Scent of the land
Explore London with One Aldwych Curator, Milly Kenny-Ryder
London’s streets come alive in the autumn, avoid the tube and instead stroll or cycle from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. Covent Garden is one of the best areas in central London to explore on foot. The main Piazza always has beautiful seasonal floral displays, it’s a lovely place to grab a coffee and enjoy the street entertainment.
With our new-found passion for al fresco drinking and dining head to tucked away Neal’s Yard for an array of delicious options. Jacob and the Angel for coffee, St John for the best doughnuts in town or cheese and aperitif at Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels, where the wine list is unrivalled.
You can’t beat a night of opera at the grand Royal Opera House. There’s always a buzz in the air in Theatreland after the show has finished with an abundance of hot spots to sip something cool.
Ahead of a evening at the theatre my favourite place to eat is Opera Tavern on Drury Lane. The cosy restaurant serves the most delicious Italian-style tapas.
For indulgent British comfort food it has to be Cora Pearl. Named after the infamous 19th Century courtesan who lived near to the historic Covent Garden townhouse that the restaurant is set within, the menu is always a treat – you must try the Sunday roast.
