It’s among the most accessible European destinations—despite the price of the Pound. So pack your bags for a style-laden week in a city filled with new offerings and old favorites. From haute hotels to decadent dining, historic adventures and fashion’s finest, London is most certainly calling.
Grey, rainy weather is to England what color is to Kit Kemp. At her latest Firmdale Hotel, Ham Yard, which opened last summer, you can’t help but have your weary jetlagged spirits lifted. Just cozy up with a book off the shelf in the library, grab a seat at the bar or strike out in the bowling alley. Practically unheard of in central London, there’s even a roof deck, should the weather permit. No two pattern-on-pattern rooms are alike, so be ready for chartreuse, cobalt and fuchsia dreams. – ZSS
