Any traveller visiting London for the first time is in for a wonderful treat. This exciting and vibrant city has many spectacular sights and experiences to be enjoyed, with events, points of interest and night spots to suit all tastes. Those with an appreciation of all that is luxurious and opulent will find much to stimulate their senses. For first time visitors with a finely tuned palate there is a vast array of top class restaurants to try, from the in vogue pub cuisine to the high-brow gourmet restaurants.
A popular trend at the moment is to try out one of the many gastro pubs. These are no ordinary pubs, as they attract a completely different clientele. These are pubs that encapsulate old English charm but offer connoisseurs epicurean levels of cuisine. Here visitors can sample the best food with the finest wines and ales on offer in a truly traditional London pub. One of the most popular organic gastro pubs is that of the Duke of Cambridge. Dishes and wines are created from organic, seasonal food, and ales are brewed in the local area.
For something extra special, and to sample award winning cuisine, try out one of the Gordon Ramsey restaurants. Travellers will need to book well in advance, but the experience will be well worth the wait. For more fine dining opportunities seek out Mossimanns. This is an exclusive haute cuisine experience that is much more than just a meal. The overall experience sums up everything that is luxurious and decadent about London life. Gourmands also flock to the Prince of Wales, which has rooms adorned by designer names such as Bentley and Davidoff.
