In many other countries the best restaurants are often found in a good quality hotel; in London you have a lot of restaurants out of hotels in areas like Mayfair and Soho.

Mission to the science museum My parents came down for the weekend. While my Mam was content to chill out and do some knitting whilst listening to Daniel O’Donnell slaughtering country and western standards, my Dad and I were at a loss for something to do.
