Let us sweat the small stuff
The best service is the one you hardly notice. The driver who takes the fastest route as well as your bags. Your favourite sauvignon blanc in the cooler. Or the brunch that arrives at your bedroom door on Sunday. Personal assistance when you need it. Discretion around the clock.
Culture, curated for you
For the people who wake up and say “what am I going to remember about today?” We’ve opened our little black book of London’s creatives and connoisseurs. One-of-a-kind experiences that immerse you in the neighbourhood and level up at home. Bespoke wellness, creative workshops and tailored shopping.
Bay Garnett is a stylist, fashion editor and Oxfam adviser who, with her curated edit of pre-loved clothes, is championing an inward-looking manifesto for industry-wide change.

Collaborating with the likes of Selfridges to introduce vintage clothes to haute couture, Bay is demonstrating how clothes with history have the timeless appeal of good style – an apt lesson for today’s world.
Taking on Savile Row, award-winning tailor Caroline Andrew is introducing a feminine breath of fresh air to a traditional industry. For many of her discerning clients, including FTSE board directors, a visit to her century-old tailoring building in Mayfair, isn’t simply a suit-and-boot pitstop but a made-to-measure experience. Her bespoke, hand-crafted men’s and women’s British suits are characterised by their modern, clean, minimalist design and flattering fit. From casual safari jackets to formal double-pleated trousers, expect elegance, a refreshing perspective and a warm welcome.

His work – from large scale hardboard paintings to delicate mugs – lift the spirits with every detail.
Movement as medicine is the basis of Notting Hill’s celebrity-favourite fitness studio, Bodyism. More of a lifestyle than a workout regime, it sits within a unique niche. Bodyism blurs the lines between spa and gym, focusing on the four core pillars of mindset, nutrition, movement and sleep. Guided by founder James Duigan's ‘clean and lean’ philosophy, it takes a holistic approach to wellness, composing a personalised schedule that matches members with a team of specialists from yoga experts to massage therapists – perfect for those with a busy schedule.
Holland & Holland
Founded in 1835, by Harris and Henry Holland, Holland & Holland quickly became known as one of the most influential gunsmiths in Britain. Their two Royal warrants are a testament to the quality of their exceptionally forged rifles. As one of the few traditional gunmakers left standing in London, their exclusive range of bespoke guns continues to celebrate exceptional Britain craftsmanship and heritage. The perfectly sculpted barrels look even better paired with their artisanal yet functional field attire and worn on their 60-acre shooting grounds. World-class tuition, an indoor shooting cinema and exceptional fine-dining make it a standout experience.

Initially set up in 1993 as a project room for contemporary art in a perfect white cube, White Cube was designed by the architect Claudio Silvestrin and measured just 2.92 x 4.64 x 4.42 metres. It wasn’t long before it grew from being the smallest exhibition space in Europe at the time to an influential commercial gallery. Representing several legendary artists including Georg Baselitz, Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley and Mona Hatoum, the gallery hosts a dynamic programme across its three locations in Bermondsey, Mason’s Yard and Hong Kong.
Founded by Chris Connors and Elliot Cox, OPO is a network of immersive wellness experiences that enhance everyday spaces around London and beyond. It’s about finding stillness in the noise.
