- After visiting The Victoria & Albert Museum, don`t forget to have a cup of coffee in the museum’s café. It was the first snack-bar in the museum that opened over 100 years ago. The interior is greatly impressive, especially during Christmas time with probably the most beautiful Christmas tree in London!
- If you are a music lover, The Rock`n`Roll London tour is totally recommended for you! On this tour I saw the private pub where all famous British bands had their own table, the gallery where John Lennon and Yoko Ono met each other, the Trident studios in Soho district where world famous songs were recorded, the roof where The Beatles performed for the last time altogether and many other memorable places.
