Where do W1J locals go?

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.

Wellington Arch

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

Berkeley Square

A leafy spot to eat lunch on a sunny day and a lovely space to escape too.

Shepherd Market

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

Royal Artillery Memorial

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

The Royal Academy of Arts

A world-renowned gallery with leading exhibitions such as this one from the defiant Ai Weiwei!

Grosvenor Square

Grosvenor Square on a balmy evening beats Hyde Park!

The Parlour, Sketch

Posh breakfast and striking, artist-designed dining rooms - perfect for a special occasion...

Savile Row

The best tailors in Europe. Bespoke or off the rail, there's something for everyone's budget.

Mayfair Pizza Company

A hidden gem on a cobbled street in Mayfair. Simple bistro-style Italian food, a wood-fired pizza oven and really affordable for the Mayfair area.

The Gallery, Sketch

A stylish spot for afternoon tea, but be sure to check out the toilets that are shaped like eggs!

Galvin at Windows

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

Kingly Court

A variety of restaurants for every occasion and budget, which are centred round a covered courtyard.

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.

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!

"The first Scotch egg was not Scotch at all! It was invented in London at Fortnum and Mason and was inspired by North Indian cuisine consisting of hard-boiled egg surrounded by a spicy shell of ground lamb."
