Thank you for the mu­sic

Where London - - Welcome - KO­HI­NOOR SA­HOTA Group Edi­tor Where Lon­don

David Bowie, Adele and Pink Floyd are just some of the big­gest names in mu­sic that found their fame in Lon­don. This month we ded­i­cate our cover to Pink Floyd, one of the great­est bands in the world. As The Pink Floyd Ex­hi­bi­tion: Their Mor­tal Re­mains opens at the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum, we delve through their iconic al­bum cover art, stage props and con­cert posters (p. 10).

Lon­don is in full bloom! If you haven’t been able to get tick­ets for the Chelsea

Flower Show, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to en­joy the great out­doors (p. 16). One of my favourite things to do when the weather warms up is to watch a show at Re­gent’s Park Open Air Theatre. The glo­ri­ous sur­round­ings, with birds singing and the sun set­ting, cre­ates a mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence – just re­mem­ber to bring a blan­ket!

Lon­don is any­thing but or­di­nary. While we may be one of the world’s food cap­i­tals – in fact, we have more Miche­lin-starred chefs than any­where else on the planet – why not en­joy a taste of some­thing dif­fer­ent? Eat your way around sup­per clubs, which can even be found in­side a dis­used Tube car­riage (p. 62).

Fi­nally, Mu­se­ums at Night (p. 36) lets you en­joy sights in a new light with after-hours fun, in­clud­ing se­cret bars and can­dlelit tours.

Have a fan­tas­tic trip!
