Valentine’s Day at 1 Lombard Street

This is a place is rooted in romance. Once a bank run by the father of Charles Dicken’s first love Maria Beadnell, the writer himself would walk the street in the early hours staring at the building where his true love dozed.

Lanes of London Review

Lanes of London on Park Lane is like a new best friend who you feel like you have known for years. Or that is what The Handbook thought when we went down to check it out this week.

With low lighting, grand ceilings, vintage mirrors, high wing back chairs and an air of a member’s club there is none of the stuffiness, the cocktails were served in […]
