Where to Eat and Drink in Central London

England, London Guide (B): Where to Eat and Drink in Central London

London. Wonderful to visit. Unbearable to live in. Getting from A to B takes about 2 hours, and that’s if public transport is all working according to plan – which it probably isn’t.

(You can cycle in London, of course; it’s just a bit scary.) But it’s all ok because when you’re on holiday you generally have the luxury of time (make sure you’re nowhere near the Waterloo & City line between 8 and 9 am), and you’re probably hanging out in the centre of town anyway. And by the centre, I mean places you can get to on the Circle line.
