Bite to eat and beverage at the Lord Aberconway
If you’re looking to destress after a grinding day at work or exploring London’s copious attractions then a pit stop at The Lord Aberconway is exactly what the doctor ordered. The traditional English pub is one of the oldest inns in London. There are many rumours that the pub is haunted by the spirits of victims in the Great Fire of London, which claimed the lives of 70 in 1666. Besides being steeped in history, the Lord Aberconway also boasts a fabulous menu, complete with all of our hearty British favourites at good value for money. Here you can tuck into mouth-watering fish and chips (scampi or haddock), toad in the whole or rib-eye steak, which all cost less than £17. The pub is also a speciality pie-house, with the pies each being served with creamy mash potato and mushy peas. Fillings include pulled lamb, Cheshire cheese and beetroot and firm favourite chicken and mushroom. A trio of mini pies are also on offer if you feel spoilt for choice. If time isn’t on your side then why not skip the food menu and indulge in alcoholic beverage. The Lord Aberconway serves an ample of drinks for you to sup on and unwind, including cask ales, cocktails and an exquisite gin selection. You name it, they’ll have it. The good news is that the 19th Century pub is located at 15 Liverpool Street, making it the perfect stop off for a pint or bite to eat before heading for your train.
Glass of champagne on top of the Gherkin
Towering 41 floors above London city, 30 St Mary Axe is one of the most recognisable skyscrapers in the whole world and gets its nickname the Gherkin from its iconic vegetable like shape. The impressive design is the work of world-renowned British architect Sir Norman Foster, which took two years to construct before completion in 2004. After opening, the unique tower quickly became the headquarters of many of the globes leading businesses including Regus, Standard Life and Ion Trading. Besides from work, you can certainly play at the Gherkin. If you’re at a loose end in the Liverpool Street area then we highly recommend a quick-trip to the Gherkin’s Iris bar, which is situated on the top few floors. Here you can take in the unapologetic panoramic views of the whole of London from three different levels. You’ll be able to feast your eyes on the Shard, St Pauls Cathedral and many more of London’s most iconic landmarks. Once you’ve finished indulging in the ultra-impressive 360 views, head back to the bar area where you’ll be able to kick back in the plush minimalist surroundings and enjoy a glass of champagne, cocktail or even a beer. The Gherkin provides the finest views of our bright light city, which you’ll certainly not forget in a long time.
