Hone your tennis skills in a secret garden

Explore Hyde Park and the Serpentine Gallery

The emerald jewel in London’s crown is the perfect spot to refresh your senses during the day. A scenic walk around the Serpentine Lido takes about forty minutes. With slightly longer to spare, you can pop into one of the ever-changing exhibitions at the progressive Serpentine Gallery, which is split into two buildings on either side of the lake.

Soak up the buzz at The Pantechnicon

Originally built in the 1830’s as a bazaar, this building has now been transformed into a multi-functional destination. Home to event spaces, shops, cafes, and a roof garden, this showcase to the exoticism of Georgian architecture is a perfect destination for a quick dose of culture in your lunch hour.

Admire design icons at The V&A

London’s museums are incredibly easy to drift in and out of, particularly on a weekday afternoon. One hour is just enough to glimpse one floor of the permanent collections. The fashion gallery is a great starting point; a permanent collection that includes the black Givenchy dress Audrey Hepburn wore in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Step into a world of fashion and beauty in Harrods

Harrods, the luxury department store, first opened in 1834 and stands as a symbol of the glamour of British retail, as well as the eccentricity of the British psyche. The beauty and fashion sections are of course legendary, featuring all the luxury fashion labels you’d expect. But you might just want to spend your time travelling up and down the striking Egyptian escalator, or visiting the extraordinary food hall.
