Top Places To Visit

The Baker Street tube station has walls painted with excerpts from the Sherlock Holmes novels and is, in itself, a place well worth a visit. Take the tube now to King's Cross. This is again a place which needs no introduction. The crowds at Platform 9 3/4 are massive and you will find queues waiting to get a photo with the trolley half mashed into the wall. Instead, walk into the Harry Potter store, and marvel at the Firebolt and the Elder Wand, indulge your inner nerd and splurge on Gryffindor jumpers. Then take the escalators to the food court upstairs, grab a bite and look over the magical place where The Boy who Lived, once took the train to Hogwarts.

Strolling onto to the neighbourhood of Stokes Croft, the amazing community that redefines public art. The residents have embraced graffiti; sporadic murals and spray paint poems, of varying quality, decorate the walls and pavements. Discover the work of Banksy tucked among the murals painted by local artists.

Nearby places to see: If you're in the area, it might also be worth checking out some other nearby Cotswold villages. Chipping Campden and Broadway are really nice places to wander around, and I've heard good things about Bourton-on-the-Water, too. You can check the local bus schedules at Travel Lines SW, although it's usually much easier to drive, if you have the option! Or, why not hire a bike in the spring? You can hire them for £15 a day atStratford Bike Hire or from £7 at the café on the Greenway - just enter the Greenway and look for the café inside an old train carriage.For those of you visiting this part of the UK for the first time, it might be worth also visiting Bibury, "the most beautiful village in England" and one used in a few films, namely Stardust and Bridget Jones's Diary!

For those who truly want to let there hair down, dance like there’s no tomorrow to indie/electro beats and enjoy a night of absolute hedonism, head to Cabaret Voltaire. ‘An Edinburgh institution..the staple of alternative music culture’ or The Caves, one of the most unique clubbing experiences I’ve had. (It also hosts wedding events due it's unusual, underground venue - a must see!).

Has a stunning setting beside a west Skye sea loch. Visitors can taste their whiskies in a vaulted barrel room, surrounded by handsome oak containers holding whisky which will sit for decades before it’s enjoyed Tasting notes ” Highly complex & unconventional whisky. Peppery flavour adds to its warming spiciness, it explodes on the palate”

Dalwhinnie is the highest distillery in Scotland; and clear, crisp spring water and peat are abundant. On the 45-minute tour, you can see the people at work making sure everything in the distillery goes to plan – whisky production is a precise process where small changes of problems can affect the taste of a whole batch. The tour with 3 tastings of their 15 year old, Distiller’s edition and single cask is priced at £12.99 per person

As part of the Lapland in London experience we had an open bar, giving us the freedom to enjoy the venue’s incredible cocktails.After we had successfully made some kind of animal-like lump of ice, we were able to throw on a parka and experience the famed ice bar itself. The tables, bar, artwork, and even the glasses were all made of solid ice! Each person is allowed any one cocktail with admission into ICEBAR, I highly recommend the Temple of the Sun tequila ice cocktail to warm up the insides. The bar is kept at a constant -5 °C (23 °F) so it is cold, but the parka and gloves you are given keep it bearable until the end. The standard visit is 40 minutes long, which is more than enough time to enjoy a drink and enjoy the unique experience. The theme of ICEBAR changes annually; the current theme ‘Frozen Architecture’ features ice carved blueprints and cityscapes, giving it a surprisingly modern feel.
