Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum

It might not be the first mu­seum that comes to mind when you think of Lon­don, but for decor lovers, this mecca of art and de­sign is where it’s at. From fash­ion to fur­ni­ture, the col­lec­tions in­clude ceram­ics by Pi­casso, a Mar­cel Breuer arm­chair and the enor­mous Great Bed of Ware, which dates to around 1590. vam.ac.uk

The Con­ran Shop

The flag­ship of Sir Ter­ence Con­ran’s re­tail em­pire, this store is a go-to, and not just for the beau­ti­ful cu­rated fur­ni­ture, home and gar­den ac­ces­sories, tex­tiles, beauty prod­ucts and gifts on dis­play. The shop is lo­cated in the his­toric Miche­lin House on Ful­ham Road in Chelsea, a gor­geous Art Deco struc­ture (swoon!) that was once home to the Miche­lin Tire com­pany. con­ran­shop.com

De­sign­ers Guild

De­signer Tri­cia Guild’s sig­na­ture colour­ful shop­per’s par­adise on King’s Road is a wel­come respite from a grey Lon­don day. From there, head to chic Bromp­ton and Ful­ham roads, where you’ll find an­tiques em­po­ri­ums and rare book out­lets like the bi­jou Sokol Books. de­sign­ers­guild.com, sokol.co.uk

Bom­bay Brasserie

This gor­geous restau­rant is well worth mak­ing a reser­va­tion for. In­dian eater­ies abound in Lon­don, but with a menu that en­com­passes culi­nary in­flu­ences from Mum­bai – meat to veg­e­tar­ian, mild to spicy – and a chef who uses only the fresh­est of in­gre­di­ents, Bom­bay Brasserie is it for me. Choose to dine in the Raj-in­spired bar, the bright glass-ceilinged con­ser­va­tory or the cozy chan­de­lier-laden main din­ing room. bom­bayb.co.uk
