My parents came to visit from Paris, so we spent a week as “tourist guides”, which is very nice because you discover or re-discover parts of the city that you do not normally go to.

With them we went to

  • Old Spitafields Market (lovely London Tea Exchange)
  • Brick Lane
  • Guildhall
  • Covent Garden Market
  • Museum of the Docklands
  • Southwark Cathedral
  • St. Paul`s Cathedral
  • Royal Courts of Justice
  • Tate Modern
  • Parliament
  • Buckingham Palace
  • Walk along the Thames South Bank


And ate at:

  • The George
  • Cote
  • The Hornimans
  • 1 Lombard Street (after a meeting at the Royal Society of Medicine)
  • Apero (after a meeting at the Institute of Cancer Research)
  • The Grosvenor Hotel (afternoon tea, after a quick meeting at Victoria Station)

I hope they had as much fun as we did!
