Inn the Park

A fantastic place to watch the world go by, with an outdoor terrace to enjoy sunny days and stunning views of Whitehall and Buckingham Palace.

Pimlico Fresh

Freshly prepared salads and cakes certainly make lunchtimes more appealing...

Tachbrook Street Market

A great street food market open 2 hours every lunchtime.

Shepherd Market

A great selection of pubs and sandwich shops in a corner of Mayfair between Green Park and Hyde Park.

Hardcore Lobster & More

Perfectly cooked lobster and burgers - a welcome alternative to restaurants serving similar dishes.

Oddbins

As well as selling a wide range of beer, wine and spirits, the Oddbins in Pimlico does free tasting sessions too!

The Goring Hotel

A luxurious spot for upmarket afternoon tea and beautiful rooms for a romantic getaway.

St John's Smith Square

If you're a fan of classical music, this stunning venue is a must. The architecture is awe-inspiring too...

Moo

The first Argentinian pub to open in the UK, this place serves traditional dishes and South American wines.

Rubens Hotel

An institution over 100 years old, this stunning hotel is beautiful inside - you really are stepping back into a grander era!

Australian War Memorial

I love its design and you get to experience a bit of culture walking from this pretty corner of Green Park to Hyde Park.

Royal Artillery Memorial

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

Wellington Arch

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

Delicias de Portugal

Super favourite amongst locals and professionals in the area. Great selection of salads, sandwiches, pastas, wines, meat and cheese, and take away lunch. Usually the queue starts on the street outside of the shop.

St James's Square

Beautifully maintained, this garden square is a real retreat from the hustle and bustle of central London - it's amazing how quiet it is!
