The good old ‘Chippy’, about the most lovable nickname one could ever dream up for a ‘fish and chip shop’ has come to epitomize the true essence of British cuisine for over a century. NO! Not because it’s calorie laden and greasy, no! We mean because it’s such a simple dish of wholesome, comfort food which (when cooked to absolute perfection) can truly feed the soul!

The humble Chippy has a long and illustrious history in London, so much so that most locals feel they are as indicative of the city as their double-decker buses and unique black cabs. A survey done just three years ago revealed that most Londoners believe a plate of fish and chips to be more iconic than either the Queen or the Beatles. Who would argue?

That’s why we believe absolutely no London visit is ever complete without a super delicious feasting from one of the city’s superlative Chippies.

Starting to salivate at the thought of a beer battered fillet of your own? Well here’s our pick of the very best Chippies in London. In making our selection we’ve prioritized freshness (both fish AND chips must be fried on demand), quality of batter (thick but not so thick that it overpowers the taste of the cod or haddock) and lack of excess grease (oily fingertips = good, grease fountain down your chin = bad).

For intrepid travelers, sightseeing doesn’t stop at sundown. Oftentimes, however, even the best guidebooks fall flat when it comes to bars, clubs and general nighttime adventuring. Especially in ever-changing cities like Amsterdam, Berlin and London, hotspots come and go, while the truly epic parties are usually one-off events. To top that off, solo travelers often wind up heading back to the hotel earlier than they’d hoped. A new app, Party with a Local, aims to solve the perennial problem of the party-starved traveler by hooking up visitors with likeminded locals. Rather than frantically searching event listings – or just giving up entirely – Party with a Local makes it easy to meet new friends and experience parts of a city you’d never see on your own.
