Thorntons - independant chain

or nip into Harrods and see what they say is best ( they would probably tell you the most expensive ones though)

chocolate is a matter od personal taste IMHO

Cadburys is my favourite but then you have Green and Blacks, Thorntons, hotel chocolat and many more!

Duty Free shops tend to sell ridiculously expensive poncy chocolates or else those huge Toblerone things.
If you can get to a high street then there is often a "Hotel Chocolat" whichh, again , sells high-quality chocolates.
The "normal" chocolate for the UK is Cadburys, Galaxy, Terrys, etc.
Cadburys Dairy Milk is the lighter Milk chocolate - Cadburys do a range of different flavours and candy bars but one more unusual gift would be a block of "Bournville" - a sharper, slightly bitter dark chocolate.
Then, there are Terrys Chocolate Oranges which make nice gifts. Galxy do chocolate bars - milk chocolate - plus bars with nuts etc.

Cadbury's would be my personal choice.

But the chains "Thornton's" and the "Hotel Chocolat" are certainly tempting. (& the latter always seems to hand out free samples !)

Re: best chocolate in london

I always seem to find Thorntons full of Belgian chocolates!

If your kids are crazy for chocolate, Terry's chocolate orange now comes with space dust inside, so when you eat/suck the chocolate you get thousands of mini explosions in your mouth.

I like Galaxy, nice and smooth.

Thorntons is an English firm but makes Belgian-style chocolates.

It is lovely chocolate.

Green & Blacks is also lovely.

Cadbury's and Terry's are standard English: very pleasant, but not quite as 'exclusive' as the others.

All chocolate is lovely, 'best' is personal. Cadbury's & Terry's are everyday for me, Thorntons and Green & Blacks are a treat.

Travel Tips for London

Red Telephone boxes

by filipdebont

The well known Red telephone boxes, I believe these boxes are part of the London pride.

I did see that at some places, these classic telephone boxes are now replaced by more modern telephone boxes, what a pity.

Serendipity

by grandmaR

One of my goals to see in London was the British Museum. After I visited the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marbles I wanted to go to one other quintessentially British section of the museum - something that I could see here better than anywhere else. I decided on Roman Britain.

It was therefore serendipitous that the museum was also having Roman days re-enactments on the day of our visit. We took advantage of the displays and they enhanced our museum experience.

Another example of serendipity was our visit to the National Gallery. I had certain pictures there I wanted to see, and we went through the National Portrait Gallery on the way. We lucked into an exhibit there on children's authors which was terrific. Horace Walpole coined the word "serendipity" in one of his 3,000 or more letters. In a letter of January 28, 1754, Walpole says that “this discovery, indeed, is almost of that kind which I call Serendipity, a very expressive word.”

Serendip was the old name for Sri Lanka. Walpole took the name from part of the title of “a silly fairy tale, called The Three Princes of Serendip: as their highnesses traveled, they were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of....”

This illustrates the beauty and flexibility of the English language, and also the essense of traveling - taking advantage of serendipity.

British Pound

by Gypsystravels

I think everyone knows that the British Pound Sterling (GBP) is the official currency in London. The pound sterling is divided into 100 pence and the denominations for coins are 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p; £1 and £2. The denominations for banknotes are £5, £10, £20 and £50, etc.

coming in Christmas or Easter

by freethinker

If coming during christmas mind that everything stops for that special day. Yoiu won't be able to find any supermarket or grossary open on the day before.Just store enough of food , water and whatever you need(medicine etc.)on the day before.Everything will remain close for the whole day so try to manage your plan according to that.
In easter too very few of the shops are open.So be prepare for that too. Transportation is ok. Though due to maintanance work in lines they often change the routes, So keep some extra time in hand while planning to go for a visit or anything. But one good point is you won't have to face the regular crowd in tube or bus or even in resturants too. you can roam in the city as long as you can. Big bus tours and city cruises are open.But no shopping.

A mark of a civilised society

by sourbugger

Do not be alarmed to see unaccompanied children on buses, trains, trams and even tubes. School buses are virtuall unheard of in London and thousands of children use public transport to get to school and home again. For the buses they don't even need a 'zip' card (a sort of junior oyster card). It is a refreshing change in thes days of an overbearing nanny state in so many other areas of life.

I'm sure many parents would not quite be ready to trust their five year old to get on a train themselves - the though of it it would certainly terrify me. It's not just for the 'school run' however..in theory they can ride the whole network whenever they like..for free...little lucky tykes. It is also a mark of the bus drivers and other staff that they can look out for the 'little people' and check they are OK.

Set against this is the law of England that states : It is an offence under section 1 of the Children and Young Persons Act 1933 to "neglect or abandon a child under the age of 16 for whom a parent or carer has responsibility", but the law gives no detail of what amounts to neglect or abandonment. It therefore is a question of degree. A journey they do every day (e.g to get to school and back) is fine, but just leaving them to 'ride the rails' would not be.

I'm sure it builds self-reliance and independence, but most kids these days seem to be transported all of 300 yds to school in a 'Chelsea tractor' ( a 4 x 4)
