Boasting a slew of museums, historic landmarks and friendly pubs where you’re bound to bond with a fellow traveler or local, London is ideal for the solo traveler. Wander through the energetic Piccadilly Circus theater area and you’ll never feel alone.

Reviews / Restaurant

The oldest restaurant in London has been running since 1798, and it’s still going strong.

Chefs serve traditional English food in rarefied surroundings in the center of London, and it feels a little like stepping back in time. It’s a great spot for a treat meal or even just a cocktail at the newly opened cocktail bar.

If you want to stick with the specialties of the house, order some game. Crown of pheasant or jugged hare are perennial favorites, while roast red leg partridge gets rave reviews, too. There is also an extensive wine list, as you would expect at an establishment of this caliber, with bottles ranging from around $35 into the hundreds.

The service is fantastic and the setting is truly spectacular. It comes at a price, of course, but Rules is the kind of place you have to experience at least once in your life.

Ordering á la carte, you can expect to pay around $80 person for two courses with wine. It’s certainly out of reach of a backpacker budget, unless you save up, but if you’re celebrating a special occasion then Rules will really provide an experience to remember for years to come.
