The Norman Foster designed City Hall is a must see for all budding architects in the family.

Step back in time to one of London’s oldest and most notorious prisons.

Not for the faint hearted, this grisly exhibition lets you experience life on the inside…..enter if you dare.
Louis Vuitton Maison is the multimillion pound flagship London store of this designer. Expect lots of shiny surfaces, minimalist but still sumptuous decor and polls of light illuminating the high end, if you need to ask you can’t afford it goods.
For eating out
Dans le Noir is a brilliant dining concept and one which you probably thought you would never try, but it really is a must do! Eating in the dark – yes, you heard correctly, is an experience which overloads your senses. The taste of the food is heightened by the darkness and once you get over the idea, or the giggles, it is an enjoyable if somewhat bizarre dining experience.
1920 is a trendy and hip hangout in which you can shoot pool until the small morning hours, drink all American lagers and beers and generally look very cool while doing it. With a resident DJ and original hung artworks that change every six months, the vibe in this bar is young and fresh. The basement boasts a cinema and bar as well, which plays all the latest blockbuster movies.
