Visitors should take the opportunity to explore Earl's Court. Perhaps take lunch at the Troubador, the wonderfully charismatic café that once hosted performances from Bob Dylan and still looks every inch the 1950s Beat hang-out it once was. The Troubadour is located close to Brompton Cemetery, one of London's ‘Magnificent Seven' Victorian cemeteries, rambling and overgrown and filled with beautiful ornate memorials. You could also visit the excellent As Greek As It Gets restaurant, an excellent Green tavern on Earl's Court Road, or Garnier, which is almost opposite and offers classic bistro cooking.
