Suki Waterhouse's London City Guide

Model, actress and It Brit Suki Waterhouse tells us where to score vintage gems, designer finds and delicious pub grub.

My favorite shopping neighborhood is Primrose Hill. It has a quaint village-like feel.

When looking for vintage, I enjoy wandering around Brick Lane. The area has an amazing flea market too—I bought my first-ever vintage piece there, a Sonia Rykiel coat I adore.

The Enterprise

For traditional English food, I go to The Enterprise in South Kensington. It’s a classic. I always get the fish pie. 35 Walton St., 44-20-7584-3148,

"I love to scope out new art at the Hayward Gallery," says Waterhouse.

Cirque Le Soir

When I want to Dance, I’ll head to Cirque le Soir. Why? As I like to say, “Good things happen there.” 15–21 Ganton St., 44-20-7287-8001,

“Mary Katrantzou (a look from her collection pictured) is an up-and-coming London designer who I love.”


For a romantic dinner, I love the restaurant Ffiona’s. The owner, Ffiona, is great at vetting your dates for you! 51 Kensington Church St., 44-20-7937-4152,

Waterhouse hits the streets in her hometown.

The Holly Bush

The pub I always nip into is The Holly Bush in Hampstead. It’s cute and hidden away. It feels like you’re in the countryside. 22 Hollymount, 44-20-7435-2892,


For a truly luxe experience, you have to visit the Burberry flagship store. The historic features are beautifully mixed with high-tech elements (like over 100 TV screens). 121 Regent St., 44-20-7806-8904,
