“On the north side of Waterloo Bridge, sitting on Aldwych, this elegant eighteenth-century landmark hosts several art exhibitions and events at a time, incorporating the Courtauld Gallery and temporary exhibitions in the Embankment Galleries. Hell, even the courtyard (once an Inland Revenue car park) makes itself useful, with the ice rink in winter, fountains in summer and alfresco cinema and live music seasons too. ”

“Tom's Kitchen at Westferry Circus, E14 - The fantastic chef Tom Aitkens of Somerset House has opened a branch at Canary Wharf. A great place for breakfast or in fact, any meal. Takeaways are available too. Why not have a bite to eat and then wonder across to Westferry Circus Park to take a photo of the landmark London views or take the lift down to catch a ferry to Greenwich or Central London with your beautifully packaged Tom's deli items?”
