Wot about an upscale holiday in London
? Our Piccadilly and Mayfair hotels are located just a stone's throw away from some of the world's premier shopping and entertainment precincts, so take a look for yourself.
Things to do
Right in the middle of London's West End, you'll find some of the most upmarket experiences to be had in the UK. Take a step back in time to the days when you played Monopoly for hours on end. As you wander around Piccadilly, Mayfair and Park Lane, you're bound to recall your board game glory days.
Start off your adventure smack bang in the middle of Piccadilly Circus and snap some selfies in front of the Eros statue before embarking on a walk down Regent Street and Shaftesbury Avenue. Then spend some time in Soho Square or hang out in China Town for the day before checking out the carvings on the iconic Marble Arch. In the evening, you can attend a film premiere in Leicester Square or catch a West End show.
Bookworms and literary nerds will love staying in this area. There are three bookshops to put on your bucket list: Waterstone's Piccadilly - London's largest bookshop, Hatchard's in Piccadilly – London's oldest bookshop, and Bernard J Shapero Rare Books – a beautiful shop specialising in antique books.
Shopping and dining
You'll be able to give your credit cards the workout of their lives in Piccadilly and Mayfair. The must-shop locations are Regent Street, Oxford Street, Mount Street and Carnaby Street, where you'll find an infinite range of luxury brands and well-known designers' studios.
When it comes to dining, there's everything from celebrity chef and Michelin-starred restaurants to humble pubs and takeaway shops. Go classy or traditional, the choice is yours.
