There is so much that makes London great – and we want to celebrate our city with you. From absorbing new culture, finding the perfect addition to your summer style, experiencing the excellent foodie scene and exploring our iconic streets, there is always something to rediscover.
Your Central London neighbourhood is home to so many unique experiences to enjoy. Gastronomes, if you’re seeking a slice of a something special, there are dining experiences ranging from Michelin star mastery to casual restaurants for a reunion with friends and family. Why not sample fresh food al fresco this summer, with restaurants such as 45 Jermyn Street, as well as Heddon Street's Sabor, and Fallow opening up outdoor seating? You can also dine at a culinary institution such as The Wolseley or sample a signature cocktail at The Ritz’s Rivoli Bar. Many more restaurants are open for business and would love your support – with takeaway options and delivery available from most, to give you a break from the cooking. Discover more here to whet your appetite.
Missed art and culture while in lockdown? Leading London art galleries have reopened their doors for you to explore artworks from internationally renowned creatives. Picasso & Paper will be on show until early August at The Royal Academy and White Cube Gallery will be showcasing Peter Schuyff until 8th August. Many more galleries are open and look forward to seeing you, with appointments required. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
If it’s fashion you’re seeking, you have definitely come to the right place. We’re home to international flagships and family-run boutiques, with brilliant brands offering every kind of style. To help tailor your experience, the likes of Church’s, Dover Street Market, Belstaff, Hugo Boss, lululemon, Hackett and BOTTLETOP are all offering personal appointments, while Kiehl’s is trialling an order-and-collect service to help simplify your shopping experience.
