Just Back: A Fresh View of London

The 2022 Mindset
“Now’s the time to splurge on a special experience. There’s no better revenge travel moment than getting a play-by-play explanation of the pomp and ceremony behind the Changing of the Guard, from within the barracks.”
– Henley Vazquez
Hotel Hopping
“London is a city of distinct neighborhoods with iconic hotels in each area: the Corinthia, in the heart of history near Whitehall; The Savoy, overlooking the Thames; or Claridge’s, The Connaught, Brown’s Hotel, and The Langham, for easy access to Mayfair’s fine dining and galleries. There’s Four Seasons at Park Lane, 45 Park Lane, and The Dorchester, just moments from Hyde Park; The Berkeley and Mandarin Oriental for Harrods and Buckingham Palace; the Shangri-La – inside The Shard – close to Borough Market; and Rosewood London ideally placed for Covent Garden.”

“Hoteliers in London are not just service focused, they’re curators of British history. At the Savoy we had a sneak first look at the Royal Suite, which has been transformed by Gucci and Christie’s to celebrate the fashion house’s centenary year. Who knew that founder Guccio Gucci was once employed at the Savoy as a luggage porter?”
– Vanessa McGovern
“We visited Charing Cross station with a renowned underground historian to tour closed-to-the-public platforms used for MI5 training and movies such as Skyfall and The Bourne Ultimatum – truly unique.”

“Bypassing the crowds and having the chance to sit behind the glass in Winston Churchill’s chair is unforgettable. On one arm of the chair, you can feel grooves from where he tapped his ring. Whether you’re a history buff, an Anglophile, or a fan of VIP treatment, it’s a must.”
– Diane Sherer
“You can take your kids to visit Shakespeare’s Globe, set foot on a replica ship that circumnavigated the earth in 1577, and touch the Roman wall all in one morning. With our insider knowledge, we unlock access to touch, understand, and explore history and the lasting heritage found in London.”
