From the moment the smiling doorman ushered us into the sleek, burnished lobby of the Bulgari, my sister and I felt like a couple of celebrities taking a discreet trip to the capital city. The type of luxury you get here is of a very distinct...

Museum cafes are often depressing affairs, white formica boxes where you grab a curling sandwich on your way to the next piece of tourism. But the main cafe's trio of rooms are nothing like that. Designed, respectively, by William Morris,...

My sister and I love going to the cinema, so the giant television in our room at the Bulgari Hotel was perfect. But although the 42-inch LCD screen was a thrill, it was actually the clever and thoughtful collection of DVDs that made our weekend...

On its own, the architecture of the Natural History Museum is enough of a reason to walk through its doors one afternoon. The stunning archways and staircases create a grand backdrop to equally impressive exhibits, and you could spend countless...

This has got to be one of the most, if not the most, beautiful Catholic churches I have ever set my eyes on in Great Britain. The interior is almost like something imported straight from Rome. Multiple chapels and gorgeous architecture and artwork...

A trip to London isn't complete without a visit to Harrods, the world-famous department store. What I find most fascinating though is the building itself and its interior design. Spend a little time looking beyond the items on sale and check out...

Il Bar at Bulgari Hotel takes its inspiration from Italy and France, and as a result the cocktail list is a celebration of the Mediterranean art of the aperitif. Whether you fancy a Negroni, an Aperol spritz, the bar's own take on the Martinez, or...

At the Arch Bar and Wellington Lounge in London's Park Lane Intercontinental Hotel, high tea is served without the tea. Order the Poor Man's Punch if you fancy gin and you may find you can never go back to drinking alcohol from a tumbler. Arriving...

Right at the edge of the Kensington Palace grounds lies The Orangery, a great place for tea and crumpets. The Orangery is a lofty, elegant building—all white with wall-length windows looking out on the gardens. A wide-range of wonderful teas and a...

Walking down the glamorous circular staircase from Bulgari’s bar, I felt like I was in a Busby Berkeley movie, or Grace Kelly arriving at a royal reception. I loved the clever reversal of the Rivea—in a hotel that was mutedly lit throughout, it...

One of my favorite treats on a big shopping day is lunch in the fifth-floor café of Harvey Nichols—or, as we locals call it, Harvey Nicks. It's the smartest department store in London (sorry Harrods, but you've been out-chiced) and...

Famously given the address No 1, London when it was first built on the north side of Piccadilly, the Duke of Wellington's former home is one of the few Georgian houses in London that still stands alone. From Hyde Park Corner you see it in all...
