Undoubtedly one of London’s must-see museums, Tate Britain is overflowing with art treasures from Tudor times right up to the present day. Whatever your tastes, there’ll be something that captures your imagination in these beautifully designed galleries, and better still, the permanent collection is totally free to view. 

Once you’re done, why not take a little wander along the Thames? It’s right outside.

Peggy Porschen

With its photogenic rose shop-front, this effortlessly chic cafe is the place to be seen in Belgravia, (don’t be surprised to spot a famous face or two).

Best known for its luxuriously decadent cupcakes, macaroons, and pastries, there’s nowhere better to indulge your sweet tooth. And if you can’t decide what to go for, may we suggest one of everything?

Chelsea Physic Garden

Founded in 1673, this is the capital’s oldest botanic garden and well worth a visit if you’re craving a change of pace, and a moment to pause and gather your thoughts. As you wander through its beautifully tended grounds, you’ll find it hard to believe you’re still in the centre of one of the world’s busiest cities. Just be sure to book your ticket in advance.

The Bell Tower at Westminster Cathedral Clermont Hotels

The Bell Tower at Westminster Cathedral

Not to be confused with Westminster Abbey, the cathedral was completed in 1903, making it a relative newcomer to the area. Standing an impressive 273 ft high, The Bell Tower offers stunning panoramic views across the capital. Fortunately, you won’t need to worry about any steps - you can take an elevator straight to the top. Simply breathtaking.
