What to do?

Our UK hosts and Home Critics share their insider guides to London and the Cotswolds. From London’s most exciting restaurants to the best things to see in the Cotswolds, plus where to take a pit stop on the journey from one to the other.

Eat

Newly Michelin-starred, Santiago Lastra’s Kol is one of the most-talked-about restaurants in London right now, combining Mexican influences with British produce. Ravinder Bhogal’s Jikoni is a firm local favourite with a menu packed with flavour.

Escape

While West London makes for the perfect base to revel in the capital's wonders, why not add on a bucolic adventure and explore the charms of the Cotswolds? Straddling six counties, this is a vast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just a short train ride or car journey away from London.

What to do?

Our local hosts and Home Critics share their expert knowledge of the Eternal City. From where to find the most fascinating landmarks to where to eat the best Roman cuisine, discover the delights of the Italian capital.

Eat

Family-run Enoteca Corsi only opens in the afternoon, so head there for lunch to indulge in this osteria's menu of hearty classics. Another great option is the ancient winery and bottiglieria (wine shop) Ai Tre Scalini serves authentic Roman cuisine alongside great wine.

See

Uncover a fascinating part of the city's history (and avoid the crowds while doing so) by heading to one of its lesser-known ruins – Largo di Torre Argentina. Dating back to 4th century BC, this sunken piazza was the site of Julius Caesar's death.
