Great Britain
Great Britain: Discover a country of great contrasts! If you are a fan of big cities, you shouldn't miss London, the capital city. It's one of the most vibrant cities not only in Great Britain, but in the world. It's full of history, art and heritage. Castles and historic houses on the one hand and modern architecture, top-class restaurants and designer fashion stores on the other. If you are visiting Great Britain and are based in London, we highly recommend some day trips to the city Bath, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle. Great Britain also offers popular seaside cities like Brighton at the coastline.

Durley House
At other hotels you may ask yourself: Is this art or may I sit on it? If you`ve had enough of the minimalist chic you are just at the right place at the Durley`s. Here, the English cottage style reigns supreme, which will never be out of fashion. Or do you want to do without striped wallpaper, subdued light, fluffy beds, life-size fireplaces or truly cosy sofas? Smart ones say that the English only furnish their houses in such a comfortable style because the weather outside is so uncomfortable. However, they are only envious: Local architects simply have skills for the feel-good factor blended with royal ambience. That includes the service as well: The Durley House doesn`t have a restaurant but who needs it anyway when being able to count on one`s own butler? 24-hour service is of paramount importance here, and with the smoothly running dumbwaiter your dinner comes directly to your suite, where your butler will serve it. In the mood for eating out anyway? Then we recommend a picnic basket, the park nearby and James, of course, who will organise the details. Can you imagine anything more decadent? Yes, sure: Your Personal Shopper takes you by the hand and leads you to the places of your heart`s desire and fashion`s homelands: Bond Street, Knightsbridge, or Sloane Street.

Blitz
John Howlin is proud - of his extensive Swatch collection from the 80s. At the age of 13 he already preferred second hand military pants over hip jeans. This preference has stayed: with his partners he renovated an old furniture factory and since 2011 he displays his favourite pieces at the Blitz vintage department store - which very much resembles an art installation. A yellowed book to your left, a smart suitcase on your right. Next to it: sun glasses, records and a cinema armchair. And in between? Venerable designer pieces by Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and garments from the American 40s and 50s. You won't be able to leave the store with burgundy brick walls and original floor boards very quickly, that's for sure. 9,000 square metres, spread over two floors are full of mementos, things never seen before and other eye catchers. Which makes it quite difficult to find John's watches.

The Gun
The problem with pubs is meals because beyond ale and beer you won't find anything suitable for your stomach. At "The Gun" you get both. You get fish sandwich and cosy leather sofas, Lord Nelson ambience and grilled ox tongue, macaroni with cheese and blue cheese from the Auvergne. The only question that remains is: Do you feel like fine dining or pubquiz? Would you rather have a view of the Thames or tea in the salon? The Gun offers everything to any taste: Sunday lunches for families, Adnams Bitter and Aspall's Cider for students or sailor's paintings and swords on the wall for the seasoned guests. While the Gun has style, it is also loyal to its reputation as a pub. And it is  the best restaurant on the docks at that.

Marble Hill Park
Once the private playground of ladies and lords, Marble Hill Park is open to the public now. With a fantastic view of the Thames, the park is not the largest but the most beautiful park in London. On the hill you still find the villa of the Countess of Suffolk, but a sport event has become the real highlight here: Ultimate Frisbee. Do you remember the time when Frisbee was a mere pastime between sunbathing and plunging into the water? That's over now: Today, the flying disk is thrown professionally, in a team, with shirts, on a court and the like. If you want to take a look at the new trend sport, you should pass by on Sundays. From 11:30, a corner of Marble Hill Park hosts Ultimate Frisbee contests. The rules are simple: There is a pitch, the goals are called end zone, and the teams are made up of seven players each. If you throw the disc, you are not allowed to run, if you run, you are allowed to catch and whenever the Frisbee is on the ground, it's time for the opponent to go for it. It can't be long before the sport becomes an Olympic discipline. Ultimate Frisbee is still very new, but if you want to be part of it right from the beginning you should come by and have a couple of beers with the fans.
