This is a very traditional bit of London and I take friends for a stroll to the river and a coffee at Tate Modern or a fabulous Turkish meal at EV's on nearby Isabella Street. The best bit is there is a restaurant, cafe and shop - perfect for a taste of the trip back home. When my neices stay they go off clubbing at Ministry of Sound - less than a mile for the walk home. My gay friends go to Heaven!! About a mile in the other direction. For me a coffee on the balcony listening to the sounds of the city is just fine.
