When it comes to showing people around, a lot of it, in pure London fashion, depends on the weather. On the rare occasion when the sun makes an appearance, I would take them to Maltby Street Market for a quick bite and the best coffee around. After that, a nice cold pint in one of the oldest pubs on the river, The Mayflower, would only be fitting. In the rain, however, the best niche thing around is taking a tour on the HMS Belfast, and treating ourselves to a nice cocktail in the nearby London Grind afterwards. Kim Kurrel
