For the ultimate luxury experience in London, look no further than this five star boutique hotel overlooking Kensington gardens. Guests will be treated like royalty with a complimentary chauffeur driven car and a 24 hour butler. Guest Rooms are as lavish as you would expect from a hotel of this high calibre, with private terrace, in room jacuzzi and spa as well as a whirlpool, steam shower and four poster bed. The renowned onsite restaurant is a great introduction to this incredible city or ask the knowledgeable staff for their own personal recommendations of where to drink and dine.

Set within the exclusive borough of Kensington, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous as you explore this beautiful area of central London. High Street Kensington is a haven for shopaholics, with a good mixture of high end designers and high street brands. TK MAXX is a great place to pick up some of last seasons designer bargains whilst shoe lovers will adore LK Bennett. Staying in the royal borough, visiting the palaces are a must. The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace has to be witnessed at least once by visitors but Kensington Palace is also worth a visit. Discover more about Queen Victoria, one of the palace’s most famous residents, and marvel at the luminous lace light piece in the centre which contains nearly 12,000 Swarovski crystals. The Kensington Palace Orangery is a fine place to have brunch or afternoon tea in elegant British surroundings.

For some evening entertainment, check to see the latest performances at the Royal Albert Hall. Famous for holding the annual summer Proms concert since 1941, it now hosts over 350 performances every year from classical orchestras to the famous cirque du soleil with contortionists and acrobats. For a romantic dinner, try K Town Bistro serving a small menu of international cuisine alongside well paired wines. The owner, Mr Barba, has had over 40 years experience in the restaurant industry and has served presidents and royalty from around the globe. If you’re visiting the capital over a weekend, be sure to sample England’s finest dish, the Sunday roast, at one of the traditional pubs. The Builder’s Arms in South Kensington serves up an irresistible Sunday lunch with fluffy Yorkshire puddings and lashings of gravy, and if you can fit it in the salted caramel and chocolate tart is to die for.
