“Flying lovers” is a marvellous piece of theatre that suits this beautiful building. Restoration work is helping to keep it very much alive. We are only here on holiday but I would love to come back again when we are next in London. Brilliant!

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
