Six must visit highlights that are a stone's throw from Corinthia London

Who wouldn’t love a short walk to the West End or a stroll along the river, as well as enjoying some of the best cultural sights, shopping, eating and drinking in London? We have chosen six must visit highlights to share if you are in need of some inspiration. You’re welcome.

1. St Martin-In-The-Fields

Five minutes on foot from Corinthia London

On the edge of Trafalgar Square, the 500-year-old church is a place of contemplation and music. With performances most days, you can just walk in and take a moment to listen to classics by Beethoven, Bach or our favourite, Vivaldi.

 

2. National Portrait Gallery

Eight minutes on foot from Corinthia London

For the inevitable British rainy day, the National Portrait Gallery is the place to hide away. Explore the maze of galleries and get up close to medieval revolutionaries, Shakespeare, the Suffragettes and the Vanity Fair chromolithographs.

 

3. Burlington Arcade

20 minutes on foot or 10 minutes by bus from Corinthia London

It’s inside, out of the rain, and it’s pretty. We love a stroll through the promenade of shops, especially to peek into the windows of jewellers (and Manolo Blahnik for shoes) or pause for a cup of tea and a Ladurée macaron.

 

4. The National Poetry Library

Nine minutes on foot from Corinthia London

Home to the largest public collection of modern poetry in the world, the library was opened in 1953 by poets T.S. Eliot and Herbert Read and has been at the heart of the nation’s poetry community ever since.

 

5. Scooter Cafe

17 minutes on foot from Corinthia London

A quirky, retro café like no other, with a Piatti scooter in the window and a (female) tabby cat called Bob as your feline host. Enjoy a latte to a soundtrack of French jazz in the day and bluesy sounds when the sun goes down.

 

6. Science Gallery London

40 minutes on foot or 14 minutes by tube from Corinthia London

Part of the Global Science Gallery network, this is the place for discovery and curiosity, with exhibitions that share a new point of view on current issues and creative ideas.
