London
You can fly with Austrian Airlines to London! Visit the historical city and pay a visit to the majestic Buckingham palace and view the notorious changing of the palace guards. London is one of the cultural capitals of the world with a whole host of tourist attractions such as the magnificent British library, home to the famous Magna Carta or the British Museum where the glorious Rosetta stone resides. Take a ride on one of the famous red London buses or black taxis to get to where you need to be around the sprawling city center. But don't miss out on a visit to the imposing houses of parliament or the immense tower clock Big Ben. If you are hungry make sure to order the traditional dish of fish "n" chips which is usually available from most restaurants in the capital.

The Collection
And once again London is about fashion, that's for sure! The Collection in the elegant district of Chelsea develops into a culinary meeting point of the fashion world. But that might also have to do with the Chanel store right around the corner. Or maybe it's the New York loft style of the restaurant. Possibly it's also the bustling atmosphere inside the venue. Tom Dixon and his design research studio were responsible for the interior design of the refurbished building. He came up with quite some ideas for the two floors: benches covered in red velvet, and matching brick walls. A glass staircase and trendy metallic lighting. Executive chef Alex Fanzola and his team cook entirely without butter but olive oil. Their cuisine has a Mediterranean touch and the ingredients come from the organic farm Laverstoke Park, while the meat is supplied by O'Shea's of Knightsbridge.

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 Stafford
A lot was going on under the roof of the London Stafford Kempinski Hotel in the past 100 years. The Carriage House in St. James for example used to put up the hot bleeds during those times when they weren't used by their owners - mostly aristocrats from the neighbourhood. The barn doors are still the same, and so are the names of the famous race horses. These are now assigned to the different rooms on the first level of The Stafford London by Kempinski Hotel which resemble famous scholars. The ship timbers that can be found in each room have done their duty in the 18th century on sailing vessels. What was going on in the secret subterranean James' palace of the wine cellar is unrecorded. What we know, however, is that the Carriage House has twelve rooms and suites for their guests. 67 more rooms are located in the main building of the luxury hotel. Then there's also Stafford Mews which used to be mews and, in turn, brings us back to the horses. It now has 26 junior and master suites with separate entrance, and houses the new restaurant of the Stafford - The Lyttelton.

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.
