(TRAVPR.COM) BURNS NIGHT CELEBRATIONS MEAN THERE'S HAGGIS AND WHISKY GALORE IN LONDON THIS WEEKEND

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - January 23rd, 2014 - With the likes of Albannach, Boisdale, Searcys St Pancras Grand and Fortnum and Mason all holding traditional Scottish suppers, there's plenty of places for homesick Scots to celebrate Burns Night without trekking north of the border. At the suppers diners are treated to traditional Scottish dishes such as haggis, neeps and tatties, and cranachan.

Aside from the traditional dinners, there will also be a number of other ways to get a haggis fix, including haggis canap├ęs at eccentric cocktail bar Mr Fogg's, haggis burgers at both Honky Tonk branches, and sesame prawn and haggis toast at Min Jiang's humorously titled Chinese Burns. Discover more great ways to celebrate Burns Night in London on LondonTown.com, where a wide selection of London hotels can also be found.

London also hosts a number of major exhibitions this weekend, such as Behind the Mask at Somerset House. Celebrating the work of celebrity photographer Andy Gotts, the exhibition showcases photographs of A-list movie stars including Scarlett Johannson, Al Pacino and Robert de Niro. The Sunflowers exhibition opens at the National Gallery on Saturday, displaying two of Vincent van Goh's iconic Sunflower paintings, dating from 1888, alongside each other for the first time in 65 years.

While at the Royal Academy of Arts seven leading architects and urban designers provide a new perspective on architecture for Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined. The exhibition sees the gallery's main rooms transformed into a series of structures, textures, scents and lighting to encourage visitors to explore the environments and think about how their mood is affected.
