Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

London

Skylight
Skylight is a happening rooftop in London's Tobacco Dock, housed in a former multi-story carpark. Head here to challenge your colleagues to a post-work game of pétanque in the summer, to go ice skating during winter or for creative cocktails with a killer view all year round.
Hampton Court Palace Festival
Every summer the Hampton Court Palace Festival brings some of big names in music to perform in the regal splendour of the palace culminating in fireworks.
London Eye
The London Eye only had planning permission for five years but since its opening in 1999 it has become England's most popular paid tourist attraction - and has been allowed to remain.
Books For Cooks
Bookshop-cum-cookery school Books for Cooks is just the thing for foodies across the capital.

Cooking is a skill for life, and with London's emphasis on good food what better way to get up to scratch than a cookery school? Opt for the best at Leith's.
Thames Rockets
Shooting down the river at 35 knots is both terrifying and exhilarating in equal measures. Thames Rockets offers water-blurred tours of the river.

Oskia Spa
This tucked away spa offers sumptuous treatments using their locally produced, all natural products.
Stag Lodge Stables
