Admire The Jacobean Beauty of Kensington Palace
Although there is much history surrounding Kensington Palace, it is perhaps most famous as the home of Princess Diana. Turned into a palace from a Jacobean home in the late 1600s by the likes of Sir Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor, this fairy tale building has played host to a parade of royals and aristocrats. Climb the King’s Staircase, decorated by a wonderfullu vivid painting by William Kent which shows George I’s court in all its glamorous, riotous glory as if they were watching you ascend the stairs. Then there’s the exquisitely decorated Cupola Room, the King’s Drawing Room where power play and negotiation was the order of the day and the Privy Chamber where Queen Caroline entertained beneath a decorous, elaborate ceiling. In the dress collection, look out for the wonderful new exhibition based around the fabulous clothes worn by The Queen, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret. Five rooms of displays delve into how this regal trio’s dress choices reflect the fashion of their day, from the nipped in waists of the 50s to the sparkles and shoulder pads of the 80s. Fabulous.

"London is one of the most exciting places in the world to go out drinking. And drinking is a fine way to spend an evening as long as you’re sensible. In London, there are watering holes to cater for just about every taste. The problem is choosing the right bar.
Some people suffer from FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). I suffer from FOPIS (Fear the Other Place is Better). You’ve no sooner sat down with your pint, cocktail, or glass of wine when the horrible doubt creeps over you, like a billowing grey cloud of doubt: what if the venue you passed two doors down was better?
That’s where personal recommendations come in handy. And that’s what I’m offering here in this selection of unique London wine bars.
If you like wine and want to drink it in some interesting places - rather than cookie-cutter bars devoid of individual character - then here are ten that I can personally recommend to a London visitor.
I’ve spent happy times in them all. There’s a wide range here too so choose the one that suits your taste – and wines that do the same."
