Point A Hotel Shoreditch – Things to Do

There is so much to do in London that you will be spoiled for choice but here are the things we did whilst we stayed at this hotel;

Old Spitalfields Market

This is less than a 15 minute walk away from the hotel. It’s a great market and it also has some great street food. There really is something for everyone. We tried Jerk Chicken, Ethiopian vegan food, Chai, and Thai wheel-cakes. There are a variety of stalls and bench tables that you can eat at.

Old Spitalfields Market is a large covered market. It is open to the elements but covered. It is well worth a visit.

Check out all the details on the Old Spitalfields market website which gives you all the food and shopping details.

Tour of London

The integrated transport system in London makes travelling easy. Here’s what we did.

We took the Northern Line train from Moorgate and then changed to the circle line to Tower Hill. After looking around the outside of the Tower of London and admiring the river views and Tower Bridge we headed for the river bus stop beside the Tower of London.

We used our Oyster card and took the river bus to the Embankment. From there we walked to Trafalgar Square. We had lunch in the Crypt Cafe at St Martins in the Fields. St Martins in the Fields is the only place in London where you can do brass rubbing! This is a really fun activity with no need to get down on your hands and knees. The lovely people there give attach the paper to the brass that you would like to rub and off you go. It’s a great memento of London.

St Martins in the Fields uses the profits from the cafe to help homeless people in the area. The cafe is excellent too with really great salads, cakes and hot dishes. It is cafeteria style. There are toilets in the cafe too and a nice gift shop. It is easily accessible from Trafalgar Square via steps or a lift.

We walked down Whitehall, passing Big Ben and crossing over Westminster Bridge where we had amazing views of the City Centre.

Then we went inside County Hall where we enjoyed the amazing Agatha Christie production Witness for the Prosecution. This production is in the round and set in the old chamber of the Greater London Council. It’s a great story and the setting works perfectly.

County Hall is also home to the London Dungeon and the London Aquarium. Located right beside it is the London Eye.

We then took the circle line back to Moorgate from Westminster station located just at the end of the bridge.

There is no need to worry about getting an Oyster card to use the underground in London – just use any contactless payment card or device. Tap in when you go through the ticket barriers and tap out when you leave the station. It’s very easy.
