Look more closely and you can find an abundance of Swedish things to do in London - from restaurants to pubs, from the arts to social gatherings.

In fact Swedish cuisine even seems to be in vogue in London at the moment and Scandinavian food and drink sales in the UK have risen by 30 percent in the past five years.

Why not sit back, grab a coffee and a kanelbulle, and set off on the top ten Swedish things to do in London.
