Hottest Places in London

London has no shortage of high quality restaurants, bars or places to go, but there are always new quirky offerings coming to the table that you don’t want to miss. Here are just a few of the places that you should visit this year:


Go back to the early 20th century, when travelling by train for pleasure was still in style. Located in Pedley Street Station, you will sit down to a sensational immersive dining experience and a menu composed by two MasterChef finalists, as they follow a tale set in the golden age of rail travel. The ‘The Murder Express’ is perfect for you and your loved ones.

Restaurant Ours?

If you have yet to find the perfect restaurant for you, make sure you take a visit to Restaurant Ours; a simple yet stand out restaurant with a spectacularly bright flower wall and a booming bass soundtrack. Decorated with huge trees and high ceilings, this upscale bar and restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious dinner and take in all the scenery.

Musical Shows

Musical theatre will always remain a hot topic in London, but these two shows are seriously worth the watch:

From the 28th January 2019 in the Savoy Theatre, the 9 to 5 musical will be telling the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to the boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Brought to you by Dolly Patron herself, this hilarious West End production is a show you cannot miss this year!

Another fantastic show to put on your watch list is Tina Turner the Musical. Due to such popular demand, they have extended their ticket sales to July 2019 and to make things even more exciting, Tina’s live shows have been seen by millions, with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in music history. So don’t leave it too late to hear some of her much loved songs, as you watch the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race.


New to London and located in a secret venue, this 90-minute cinematic adventure combines the unique world of Sherlock, with the very best of escape games. It is a definite must on your things to do this year, as not only can you explore some of Sherlock’s most iconic sets but you can get help from original cast members, including Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, in brand new, specially recorded video and audio sequences.

Chinese New Year

People all over the world come together to celebrate Chinese New Year and London is no different. Whether you have ties to the country or not, this event is a brilliant way to spend a weekend with your loved ones.

Every year a fabulous and vibrant parade goes through the heart of London to celebrate Chinese New Year. Starting at 10am, music, acrobatics, activities and pyrotechnics will fill the city's iconic West End, with a grand parade starting at Trafalgar Square and weaving its way to the centre of Chinatown.

But if you’re looking for the perfect Chinese restaurant to try, our very own Min Jiang supplies you with a fabulous nine-course banquet where you can taste some of the best Chinese cuisine in the capital. Symbolising good fortune and prosperity to give your meal that something extra special.
