If you are in the mood for love, here's a great way to spend the day with your special someone. Take a long boat ride along Little Venice. Its landing stage is at the intersection of the Regent Canal and the Grand Union Canal. Or do something different like taking a long walk along the canal. A romantic getaway or a day out, Little Venice is the place to be.
This market dates back to the 1830s, when it only sold produce. Today the Edgware Road side sells simple everyday clothes (T-shirts, pyjamas, lingerie), DIY, and food.

Stop by the well-known Sea Shell on Lisson Grove for a one of the best fish and chips in London.

In 1928 a young Scot named Alexander Fleming made a chance discovery which was to prove one of the most significant medical advances of the last century. Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum in the archives of St Mary's Hospital sits on the actual site of the laboratory where Fleming made his discovery of penicillin. It features an exhibition, a reconstruction of his working environment and a video which narrates the extraordinary story. Amazingly, the scientific community ignored Fleming's work for more than a decade before a group of chemists in Oxford came up with a way of purifying penicillin. Fleming's perseverance eventually earned him a Nobel prize, and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Beatles' final masterpiece was recorded right here in this studio. The Fab Four loved the place so much that although some of their most notorious infighting occurred here, they decided to name the resulting album after it. The 1969 LP Abbey Road, the cover of which featured the boys crossing the street out in front of the studio, was a classics-packed triumph, and Abbey Road's epic legacy was cemented in the hearts and minds of rock aficionados forever. Today, Abbey Road Studios continues to operate as a fully functioning, top-of-the-line recording studio (and plays host to the very occasional concert event). See website for booking and online souvenirs.
