    We were in England this summer for a business/pleasure trip and spent a few days in London. Our hotel was on The Strand, just below Covent Garden. IMO a great location, although I think the area may be considered square/touristy/not-hip by younger, more trendy folks. Nearby pubs I enjoyed: the Nell Gwynne, the Seven Stars (over behind the Courts of Justice), Gordon's Wine Bar, and the Lamb & Flag. These are all more in the nature of old-style/historic/traditional pubs rather than what is hot & au courant. There are a bunch of old historic restaurants in the area (Rules, Simpson's, J. Sheekey, etc.) as well as a couple of neat little churches: the Queen's Chapel of the Savoy, St. Mary-le-Strand, the RAF church St. Clement Danes. St. Martin-in-the-Fields is right there, along with Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus & Leicester Square. Somerset House has some nice art; The National Gallery, and the shops on Jermyn Street are just a stone's throw away; a quick walk across Waterloo Bridge brings over to the South Bank....
