24 hours in one of my favourite parts of London, we thoroughly enjoyed shooting this post! I love the mix of the old city vs the new cool cafes and restaurants, it also has a real creative buzz to it and if coming to London for a minibreak I would definitely put aside some time to visit.

WHERE TO BRUNCH
The Modern Pantry
One of my favourite places to meet for brunch or breakfast, its clean grey and white neutral decor, its boiled egg and marmite soldiers, its bonsoy milk capuccinos…
My husband actually ordered the hot cross bun bacon butty which looked possibly tastier than mine but he wouldn’t let me have a bite so that question will go unanswered.

Clerkenwell is known for its great furniture shops: Vitra and Forest London and I love EC One jewellery on Exmouth Market, but it’s Marby and Elm I wanted to talk you through – a stationery lover’s dream. I’d bought a few stationery sets in Liberty and didn’t realise they had a shop, right opposite our hotel. I love their use of typography and neon:
WHERE TO STOP FOR COFFEE
Coffee is such a thing, now, isn’t it? We’re so snobby and wouldn’t dare waste it on a poor cup now. This place is just up the road from The Zetter Townhouse (I have probably walked about 50 steps so far on this city guide) and the coffee hits just the spot.

We stayed one night complimentary at The Zetter Townhouse in order to compile this City Guide – I hope you enjoyed it.
