Hay's Galleria

An often overlooked hidden gem - I see so many people go past this large structure without even looking at what's inside. There shops might be a bit basic but it's still a building that's unique in all of London. It gets very quiet here in the evening so is a nice spot to come and see by far the best views of the City from across the river. During Christmas time the place is decorated. Read more...

More London Place

A really modern, spacious, and clean estate with large office structures. What makes this place special is the view - being along side the river it's directly in front of Tower Bridge, with all to see from Tower of London to the City's skyscrapers just opposite. There are fountains in the floor that are very popular with children. A nice selection of fine restaurants keeps this place busy into the evening. Read more...

7 More London Riverside (PwC)

A regular accountants office on the inside, but a lush dark blue curved building on the outside. The foyer is also impressive with diagonal beams extending from a central pit. Read more...

Canary Wharf Tube Station

One of the most unique and memorable tube stations - one of those that people visiting London will remember. It's always worth travelling to Canary Wharf even if you're here for leisure and not for business. It's quiet at weekends. This is one of the only tube stations where people self-queue at each door for the train, I find people here are much more polite and organised than other stations where they push through rather than let you off first. The station itself is cavernous, and when I'm not in a hurry - like it's rush hour and I don't wanna squash myself into a train, there is a film playing on the upper level all day. Read more...

Old Spitalfields Market

There is *always* some market happening here. What's good about this venue is that being indoor, it's all year round, dry, and has a big selection or proper (chain) restaurants inside so it's really compatible with the London climate. The market traders are high quality and there is some decent stuff if you're prepared to pay for it! Read more...

White's Grounds Skate Park

Not sure how the place operates but seems to be well used by both skateboards and people doing photo shoots alike. Maybe more photo shoots, but it does have an interesting look about it. It's all dark and locked up in the evening. Read more...

The View from The Shard

Yes so the views are stunning without having to go in a helicopter. Pick the right time and the place is very quiet which is a big bonus. Then again, there is plenty of space to move around even when it's busy. Not many people seem to realize that you can stay as long as you like and instead think it's just hour long slots - so people tend to leave. But I recommend staying longer and watching the sunset. If you go around the you get all the bonuses of seeing London during the daytime, at twilight with the purple orange sky, then in the evening with all the other skyscrapers of the city with the twinkling office lights. Remember that The Monument just across the river also offers stunning views for just £5. Read more...
