its lovely to walk around smithfields on a sunday when its quiet and explore – its strange how tranquil parts of london become on a weekend;  but if you are there in the week, its good to visit st bartholomew the great – its a beautiful old church originating from the 12C – the cafe is open for breakfast and some evenings its open for cocktails – its very atmospheric!  i saw a spectacular theatre performance there, so keep an eye out for events that go on there.

or take a visit to the museum of st bartholomews hospital, which tells the inspiring story of one of the oldest hospitals in the world or if you are interested in surgical history, take a visit to see the old operating theatre museum at st thomas’s  in bermondsey- its one of the most unusual museums in london.

of course there are 2 great restaurants to eat there, st john and club gascon.  i havent been to club gascon, but its meant to be quite good.
