London is a city of diversity. A major settlement for over two millennia, there’s a wealth of historic and cosmopolitan influence, upon everything from architecture to food. The city’s role as a bridge between mainland Europe, the USA and the rest of the world has led to an eclectic and diverse range of places to both eat and buy produce from. Indeed, there’s now so much on offer it can be hard to know where to start, and for many visitors, there’s still a real phobia about British food, let alone international gastronomy in London!
We’ve all been there – visiting London with children has its own particular challenges. Visit the Science Museum and your child will want to see the Dinosaurs next door; try the London Dungeons and they’ll want to be at the Trocadero. By Fiona Maclean
