In London for the Royal Wedding? Gwyneth Paltrow's Got Some Travel Tips

Need some advice for your trip abroad? GOOP comes to your rescue

In London for the royal wedding? Need some advice on the best places to eat, see and do some of the coolest things? Lucky for you, Gwyneth Paltrow, who lives in London with her family during the school year, has compiled her suggestions for such a trip in her newest GOOP newsletter.

Here are some of her recommendations, which -- even if you're not headed to London anytime soon -- are fun to look at. Because hey, a commoner marrying royalty is like a fairytale, and we all can dream can't we? 

Best places to stake out a picnic spot to watch the royal wedding on big screens: St. James Park, Green Park and Hyde Park.

Best places to pick up picnic foods: Nonna's, an Italian deli connected to Gordon Ramsay's York & Albany, for picnic nibbles, pizza, salads and treats; Daylesford Organics, for breads, cheeses and organic produce; The Natural Kitchen for bread, organic groceries, butcher, cheeses, salads and chicken sausages; and Albion at Boundary for fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, toad in the hole, sandwiches, bread, artisan jams and spreads, and "the best brownies (hard on the outside, fudgy on the inside) going around."

Best places to stay: St. John Hotel, The Zetter Townhouse and Boundary.

Best restaurants: Trullo for small plates of "delicious, super-seasonal Italian food"; Caravan for coffee, big brunches, salads and meals; and Koya, for authentic Japanese noodles in broth that is "the perfect hearty comfort food."

Best drinks: 69 Colebrooke Row, where "resident mixologist, Tony Conigliaro literally concocts his recipes in a science lab above the bar. So you’ll definitely be enjoying flavors you’ve never encountered before"; Nightjar, which is "like a true jazz-age bar with some stiff, old-fashioned drinks."

Best shopping: Present, for men's sneakers, jeans and plaid button-downs shirts; Lucy in Disguise for vintage finds from around the globe.

Have fun, and don't forget an umbrella!
