CAU. St Katharine Docks.

Enjoying such a prime Central London location, fine dining is not something that is in short supply. From Michelin starred eateries such as Jason Atherton’s City Social and Jeff Galvin’s Galvin La Chapelle to Tom’s Kitchen with its terrace overlooking St Katharine Docks, London’s only marina, The Ordnance Building is surrounded by some of the capital’s finest restaurants.

Just across Tower Bridge, at Butler's Wharf, the standards are equally high with Le Pont de la Tour and The Butlers Wharf Chop House. Then there are the eclectic array of street food specialists and restaurants available at the Truman Brewery and Spitalfields Market, which offer a more relaxed, but just as mouthwatering dining experience.

With Old Street only a stone’s throw further, you’re also spoilt for choice in terms of nightlife – from deliberately hard to find cocktail dens to bustling bars fuelled by the latest sounds. The City also boasts an array of slick cocktail bars such as Vertigo 42, which is located on the 42nd floor of the former Natwest Tower and Sky Pod Bar, at the top of the Walkie Talkie Building - both of which enjoy stunning views across London.
