  • Two Brewers

    This very traditional and very good English pub right outside my flat has free wi-fi - their wi-fi provider The Cloud offers free wi-fi in all branches of McDonalds, Caffe Nero, Pret and Wetherspoons.

    Monmouth St London WC2H 9EP
  • Neal's Yard

    Neal's Yard, 30 seconds from the apartment, is famous for its Remedies, but less famous as the home of the classic British comedy Monty Python. Try the upstairs Wild Food Café for a healthy lunch.

    Neal's Yard
  • Monmouth Coffee Company

    The flat overlooks Monmouth Street, the home of Monmouth Coffee. People say it's the finest in London. Personally I'm happy with Starbucks, which astonishingly has more shops in London than New York.

    Monmouth St London Greater London
  • The Phoenix Garden

    Your very own secret garden, under a minute's walk from my apartment. Almost a wilderness, right in the heart of the West End, known about by virtually no-one! Great spot for a ten-minute sit-down.

    London Greater London WC2H 8DG
  • Neal Street / Long Acre / Seven Dials

    Neal Street and Long Acre form the apex of Covent Garden's shopping. Seven Dials - my home - has fabulous boutique stores off each of its seven roads. The most unique shopping in London.

    Neal St London WC2H 9PA
  • Pret a Manger

    Prets are everywhere, for good reason - the freshest and best chain-store sandwiches you can buy. Coffees are great too - all fairtrade and organic. Try the avocado wrap, and the mozzarella croissant.

    Shelton St London WC2H 9HN
  • The Cross Keys

    A traditional picture-perfect English pub, with friendly staff. Standing outside with a beer is awesome. And if all that rampant heterosexuality gets a bit too much, there's a gay sauna underneath.

    Endell Street London Greater London WC2H 9EB
  • The Montagu Pyke

    One of the Wetherspoons pubs, great for really cheap breakfasts. Between 8am and midday you can get a fried free-range egg sandwich and a latté for £2.49 - at that price you really can't go wrong.

    Charing Cross Road London WC2H 0BP
  • The Spice of Life

    Next to the Palace Theatre, this heralds the gateway to Soho, London's nightlife capital. A decent pub to stand outside with a drink and people-watch, before you venture forth to explore more of Soho.

    Moor Street London Greater London W1D 5NA
  • Marks and Spencer

    Damn I love M&S. Britain loves M&S. Their food, quality and ethics are the highest of any supermarket. Great place for lunch or to stock up for a picnic. And reasonable rates for currency exchange.

    Long Acre London Greater London WC2E 9NT
  • 3 Store

    Do NOT buy a SIM card from the machine at the airport! Go to the 3 Store, ask for a £1 SIM card plus £10 prepay credit on the 321 plan. At 1p per megabyte, you'll have plenty of data during your stay.

    Shaftesbury Ave London W1D 5DA
  • Hippodrome Casino

    Want a late-night bar open til 4am with free admission every night? Try our classiest casino. Head to the 3rd floor with its almost-indoor smoking terrace. If you gamble, it's cheaper in the basement.

    Cranbourn Street London WC2H 7JH
  • Old Compton Street

    This street forms the epicentre of London's gay scene, in south east Soho. Comptons, Admiral Duncan, G-A-Y, Duke of Wellington, Ku Bar, Village, Yard, Rupert Street - all just two minutes' walk away.

    Old Compton St London W1D
  • Masala Zone

    A modern take on Indian food with a British accent. The thalis that give you a bit of everything are outstanding, and at lunchtimes they're are cheap as chips. Have the chana dabalroti starter too.

    Floral Street Covent Garden WC2E 9DA
  • Tesco Metro

    Our largest supermarket chain. One in seven pounds spent on anything at all in the UK is spent at Tesco. There are 49 branches within two miles of the apartment. But I much prefer M&S.

    Bedford Street WC2E 9EQ
  • Koshari Street

    It sells one thing - Egypt's national dish Koshari - fast, cheap, relatively healthy, and absolutely delicious. You need answer just one question: "how hot do you want your sauce"? Your answer: "mad".

    Saint Martin's Lane England WC2N 4EA
  • Covent Garden FX

    The best value currency exchange place I know of, off the south edge of Covent Garden Piazza. Wherever you change your currency, don't do it at a London airport, the most expensive place possible!

    WC2E 8BE
  • Leicester Square

    Film central - movie premieres are held here, often at Europe's largest cinema the Odeon Leicester Square. Also hosts tkts, the genuine discount theatre tickets booth - all others are tourist traps.

    Shaftesbury Avenue London Greater London WC2H 8AH
  • The Old Crown

    Most bars close at 11pm, or 10.30pm on Sundays. This one's open until midnight Sundays to Wednesdays, and 3am Thursdays to Saturdays. Definitely worth remembering when you want another pint or five...

    New Oxford Street London WC1A 1BH
  • Covent Garden Piazza

    Tourist nirvana or hell - your choice - but it's gotta be seen! Hosts one of the world's largest Apple stores, for lovers of crippled overpriced tech (said the Android programmer).

    Covent Garden London WC2E 8HH
  • Primark on Oxford Street

    You can buy a suit here for £14. No, really. People come to London from far and wide just to stock up at "Primani", for their acceptable-enough-quality clothes at ludicrously low prices.

    Oxford St London England W1D
  • Wagamama

    Fast food but good food, Japanese fusion done well. There are several branches within a 10-minute walk. Try the yasai itame noodle bowl, with some salted edamame on the side. Good juices too.

    Tavistock Street London WC2E 7PG
  • Post Office

    The closest post office.

    William IV Street London WC2N 4DL
  • British Museum

    The country's top tourist attraction, with 5.8 million visitors a year. And it's free.

    Great Russel Street London WC1B 3DG
  • National Gallery

    Five million visitors a year can't be wrong. The National Portrait Gallery is adjacent to it too. Free, and six minutes' walk from my apartment.

    Trafalgar Square Greater London WC2N 5DN
  • Mildreds Vegetarian Restaurant

    Great starters and hearty mains with the best desserts ever at this unfussy vegetarian restaurant. Reservations not taken and mid-evenings you'll queue, so try lunchtimes or afternoons. Closed Sundays

    Lexington Street London Greater London W1F 9
  • Waitrose

    The best "normal" supermarket, since M&S is mostly own-brand. This one's tiny, but it packs a punch. Owned by John Lewis, which also has a Waitrose food hall in its Oxford Street branch's basement.

    Tottenham Court Rd London England W1T
  • Trafalgar Square

    You'll know this when you get there, you'll have seen it a hundred times. It's six minutes' walk from my place. Get a classic tourist photo sitting astride one of Nelson's lions.

    Trafalgar Square London England WC2N
  • Sir John Soane's Museum

    Tiny, quirky, and free - well worth an hour's visit to look around the eclectic collection of this eccentric 19th century architect. Ask them to show you the amazing Picture Room.

  • The White Horse

    Around Carnaby Street in west Soho you'll find plenty of decent bars like The White Horse. A good area for an evening of barhopping. Afterwards, head to Kingly Street for late-night bars and clubs.

    Newburgh St London W1F 7RY
  • Catamaran boat ride to Greenwich

    Catch the Thames Clipper to Greenwich. Unbeatable photos passing under Tower Bridge. Span the Meridian line at the Observatory, and visit the Painted Room. The Emirates Air Line cable car is superb.

    Victoria Embankment London WC2N 6NU
  • Saint James's Park

    The closest of the Royal Parks to my place, and perhaps the most picturesque. With luck you'll get to see the pelicans close-up.

    London Greater London
  • Bond Street / New Bond Street

    Bond Street forms the heart of Mayfair's upscale shopping. On a British Monopoly board, Bond Street and Mayfair are the two purple squares. Lacerate your wallet here and you'll soon see why.

    New Bond St London W1S
  • John Lewis on Oxford Street

    Six floors of fantasy shopping, an upscale department store with reasonable prices too. All of the bedding, towels and carpet in my flat comes from here. For me, the true jewel of Oxford Street.

    Oxford Street London Greater London W1A 1EX
  • London Eye

    Expensive at around £22 each, but totally worth it. Make sure you go on a clear day. Sometimes you can get 2 for the price of 1 v(website hidden).uk when you buy two train tickets - ask me for info.

    Westminster Bridge Road London Greater London SE1 7PB
  • Spencer House

    A hidden gem, Princess Diana's family home in London. Only open on Sundays, £12 gets you an amazing guided tour of this spectacular stately home. I loved the Palm Room, it could have been Liberace's.

    Saint James's Place London Greater London SW1A 1NR
  • Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament

    One of the most famous sights in the world. Sometimes, in the dead of night, you can even hear it chiming in the flat. To get the perfect photo, cross Westminster Bridge and go down to the riverside.

    London SW1A 0AA
  • Selfridges on Oxford Street

    One of the great department stores. Prices may cause you to take a breath, but it's worth a look if you're doing the Oxford Street thing.

    Oxford Street London Greater London W1A 1AB
  • Buckingham Palace

    You know Lizzie's home if the Royal Standard flag's flying above the Palace. If it's the Union Jack she's probably off on a jolly at our expense. And "Changing of the Guard" is rubbish - don't do it!

    London England SW1A
