You’ve just arrived in London and you’re wondering where to start, where to go and what to do? We know this city can be pretty daunting at times so we have already walked, talked and trawled the streets to find the best places for you to explore once you touch down in London town.
Just because the Queen lives nearby in Buckingham Palace does not mean that you can not feel like a Queen during your stay. Taste a slice of London’s culinary heritage with an afternoon of high tea at Claridge’s. Feast on warm English scones accompanied with fresh cream and jam, finger sandwiches and classic pastries and of course a little glass of bubbly. Relax and take a little time out in art deco surrounds away from the hustle and bustle of the buzzing London streets.
Have you ever wondered who designed the London phone box and where they came up with the idea of its colour and shape? And did you know that there were actually 3 different dimensions initially created? Or maybe you’re interested to know more about the man who was responsible for the design of The Bank of England? Visit the house of Sir John Soane one of England’s finest architects. His home has been left untouched at his request since his death almost 180 years ago.
Take a relaxing 20 minute stroll from the historic surroundings of the Harrington Residences to Kensington Palace to view a once off exhibition, Diana: Her Fashion Story. This exhibition showcases the outfits of Princess Diana through the years and the evolution of her iconic style. One not to be missed.
It would make no sense to stay at one of the most sought after areas in London and not visit the wealth of history right here on our doorstep at the Harrington Residences. The National History, the V&A, The Royal Albert Hall to name a few are all a stones throw away in the heart of South Kensington. Not alone that, we are swamped with an abundance of exquisite cafes and restaurants. There’s actually too much choice to name our favourite so we shall leave that one up to you…
Are you looking to live the London dream for a day? Well then you must make your way down to Harrods. Take a trip down to the glorious food hall where you will also find an array of top class food bars. An afternoon spent at the Oyster bar with a glass of champagne in one hand and an oyster in the other is one that we highly recommend. No need to shop until you drop here!
After all that we are certain that you’ll be tired and equally looking for 5 star accommodation. The Harrington Residences is the ideal location as it’s in walking distance of all the hot spots in this magical city. A true luxurious home away from home in the heart of South Kensington.
