London

London Capital Club

Le Gavroche
The Roux family's historic Mayfair institution is guaranteed to impress.
Savile Row
Selfridges
Ronnie Scott’s
This London landmark may have undergone a £2-million reinvention, but that's not to say it's lost any of the old-school charm that's made it such a classic on the London club scene.
The Troubadour Cafe
With arguably the best burger in town on its menu, it's hardly surprising that the Troubadour Café is wildly popular with Kensington's cool kids. Live music and the occasional appearance of Keira Knightley add to its cachet. yEventWat
Sweetings
Great Queen Street
Nightjar
If you long for the days of sharp suits, slick whisky cocktails and live jazz music, Nightjar is just the glamorous time warp you will enjoy.
Cafe Godiva
Tucked away within Harrods, Cafe Godiva is perfectly positioned for chocoholics looking to take a break from shopping. Exquisite chocolates, signature drinks and melting fondues await...
Trunk

Barbour
The uniform of horsey royals, Barbour, comes to London to tempt the 'Chelsea Farmers' and festival goers through its doors.

Lomography Gallery Store
The future's analogue at the oh-so-cool Lomography UK, who run training workshops and London walkabouts for you to test-drive their film cameras.
Tiffany & Co
Tiffany's. Need we say more?
Mackintosh
Mackintosh is a household name, and has been for over a century. The flagship store brings to mind that bygone era with traditional design and very British decor.
Cabbages & Frocks Market
A global conglomeration of flavours amongst vehemently British antiques and homeware stalls, making for an exciting spree.
The Gathering Goddess
An beautifully selected clothes, an uncompromising attitude to authenticity and an in-house tailor makes The Gathering Goddess one of the most wonderfully unique vintage stores in London.
