Imagine the peace and calm of a country hotel, endless manicured gardens to take afternoon tea or a pre-dinner cocktail and a timeless interior – in the beating heart of London.

Elegant, warm, intimate and personal – perfect words to describe The Goring. Being the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace it’s a regal favourite and received a Royal Warrant in 2013. Built in Belgravia during the Edwardian era by Otto Goring, it’s remarkably been run by subsequent members of the Goring family ever since.

Luxury prevails today in this impeccably English iconic hotel. From the Michelin-starred Dining Room, the silks on the walls, footmen and the grand piano in The Goring Bar. Pause and take in the exquisite Russell Sage designed interiors. This is the undisputed ‘baby grand’ of London hotels, often visited by Her Majesty The Queen and famously used by the Middleton family on the occasion of the marriage of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prominent theatre streets include Drury Lane, Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Strand. The works staged are predominantly musicals, classic or middle-brow plays, and comedy performances.

In January, London’s ExCel is filled with thousands of boats for London International Boat Show. Whether you’re looking for a new yacht, or want to browse the latest wake-boarding gear, the show has something for everyone.

Head of the River Race takes place every March, where 400 crews race from Mortlake to Putney along the Thames.

Each year, Oxford and Cambridge compete on the river Thames in the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. The race is always exciting and if you can get to the Thames on the day, you can really soak up the atmosphere.

Hyde Park has a fleet of rowing and pedal boats which operate on the famous Serpentine and the UK’s first Solarshuttle, a magnificent vessel which glides silently across the lake powered only by the sun. Boating on the Serpentine is open from April until October 31.
