Tips for your trip from Joseph Fox of the Hy­att Re­gency Lon­don − The Churchill.

Your concierge is there to help. From get­ting into Buck­ing­ham Palace to find­ing the per­fect af­ter­noon tea, Joseph Fox, of Hy­att Re­gency Lon­don − The Churchill, re­veals how to make the most of your visit.

1Make sure you get the best from your concierge − don’t be afraid to ask Con­tact your concierge be­fore you ar­rive, so they can tailor your stay to suit your needs.

2We can get the hottest tick­ets in town The most pop­u­lar re­quest from vis­i­tors in Au­gust is for tick­ets to visit The Queen’s state rooms at Buck­ing­ham Palace (below), which are only open for a short pe­riod ev­ery year (from July un­til 28 Septem­ber).

3You can do Lon­don in a day If you want to cram in all the main sights of the city, I would rec­om­mend start­ing the day with a ride on a hop on-hop off bus tour of Lon­don. Try to stay on for the full cir­cuit (which lasts for just over three hours), as that way you get to see vir­tu­ally all of the cap­i­tal’s fa­mous land­marks and attractions. I’d sug­gest tick­ing off which places you would like to see more of and re­turn­ing to them us­ing your still-valid bus ticket.

4The Tube is the best way to get around With­out a doubt, the Tube (Un­der­ground or sub­way) is the best way to travel around the city. It’s quick, easy and an ab­so­lute in­sti­tu­tion. You may not pass by some of the fa­mous land­marks, but the Tube cer­tainly cuts out the some­times hec­tic traf­fic on the roads above it. Also, where pos­si­ble and weather per­mit­ting, there is no bet­ter way to en­joy all that this great city has to of­fer than by tak­ing a leisurely stroll to your

cho­sen des­ti­na­tion.

5What­ever you do, you must have an af­ter­noon tea No visit is com­plete with­out en­joy­ing an af­ter­noon tea, a quintessential English ex­pe­ri­ence. At Hy­att Re­gency Lon­don − The Churchill, we serve fab­u­lous pas­tries and sand­wiches against the back­drop of beau­ti­ful Port­man Square. It’s un­for­get­table.
