Guildhall Art Gallery
This gallery is something that should definitely be on your list of things to do while visiting! Established in 1885, the Gallery displays paintings and sculptures that belong to the Corporation of London. The collection includes many artifacts from the 16th century to today, plus you can view what the form of London looked like in the 17th Century.
Last Tuesday Society shop
There is so much that can be said about this attraction. A fabulous 21st Century take on the classic Victorian cabinet of curiosities. A visit will not leave you disappointed. This attraction is devoted to exploring and furthering the eccentric, literary, and artistic aspects of life in London and beyond. While I wouldn’t recommend it for young children, one can expect to see a range of things. You will find peacocks and winged animals, to sculptures and skulls of all sizes, as well as odd, yet antique speculums. The shop's website describes it as "an attempt to recreate or reinterpret, within 21st century sensibilities, a 17th century Wunderkabinett".
People say that that Thames Barrier should be made the eighth wonder of the world. Whether or not a person agrees is certainly not the point. Checking this out is something that I would recommend to anyone visiting the area. These enormous gates which can be raised given the circumstance of an exceptionally high tide will save central London from floods that could be cause for mass destruction. You can view these gates at the information center of Woolwich, or by the most preferred method, a nice boat ride.
Wilton’s Music Hall
For music lovers at heart, take a peek at the world’s oldest and only surviving music hall. It is a crumbling treasure in the literal sense. You can actually arrange to take a tour, as well as check out the events that are held at this location on a regular basis. The music hall has a very intriguing history. It also served as a rag warehouse in the 50’s and a shelter during the blitz. It is withering away, so be sure to visit it before it is gone forever.
Where to stay
If you are traveling to London, why not travel in style? Boutique hotels in London are the way to go, hands down! Why, you might ask? Since the beginning of the twenty first century, the hotel industry has become over-supplied with chain hotel brands. The definition of hotel would be a lodging accommodation for travelers. Nowadays, when traveling, people are expecting more than simply convenience or comfort. For this reason I would recommend the following:
Industrial architecture and design make this hotel rank high on my recommendations. The arts have a clear influence in the design of this hotel; the eighteen rooms and suites are all inspired by a different artistic movement or designer. The rooms are spacious, too. Don't miss the popular rooftop with views over Shoreditch and London.
As with the Boundary, impeccable style reigns. Along with this, you're in Central London, surrounded by Royal addresses in Belgravia and Buckingham Palace. Belgraves channels its inner New York bohemian with a taste for the finer things. A special “know before you go" tip: the higher up you go in regards to rooms and floors, the better the view. If you're after an amazing view, ask for a room looking over the square---you won’t regret it.
