My husband and I will be visiting London for the first time in August, flying into LHR just after Olympic losing ceremonies. We're a fairly young couple, 30s. We like to go out, drinks, good food, wine, party, and would like to visit touristy spots such as Buckingham, London Eye, Westminster, perhaps a day trip to Stonehenge. We will be there about 4 solid days.
Can anyone recommend what part of London we should stay that is central to good food/drinks and easily accessible to main attractions? Can any recommend a good hotel/BB for $150 usd or less?
Is there a cool pub/nightclub to hit up on a Thursday or Friday night?
A good place for high tea?
A must try restaurant? Steak/seafood or traditional British faire are what we're looking for.
Where is a good shopping district? Shopping is very limited where I live, so I like to go a little crazy when I travel. :)
Thank you so much!
