Where do Mayfair and surrounding areas locals go?


A traditional family-run Italian restaurant where they serve the best pizza this side of Naples.

Wellington Arch

In this corner of Green Park, there's a number of memorials that remind us of Britain's rich history.

Royal Artillery Memorial

This World War I monument is very impressive, even on a cloudy day.


Breakfast, pastries and afternoon tea, this delightful restaurant is part of a small, well loved chain, where you feel right at home.

Galvin at Windows

Stunning views across Hyde Park, fantastic service, beautiful food and a surprise birthday dessert!

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Based on Forest Gump, this lovely shrimp restaurant from the USA has opened its first restaurant in London! Amazing food and the restaurant is decked out just like you're on the film - it has its own gift shop too!

Bone Daddies

A small but tasty menu of Japanese ramen dishes.


One of the best kept secrets in London apparently. The TKTS booth sits in the middle of Leicester Square and is the official ticket reseller for all of London's West End shows. Left over seats are passed to TKTS a few days before each show and sold at a phenomenal discount - sometimes more than half price!

Gosh! Comics

A wealth of graphic novels from a wide variety of genres.


There are now several adaptions of this restaurant. It started as a one-off and is now growing rapidly. The green chili cheeseburger with the deep-fried pickles and blue cheese dip come highly recommended!

St Christopher's Place

After a busy day down Oxford Street, nothing beats a quiet escape to this hidden gem tucked in the heart of Marylebone.

Grosvenor House Hotel

A wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon Champagne tea!

Hedonism Wines

A wine and spirits shop for those with a sophisticated palate - this is the place to go to pick up something extra special.


Just off Carnaby Street, this shop is like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for grown up's! All of the chocolates are hand made by the team and don't just look good, they taste amazing too...

The Audley

A great after work boozer. Some of its original features have been retained throughout the years, which give it an authentic pub feel.

"The US Embassy is the only US Embassy in the world that does not belong to the United States. They wanted to buy it, but the Freeholder, the Duke of Westminster refused to sell and said he would only rent it. Infuriated, the American appealed to Parliament, but the only compromise on offer was that if the Americans returned all the land that was taken after the Independence War back to his family then he would sell. After the Americans realised that this would be most of Maine and New York, they agreed to a 999 year lease!"
