Happy holidays guys! Following my hectic days, it was lovely to spend a weekend in London Luxury Quarter. Located at Mayfair, the heart of London’s West End; London Luxury Quarter lies a collection of streets and lanes with a unique charm. From the food, art and fashion; London Luxury Quarter is the best area to spend on your visit to London.
Set up in 2010 London Luxury Quarter is an initiative supported by New West End Company and Heart of London Business Alliance. London Luxury Quarter is positioned as global destination and is marketed worldwide with an estimated £3bn retail spend per year attracting visitors from a multitude of countries.
I started my luxury journey from lunch at Thomas’s, Burberry’s first ever café, offering a menu of quintessentially British classics made with the finest seasonal ingredients sourced from artisanal suppliers across the UK.
Thomas’s Café is positioned within the store building and boasts an exquisitely refined interior of delicacy and simplicity, along with the addition of delicious light lunches, cakes and drinks to enjoy before my VIP shopping experience at Burberry itself.
Following my lunch, the Burberry is given me the VIP shopping experience. They introduced me the history of 121 Regent Street and insight into their new collection and services.
Next I was introduced to Maddox Gallery which is at the forefront of the contemporary and modern art world. It has built a reputation for sourcing and exhibiting exclusive, cutting-edge art from internationally acclaimed and emerging artists. The new Connor Brothers Exhibition which was a complete sell out in the first day and other key pieces on display.
After that, I was invited to visit Floris for a bespoke introduction to the brand’s history and services and an exploration of fragrances made for the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Winston Churchill.
Founded in 1730, Floris is the oldest English retailer of fragrance and toiletries. It holds a Royal Warrant as the perfumery to the Royal Family and is run today by the 8th and 9th generation of the family.
Here it comes next to the sweet ending at Cavendish Hotel. Located on the corner of Duke Street and Jermyn Street in the heart of Mayfair, The Cavendish London stands on the very site of the original Cavendish hotel, whose most famous owner was the redoubtable Rosa Lewis, better known as the “The Duchess of Duke Street”. The present building was opened as hotel in 1966, when it was considered one of the most modern hotels of its kind at the time. It is therefore fitting that the hotel continues this tradition of a contemporary and stylish hotel that sits comfortably with its history.
To summarize my weekend in London was wonderful while staying in London Luxury Quarter. I highly recommend this Mayfair area for you all to visit while in London.
Thank you London Luxury Quarter and Sinclair&Partners for partnering with me on this trip.
