A river boat will ferry you from the gargantuan installations in the Tate Modern’s turbine hall to marvel at the historic crown jewels sparkling within the bowers of the Tower of London. Hire a private box to watch Hamlet under the Elizabethan-style beams of Shakespeare’s Globe or head to leafy Kensington’s Victoria and Albert Museum to explore centuries of haute couture.
Luxury shopping in London
Glittering Edwardian chandeliers and vintage Halston frocks draw you to the fashionable Portobello Market at the heart of Notting Hill. Take a glossy black cab to Harrods, where the scent of rich, woody cologne envelops the stone sarcophagi and mummies of the Egyptian Room. Anya Hindmarch bags, flowing Temperley and edgy Vivienne Westwood entice you into exclusive Selfridges, the vast, pillar-fronted retail emporium on Oxford Street.
Sunlight bounces off the London Eye as you toast panoramic views of the city with a glass or two of champagne in your own private capsule. Follow your nose to an intimate restaurant in Hatton Garden, where tender fillets of English lamb are served alongside deep vintage ruby clarets. During a visit to a fashionable Mayfair pub, you might even spot a celebrity enjoying a quiet pint of London Pride.
