As summer casts its warm embrace upon London, the city comes alive with a vibrant energy that's hard to resist. From the lush greens of Hyde Park to the bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street, staying at a Bedford Corner Hotel nestled at the heart of these iconic locations is a gateway to experiencing the best the city has to offer.
When the sun comes out, the locals and visitors flock to Hyde Park. Just a short walk from Bedford Corner Hotel, Hyde Park offers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Spend a lazy afternoon picnicking on the grass, renting a rowboat on the Serpentine Lake, or simply taking a leisurely stroll beneath the canopy of ancient trees.
For shopaholics, Oxford Street is a dream. From luxury brands to high-street favourites, Oxford Street caters to every style and budget. Besides clothing and accessories, you'll find electronics, homeware, and souvenirs galore. During summer, the street is adorned with colourful floral displays, making window shopping an enchanting experience.
Al Fresco Dining
Summer in London means it's time to savour delicious food and refreshing drinks in the open air. Fortunately, our location provides easy access to a myriad of eateries and pubs that offer al fresco dining options such as Charlotte Street. Enjoy a leisurely brunch at a quaint cafe, treat yourself to an afternoon tea in a sunlit garden, or unwind with friends over a pint at a traditional pub's outdoor terrace.
Explore the Surrounding Neighbourhoods
With Hyde Park, Oxford Street, and Tottenham Court Road as your central base, you'll be ideally positioned to explore other vibrant neighbourhoods of London. Take a short walk to Marylebone for its charming boutiques and delightful cafes. Not far away is Soho, a trendy area known for its eclectic nightlife and diverse dining options.
Gail’s Bakery, Bloomsbury
Gail’s bread is a masterpiece. Sourdough traditionally made, honouring the process of grain to harvest, mill to bakery. This is slow food at its absolute best — you won’t find this on the supermarket shelves. With values of community, real food, reducing waste and the finest ingredients, the passion from Gail’s master artisan bakers and their decades old sourdough starters comes through in every bite. This is not a worthy, puritanical meal though. Gail’s perfectly pairs their natural ingredients, time-honoured techniques, and seasonal, low waste ethics with the kind of everyday luxury that gets your day off to the very best of beginnings.
Your treat box includes:
• Drinks voucher to exchange for an iced tea or hot drink
• Vanilla shortbread biscuits
• Strawberry ricotta cake
• Rhubarb & vanilla jam
• Packet of crisps
So, pack your sunhat and prepare to soak up the vibrant atmosphere of this iconic city.
