SERPENTINE GALLERIES

“It’s in Hyde Park, so you can go for a nice walk after visiting. I saw Zaha Hadid’s early work here recently.” SERPENTINEGALLERIES.ORG

CHILTERN FIREHOUSE

“When I have guests who want something fancy, I’ll take them here. I prefer an authentic British pub experience!” CHILTERNFIREHOUSE.COM

GAZIANO & GIRLING

“Their handcrafted, made-to-measure shoes are like amazing art. It takes several appointments, but they last for life.” GAZIANOGIRLING.COM

BATTERSEA PARK

“My new apartment is in Battersea and I recently discovered— and am still exploring—this beautiful park.” BATTERSEAPARK.ORG

SOUTH KENSINGTON CLUB

“It’s a very nice boutique gym, but far from my new place. Now I walk to one on the park—I like whatever’s close!” SOUTHKENSINGTONCLUB.COM

CAMBIO DE TERCIO

“Really good jamón, a friendly staff, and a great selection of Spanish wines. Reminds me of home in Spain!” CAMBIODETERCIO.CO.UK
