London's "Market Secrets"
There is no capital quite so diverse and cosmopolitan as London. This, of course, makes deciding where to stay a little tricky when your choice is like a packet of eclectic allsorts. So, Luxury Explorer is here to help you make your mind up by bringing you an exclusive and exquisite package in the heart of the Capital, just a walk from St.Paul's Cathedral at the charming Threadneedles. Here the dome of the famous cathedral is echoed in the ceiling of this converted banking hall that now crowns a most impressive reception area.
Threadneedles has charm, not just because of its historical interest and its superb situation, but also because it's been blended with so much style, care and refined modernity. This mix creates an almost perfect environment for chilling and relaxing.
Why have a festive "pit-stop" here?
The reasons are multitudinous and multifaceted. The wonderful and oft-filmed markets in the City are brimming with Christmas delights and in an atmosphere that encourages the onset of that "Christmas feeling". These markets, such as Borough Market (where Madonna filmed her latest video), Brick Lane Sunday Market (where designer look-alike clothing comes at a pinch of the price), Hoxton Street (specialising on a Saturday in toys and wonderful nickknacks) and Old Spitalfields (selling antiques, books, art and everything you could wish for in one of these markets) are all merely a trinket's throw away from Threadneedles. You really can fill up, not just your table for the 25th, but also stockings and tree gifts.
The indulgent and affordable offer:
After all this activity you will want to drop into something soft, inviting and leathery. The heart of this city boutique gem is The Honesty Bar. Beneath the stained glass central Dome - where you will feel inclined to relax, drink tea or Krug, admire the festive surrounds and succumb to the intoxicating fusion of festive season and shopping. It is also a fabulous bar to meet up with friends or family.
