Overlooking the river down in Shad Thames beyond Tower Bridge, the Design Museum and its Conran-run Blueprint Café make a nice little destination if you fancy a break from the shows. The ‘Design Cities’ exhibition (on now) looks at seven key cities at their creative height, while food upstairs ranges from simple beetroot salad to elaborate mains like grouse.
