Anchored up along Albert Embankment in London, Tamesis Dock seems to be a world away from the tourist-filled centre of London. On a summer’s day, the boat’s top deck is a perfect spot for sipping on a pint whilst looking out over the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and as far as the London Eye.

Tucked away in East London, Daltson Curve Garden is an oasis for those looking to spend a few relaxing hours away from the busy streets of the city. The walled garden serves up freshly prepared meals (some ingredients picked from the garden itself) and does have a bar so you can enjoy a beer or wine as you soak up the impressive surroundings. The Garden hosts a series of events, including pizza making with the kids, live music, and workshops for those wanting to brush up on their gardening skills.

This London Underground (Tube) and 1940s-themed bar is as quirky as they come. Be welcomed at the door by the bar’s “train guard” before being taken to either a “carriage” or seating area adorned with London Tube-inspired fabric. Enjoy one of the bar’s great themed drinks, either served in a hip flask, old mug, vintage milk bottle or tin. Food-wise, the bar’s “rations” menu is packed full of tasty post-war-inspired grub.
