American Vintage is moving into London 185 Westbourne Grove W11 2SB. To mark the event, Les Marseillaises, after a travel in Marseille, shares her top tips for a long weekend in London Town.
The place to be:
Shoreditch has definitely become the most fashionable part of London. Mix with hipsters, avant-garde artists and young musicians in the area’s many fashionable bars, quality clothes stores and chic boutiques.
Eat local food: Look out for Kerbisher & Malt around London for the best Fish & Chips in town – fresh fish, traditional but chic décor and traditional recipes with modern-day twist.
Get all arty:
Head for the classy streets of Kensington to visit the Victoria & Albert, Natural History and Science Museums. The must-see exhibition is the permanent design and decorative arts collection at the V&A.
The Tate Modern is also a bit of a must, both in terms of its architecture (former Bankside power station) and the outstanding modern and contemporary art exhibitions. Enjoy the picturesque River Thames crossing to get there.
Get away from the tourists:
If you want to get away from the madding crowds, try Islington in North London, with its increasingly Bohemian atmosphere. It is a residential neighbourhood with a nice smattering of traditional pubs, fish ‘n’ chip shops and cute little restaurants.
Grab a bite or a drink: Check out Chez Elles bistroquet on Brick Lane. Two French exiles in London, Nadia and Aurélie, have opened this great little neighbourhood bistro, which has become a real hit with Londoners. You can eat in their ground-floor restaurant and stay the night in their BnB rooms on the first floor of the townhouse. You’ll be well looked after – the girls are on hand to give you their nightlife tips. And anyone who is missing that taste of Southern France can always ask for a little pastis at the bar!
Afternoon tea, ma’am:
A Traditional Afternoon Tea at the Savoy Hotel is the pinnacle of classic British style. Make sure you dress smart and enjoy the quaint scones and snacks with a perfect cup of tea. Make sure you’re not planning to eat out again that evening, this afternoon tea is sure to fill you up!
If you’re looking for a proper espresso to drink in or take away, hit the Shoreditch Grind which (strangely enough) is in Shoreditch. Not a bad place for cocktails, too.
Get some history: Visit the Museum of London, nestling in the heart of the City. The museum looks back on the history of the city. Don’t miss the Victorian Walk with its reconstituted shops and pubs from the time of Dickens.
You just have take home Kate and William masks or a Queen Elisabeth doll, to bring back a souvenir of the Royal Family!
Top Instagram spot:
The amazing Brick Lane market, with streets and streets of clothes, vintage bling, food trucks and chess players right in the middle of it all! The stallholders pack up at the end of the afternoon and leave the street to the young crowd looking for a trendy drinking spot.
