Where to stay?  The Library Hotel on Madison Avenue is a beautiful boutique hotel offering free breakfast, wine and cheese.  The Library is one of our favourites with rooms starting from £180 per night.


Where to shop?  Leave Fifth Avenue behind and visit the Union Square Greenmarket Farmers Market.  It runs four times a week and offers some of the freshest, most delicious food in the city.

Where to eat?  If you want a real experience, visit Ellen’s Stardust Diner.  It’s located on Broadway, but you don’t need to pay to see a show.  Singing waiters and waitresses in a retro themed 1950s diner is all the entertainment you’ll need.

Where to go out?  The rooftop bar at The Empire Hotel which later turns into a nightclub.  Ideally located between The Lincoln Centre and Central Park, the views are breath taking.

Where to visit?  For a tourist spot with a difference, try 5 Pointz.  A graffiti museum and ever changing canvas in Long Island is a very cool place to take your guests.

The real beauty of New York is that there is something there for everyone.  If you want to go on a budget, there are lots of free things to do, or if you want a once in a lifetime experience, the sky is the limit.
