I'm going to London in a month

Last time I was there I fell for the tourist traps and it was far too crowded.

What would you recommend for me to do this time? What restaurants and activies I wouldn't find anywhere else?

        trv hates london because it's less than 100% white. more serious reaons to dislike london is that it's overpriced and overcrowded. anyway to answer your question the only truly unique restaurants are the turkish ones in Harringay and the Indian ones in Southall. Everything else is overpriced tourist crap.

          London is a nice representative of the UK as a dead nation. 1/3rd British in your own capital, Roman, Norman, and Danish occupation of Britain was nowhere near this devastating.

        Literal trash on the streets like in India, junkies, few natives, few girls worth looking at. Consider doing day trips to nearby areas.

          Last time I was there, I didn't really notice trash in the streets but yeah I noticed the quality of women being much lower than in Paris

          >what would you recommend I do this time?
          Leave London and explore the good parts of the country. Hike the Cotswolds (lower slaughter in particular), see Canterbury, Bath, Cambridge, Arundel... Rent a car, or use your relatives' car, convince them to take the week off and join you. Fail to do this and you will have wasted yet another trip to England.

          >hike the cotsworld

          Looks stunning, I'll definitely check it out and those small cities look beautiful as well.

    Go to Manze’s in Deptford. Yeah the area is absolutely horrendous but it’s a stronghold of implicit. And tour and mash is good idgaf what the haters say there’s a reason people still eat these things. Go find out why.

        That sauce is parsley sauce and it’s quite rich and pungent. The inside of the beef pie is seasoned well with salt and one or two other things that respect the beef. Thanks for exposing that you’re clearly NOT FRICKING WHITE

          White people who have accustomed themselves to spicy & intensely flavorful foreign cuisine (like here in SEA, for instance) would have a tough time returning to bland indigenous cuisine. Parsley in a generic gravy-slurry being "quite rich and pungent", kek.

    Afternoon tea (this is the actual name of a type of lunch, not just a general "have some tea in the afternoon") in a luxury hotel, shit loads of options depending on if you want traditional, ultra luxury take on traditional, somewhere showing off the cakes they make for it.

    London Transport museum, Imperial War Museum, Churchill War Rooms.

    It sounds like a tourist trap but if you've any interest in the Harry Potter movies, the studio tour is genuinely good.

    Get the train down to Portsmouth historic Docks and see the Mary Rose and HMS Victory (being restored at the moment but you can still fully tour the ship and do a great audio tour and see one side of the ship out of the tent).

    dont listen to the hates OP
    what are you interested in doing?

    >what restaurants
    you can get literally any cusine in london, I like korean and thai places the best but to each their own
    there are also very expensive places

    >activies
    loads of raving
    hardcore, jungle, dnb all come from the uk and as such there is a scene for smaller and some larger raves

    seems to focus around brixton to new cross in the south
    and shoreditch to hackney in the north

    other things you can do is going along the embankment, the north side is more business where as the south bank has lots of random things you can do / see

    some skyscrapers have free viewing galleries

    Go to Chinatown, Chinatown bakery.
    Museums and galleries are all s tier and free.
    Rent a bike and frick about in Hyde park (protip can get food delivered to you to picnic)
    Avoid south London it's a shithole
    If you see anything happen, mind your business
    Southbank is kinda cool for tourists, visit the Tate, take a boat.
    If you get a bus at the start of the route can sit up top at front for a cheap tour.
    Avoid avoid any restaurant with tourists in
    The Nike outlet in kings cross has loads of cheap stuff if you're into that

    Avoid
    Borough market
    M and Ms
    Camden market
    Wearing expensive watch

    Just stay in Central London and pretend the rest of it doesn’t exist and you’ll have a fine time. Westminster, Covent Garden, Soho, etc. Go to Highgate Cemetery. Don’t go to Camden. Don’t be tempted to go to Whitechapel either

      >Go to Covent Garden and Highgate Cemetery

      I know what you mean but it reminds me of when I took this Nigerian billionaire's son to a nightclub on Tottenham Lane, Hornsey and he freaked out saying his dad told him not to go to Tottenham. The previous day he had told me that he went to Seven Sisters to see what was there.

          You told OP not to to Camden while recommending places within the borough of Camden. I know you meant Camden Town but it still reminded me of that incident. My Nigerian friend was told not to go to Tottenham but went to Seven Sisters because he didn't know it was in Tottenham.

    Booking a week and got recommended the Corinthia or Hotel Cafe Royal. Heard the latter has a great afternoon tea. Anyone familiar with either?

    Asking what restaurant to visit in London is just stupid. It's not like some remote village where there's only 2 places. The options are infinite. You can have any cuisine in the world. There will be thousands of good and bad restaurants near to your particular area. There's no point leaving your hotel in Brixton to go to a restaurant in Wembley because some anon recommended it. Just go outdoors and find something. Ask the hotel staff

      I agree to a point anon, but if someone is completely new and (most likely) staying around zone 1 the choices can be overwhelming

      If you have "cool" locals who can show you around, south London is unironically far better than norf and central London, if not, stick to central London and it's surrounds. Issue with norf and central London is that it closes at 11-12 so little to no good nightlife. For clubs nightlife you need to be around Brixton, Peckham etc these days. For good NORF venues, Spiritual Bar does amazing gigs and open mics and The Lexington if you want to frick some slag Zoomers.
      For escorts, look up walk ins around Soho, never go into one where a lady tries talks you in, there are also good incall escort sites houseofdivine, if you want good gangbangs go for houseofpoitier.

      Use this for Soho

    I’m interested in the Cinnamon Club in the Old Westminster Library. It serves Indian cuisine. I was curious if anyone knows of any Indian places in zone 1 that may have a cool historical theme based around the Raj? does such a place even exist?
