Samuel Johnson stated over two centuries ago that, ‘by seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show’. The City has certainly changed since then with innovation, destruction and regeneration that would certainly impress Johnson. Skyscrapers, such as The Gherkin, the Leadenhall Building and Tower 42, now loom over the landmarks, gardens and life below. But while these buildings lend themselves to bars and restaurants, sometimes the best fun can be had at the lower levels.

If dancing is your thing, you’ll want to head over to Amber. From salsa and bachata to kizomba, you can learn how to strut your stuff. When you’re well and truly danced out, you can have a well-earned drink at the bar or relax on the comfy sofas while music wafts the air. We recommend Sushisamba for dinner. With sumptuous Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine alongside live entertainment, such as fully decked-out carnival dancers and drummers, they serve up a show that’s as good as their starters. For the Japanese enthusiasts amongst you, you can learn how to create maki sushi and enjoy saké tasting with their Executive Sushi Chef and Saké Sommelier. Kanpai! When wanting a more relaxed night out however, head to The Barbican for theatre, art, dance, music and film.

St Paul’s Cathedral is definitely a worthwhile visit, if just for the architecture. Christopher Wren combined English Baroque with renaissance flair to build something quite spectacular. Within the cathedral, you can walk along The Nave, where breath-taking design and artwork surround the visitor. In the Whispering Gallery, the acoustic excellence means you can hear a whisper from over 100 feet away—so it’s probably not the best place to gossip. For more history, check out the Museum of London. From London before it was built to the London we all know and love today, the museum’s galleries take an in-depth look and feature real-life clothing, tools and other amazing collections from each time-period.

We know The City will continue to modernise and revolutionise and continue on its fast-paced historical and financial district with LiFE at its centre.
