St Bartholomew-the-Great

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the City is the oldest church in London, dating back to 1123. It's one of
the few churches to have survived both the Great Fire of 1666, and the bombings of World War II.
This church was featured in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral and some scenes of Shakespeare in Love.

Palm House at Kew Gardens


Designed by Decimus Burton in the 1840s, this recently restored jewel of Victorian engineering offers a warm winter refuge.

To me, Leadenhall Market is quite beautifully preserved.

Hampton Court


Cardinal Wolsey, powerful Archbishop of York to Henry VIII, began building Hampton Court in 1514. Originally it was not a royal palace but was intended as Wolsey’s riverside country residence.
Later, in 1525, in the hope of retaining royal favor, Wolsey offered it to the king. After the royal takeover, Hampton Court was twice rebuilt and extended, first by Henry himself and then, in the 1690s, by William and Mary, who employed Christopher Wren as architect.

The house itself remains the star exhibit, with lavish interiors by Robert Adam. Some rooms have Spitalfields silk wall-hangings, and include many fine pictures. The gardens include a rosarium and a spectacular conservatory built in 1830.
