Quintessential English glamour & luxury
are combined in this glorious shop.
The best Christmas hamper to give ever!
More than Harrods, this should be on every
tour guide to London.Have your tea here then go to the Royal Academy afterwards!

After the Royal Academy, I always bring
This unknown gem is hidden behind the
hustle & bustle of Piccadilly & is a slice
of Morocco in London. The wonderful,
real mint tea, which they top up over &
over,you can sit with for a long time & chill.
The mother ship is the restaurant next door,
which is more expensive, but a dream to
go to as well in the evening.
Apres visiter l’Academie Royale je m’enporte
mes amis ici. Celui ci est un bijou inconnu et
cache derrriere bouscouler du Piccadilly et
c’est une tranche de Maroc a Londres. Le
the a la menthe,rempli a volonte vous pouvez
rester la longtemps tres calme.
La mere est voisine prochaine, plus chere mais
une reve a visiter dans la soiree.

Its almost a cliche this tourist site :
Art on the Railings at Green Park.
Still worth a quick look but important
to leave your wallet at home, the work
is just terrible, & they try the big sell as if this
was not England ….

Marvellous concerts take place here
in the rooms where Handel himself
lived & worked. I cant praise them
highly enough. A gem of a place in
the heart of London. Beautiful Georgian
house too.It was here that Handel lived
& composed such great works as his
Messiah from 1723 till his death in1759

Classy .. but membership prices reflect this …
I used to be a member & adore the members’
room for coffee; great place to hang out with
a friend. I went there to see my old mate Frank
Bowling’s show – the first black RA – shame on
the whole art establishment for not promoting
our black artists sooner.
Stephen Fry says “I do not think there is a more
pleasurable or fulfilling thing to be, than a Friend of
the Royal Academy. I am passionate about the Royal
Academy and think it stands for all the very best in
British cultural life”
