ree en s scaŐ– caŐ–old site 2 Tower Green

In-depth features on all the unmissable sights

The Tower is in fact a castle, and not towerlike at all and has been the property (and sometime London residence) of the monarch since it was begun during the reign of William the Conqueror (1066–87). By far the best preserved medieval castle in London, it’s one of the capital’s four Unesco World Heritage Sites (the others are Westminster Abbey, Kew Gardens and Maritime Greenwich), and will fascinate anyone with any interest at all in history, the monarchy and warfare.

Photos and illustrations bring places to life

1 St Peter ad Vincula

The Chapel Royal of St Peter ad Vincula (St Peter in Chains) is a rare example of ecclesiastical Tudor architecture and the burial place of many of those beheaded on the scaÏold nearby. Look out for the graves of Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard, Jane Grey (queen for just nine days) and Thomas More, killed for opposing Henry VIII’s religious changes. The impressive monument in the sanctuary is to Sir Richard Blount, the lieutenant of the tower present at many of the executions. The beautiful carvings on the church’s organ are by Grinling Gibbons, the famous

THE CEREMONY OF THE KEYS For those interested in the obscure ritual and ceremony of the British monarchy, the Key Ceremony takes place every evening at 9.30pm. This elaborate locking of the main gates of the Tower has happened every day without fail for more than 600 years. Even when a bomb hit the Tower of London during the Blitz, the ceremony was only delayed by 30 minutes, which everyone agrees is the essence of the famed stiŐ– Ő– upper lip. Entry to the ceremony is free but you have to apply for tickets by post as demand is so high. See the website for details.

TOP SIGHTS T H E B RI T I S H M U S EU M

The absolute kernel of London with a history as bleak and bloody as it is fascinating, the Tower of London should be first on anyone’s list of London’s sights. Despite ever-growing ticket prices and the hordes of tourists that descend here in the summer months, this is one of those rare pleasures: somewhere worth the hype. Throughout the ages, murder and political skulduggery have reigned as much as kings and queens, so tales of imprisonment and executions will pepper your trail.

Vegetarian Dining If you’re vegetarian or vegan you’ve come to the right place. There may be a resurgence of meat-oriented restaurants opening all the time but there are still few cities where nonmeat eaters have so much choice. At the most basic level every pub and restaurant will have a couple of vegetarian options (not necessarily vegan) which run from dull vegetable lasagnes to surprisingly innovative dishes. Dedicated places like those listed below will win over even the biggest steak eater with original cooking and not a nut roast in sight.

Food Markets The boom in London’s eating scene has extended to its markets. Borough Market (the city’s oldest; Thursday to Saturday; p000) started out as a wholesale fruit and veg sellers before becoming the tourist-haven it is today. Expect artisan breads and cheeses, mouthwatering cakes and pastries, and far-from-cheap prices. Spital²elds Market (Saturday and Sunday; p000) has take-away stalls serving food from around the world, while Broadway Market in Hackney is hardly the place to get your weekly groceries but does have some great snack options. Check out the busy farmers’ markets that have popped up all over the city too – London’s Farmers Markets (www.lfm.org.uk) lists the best.

the most (in)famous of the group and though his foreign ventures have met with mixed reviews, his London venues (eponymous restaurants at Claridge’s Hotel and in Chelsea) are still standard-bearers for top quality cuisine. Other big names include Jamie Oliver, whose Fifteen restaurants have trained dozens of disadvantaged young people, and Heston Blumenthal, whose mad-professorlike experiments with food (molecular gastronomy is how it’s described) have earned him plaudits from just about every food critic on the planet.

Gastro-Pubs While not so long ago, the pub was where you went for a drink, with maybe a packet of potato crisps to soak up the alcohol, the birth of the gastro-pub in the 1990s (The Eagle on Farringdon Rd was the pioneer) means today that just about every pub has full meals, ranging from bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potatoes) and a ploughman’s (cheese, bread and salad) to a host of more adventurous dishes.

Once the laughing stock of the cooking world, London got its culinary act together in the last twenty years and is now the undisputed dining capital of the UK. Whatever you fancy you’ll find it here from world famous Michelin-starred options to ethnic options from around the world (Peruvian, Georgian and Swedish are just some of the more unusual).
