Camden Markets
What you will need: a lot of time and a large shopping bag. Because, as the name suggests, the Camden Markets are several markets, all at one site at the Camden district. And if you really want to know: the Camden Markets is the largest marketplace in Great Britain, with more than 100,000 visitors each weekend.   If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle, you can also pass by on weekdays and study what's offered in a more relaxed atmosphere. You will find anything from didgeridoos to bananas, inside in the market hall or open-air, and sometimes at the bazaar. Clothes, shoes, antiques, or souvenirs: It is not possible to list everything you can buy here. But, to name just one example, you will even find a Goth Guide here, showing gloomy visitors the way to the befitting tattoo and record stores or the perfect black coat.   If you are more inclined to the bright sides of life, you will also find the right stuff: petticoats for fans of yesteryear, cyber wear for the people of tomorrow, Doc Martens for the sure-footed and sexy underwear for a self-assured appearance in the bedroom. You name it - the Camden Markets will fulfil any special wish you have.

Babylon
The English love their gardens. No wonder because there's little effort and garden hoses are unnecessary. The result is the most beautiful uncontrolled growth no matter what comes out from the ground. The Rooftop Gardens, a fantastic example of English Garden design, is not only home to narcissuses, crocuses and lavender but also to a few ducks, fish as well as Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks.   The four flamingos have always been there, they are life-time VIPs causing the envy of the few visitors. It's not easy to see the gardens as they are used for private functions most of the time. But if you are lucky and no celeb is throwing his birthday party in paradise at the moment, you can go inside - just call! But there is a simpler way as well: Have lunch or dinner at Babylon which offers a view of the gardens. It's even better, to be true, as apart from the fantastic vista you also get the best modern-day British cuisine.   The interior designer could have spared his efforts because what you can see outside would be more than enough. However, he was ambitious enough to compete with nature and created an interior equivalent with patterned wallpapers, natural materials and green chairs inside.

Town Hall Hotel
Apartments have advantages: You can cook yourself and save money on expensive restaurants plus you have more rather than limited space. But what if you are in the mood for service, spa or the attentive waiter anyway? Then you should check into the Town Hall as the hotel is both hotel and holiday apartment, offering the best of both: a restaurant, for instance, or even a Personal Trainer at the gym.   Design is not an issue here - there are so many styles, you won't find a favourite. The building is Art Deco, the pool is white marble, and the interior is Vintage, i.e. brown sofa with wooden feet of granny's era. But then you will be surprised by the ultra-modern bath in the glass cube with curtain. While the blend is bold, everything matches in the end, ranging from ancient hall to chic design hotel. That has its price - despite the little interesting, somewhat remote location: One apartment from 380 Euros per night.

Thamse
A cold period, a lot of dirt and a Giant Ferris Wheel: the Thames has seen a lot. In the 17th century the Thames was frozen most of the time and people went ice-curling and sledging on it. With the onset of the thaw period the focus shifted onto coal: The 18th century marked the era of trade ships, providing the Empire with coal and wealth. But doom was inevitable: The biggest maritime disaster in English history happened here as well, when a pleasure boat collided with a cargo ship and 640 people died. The river was in a bad shape back then: Due to misrouted sewage even the Parliament hat to move out because Westminster - and the whole town - was reeking. Today, when sewers and filter systems get rid of the dirt, the Thames is one of the cleanest rivers once again.   And probably the whale that got lost in it in 2006 thought the same - even if he didn't find the way back to the sea again anyway. You see: A walk along the Thames is worthwhile. It's not just any river but one that defied the cold, the dirt and an inconvincible whale. And the buildings on its banks - Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster or London Eye - are quite nice as well.
