There’s a lot to be said for being neighbours with the Queen during your short stay in Mayfair. Just a short walk away from Buckingham Palace and you arrive at some of the capital’s finest destinations. Here are just a handful of the fantastic central London attractions you can enjoy right from the doorstep of your central London serviced apartments.
Fortnum & Mason
This emporium of luxury has traded on the same corner of Piccadilly for more than three centuries. Fortnum and Mason is the place to be if you’re looking for an experience in indulgence. Here, you’ll learn how to choose from exotic food from across the globe, buy some honey from the beehives on the roof, and can even try your hand at blending your own tea.
The Household Cavalry Museum
For a glance behind the curtain of the royal world, head over to the 18th century stables, located in the centre of the Whitehall Horse Guards. After watching the guardsman and horses go about their duties, you can check out the museum’s fantastic collection of ceremonial items, including furniture and silver made by Fabergé.
The Victoria and Albert Museum
Just a short journey from your central London serviced apartments, the Victoria and Albert Museum houses a 2,000-year-old collection of rare books, photographs, and paintings. And if you still have a thirst for history and culture afterwards, you’ll find the museums of Science and Natural History just across the road.
St James’s Park
Relax for an afternoon at London’s oldest royal park, and one of the best natural locations in the capital city. St James’s Park sits just outside of Buckingham Palace. The footbridge that leads across Henry the VIII’s old deer park is a fantastic place to take your photographs of Buckingham Palace.
The Queen’s Gallery
Head along to the palace itself to see the changing of the guards, and the artworks that have been accumulated by British monarchs for over 500 years. You’ll find miniature sculptures, paintings and more, including 600 drawings from Leonardo Da Vinci.
