Following the announcement that London has knocked Paris off the top of the Best City list compiled by Anholt-GFK City Brands Index, we at Red Carnation celebrated by putting together a list of fun activities that make the most of this charismatic and timeless city. To be at the centre of the action, stay at the Chesterfield Mayfair, where our experienced staff members can get you comfortable and help you make the most of your time in the capital.

Book with the Mayfair Weekends package to get luxurious accommodation, an afternoon tea, a full English breakfast every day and a number of other treats to make your stay here memorable.

Historical London

Whether you want the gruesome gory details of past misdeeds, or would prefer an in-depth examination of Darwin's contributions to science, London has it all. An absolute plethora of historical venues awaits your attention, from the mysterious and the macabre (Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons) to the upstanding and the prestigious (Imperial War Museum).

Marvellous landmarks

The capital is known for its high concentration of important historical landmarks. Wander the imposing stone corridors of the Tower of London, stepping lively to avoid the fall of Jack Ketch's axe. Ascend to the heavens while exploring the upper floors of St Paul's Cathedral. Salute Nelson in Trafalgar Square, or take a trip to Westminster and see the vast Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. It's all easily accessible from the Chesterfield Mayfair.

The nightlife

London nightlife is second to none, with an unmatched variety of bars and pubs to keep you amused. Witness excellent views from a rooftop bar, clink glasses with the locals in a traditional pub or simply relax with a couple of friends in a heated beer garden. If you fancy a nightcap, the Chesterfield Mayfair features a 24-hour bar - perfect for those late-night tipples.
