A Long Weekend in London
London is one of the world’s most famous cities. It’s a centre for everything from fashion to finance, politics to pop music, and monarchy to media – and it’s been at the heart of English history for thousands of years.
Spotlight On Eltham Palace
Wander through a medieval hall, see glamorous examples of art deco design and explore a basement converted into a Second World War bunker. Plus, meet the owner's pampered pet lemur, Mah-jongg.
Step Inside Apsley House and Wellington Arch
On the corner of London's Hyde Park, Apsley House was a city home to the Duke of Wellington and displays the military leader's vast art collection. Across the road, the well-known landmark of Wellington Arch houses an exhibition on Wellington's life, and offers great views across central London.
London's Blue Plaques
London’s blue plaques scheme, run by English Heritage, celebrates the links between notable figures of the past and the buildings in which they lived and worked. Founded in 1866, it has inspired many similar schemes in the UK and around the world.
