Now the decorations and twinkly lights have been taken down, all we’re left with is the dark, miserable wet days, too tight jeans and a mince pie addiction. Which is why we need to boost our moods in positive ways, like an invigorating walk followed by a Sunday roast rather than 3 back to back gym classes and then some broth – there’s a time and a place and the depths of January […]

What? A Sunday afternoon spent in swinging skirts, learning the Charleston, sipping on Champagne and scoffing down scones (like a lady). New? Far from it. The Waldorf Hilton Tea Dances have been going on for thirty years, and some of their patrons who have been there from the very beginning are still turning up to, ditch their zimmer frames and put on their dancing shoes.

We Review: Tea at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square

What? The 1920s, a time of frivolity post-war, a time when England was recovering from First World War, a time when the likes of Cecil Beaton and Nancy Mitford were at the centre of London’s raucous party scene. It was also the time that the building that the Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square now resides in, was the headquarters for the Port of London Authority. Looking back at its history, the hotel team have now launched an afternoon tea and cocktail menu inspired ‘The Bright Young Things’ (the name given to the It crowd of the day). […]
