All our itineraries are tailor made, meaning we'll make sure that all the hotels and activities suit you personally
First, experience London on a customized basis, with your own private guide, so you can really get below the surface of this fascinating city. London is a leading global city with a substantial influence on art, commerce, entertainment, fashion, finance, architecture and media to name a few. It is now also rightly regarded as the world's gastronomic epicenter, with a dazzling range of eating options from three-star Michelin fine dining to the latest pop-up restaurant serving char-siu pork and apple pickle buns.
It is a lively city brimming with history and culture throughout. Famous attractions include Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, West End theaters, the British Museum, the National Gallery, Harrods, Markets of Portobello, Brick Lane and Camden. It would be a challenge to say the least to see all the attractions within one visit, making London a popular repeat destination for many.
We have based your stay in The Goring, one of Scott Dunn's favorite London hotels, but we can of course talk through the different options depending on the style of hotel you like, and the location. The length of your stay is again totally down to how long you have in the city.
The easiest way to get across to Paris is on the Eurostar Train under the English Channel. We'll book first class tickets for the crossing, which now takes less than two and a half hours and takes you comfortably right from the center of one city to the heart of the other.
In Paris, too, we will tailor-make your trip with private guides and drivers as required so you can get the most out of your stay in the city. The 'City of Lights' has a long and rich history going back to Roman times, and is to this day one of Europe's centers of fashion, gastronomy, the arts and culture.
We have a range of hotels of different styles and types for you to choose from, but if you would like to experience one of the very best, we recommend the famous Hotel Le Bristol. Located on the prestigious Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré Hotel Le Bristol is at the heart of Paris' fashion and arts district, where it has been welcoming guests since 1925. Rooms are spacious and decorated in classic eighteenth-century style, and the hotel is home to one of the city's finest restaurants, the three-Michelin-starred L'Epicure.
