Places to Visit


Enjoy a lazy afternoon with friends and family at the second biggest conservatory in London. There’s over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees along with a wide variety of exotic fish to peruse. Regular tours of the Barbican’s tropical conservatory run throughout the day, you can find tour times and opening hours on their website.


Just a 20 minute walk away from our hotel is the museum, library, headquarters and house of Dickens. Visitors will be able to peer at where the writer worked and gain a great insight into how the Victorian population lived in London. You’ll be taken back in time as you view original Victorian furniture alongside Dickens personal belongings, paintings and writing. Costumed tours and candlelit late-openings run throughout the year which prove very popular.

SmithField Market

Smithfield Market provides a colourful link to an age when the quality of British beef was a symbol of national virility and good humour. Designed by Horace Jones, Smithfield opened for business in 1868 and early risers will still find meat and poultry (though no livestock) traders setting up their stalls at first light inside the metal structure with its ornate arched ceiling and bizarre colour scheme (white, purple, blue and green). Nowadays Smithfield is also notable for its swanky eateries, and boutique stalls.


The ‘Blood and Tears Walk’ is known for being one of the best and longest running, walking tours in London. Thousands of people from around the world have walked the chilling yet entertaining tour over the past 18 years. You may recognise guide Declan McHugh who has appeared on television and radio many a time as he wrote the best-selling book ‘Bloody London’. Throughout the tour, guests will learn about Jack the Ripper, witchcraft, executions and conspiracy theories from the 19th century.

Museum of London

Step inside the Museum of London for an unforgettable journey through the capital’s turbulent past. Get a taste for the Museum in the new 360 tour from London & Partners and hear about the Museum’s grisly collection under the rotunda with theCity Visitor Trail app. Check out the video about the Museum  from London & Partners as part of ‘The London Story’.Discover prehistoric London, see how the city changed under Romans and Saxons, wonder at medieval London and examine the tumultuous years when London was ravaged by civil wars, plague and fire.


Nestled a short stroll from us is the bustling hip areas of Shoreditch and Hoxton. Much like our cocktail bar, The Vestry, you’ll find young creatives and trendsetters frequenting the local boutique coffee shops and clubs. A creative’s hub, brick walls are plastered with bright and trendy murals are a must see.

St Paul's Cathedral

An iconic institute of London that you cannot miss. St Paul’s is a ten minute walk away from the front door of the Fox & Anchor. Steeped in history, opening in 1708, the architecture is incomparable to anything else. Walk to the top of St Paul’s to have an amazing view of the entirety of London.
