Our city and Celebrities go together like Strawberries and Cream and in these posts you will find out juicy details about the famous and infamous in London.

London, Baby! Friends in the City

Though the group lived across the pond in Manhattan, they managed to find their way into British hearts through our TV screens. In celebration of Friends’ 20 year anniversary, we’ve created an itinerary based around the famous take-thee-Rachel episode – The One With Ross’s Wedding. Start your trip by waking up at the Marriott London […]

- Royal Family -

London is home to the British Royal Family and a lot of our tourism is thanks to them and their palaces, so read on to find out more about the Windsors.

Buckingham Palace

At any time of day, you will struggle to find the front gates of Buckingham Palace empty of visitors. The exclusive building is adored by many, and while we cannot grant you access to Her Majesty’s thrones, visiting the Queen’s Gallery and the Royal Mews will get you close and will technically take you inside […]

Kensington Palace

As home to British icons and press favourites The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate and Wills, Kensington Palace has become a must-visit attraction. Though you won’t actually be standing inside their living room or peep around their bedroom door, you can visit the public half of the palace and discover the history of the […]

Hampton Court Palace

As our beloved Prince George celebrates his first birthday, we ventured out to Hampton Court Palace, the historical palace that was once a home to another royal George, as well as a Henry, a couple Charles’ and a Mary or two. Hampton Court Palace sits proudly in its beautiful Surrey location beside the River Thames. […]

Tower of London

Steeped in history, Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress stands proudly in East London along the River Thames. Though the Tower of London was founded in 1066, the castle now stands against a backdrop of modern London against the glass skyscrapers, not letting anyone forget about the city’s vast history that stretches far back into […]

- Secret London -

‘The Big Smoke’ is a huge city with such a rich history that it is easy to lose track of it all, which is why WeKnowLondon are giving you the insider info on London.

Camley Natural Park

In between King’s Cross and St. Pancras Stations lies Camley Street. If you follow it a short way, you’ll reach Camley Street Natural Park and its surprising array of wildlife. At 12 Camley Street, N1C 4PW, there is a hidden nature gem in an urban landscape that sprang from an old coal yard. The park […]

The Andaz Temple

Along from Liverpool Street Station, stands the grand Andaz Liverpool Street Hotel. It is a hotel with a few secrets. Before a facelift and rebrand, this hotel was formerly known as the Great Eastern Hotel and housed rich Victorian travellers. Abraham Van Helsing stays there in Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’. Prior to that, the site used […]

Basement Sate

Behind an anonymous frontage in Soho, sits Basement Sate, an exciting and experimental Cocktail and Dessert bar. At 8 Broadwick Street, W1F 8HN near the Agent Provocateur store, Basement Sate inhabits an underground space that resembles a mix between a wine cellar and private gentleman’s club. The darkened venue is not moody, with cool, ambient […]

- Tourist Tips -

Coming to London for the first time can be a daunting experience, which is why we prepare tips and hints to help you navigate our fascinating, sprawling city.

Camden Town

The North London home of alternative is in a league of its own. The busy streets, the clashing of music from every shop and the combined smells of street food all work in unexpected harmony to create a Camden-specific charisma. The markets are what Camden is famous for, punks and Amy Winehouse aside. You will […]

HMS Belfast

In 1938 on St Patrick’s Day, the HMS Belfast was officially launched and was shortly after commissioned into the Royal Navy. The ship went on to protect and defend from the waters, supporting troops during the D-Day landings, and even playing an active role in the Korean War. Now, the naval cruiser warship can be […]

Old Spitalfields Market

In the heart of East London lies another of London’s historic and most popular shopping destinations, Old Spitalfields Market. Unlike Brick Lane, Old Spitalfields Market is open seven days a week and is ever-changing, giving visitors and excuse to return time and time again. With two parts of the huge market all under one roof, […]

St. Paul’s Cathedral

The incredible size and intricate design of St Paul’s Cathedral is enough to leave you in awe before you even step in doors. Visitors and commuters alike find solitude and comfort just sitting in the churchyard or upon the stone steps, as they are joined by spectacular sculptures and the impressive exterior of the building […]

Kew Gardens

London is not entirely a grey concrete jungle. In actual fact, London is the greenest city of its size in the world with almost 40% of the great city being green space. So if you are new to the city and the traffic and skyscrapers are getting a bit too much for you, or if […]
