    • Out and about in London

      Recommended by our very own General Manager, Massimiliano Binda

      The singular charms of Mayfair seem ageless, and yet every year I discover something that makes London – especially our very smart village – that little bit more unique and surprising.  

      From getting truly close to the world’s most beautiful art at the Cork Street Galleries to visiting global fashion superstars (Marc Jacobs, Goyard and Christian Louboutin have all opened up new boutiques on Mount Street) and the big hitters of Bond Street, it’s shopping heaven at one of London’s most exciting cultural hubs.

      Royal Academy of Arts

      Right on our doorstep, there’s the Royal Academy of Arts, which is Britain’s oldest fine arts society, founded in 1768. As well as a rolling programme of fantastic exhibitions, it holds a famous Summer Exhibition, which showcases new work of artists known and unknown. Plus to get there you go right past Burlington Arcade and Savile Row, so there are a few discreet shopping opportunities en route.

      British Museum

      A short walk or a quick cab will take you to the British Museum for Sunken cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds, a major cultural exhibition that you can take at your own pace.

      The Royal Opera House

      The Royal Opera House plays host to Verdi’s triumphant Nabucco (June 6-30). Daniele Abbado’s production promises to be immense, with enormous chorus and Placido Domingo taking the powerful title role.
