City Guide

Where to rest your head in London:

The Corinthia
Sleep in style at the Corinthia Hotel on Whitehall Place, set in an ideal location in the heart of the city. The hotel combines sophisticated and sumptuous interiors with stunning views of London.

QT tip: for views that will simply take your breath away, stay in the Whitehall Penthouse.

Like its sister hotel in Barcelona, the 10-storey ME hotel in London is ultra-hip and one of the cityʼs top places to stay. Make the most of your stay with a visit to the Radio Roof Bar, the perfect way to unwind after an adventurous day.

Set in the heart of Mayfair, this luxurious art deco hotel exudes class and tradition. With its exclusive, world-renowned restaurants and an amazing health club and spa, this is a hotel you won’t want to leave.

QT tip: make sure you book in for afternoon tea – a quintessentially British, and extremely delicious, way to spend your afternoon.

Where to eat and drink in London:

Fera at Claridge’s
This restaurant is a new and exciting venture for Claridge’s, in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan. Combining natural ingredients, sourced from his own farm, with impeccable technical skill, his creations will be sure to tantalise your taste buds – that is, if you can bring yourself to intrude on the beautiful presentation of each dish!

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Contemporary and innovative, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is housed inside the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. With his creative eye and passion for British ingredients, Blumenthal creates the most delectable British fare, redesigned with a 21st-century twist.

The Box Soho
This event transports its glamorous guests to a world of risqué shows where cabaret and burlesque clash recklessly. No cameras or phones are allowed. Immerse yourself in the exotic and mysterious nightlife of Soho; an A-list guest list means this club is a place to see and be seen.

What to explore while in London:

Buckingham Palace
No trip to London is complete without a visit to Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of British monarchs since 1873. Take a tour of the palace and don’t forget to check whether the yellow, red and blue standard is flying, showing that the Queen is in residence!

Tate Modern
Located in the creatively revamped Bankside Power Station, Tate Modern is the most visited modern art gallery in the world. Hosting a collection of British art from 1900 to the present day, along with international modern and contemporary art, the gallery is a must-visit during a trip to London.
