Because of the sheer number of places to explore and activities to be part of in London, it may feel a bit too overwhelming deciding what to do on your trip there! Invariably one always feels that they have missed on something. Therefore, it is always a good idea to be specific and concentrate on a single area at a time.
Marylebone is one such spot with those staying at the Chilworth Hotel Paddington in a perfect location to tour this beautiful neighbourhood of the city. If you plan to have a relaxed holiday while in the city and considering visiting a spa in Paddington you could chill out at the spa at the Chilworth hotel itself.
Some of the key spots to visit in the area are:
Daunt Books: For those that are passionate readers or like tranquil beautiful spaces a visit to Daunt books would be in order. Those staying at a Paddington Hotel London would find it a short stroll away from the hotel.
Considered as one of the finest bookstores in the city, this massive shop has a massive collection of books to keep book lovers engaged for hours. It is an Edwardian era bookshop that still retains its original charm and elegant ambience. Apart from the main central area on the ground floor, there is also the basement area and even a top floor that overlooks the main central hall. Whatever your favourite genre travel or fiction or non-fiction, you can be sure they have all kind of books. Booklovers that visit the shop are hooked and invariably end up making quite a few purchases before they leave.
If you have spent a few hours exploring Daunt Books and plan to return to the hotel satisfied but tired, enjoying the Chilworth Afternoon Tea experience would be just what you need to perk you up.
Cadenhead’s: If you would like to be in high spirits then a tour of Scotland’ oldest whiskey bottling location in London would be a welcome change from the typical tourist spots. A short stroll from the Paddington hotel Cadenhead’s has a vast range of whiskeys catering to all kinds of budgets from budget drinkers to connoisseurs. The whiskey is imported from all over the planet. There is a whiskey tasting session to enjoy a nice warm glass of the excellent product. There are none if any spots in the capital that offers such a diverse range, exceptional customer service and ambience quite like Cadenhead’s, so it is definitely worth a visit if you are a whiskey lover.
The Wallace Collection: Once the former home of the Wallace family, the impressive Wallace Collection is as impressive externally as the collection within. Each room at the property has a unique theme with luxurious and lavish artefacts that are packed within including sculptures, artworks and curios. Most of the items within the property are from the 1800s and a visit to the home is like going back in time. There are some very recognised art pieces hanging about the property with the famous ‘Laughing Cavalier’ one of the highlights.
