You’ve left your bag in your hotel room, you’ve gotten over your travel tiredness and now London’s at your disposal. The only problem is that you’ve been there, done that and got the T Shirt.

Below, you can find some great places to start for an off grid London break.
The Thames Path
No one expects you to trek the entire 184 mile path along the Thames, from its source and through London, but if you’re looking for a scenic way to spend a summer day in the great outdoors, then travelling some of the inner city route from Richmond to the Thames Barrier.
Magpie & Stump
Once you’ve sampled all the great food at the Metropolis London Hyde Park restaurant and bar, it’s probably time to try somewhere new. The Magpie & Stump pub and restaurant is over 500 years old and is a great place to find some classic Pub Grub and fine wines.
Dennis Severs’ House
This unique take on “still life” art is located in Spitalfields and takes you on a journey through British history through period interiors and sound effects, taking you on a journey through the life of fictional historical Jervis family.
St. Giles-In-The-Field Church
Nicknamed The Poets Church, this 18th century gem is designed in the Palladian style but is also the site of many previous churches spanning back to the beginning of the 12th century.
