  Take time for Villiers Street
by pedersdottir

Favorite thing: Bearing the family name of the rather notorious Dukes of Buckingham, this road
connects the tube stops Embankment and Charing Cross. Running immediately east of the Thistle Charing Cross hotel, it is packed with interesting little eateries. Also houses a good pub or two.

Duck under the space-age triangle clock pictured here, and you can escape the rain while exploring shops in the cavernous arches that support the Charing Cross train station overhead.

Villiers Street provides easy access to the Victoria Embankment gardens.
