Stephanie Steeden – a Monograms’ Local Host in London – has provided travelers planning a trip to this dynamic and urban yet charming destination, some insider tips. According to her:

  1. A favorite first stop when visiting London is the South Bank, situated along the River Thames. Stephanie also likes to take visitors across the bank to Sommerset House. During the summer, it offers an open-air cinema and during the winter, an ice rink.
  2. Spring is the best time to visit London. It’s not too warm or too crowded.
  3. To understand the British, combine your visit to Westminster (the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey) with a short stroll to the gritty Cabinet War Rooms, opposite St. James’ Park. When Hitler’s bombers were laying waste to London, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his Cabinet ran the British war effort here.
  4. For a casual weekend breakfast – full of people watching – go to Borough Market.
  5. After a hard morning of window-shopping on glamorous Sloane Street, where the ritzy neighborhoods of Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Belgravia meet, give yourself a treat straight out of Masterpiece Theater with the “champagne afternoon tea” in the Cadogan Hotel.  This place became world-famous in 1895 when Oscar Wilde was arrested here for “committing acts of gross indecency.”
  6. An entertaining night-out in London is a tour that follows Jack the Ripper. It provides fascinating insight into the seedy underbelly of Victorian London.
  7. Walking the streets of London is the best way to see and grasp the city. You can walk from Buckingham Palace to Westminster in 10 minutes or Covent Garden to Regents Street (shopping central) in 20 minutes. It’s a very walk-able place with architecture that spans several centuries: From Medieval and Edwardian to modern.
