Burgess Park is the perfect place to chill out with picnic grub

Looking for the best things to do in Elephant and Castle? You’ve come to the right place. If you need to sun-worship, check out Burgess Park because it’s only a 15-minute walk from the hostel. You’re bound to find the perfect spot for a picnic because it’s one of London’s biggest parks! So head down to Burgess Park Cafe and get your picnic grub. You have to try their muffin with bacon, avocado and a fried egg – It’s the best! Or maybe you want to get back at your friends with a few games of tennis. You can also do fishing and hope to catch the biggest fish in the capital after visiting the Imperial War Museum.
Mercato Metropolitano has become the must-visit spot in Elephant and Castle. Walk 10-minutes from the hostel and you’ll find an outdoor-covered food hall serving from Mexican tacos and Turkish Kebabs. Here’s a tip – buy some of your favourite bites and take them with you to chill and feast at Burgess Park with your friends. Mercato Metropolitano also has a moving picture cinema showing the latest films. Now you don’t have to miss out on your favourite flick because you’re on holiday.
End your night by taking a 10min uber to the infamous Ministry of Sound. Expect to have one of the biggest nights out London has to offer! The DJ’s spin a variety of electronic and dance genres from house, techno and trance. If you want the best experience, check out what goes on each night at this venue.
