CNNGo TV in London: Top food, fresh fashion and that humble little wedding
The fascinating people and places to look forward to from London in CNNGo TV
England's capital is, of course, an artist's dream, so we kicked off our show with a stroll through Soho and a stop in the eclectic Claire de Rouen Books.
It's a treasure on the first floor of The Gallery Soho. www.clairederouenbooks.com
If you're on the hunt for fresh threads, Christian Blanken also steered us to Misan, a spot where fashionistas are able to pick up some of the city's finest fabrics.
Misan is located at 46 Great Titchfield St., just off Oxford Street.
The booming voice of Madeleine Pierard welcomed us backstage at the Royal Opera House.
We're not that special though. Anyone can book a tour via the ROH's website: www.roh.org.uk
Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London WC2E9DD England;
London is certainly not known for its hills. But one spot that does give visitors a boost is Primrose Hill, pointed out to us thanks to the cleverly named London Cabbie Al Fresco. Here's your guide:
Primrose Hill, Primrose Hill Road, London NW3 England;
Chef Tom Aikens is juggling two restaurants on the London food scene these days. He let us tag along for a morning visit to New Covent Garden, where most eateries get the freshest produce.
All are welcome, but you will need to buy in bulk. www.newcoventgardenmarket.com
New Covent Garden Market, Nine Elms Lane, London SW8 5BH England;
Begoña Cao made our heads turn, literally. The principal dancer of the English National Ballet shared her insight on her native city, and let us stay for a show.

And finally, CNN colleagues Max Foster and James Partington shared their insight on the biggest bash of the year -- the Royal Wedding. For more of CNN's coverage, head to the special section below:
