Where do The Hawkins locals go?

The Goring Hotel

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

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.

The Grenadier

A local pub tucked away and open since 1818. It gets incredibly busy with people coming after work and is one of the most haunted pubs in London! They serve a fantastic beef Wellington too!

Kate Spade

The perfect place to pick up a gift for the women in your life - classic handbags and luxurious accessories.

Luxurious leather goods with a very high price tag, but perfect for special occasions and treats.

Browns

Set alongside Chelsea's upmarket boutiques, Browns is the perfect place to pick up designer women's clothing.

Luxurious Italian clothing in the heart of Chelsea.

Galvin at Windows

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

The Pantechnicon Rooms

There's a shortage of good dog-friendly restaurants in London, however Pantechnicon absolutely nails it. It is certainly the best Sunday roast in town.

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.

The Orange

Who wouldn't enjoy a whole roast cow?! The Sunday roast at The Orange is certainly generously sized...

Shepherd Market

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