London United Kingdom

London at a glance

Why go?

It’s overtaken Paris as Europe’s most-visited city. Restaurants, shops and galleries are world class, yet retain that famous eccentricity.

Local hotspot

Once rather indistinct, Marylebone has opened up into a more characterful, accessible neighbourhood, mainly thanks to its new food offerings. We’d recommend the intimate Social Wine & Tapas on James Street, or dinner tickets for Carousel, a venue that hosts pop-ups and guest chefs from all over the world.

You probably didn’t know

London does a nice line in man-made urban beaches come summer; get sand between your toes everywhere from the South Bank to the Olympic Park.
