Meet the walrus at the Horniman Museum
Victorian south-east London was far more fascinating than most other parts of the capital thanks to tea trader Frederick John Horniman,who wanted to‘bring the world to Forest Hill’.He began to collect specimens and artefacts of natural history and culture from all over the world to create his own museum in the late 1800s.The present museum opened in 1901 and the 130-year-old over-stuffed walrus is still its star attraction!
Have a quintessentially British afternoon tea
Flattering lighting,the scent of fresh roses,a classical cellist-plus-pianist duo in the corner:the Foyer at Claridge’s is a class act.This elegant art deco palace is where chic A-listers and other high rollers come to take afternoon tea.Gracious,discreet service is a bonus.Soak up the surroundings and tuck in,this is a five-star experience you won't forget in a hurry.
See the Christmas lights twinkling in the West End
For generations,an evening stroll to see the lights has been a Christmastime tradition.Switched on in early November,usually by a celeb who’s likely to draw a crowd,the lights in Oxford Street tend to be more modern and might even promote a new movie,whereas the Regent Street lights are usually classic and classy.Check out Selfridges’beautifully dressed Christmas windows,too.Magical.
