Heading to the British capital for a jolly jaunt? Allow us to highlight the best spots to hit while you’re there. We’ve included everything from where to stay, what to pack and where to eat to ensure you get the best out of your 48-hour stay.


Where To Stay

The Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch—one of London's coolest neighborhoods—provides sleek and comfortable digs with a dose of signature British quirkiness.


Where To Take Tea

Head to the famed Wolseley for high tea and enjoy a classic spread of cucumber sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and a side of celebrity sightings.


Where To Shop

Stroll along Marlyebone High Street, peruse Notting Hill's famed market and check out the classic department stores Liberty of London, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Harrods.

Where To Dine

Cozy up at Chiltern Firehouse for a delightful meal followed by cocktails amidst the style set in this gem.


Where To Score Souvenirs

If you, like us, consider vintage clothing to be a souvenir, head to this store for some of London's best finds. Kate Moss is a regular.

What To Pack

Make sure to pack a cozy top coat to segue from sightseeing to dinner in style. An Alexa Chung-worthy denim shift dress looks great layered over a turtleneck for added warmth, finish with functional Chelsea boots and a tote.
