This pioneering zoo is a great day out for families - stars of the place are the tigers, gorillas and penguins, but just as much fun are the Reptile House and B.U.G.S. exhibit.

Open from 5am every day (although it closes for sunset throughout the year), the park is a day out in itself at any time of the year. In spring, the Avenue Gardens bloom into formal glory; in summ... read more

The permanent collection here is fantastic -- there's a Gutenberg bible, a Magna Carta and a load of handwritten Beatles lyrics among many many other important books on display. There are original ... read more

Despite the forbidding exterior, this Japanese restaurant is good value and the real deal. The clientèle will persuade you that this is authentic Japanese food - it's really good for a local place.

Gordon Ramsey's pub-restaurant. The restaurant here doesn't get great reviews (it's good, but not good enough for the price). But the takeaway pizzas are great - 2 for £15, with a touch of Michel... read more

My favourite local place. Great neighbourhood tapas with a garden for summer (if you book). Fast service. They do all sorts of Spanish dishes, but are a great choice for vegetarians.

Discount supermarket is good for unbranded essentials and is fantastic for beer and wine. Much cheaper than Sainsburys if you can bear waiting in a long line at the checkout.

Huge supermarket. Worth getting the bus here and stocking up if you're staying for any length of time -- it's cheaper than the small supermarkets (except for Lidl) and has the full range of goods y... read more

Fans of Sherlock (the BBC version starring Benedict Cumberbatch) will recognise North Gower Street -- it stands in for Baker St in the show. Sherlock lives above Speedys, so why not pop in for a sa... read more

This is a real Portuguese deli - you get the best custard tarts, great Douro wines and friendly service, especially if you get into a discussion about the merits of Portuguese wine regions. Good fo... read more

A Japanese take on Mediterranean tapas, served in a Camden basement... you probably just need to try it. Small dishes, confusingly mixed-up cuisine, deliberately undescriptive menu. But try the squ... read more
