London visit

I may be going up to london with my friend just to spend some time together, we were planning to do the whole day in loads of places - chinatown, oxford street, westfield, portobello market.
Does anyone recommend any cool food shops, clothing or just genuinely cool areas - that are affordable. Because with so many choices around, we dont know where to start even though we visit so often.

Camden Town can be pretty cool! Also around Tottenham Court Road

China town is pretty fun - all the food places serve the same food so if you plan to eat at a buffet either go to whichever one has the most Chinese customers or whichever is cheapest.

Pop Boutique is quite a nice shop in Covent gardens. They sell second hand clothes.

I always find Oxford Street too busy and very expensive. Camden has been rather boring since COVID, but the food vendors are quite nice - though the selection of food is overwhelming.

I would suggest going to some of the museums as they are good fun. Especially if its a rainy day.

God's own junkyard is quite cool.

There is a few locations - but My Old Dutch serves the best Dutch style pancakes in London.
