Anybody visiting London should take a quiet stroll in the streets around the Science Museum. In Chelsea for example you will find contemporary art galleries rubbing shoulders with antique stalls and flea markets. The fashion-conscious are catered to here as well. Many top-name designers have set up shop in and around King´s Road. The special charm of this part of London, which with its narrow alleys and low houses seems more like a village, is a virtual invitation to take a stroll.
After an exciting day exploring the contrasting elements of London, you will probably want to climb aboard one of the city‘s red double-decker buses and take a ride to the Borough High Street. When you get there pop into the George Inn, London‘s only surviving galleried Coaching Inn. In the summer you can enjoy a pint of ale in the cobbled courtyard. In the winter you‘ll find it more comfortable to sit inside in one of the several bars in front of a typically English open fireplace.
