Destination Spotlight – London
London is the city that beckons you back to visit. You’d think that after the London Eye and Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey and dozens of other attractions you’ve done over the first two or three visits, you’ve seen everything. Not quite; it may just be the opportunity to do something different.
Enjoy Views of London on the One New Change Roof Terrace
The London Eye is great, but can be pricey, and the queues can be long enough to discourage repeat visits. Instead, head to the Roof Terrace of One New Change, the new London shopping mall, to take in great views of St Paul’s Cathedral and the city skyline.
Partake in the Afternoon Tea – the Quintessential British Tradition
There are few things in the world as British as the Afternoon Tea, and you must try it at least once when you’re in London. But where should you go for the best experience?
According to Vogue’s guide to the best Afternoon Tea in London, Claridge’s and Rosewood are the two best hotels for Afternoon Tea: the former is more traditional, while the latter presents a more artsy, but equally delicious version.
