For theatre-goers, performance junkies and film addicts, Covent Garden and the West End are only a short walk away, providing all the cinema, drama, musicals, opera and ballets you could ever wish for.

Right on your doorstep, though, is the iconic British Museum, dedicated to art, culture and the entire history of humans (they have Egyptian mummies!).

The Sir John Soane’s Museum and Library is in Sir John’s old house, which has remained untouched for 180 years. It is an utterly amazing experience, which we cannot recommend highly enough. Soane’s handmade models of Pompeii and various temples are stunning, and the Sepulchral Chamber that houses the sarcophagus of Egyptian Kind Seti is truly otherworldly. Go, visit and prepared to be blown away.

Lincoln’s Inn Fields is the largest public square in London and is a wonderful place to pass time relaxing, reading, walking or sunbathing. Once there, it feels like hectic London life is a lifetime away. There are public tennis courts and even a netball court, should you fancy shooting some nets on your lunch break.
