London’s mix of traditional and new, and its status as both England’s capital and one of the world’s great cultural capitals, are all on display this fall. It’s less than a mile from the Landmark London hotel to the Frieze Art Fair, but you’ll travel from a grand dame of the nineteenth century to one of the most recognized events on the contemporary arts scene in that short walk. From October 14 to 17, 160 leading galleries in London and also Hong Kong, New York, Paris, and other cities gather in Regent’s Park.
Closer to the Thames, One Aldwych on the Strand is a convenient base for travelers who want to see the critics’ fall favorites on the West End with twenty theaters nearby. It’s also only a short walk over the river to Merge Bankside. The month-long event, from September 18 to October 18, combines music, art, and performances in a popular, and dazzling, cultural festival that draws the curious and cultured.
With eight members in London, The Leading Hotels of the World has the right base for your travels there this fall, whether your taste is more High Street or Hyde Park.
