Culture, gastronomic experience, theatre, museums, literature, architecture… Elegant and glamorous experiences for all tastes are what you can find in London. An unmissable route through the trendiest side of The Town.
Park Lane Apartments shows you how London’s culture, art and luxury can be a great way to enjoy a holiday in the big city.
Minimalist design is an option not always considered when thinking about London. However, between the 34th and 52nd floors of The Shard, Renzo Piano’s legendary building, is the first stop. Being on the other side of the Thames allows for a series of trendy tours. First step: the Tate Modern, with an explosive gathering of contemporary art: Kandinsky, Duchamps, Dalí, Miró, Picasso, Pollock, Warhol, Man Ray…
A boat connects every 40 minutes with the Tate Britain and allows you to cross the Thames, although you can also choose to cross the bridge that goes up to St Paul’s Cathedral, one of the most recognisable landmarks of the city. In the Tate’s oldest building, you can tour more than 500 years of British art by some of the city’s most iconic local artists. The city itself is an overflow of elegance and style, which has been reconverted many times, preserving its genuine genes, but has also known how to embrace the avant-garde to become the figurehead of the trendy world in every conceivable range.
For a family plan, there is also the luxury alternative. The Warner Bros. Studio Tour provides an opportunity to explore the magical world of Harry Potter films. This tour takes you behind the scenes and shows a variety of sets, costumes and props. It is advisable to purchase tickets with return transport and entrance to the studio.
The Victoria & Albert Museum is a vindicator of the decorative arts in its broadest spectrum and always has temporary exhibitions that cross the most luxurious expressions. Admission is free, although there is a charge for temporary exhibitions. Its shop is one of the most exclusive in the city, where the avant-garde of local design gathers, displaying pieces of all kinds.
The British Museum is one of the most important in the world. It was the first of its kind on the planet. It houses the most important pieces from ancient Egypt. There you can see unmissable pieces from the history of humanity such as the Rosetta Stone, marbles from the Parthenon, or the Discobolus of Myron.
The National Gallery is the national art gallery, a key part of the visit. It is a luxury to stand in front of “The Bathers” by Paul Cézanne, “Samson and Delilah” by Peter Paul Rubens, or “The Sunflowers” by Vincent van Gogh.
Finally, before bidding farewell to this vibrant and seductive city, it is necessary to immerse oneself in palace life. Buckingham Palace is the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. It houses the most important collection of royal art, including some of the British monarch’s crown jewels in London. It is also used for official ceremonies, state visits and sightseeing. It is famous for housing a substantial part of the Royal Collection, an extraordinary collection of works of art from the Royal Collection. The Royal Apartments can only be visited for 10 weeks during the summer and the dates are announced on the website during the preceding winter. Even if you miss the dates, the overall visit is magnificent.
Kensington Palace, meanwhile, is located in the gardens of the same name. It is possible to visit Queen Victoria’s rooms, as well as temporary exhibitions. Some of Lady Di‘s dresses are currently on display.
