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.

Brick Lane
Multi-cultural flair in London: If you want to see something else than Empire, you should visit Brick Lane.  The street has always belonged to newcomers from other countries: In the past to the Huguenots, then to the German Jews, then to the Irish and eventually to the people from Bangladesh, the latter still dominating the street scene with their curry restaurants. You can taste this colourful mix.   All the restaurants offer delicious and rather cheap food, but if you want wine with your food you should bring your own: Some restaurants don't have licences for alcohol, but tolerate if you bring your own. If this is too complicated for you, you can increase your alcohol levels at one of the Brick Lane nightclubs. The famous clubs 93 Feet East and The Vibe Bar offer good drinks and round-the-clock dancing.   But also the artists and designers have discovered Brick Lane, so boutiques are mushrooming in the lively quarter. You can buy the hottest vintage fashion here. Also included in the programme: markets, festivals and the best graffiti in town. You will for sure not get bored in Banglatown!

Harwood Arms
Then, in pre-Jamie Oliver times, in the fish-and-chips era when England was still a culinary nobody, the following slogan applied quite fittingly: Who wants to eat well in England eats Indian food. But that's not true any longer: Even the Indians orient themselves along England's new cooking wave, and they have to work hard for not being crushed by the Empire's chefs.   People have started to eat English again, and they still do it at pubs. But even pubs, as we can see with the Harwood Arms, have undergone a facelift. Instead of the former dark and decent atmosphere you enjoy your meals in a bright and friendly, albeit still rustic ambience. And you are served all kinds of venison. From pigeons to deer the English shoot everything that is not quick enough to fly or run away only to serve it thereafter as excellent venison on your plate.   There, it tickles your palate in liaison with carrots, beans and mint, only to be followed by a butter milk pudding and chef de cuisine's Mike Robinson's recommendation. The latter, by the way, is also the head of a cooking school.

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.

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. But they are only envious: Local architects simply have skills for the feel-good factor blended with royal ambience. And 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. Double room from approx. 330 Euros per night.
