, United Kingdom • Recommendation • a year ago

One of the worlds greatest museum collections and completely free. Walk in off the street and in 30 seconds you are face to face with the Rosetta Stone.
