If you love the buzz… LON­DON

Glamour (South Africa) - - Travel / Pack Your Bags -

What to do

 Walk Bond Street, even if only to revel in the lux­u­ri­ous beauty of de­signer cre­ations that cost as much as a car.  Ex­plore the sen­sa­tional Tate Mod­ern, Na­tional, and Victoria and Al­bert mu­seum. And while you’re at it, have a cof­fee, too – Lon­don’s mu­seum res­tau­rants are fab­u­lous.  Eat Chi­nese, In­dian and Le­banese food – fan­tas­tic choices and the best value for money.  Lux­u­ri­ate in a land­mark bar. The clubby Dukes Bar is an ul­ti­mate.  Strike it lucky at sales time.  Revel in the in­cred­i­ble free at­trac­tions: street per­form­ers, fes­ti­vals, fairs, parks, mu­se­ums and, of course, the thrill of walk­ing this great metropo­lis.

What to buy

Book lovers, don’t miss the UK’S old­est book­shop, the mag­i­cal Hatchards. Speak­ing of magic, a Harry Pot­ter sou­venir will speak to your in­ner child. Fash­ion wise, you’ll be spoilt for choice, but do check out the huge choice of boots, scarves and coats. Vin­tage clothes and jew­ellery abound.

Take a stroll around the city like Hugh Grant and Ju­lia Roberts in Not­ting Hill.
