But instead of cruising late night casino channels while doing the 3am rock and roll with your bubba, why not escape with some light reading?
24 Hours London is a handy guidebook that takes you on an hour-by-hour tour through some of the capital’s coolest and quirkiest attractions.
Whether you fancy a full English breakfast (with a side order of gravestones) at the Cafe in the Crypt or want to join the Friday Night Skaters under the Duke of Wellington Arch, this book has you sorted.
Native Canadian Marsha Moore uncovers London with the fresh eyes of an expat who has lived in and explored the city for five years plus. So while some of her suggestions are obvious, many are hidden or forgotten gems.
The guide is cleverly packaged to appeal to a diverse readership, from nature-lovers to wallet-watchers. Amongst many kid-friendly tips, she puts together 24 ideas for spending sunrise to sundown around town with the whole family.
24 Hours London is a compact and surprisingly compelling version of what makes our city tick.
And that’s with no help from Jack Bauer or his signature soundtrack.
