THE where PORTFOLIO IN LONDON
We publish editions in Arabic and Chinese.
Our foreign-language editions are published twice a year in Arabic and three times a year in Chinese. They are available on the concierge desk and in-room at our partner hotels. Where is the largest global publisher of visitor magazines, available in the finest hotels and operating in more than 80 cities.
Who can forget the London Olympic
Games? We saw sporting heroes, including Jessica Ennis-Hill, who became a household name after her heptathlon victory, Mo Farah with his ‘mobot’ pose and The Queen ‘parachuting’ out of a helicopter. Relive the joy of London’s legacy in our Olympic feature, and find out where you can watch this year’s
Rio Olympic Games (p. 10). London is a city filled with people – it’s hard to find any secret spaces. In Hidden London (p. 16) we tell you about tours of places we can’t believe still exist, from bunkers used by Sir Winston Churchill during World War II to disused Underground stations. Plus, we round up unusual locations anyone can visit, including the place where the world’s first successful Caesarean section was performed and the site of some ancient Roman baths.
This is a great time to visit London as so many of our iconic buildings are open for you to visit, including the Houses of Parliament (p. 28) and royal residences Buckingham
Palace and Clarence House (p. 24). London also comes alive in the summer! As the sun shines, you will see the city in a new light with beer gardens (p. 80), outdoor art trails (p. 40), bustling markets (p. 62), open-air swimming pools (p. 84), pop-up cinemas and theatre venues (p. 48), and picnic hampers you can pick up and enjoy in nearby parks (p. 68).
Enjoy the summer!
