6 of London’s Most Luxurious Hotel Suites

Let’s face it: sometimes we all want to get away from London. But if you’re anything like The Handbook, you’ve barely reached Heathrow before you start frantically checking your social media to find out what’s going on in the city. Wouldn’t it be great if you could...

Awesome Afternoon Teas

East-End Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea. There’s no end to the offerings in the afternoon tea capital of the world; traditional, limited edition, themed, there’s always something to report and today is no different, except this time it isn’t in a five star hotel, it isn’t in Mayfair and it isn’t served on fine...

Skylon in the Royal Festival Hall have welcomed Tom Cook to their kitchen. Despite his surname instilling a strong sense of confidence, Cook has proved himself at Le Pont de la Tour and Le Gavroche to name but a few so when I was invited down a few weeks into his new job I was excited to see (but...
