    I'm meeting my old friend from the US tomorrow, she's in London for the day and I'm going to Euston to meet her at 2pm.

    She wants walking, talking and some cheap eating. Any ideas as to what direction I could head in, to show her something cool? Needn't be a tourist trap or typical landmark either, she's almost certainly had enough of those...we are kinda spoiled for choice in that London, so I'm trying to narrow it down...I'm heading back on the late train and it's looking like dry weather.

    What would you do?!

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    Lincoln Inn Fields? Little wander around there ? Not too far from Euston .

    Or The Barbican? Or a stroll around the City of London?

    The Friends Meeting House has an acceptable cafe, but there is this Home

    An American you say. A bit further afield and perfect for an American
    The Wallace Collection
    Some very famous pictures, some fine classical furniture, lots of great armour and great for afternoon tea :thumbs:

    I came to say curry on Drummond St :)

    Also the Wellcome Collection often has interesting stuff going on.

    I wanted to recommend the Bree Louise pub but I've just found is been forced to close. Such a shame.

    Wellcome Trust on Euston Rd is v. good and worth a visit.

    The Great Nepalese on Eversholt St did some cracking & good value grub when I lived there 4yrs ago... very close to Euston Stn.

    Also, the walk by the canal - Central St Martins and Camley St Nature reserve is nice.

    Wellcome is shut on a Monday, but would have been perfect!

    I like Regent's Park and the Camley Street idea for a hot soup lunch....

    There's a famously good Malaysian place in Doric Way just round corner I've always wanted to try, called Roti King. *really* basic looking but best flatbreads in town I have heard.

    Check Camley St nature reserve is open. It was closed for work when I was round that way recently. Can't remember when it was reopening. This is worth a look if you're in the area.

    The Hardy Tree

    Thanks guys for all your help! The Hardy Tree was ace...if a little puddle-strewn...the nature reserve is shut until 2019...boo! But the Nepalese was delicious, I had dahl and naan.

    Also saw Regent's Park and walked up to Camden Town for a mooch...so I did almost everything you guys suggested. .!

    Boss n sweet. :cool:
