When you’re on our bus tour, a nice thing to do is to stop off and check out some of the lovely riverside pubs throughout England’s capital city. Pubs are great, but if you’re after something a tad more special to eat in, then London is full of excellent restaurants to check out. It’s the quirky establishments we’re focussing on here, too.
Who doesn’t enjoy a dining experience like no other? We all want to create memories on our travels, which is why munching in an unusual setting appeals to so many people. Of course, these type of establishments aren’t free (are any?), but if you’re already saving money by doing a walking tour yourself or visiting one of London’s many free to visit attractions, then you might fancy treating yourself to a culinary experience as you venture around the city.
So, with that in mind, we thought we’d go through some of the quirky restaurants worth visiting in London.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Heston Blumenthal is a culinary genius, combining science and cooking to create some frankly amazing dishes. He is the sort of wacky chef who will prepare a bacon and egg ice cream for you, all while playing a game such as www.slotsheaven.com/uk/blackjack/ in an attempt to gain some inspiration for his next dish, which will undoubtedly have a crazy theme. His food is unpredictable but delicious, which is why this two Michelin-star establishment has been voted as one of the best restaurants in the world. If you’re in or around Knightsbridge, check it out.
The clue is in the name, as Circus is quite literally a circus act bonanza as you munch your way through their pan-Asian menu. Created by British designer Tom Dixon, Circus really is a unique experience as acts jump from table to table keeping guests entertained with their amazing array of tricks and stunts. It’s in the West End too, which is fitting.
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
If you’ve seen the film Forrest Gump, then you’ll know that Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is based on it. A Southern American eatery, this popular place to feast prides itself on its crustacean creations, but you can also eat a whole host of other dishes, such as steak and jambalaya. Sometimes restaurants like this can be a bit gimmicky, but Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is genuinely the real deal.
As far as beautiful, picturesque dining experiences in London go, the Rainforest Cafe is probably as good as it gets. Kids can explore the wild which features such things as waterfalls and real tropical fish, alongside its lovely menu and relaxing setting for the adults. Located right in the West End, the Rainforest Cafe is the perfect place to eat if you’re visiting London as a family. Kids are guaranteed to love it.
