Win London Goodies From House of Dorchester Chocolates & Mostly About ChocolateIt’s Lahdahn innit? From the Queen to the Routemaster bus (the original, not the new-fangled one), London is iconic. To celebrate al things London and British, the lovely folk at House of Dorchester who have been making chocolate goodies for 50 years have released some lovely London celebratory chocolates, toffees and fudge.

The House of Dorchester is probably supplying chocolate to most of the landmark buildings around the UK. Those bars you see with the name of the monument on them in large, almost triangles are from House of Dorchester. Even husband, a fussy chocolate eater, loves their chocolate orange cars and nommed one at Spring fair where the lovely folk gifted us a few bars.

The milk chocolate is, I’d gamble, a best-seller as it is quite addictive. The iconic scenes on the wrapper soon forgotten despite the hours of work that went in to them because the chocolate treat inside is what the real gift is.

In celebration of the Jubilee, House of Dorchester have released these awesome London chocolaty/toffee-y/fudgy gifts and while you *could* go and buy them at your favourite attraction and bring them home to the US or Canada or Australia as gifts, you could also WIN THEM WITH US!

That  right – those amazing folks at House of Dorchester sent me these amazing London gifts and I’m giving them all away? There is so much chocolate you could have  a party (remember to invite me 😉 )or give some as gifts or whatever. There are two money box  tins which have either fudge or toffee, a little pretend suitcase with toffee (I think) and an iconic London scene, There is the Routemaster puzzle in chocolate squares that’ll keep the kids busy for ages, a British flag of the same ilk, there is a line of purple chocs (for royalty) and a younger queen to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, two of those iconic bars, a box of filled chocolates covered in an image of the flag, a large box of chocs that make a flag (another puzzle for the kids) and a line of British flag squares of chocolate.

That, my dear readers, is a LOT of chocolate and it is all lovely iconic London  or British themed. Why not have an ‘I’m (not) a Londoner” party (depending on where you live). I have all of this myself and I have to post it myself and I know the weather is going to be an issue so I’m afraid this is for the UK only folks.

    I haven’t been to London for years, would love to go back and explore. I really enjoyed the Victoria and Albert museum the last time I went but really want to see the Tower of London. That would be so interesting

  2. Ellen says:

    My absolute favourite place in London is St Pauls. I’m not sure why it resonates so much with me, I think it has to be the images of it standing strong in the Blitz – it’s pround and strong, and I smile whenever I see it.

  3. Carol says:

    I love the Natural History Museum. Not just the exhibits but the building is also amazing with all the carvings. When my son was little and invariably up at the crack of dawn we would drive in early Sunday for a visit – no traffic, no congestion charge, and if you’re lucky free on street parking, and lots of dinosaurs.

  4. glenn hutton says:

    My favourite London place is the Tower of London. I just loved seeing the crown jewels, and hearing the history of our country…

  5. Hannah Lawrence says:

    I love Covent Garden because it is so vibrant and has so many nice eateries! It also has one of my fave restaurants, Food for Thought! Yumyum!

  6. Tracy Nixon says:

    London has some of the best free museums and I have been twice to visit some. My favourite is the Imperial War Museum, which has a truly devastating Holocaust exhibition; the National History Museum is also great.

  18. Joanne Mapp says:

    I love the Whitechapel. The victorian buildings are amazing and wandering through the back streets feels like you have been transported back in time. It’s always worth popping into the Blind Beggar for one of their delicious salt beef sandwiches too.

The last 2 visits we’ve bagged the tube and walked to where we needed to go and we saw so many lovely sites such as cute buildings, stunning statues and lovely flower beds. I’d recommend it to everyone!

  29. Lj Baker says:

    My favourite place is Postman’s Park – a secluded little spot smack bang in the middle of the busy business sector by St Paul’s. It’s an oasis of calm surrounded by chaos. Fun fact: it also appeared prominently in the film ‘Closer’ starring Jude Law and Natalie Portman.

  30. Beky Austerberry says:

    Only being to london once and didnt explore much – but i loved hamleys toy store!!

  31. Rachael farley says:

    I love St Pancras station. I love its charm and nostalgia – something that you don’t often associate with London. The Champagne and Oyster bar is also a lovely place to go for a romantic treat.

  32. Mike says:

    I took my five year old son to see Buckingham Palace during the summer, he loved it!

  33. Tracey Belcher says:

  46. Paul Kendall says:

    I work in London, and of a lunchtime on a nice day, just love standing/sitting by London Bridge looking up and down the river, at the old buildings, and the new as well from HMS Belfast, The Shard. Seeing the life of the City of London just doing its thing… Its amazing; people who never come to London should jus spend a day – they will also be amazed 🙂

  47. CAROL PATRICK says:

    I haven’t been to London for years. The last time I went I looked around Harrods, which was fantastic, and went to the Queens garden party because my son was trooping the colour.

  53. sue h says:

Just around the corner is Lords cricket Ground, I have done the tour around the ground, been in the longroom and the museum and seen the Ashes. Fab bistros and shops, nice green areas too. A very often overlooked part of London

  60. Sally Palmer says:

    Buckingham Palace without a doubt – walking down the mall and seeing the amazing fountain and standing at the gates of the Palace, makes me extremely proud.

  70. Helen Dickinson says:

    I love the London Eye. I love that you are able to see all around London and you are able to see the landmarks. It can also be a romantic place and its lovely to go up there on a nice sunny day!

  71. Mary Hutton says:

    Visited London for the first time last year, can’t wait to go back. My favourite place was Covent Gardens – loved the pubs, the shops everything!

  72. Gina says:

    My favorite place in London has to be Portobello Road, especially on a Saturday. It’s local to me and I love that even if you go there every weekend each week will be a totally different experience. I love that it is so diverse in so many ways.

  73. Lorraine Tinsley says:

    I love Madame Tussauds and Buckingham Palace, proper touristy, but they are amazing places to visit. Madame Tussauds never gets old

  74. brenda heads says:

    I love the Tower Bridge and like to walk across it when in London.

  75. shirley evans says:

  78. saffron khan says:

    My favourite place in London has to be the Tower of London. It is so iconic with so much history.

  79. says:

    The best place in London for me has to be the British Museum. It has got to be one of the very best museums in the world, with the largest and most diverse collection imaginable.

  80. Duncan says:

    My favourite place in London has to be my dad’s parents’ house in Enfield. As I grew up living in Edinburgh, the trip down to see the grandparents was a great trek, covering half the circumference of the Earth, or so it seemed, and I remember once my brother and I constructed a bridge out of pipe cleaners which bridged the gap between two rows of seats. Then the tube trip on the Piccadilly line to Oakwood, then the march from the station to the house, where the lovely welcoming couple took us in, fed my parents with tea and me and my brother with biscuits. I remember them very fondly. They died about eight years ago, not very far apart.

  81. katrina day-reilly says:

    I love the cafe that is opposite victoria station they always serve up a great breakfast to set you up for a day of sightseeing

  82. Claire Long says:

    My favourite London place is the aquarium. I don’t get to go to London often, have only been about 5 times and I’ve been to the aquarium twice.
    It’s great.
    I love the glass like floor that you can walk over above the sharks!

  83. Jazz says:

    Kings Cross St Pancras – the gorgeous statues, the hustle and bustle, the random pianos… a train station like no other!

  84. Chelsea says:

    My favourite place in London is the West End – specifically the Queen’s Theatre. I live and breathe theatre, and as my favourite show is Les Miserables, that particular theatre really feels like home to me. It is stunning inside and to witness such a masterpiece of storytelling on the stage is quite unbelievable. Every theatre in the West End I’ve been in is stunning and the atmosphere is always special, but the Queen’s Theatre will always have such a special place in my heart.

  85. Christina Brown says:

    It’s got to be Camden! 😀
    It’s quirky and fun and definitely sums up London with all it’s eccentricities and embrace of other cultures. A great place for people watching and definitely great for an evening drink and a live gig too! Make sure to get a chocolate crepe and a cup of homemade lemonade 🙂

  86. Polly davis says:

    Hang around and wait for Big Ben to chime … Very exciting

  87. Claire C says:

  89. Maxine says:

    Soho Square – such lovely old buildings and a relaxed environment to enjoy a coffee and a little lunch

  90. claire woods says:

    We recently went to London and to St Paul’s. I’m not a religious person but being inside the cathedral still made me go wow. It’s beautiful. It’s also a nice area too. We had lunch at a nice cafe. Although in London it is quiet (quieter than Oxford Street).

  91. Andrew Petrie says:

    It would have to be the Thames because I’ve been down it several times on pleasure cruisers and seen such wonderful historic things including where they used to hang people and wait for the tide to come in!!

  92. Emma Sant says:

    My favourite place is the London eye – great views and a lovely ride. 🙂

  93. nikki says:

    my favourite place in London are ALL of the Theatres- there are so many lovely ones- where you can see amazing plays with wonderful actors/dances and the like- for a FABULOUS time- try it and see!

  94. D J FREEMAN says:

    I love to walk along the Thames at dawn and dusk

  95. Kimmie Alex says:

    It’s difficult to choose as there are so many great places but I have to say my all time favourite place to visit has to be Buckingham Palace. Just the beautiful architecture is enough to gaze a in wonder.

  96. Sharon Hingley says:

    The Science Museum, there is so much to see and do and you learn something new every time you visit. My daughter now loves it too and it is always top of our visit list whenever we take a trip to London.

  97. scott holloway says:

    my fav place is parliment square, old fab buildings with the modern hussal and bussle of cars and traffic

  98. Susan Reid says:

    I would love to visit London to see the new David Bailey exhibition at The National portrait Gallery in 2014.

  99. Dawn F says:

    My fave place in London is probably Richmond Park with all the wild deers. You’d never expect such a beautiful, big and natural place right in one of the biggest cities of the world.

  100. Mary-Ann Pollard says:

    I have only visited London twice, the first time was with primary school to visit the Millennium dome, when that’s what it actually was! The second time was with Uni to see the dressage at the 2012 Olympics held at Greenwich which was a very beautiful venue.

  101. Gail Price says:

    I love the Imperial War museum, or more precisely the Peace garden. It is such a haven of calm in the otherwise manic place that is our capital city.

  102. Christine Moss says:

    The Barbican is my favourite place in London. I’ve been to some fantastic concerts over the years. Great memories!

  103. Hayley Wakenshaw says:

    A less well known gem of a museum that I could spend hours in is the Geffrye, with it’s period rooms and gardens and lovely atmosphere. geffrye museum Definitely one of my favourite spots in the big smoke.

  104. pete says:

    Greenwich – easy to get to, plenty to see and a nice undercover market too!

  105. claire griffiths says:

    my fave place is the queens theatre because it shows the best shows like les mirables and it looks really nice

  106. Alice says:

    I love Covenant Garden because of the street artists and great stall. For quieter moments I love taking a trip out to kew. For wonderful indulgence I love the Hummingbird bakery. I used to work in Nottinghill gate in my holidays as a student and that area still feels like a kind of second home.

  107. Jane Adair says:

    There are just far to many places in London to pick one favourite. As I come from a rural village in Northern Ireland, going to the ‘bright city lights’ is just awe inspiring. I love the culture from the museums and theatres, the regality of the palaces and royal houses, the architecture of the landmarks and statues, the flavours and tastes of the many restaurants, the peaceful respite of browsing the cities markets on a Sunday morning. I love the hustle and bustle of the city centre and the sights when ambling along the Thames. I relish my weekend breaks in London whether they are with my family or my best friends. Each trip offers something different and new and the experiences offer memories that we talk about for many months after. So how do you expect me to pick one place when every place ends up a favourite for it’s own reasons and memories? I just love London and all it has to offer.

  108. EVA says:

    London,my city has so many places to visit and enjoy but London eye is the one to be…after that a trip from London pier in river Thames for 1 hour totally relaxing..

  109. Veronica Lopez-Smith says:

    There are many amazing placed but my all time favourite is the Tower of London, so much history! And for a lazy weekend walking on the Southbank is the best

  110. conrad edwards says:

    I love the V&A as you can wander and be exposed to culture from th whole of the Empire, and the displays have regular special features.

  111. Regent Street for the shopping and Regents Park for walking and relaxing in. Although there are plenty more places I could choose.

  112. Jill Webb says:

    I like St Catherines dock ( how the other half live) and then walk along to the Tower of London a good day out

  113. Ian Campbell says:

    I visited London many years ago, and fondly remember visiting Madame Tussauds. I was in awe of the waxworks, which in most cases looked better than the real thing! 😉

  114. Fran Morgan says:

    The first time I went to London we went to the Globe Theatre to watch Edward II. I think that area on the bank is my favourite place in London. I’ve only been twice, I’ll be going again next month, so maybe I will find a new fave place!

  115. Lou gourley says:

    My favourite place in London is Leicester square-I like to sit outside of one of the many restaurants or bars and people watch-we can spend hours just watching the world go by. It’s been better If there’s a movie premiere happening

  116. Julz says:

    My favourite place in London is probably the Theatre District – I enjoy coming up to the city to catch a show, do a spot of shopping and tuck in to an indulgent afternoon tea. Most recently I enjoyed Chorus Line followed by High Tea at the Langham Hotel.

  117. emily omara says:

    I love Brick Lane, the shopping is so much fun – discovering vintage bargains, and the curry houses are the best in the UK.

  118. William Gould says:

    I haven’t been to London for about 10 years, but when I do go I’m always captivated by Tower Bridge. I work in Civil Engineering and marvel at the design and try to imagine how they built it!

  119. shel says:

    My favourite place in London has to be Buckingham Palace! It’s just so special and makes me very proud to be British when I see it 🙂

  120. Sarah Ramsey says:

    I love London so much but nothing beats a boat trip on the River Thames sailing past all the amazing sights, wonderful parks, fantastic architecture and just the general buzz- but it still feels so serene

  121. Charlotte Ingham says:

    I really enjoyed Madame Tussauds when I visited recently, lots to see and do! I have a waxwork model of my hand made which was good fun.

  122. Cheryll H says:

    I love Hyde Park – there’s always something going on there… I also have fond memories of it from my trip to the Olympics, we had a picnic there on our last day 🙂

  123. Linda C says:

    Street artists around the London Eye which has fantastic views

  124. Amy Beckett says:

    I love visiting London – One of the best places we visited was Pollocks toy museum so quite and interesting away from the chaos of London.

  125. Sue Harrison says:

    I love the immense variety of attractions in London. We loved the Thames lunch cruise and the London Eye. Also the tranquility of the parks after the bustle of shopping.

  126. Christopher Jones says:

    my favourite place Buckingham Palace, so many great memories and a real feeling of patriotism

  127. Brigid says:

    Colombia Road flower market – in addition to it being a great place to buy flowers and plants, there are some great foodie places. It is within walking distance from Shoreditch and open on a Sunday. Go late in the afternoon for the best bargains.

  128. Charlotte Hoskins says:

    I love the London Eye. A great chance to get up in the clouds and get the best view of the landmarks of London 🙂

  129. Judi says:

    In Rotherhithe there is a cute little church called St Mary Butts and is accompanied by the village hall which was once the mortuary. This is next to a part of the Thames referred to as Dead Mans Wharf because all the bodies would wash up there. It is a beautiful little square crammed full of history.

  130. Nicola Unsworth says:

    I’ve never visited London, but I’d love to – Harry Potter world!

  131. Diana says:

    I love the walk by the river in Greenwich, used to live there, loved walking in the evening and see all the lights of O2 and Canary Wharf also it’s was so quiet and beautiful. Oh, really miss it :}

  132. Kelly Ellen Hirst says:

    I love Covent Garden as its a great place to spend time with my little girls. They adore the shop ‘artbox’ which sells all kinds of Japanese character stationary and accessore, worth a visit if your there! It’s always fun to watch the street entertainers too 🙂

  133. Nick Hopkins says:

    It’s a tough one but maybe Regent’s Park. A relaxing place to rest.

  134. paula burnside says:

    Ive just come back from a weekend in London and we went to Buckingham palace state rooms. It was great to be able to get inside the palace and see all the fantastic rooms and memorabillia. I would definately recommend visiting the state rooms when they are open to anyone. This was the highlight of my trip to London by far.

  135. k walsh says:

    The atmosphere in Leicester Square is like none Ive experienced

  136. Ashley Beolens says:

    I guess every thing depends on when and who I am with, I used to love nights out in Camden as a teenager, I love the rainforest Cafe when I am there with my kids but I guess The Natural History museum is my favourite destination (followed by the photographers gallery).

  137. Zoe Howarth says:

    I’ve not been to London much but I always remember going to the National History museum when I was younger. At the time I think I found it a bit boring but I would really like to return and take my nearly 7 year old son to see all of the dinosaur artifacts!

  138. Chloe Shipman says:

    My favourite London place has to be the Royal Festival Hall. I love the view from the Balcony – you can see right along the Thames to the Houses of Parliament and beyond. It’s also free, with essentially the same view as the London Eye!

  139. Stephanie Whitehouse says:

    All the museums are brilliant, but I think the best of all is the Geoffrye Museum, set in old almhouses. It has a series of rooms each furnished in the style of a different century, brining to life the past in a more effective way than any I’ve encountered

  140. Tammy Tudor says:

    I love all of London but i adore convent garden especially the shopping but most of all the atmosphere 🙂

  141. Francesca Harrod says:

    Oooo, thats a hard one. Ally Pally, Victoria Park and the National Portrait gallery are probably the top three – if I had to choose one it would be the NPG as thats where I meet my boyfriend, years ago 🙂

  142. Saran Benjamin says:

    I love St Pauls Cathedral and have fond memories of counting the steps just to see if there really were the amount the staff were saying. Never ever matched the same amount

  143. Andrew Halliwell says:

    Can’t really say I have a favourite london place. Considering I lived down in bromley for 5 years a few years ago I didn’t really bother going into the city itself all that much apart from for work.

    Suppose if I must be pressed, the greenwich observatory.

  144. Luisa Lauren says:

    My favourite place in London is Hyde Park. There is so much space and greenery. It’s a really beautiful and huge park within walking distance of the hustle and bustle of the city. The last time I visited London, we took a picnic, and had a bike ride and roller skated through the park. It was a wonderful place to be able to relax after seeing all the other sights in London.

  145. Kate Griffiths says:

    I love so many different parts of London it’s hard to choose a favourite! But the foodie in me would say Borough Market – so much great food to choose from!

  146. Emily Hutchinson says:

    As a child I really loved the Science and Natural History museums. You can spend hours wandering about, there’s something interesting round every corner.

  147. Mary Ja says:

    My favourite place is St Martin in the Fields during the regular lunchtime concerts. Getting lost in some fabulous music while looking at the simple but beautiful window brings a serenity from the hustle and bustle outside.

  148. Jo Richards says:

    I love the London Eye as gives both me and the kids a brilliant view of London, especially on a clear day weatherwise

  149. tamara payne says:

    I love walking around Fortnum & Mason and looking at the amazing food.

  150. Danielle Vedmore says:

    We finally visited London two years ago for my mums 60th birthday. It was great visiting all the places we have always wanted to visit, especially Harrods and Buckingham Palace. My favourite place was walking on the embankment along the Thames looking at all the buildings. Being a real history buff it was amazing seeing all the history I have read about right in front of me. The place I we never managed to see was the Tower Of London. We just didnt have the time and I was too nice to put my foot down and demand that we go there. I wish I had now! I will managed to go again hopefully when we manage to save up for it! I ♥ London as I have the bracelet to prove!

  151. Carol Greenfield says:

    Love to walk up Burlington Arcade an only afford to window shop but its fun to pick out all the things you would buy if you won the lottery even if you don’t do it and explore how the other half live.

  152. sally rees says:

    my favourite spot in london is camden market – its such a rabbit warren of lanes and isles with more and more treasures around every corner. it has such an amazing identity of its own. we visited a really cute little cafe inside an antiques stall it was hard to work out what was for sale and what was a chair to sit on!!!

  153. kristy brown says:

    I adore London bridge on a night all lit up, walking down the banks of the Thames towards it is quite romantic (even with the kids chasing each other)

  154. lucy H says:

    The British Library – there is usually an interesting exhibition on and they ALWAYS have stunning cake in their tea shop 🙂

  155. Juanita Powers says:

    My favorite place in London is the Southbank, it is easy to get too just off the train at Waterloo and a short walk over the main road. There is always something going on that you can either walk around or sit and listen to Music, the views are amazing over looking the Thames, you can always take a little walk past the Street entertainers or even a trip on the London Eye, and to end the afternoon a nice drink and nibbles in one of the many bars. I love IT!!

  156. Antonia Rookley says:

    I love the Natural History Museum. So much to see and do, I learn something new every visit! x

  157. Eleanor Powell says:

    I love Carnaby Street, I remember my first trip there with a school friend back in the 80’s we were both Mods! OK so it wasn’t the 60’s but it still stuck with me! I went back recently and the nostagia hit me in waves!

  158. Natalie Crossan says:

    I love Picadilly circus, I find it lively and interesting – the closest the UK can get to the rush of New York City 🙂

  159. caroline says:

    It would have to be Leicester Square and the West End purely for all the fabulous entertainment and theatres. I’m a theatre-addict and I can’t get enough of musicals so that’s my place to be when in London!

  160. Kevin Bloomfield says:

    I love the Imperial war Museum. Fascinating place enjoyed by adults and children. I’m looking forward to going again now it’s been refurbished.

  161. Leslie Evans says:

    Oxford Street, So much to see and buy if I fancy, lots and lots of people to see, Etc

  162. Rich Sollick says:

    I used to live in London so have many good memories of the City, but my favourite place would be the Zoo, so much calm in such a busy place.

  163. TRACEY TOLCHARD says:

    My favourite place in london is the South Bank of the River Thames as it’s where my husband and I got together 15 years ago!

  164. clare d says:

    i the theatres or the night life! i like the quirky markets and the boutique shops ive only ever been once and would love to go again to see more of it all!

  165. Kelly Hooper says:

    I love Hamley’s, as the first time I went to london was when I was 15 on the train by myself and I bought the most gorgeous chess set from there which 17 years later is still in perfect condition and now played with by my son.

  166. LINDA DRURY says:

    The Embankment at night is my favourite place, particularly in Autumn and Winter. Walking along the river from the national Theatre is so romantic. I also had one of the most heart-stopping kisses of my life on Waterloo Bridge when I was a student years ago, so that holds very dear memories.

  167. Ashli Robertson says:

    Harrods is by far my favourite place in London, you can’t quite get the same atmosphere anywhere else! x

  168. Emma Smith says:

    I love being on a boat on the Thames – there’s nothing better. You’re on a relaxing boat being able to see many of London’s magnificent sites.

  169. Rebecca Fitzgibbons says:

    I lOVE Hyde Park.
    It may seem like an obvious option but I love so much about it.
    You can go to speakers corner or get an ice cream. You can relax by the Serpentine or go out on a boat.
    There is always something going on!

  170. Valerie B says:

    My favourite place in London is Kew Gardens. It is not free to visit, but for a small entrance fee you can enjoy beautifully maintained gardens. It’s great in the winter as you can spend time in the heated greenhouses, and they have some great cafes and restaurants.

  171. Rosemary Sheehan says:

    I have always liked Hyde Park because of its history and the different events that go on. My first time was when I was a student on a march in the 80’s.

    London Zoo Ever since i was a child i have loved going there many times, to see the many and varied animals. Not just to see them but to learn about them, especially the endangered ones.

  175. Tanja says:

    The V&A. It’s an amazing museum that always surprises. It hosts a great Friday late nights, their cafe is lovely and it has the best museum shop i have ever been in.

  176. Louise says:

    Mine has to be the Natural History Museum, I think the Central Hall is amazing!

    I haven’t been to London in years, but found the Tower of London well worth the visit. Also when I last visited I really loved the atmosphere of Covent Garden.

  179. Emma Howard says:

    I haven’t been to London for a few years now but I have always loved the Science Museum. I think it’s fascinating and can wander around there for hours.

  180. Melanie King says:

    I love The Hard Rock Cafe as not only does it have my favourite pulled chicken burger to eat but so many great rock items to see, the vault is an interesting little place downstairs with extra facts from your guide and its always cool to buy a souvenir from the Hard Rock shop across the road!

  181. jen louise jackson says:

    I love the London Dungeons – i used to go with my Gran as a child

    Covent Garden is my favourite, especially around Christmas. After we’ve shopped and taken in the atmosphere we love to sit al fresco and listen to the buskers.

    I love the London Eye, it’s so peaceful up there and the view is magnificent.

  193. Christine Johnson says:

    Tower of London with all its history, if walls could talk, bet it could tell a few tales

  194. Melody Williams says:

    Well to be honest, I hate London! My father is from Mauritius (A beautiful island in the Indian Ocean) and my mother Ireland. London is a sad, dark place where nobody greets anyone except in rudeness and it’s dirty and full of crime, I feel sad to live here 🙁

  195. Janet Rumley says:

    My favourite place is a family trip to the London Wetlands Trust at Barnes; its a real relaxing day out which my daughter and her little cousins enjoy the freedom to explore.

    I love Buckingham Palace, there’s so much history, if those walls could talk!!

  200. Diane says:

    I love all of the riverside places but especially the south bank and along to the Tate Modern. There is always loads going on there, you can see all the iconic buildings of London, lots of nice places to eat. Also, I once saw the actor James McAvoy which made the most gorgeous scenery of all!

  201. Deborah Wheeler says:

    My favourite place is China Town for the food and the atmosphere around there and the theatres at night

  202. Wendy Tolhurst says:
