Group Dinner in London/fun activities

by fwfrog

I need to schedule a group dinner in London. Any suggestions? We'll be staying across from the British Museum. Something nearby (maybe covent garden) would be great. However, if you know of something unique and fun that is further away, we'd be willing to travel. We're not looking for anything formal - fun is more important. There will be about 35 graduate college students (22 - 25 years old) from the US. All suggestions are appreciated!

Also, if you know of any fun or unique activities that our group might enjoy, please suggest! We have one space on our itinerary to fill.

Thanks!

Do you have a date for this dinner? Could make a difference to any advice offered.

Thirty-five is quite a large number for a restaurant to handle. If it's around holiday time, I think it will probably be nigh-on impossible at this point as it's a very busy time in London.

That said, I would highly advise asking for help at www.chowhound.com (UK section). The people there are really experts in this sort of thing and are usually very helpful. They know which restaurants seat how many etc.

There are restaurants with private rooms, but I am not expert enough to know which these are.

There is so much to see and do in London (I'm an American living nearby now for 6 years). Your group might enjoy the very unusual and beloved John Soane Museum. What have you scheduled so far?

What about a London walk with a guide? A few of us VT members did the guided Jack the Ripper walk in September and it was really good - have a look at

We arrive in London on January 1 and depart on January 8th. We are thinking that we will do dinner on either Jan 2 or Jan 7. We did this last year with a slightly smaller group and had no problem booking. Our dinner was at Fire and Stone in Covent Garden. We are slightly too big for their room this year.

We will probably schedule two dinners. I'm thinking Ciao Bella might be convenient for one dinner and they do have a large room. I've also heard that the restaurant at the National Theater has a nice room.

As far as tours, these are business students so many of our visits have a business theme - some do not - Wimbledon, Bank of England, London Stock Exchange, Fuller Brewery, and some company visits. We are still trying to arrange with Lloyds of London and the Olympic Development Authority. We leave the usual sites (Tower of London, Buckingham, Westminster, etc.) for the students during their free time and then I try to schedule something a little different for them. (For instance, while in France, I will take them to Champagne for the day.)

Thanks so much for the quick responses.

Try Costa Dorada, a Spanish restaurant that does a flamenco floorshow. It's near the junction of Tottenham Court road and Oxford Street, so very close to the British Museum vicinity.

Delicious wine, authentic food, not that pricey either. The flamenco dancing and singing was superb too. They cater for crowds, it's a large space and the night we were there they had at least 3 parties of 20 each. People don't start eating till around 9.

Wow - never heard of Costa Dorado ... it sounds like a fun evening. Thanks for the tip.

Travel Tips for London

Susan Allen Toth books

by rexvaughan

Before our last trip to England I ran across a book called England For All Seasons by Susan Allen Toth. She is not a travel writer in the usual sense but has a long love affair with England and this is a delightful and useful book. She covers more than London but and has wonderful, thoughtful and humorous reflections on all she encounters. It gave us some great ideas for places to visit that are not on the usual travel tip writings, plus it was a most enjoyable read. She has two others on England: England As You Like It and My Love Affair With England which I have not yet read but they are on my list. She covers everything from puddings to various gardens in a most delightful style.

by sham

walk along Oxford Street right up to the big gate of Hyde Park where they have an open exhibition of arts and paintings ( Sat and Sun mornings ).
For cheap Asian food (Malay), try the Malaysia Hall at Bryanstan Square or Nahar's Cafe at Paddington (best lontong and nasi lemak in London ) or try the Northern Indian food ( nan,dal etc) at Edgeware Road ( opp Marble Arch). Shopping and people watching in Camden Lock on Saturday or Sunday morning (reminding us of the 'flower people' in the 70's... she loves you..yeah,yeah,yeah).

Harrods
Harrods in London's Knightsbridge has gone beyond being a mere department store, and has has become a tourist destination in its own right. Tucked away in Knightsbridge, away from the main shopping area, this is the place to come to buy that chic green bag that wraps all purchases made here from a Chelsea bun to a grand piano.

You can spend days wandering the floors. There is the extensive Food Halls on the ground floor,where the rich and the famous get their groceries, the cosmetic counters, a book shop, you name it, they have it.

Christmas lights

by toonsarah

Like many towns and cities, central London’s streets are adorned with lights in the run-up to Christmas each year, although in my opinion commercial sponsorship of these has led to recent displays being less festive than in the “good old days”. Nevertheless, a trip to the West End to see the lights is an annual outing for many London families, and it marks the start of the Christmas season, and Christmas shopping frenzy, for many.

The streets that always have lights are Bond Street, Regent Street and Oxford Street, but you may find them elsewhere too. Covent Garden also always looks very pretty at this time of year. It’s the custom to invite a celebrity to switch on the lights – for instance last year the Bond Street lights were switched on by super-model Sophie Dahl, while those in Oxford Street were switched on by soul singer Leona Lewis, who performed on stage with a number of other acts to entertain the crowds.

There have been concerns in recent years that all this brightness is not very “green”, as the traditional lights use a lot of electricity. Responding to this Regent Street introduced new LED lights sponsored by Nokia: ”100% recyclable, the LEDs are far better than traditional light bulbs, requiring a fifth of the energy they do. As with all of the West End Christmas lights, the Regent Street lights are carbon offset through PURE, the first UK registered charity dedicated to combating climate change by carbon offsetting.” So you can enjoy the lights with a reasonably clear conscious!

The lights are switched on some time in November (check local press or Time Out Magazine for details) and remain until Twelfth Night, the 6th January.

Tube stations to use: Oxford Circus (Central, Bakerloo and Victoria lines), Bond Street (Central & Jubilee lines), Piccadilly Circus (Piccadilly & Bakerloo lines)
