  1.  Royal Horseguards Hotel

    Royal Horseguards Afternoon Tea

    Yesterday a friend and I enjoyed afternoon tea at the Royal Horseguards Hotel. The hotel is located in a prestigious street close to Whitehall and faces out onto Victoria Embankment Gardens and the River Thames. The afternoon tea consisted of finger sandwiches with contemporary savoury bites and delicious cakes and pastries. We enjoyed a relaxing  three hour visit in beautiful surroundings and with consistantly excellent service.

  2. Little Venice

    It’s uncertain where the name "Little Venice" came from and even though you’re unlikely to see any gondolas, it’s a title that well suits this area with its attractive waterways.

    For most of the year Little Venice is one of the most charming and tranquil corners in London but on the first bank holiday weekend in May (Saturday 4th - Monday 6th May 2013) the area is transformed with the vibrant and colourful Canalway Cavalcade, a unique waterways festival. It is organised by the IWA (Inland Waterways Association). More information about the IWA can be found on their website here.
