INSIDER'S TIPS FOR LONDON
When it comes to the weather, London is a jack of all trades, master of none. Drizzle plays the most part, but you might also find frost, snow, hail, wind, fog and a spot of sunshine on the side. Pack jumpers and jackets you can easily remove, plus raincoats and brollies.
A weekend shopping on Oxford Street can be something of a stressful ordeal as these streets are heaving on Saturdays and Sundays, and there can sometimes be literally no space on the pavements. Think about heading over to Oxford Street around mid-morning, and preferably on a weekday. Crowds are much lower and you can easily peruse the shops at your own pace.
Sometimes it's actually quicker to walk rather than take the tube. Leicester Square to Covent Garden is less than a 3-min walk, which is quicker than going underground on the tube.
For clients travelling with children, the V&A Museum of Childhood is a must. Kids will love the vast collection of toys along with fun interactive events. The whole Museum is free for everyone.
