Hi. I'm considering a short mid-week trip to London from Israel with a couple of my older daughters. It would be a 1st trip for us all. Ideally I'd want to see a show in the West End, visit Harry Potter World and see the crown jewels. Is this a feasible itinerary? Any other must-see's? Where would be a reasonably priced place to stay that would be easy for us transportation and kosher food wise? All advice that can help me plan this is appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds so lovely!

Mstay Hotel in Golders Green is a fairly new budget hotel right in the middle of the kosher shops and restaurants. Also a 10 minute walk to Golders Green underground station. I don’t know if they provide a kosher breakfast or not, but the restaurant Soyo is a 3 minute walk away and they do a divine breakfast! It’s on the way to the tube too! There are a load of other restaurants around there as well.

Or there is the Pillar Hotel in Hendon which is kosher but definitely more ££. It’s a 10/15 minute walk from Hendon Central underground station. There are kosher shops and restaurants further up the road - a 5 minute walk.

You can get to Central London very easily via the tube (what we call the underground train!) I am not sure how you get to the Harry Potter experience, but again if via tube then super easy from either location. I’m sure you could fit even more into your time here if coming for a few days.

Have an amazing time- not warm here yet so don’t put away your warm clothes if coming soon!

All sounds perfectly feasible and you could probably fit more things in too!

Golders Green is a great location for Kosher food and transport links.

Ive heard good reviews on MStay hotel on Golders Green Road.

Welcome to London! 🇬🇧

Back in the day when London was only a 1 hour flight away, I used to looove going shopping on Oxford Street (Primark, of course, is a MUST!) I wasn't so interested in touristy things, perhaps UK imas can help

I would definitely stay in Golders Green or Hendon. So much easier foodwise.

I would think you need at least 2 full days to do those things, more if you want to go shopping, and general wondering around. Although I have never been to Harry Potter world I am guessing it is a full day thing.

Careful which airport you fly into. Factor in cost and time of getting to and from airports.

The one kosher restaurant in Central London - Reubens in Baker Street - has just closed.

(There is hechshered food available at the kosher counter in Selfridges).
