Postcard from… England

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner…

Why go there? See this historic and cosmopolitan city before the Olympics crowds descend next year.
Children will love... The Dinosaur Gallery at the Natural History Museum, toy shopping in Hamleys and the hands-on art activities at Tate Modern.

Parents will love... Strolling through London’s leafy Royal Parks, the myriad of world-class museums, tours of the Olympic Park and afternoon tea at The Ritz

Stay at… The Goring Hotel, where Princess Kate and her family stayed before her wedding, is the
only five-star hotel in London that can boast: “One hundred years, one family”. Its delightful family accommodation features interconnecting bedrooms and individual bathrooms. Styled like an English country house, it’s perfect for a family of four and costs £1,025 per night.
