  • Great little Brixton gem! They're currently running a fantastic exhibition called "Black Sound: Black British Music's Journey of Creative Independence". Really great history of black British music. I would highly recommend it!
  • Love going to BCA never fails. Food is excellent. Exhibitions are relevant, educational and inspiring. It's a warm place for people of the Caribbean and Africa to descend and appreciate those who paved the way for us to make a difference .... honouring #DarcusHowe

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
