“MISC Selection - ALL SORTS. If you would like to stay local, Mercato Metropolitan is an Italian food market with a range of food and wine to visit, it is a short walk from the flat. (15min walk) It has many food options and a good vibe, Perfect for a group if you are unsure of what you would like to eat or cannot agree on one type of meal. ”

“Located in a former bus depot, Ministry of Sound was once the epitome of warehouse cool and is still perhaps the UK’s best-known clubbing venues: thus, any self-respecting fan of dance music in any form should visit Ministry at least once. To be honest, though, once won't be enough when you've seen the fun you can have in this gargantuan beat playground. Laid out across four dancefloors and various bars, there’s lots to explore thanks to the club's extensive refurb at the end of 2013, as well as a shift towards more underground pastures in the music programming, too.”

“Fancy a night at the theatre. Why go to the West End when you have an excellent theatre right on your doorstep which hosts both musicals and plays. Go early for a pre-theatre drink in the bar or head to Mercato Metropolitana Food Market which is just opposite.”

“This German craft brewery located inside the food hall at Mercato Metropolitana apparently prides itself on using water distillation and mineralization technology to produce its brews. The hops, malts and recipes are sourced from Steinbach Bräu, a 400-year-old Bavaria based brewery, which produces all its beer by hand. German Kraft’s drinks menu includes the Heidi Blonde lager, Hopfen Kiss pale ale and Edel Weis wheat beer. Most are served fresh out of the tank or from reusable containers to keep things sustainable. As well as seeing the brewing process in action, punters can order German-style nosh if they’re feeling peckish.”

“I helped the legendary nightclub the Ministry of Sound develop this totally new concept. They’ve converted these awesome two arches under the railway into a new studio space for mind-blowing circuit and strength training with treadmill work thrown in. And you get the best sound system in Europe and laser shows. It’s like nothing else in London. If you’re with someone who can’t be persuaded to work out, there’s a great juice bar in the next-door arch that serves healthy food but also has a full license. So if your partner wants a drink while you work out, all your bases are covered.”
