The impressive 108-metre floating hotel with an elegant restaurant, lounge bar, and a day spa, open to non residents. Its permanently moored so no need to worry about sea sickness. It offers expansive views of Canary Wharf and is a uniquely luxurious experience. Cruising first class? Yes please. Sounds perfectly quirky.
The concept behind the Lost & Found originated from an explorer and professor known in the Victorian era as Professor Hettie. G. Watson. Hettie travelled the world in search of new variations and species of botanics. She captured samples of the plants and flowers and kept them hidden away in her secret hideaway.
How amazing is this structure? Quoted as being a building with the Guggenheim effect - a complicated structure using ribbons of steel. Littlehampton has never been so interesting to me. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sculptured building. Passionate about this. Me? You bet. Planning our trip to Littlehampton right now.
Camp and Furnace has all the best bits from all the best festivals; indoors. There is a restaurant, bar, fanpark, conference venue and cultural hangout. This place has been reported to be the Coolest place in the country. I don't think it's far wrong. I haven't been but I seriously have to find the time.
Surrounded by books and fragrant with tea, the London Review Cake Shop is the modern answer to London’s long-lost literary coffee-houses. Accessed through the Bookshop via a corridor in the history section, the Cake Shop offers a small but vibrant menu, a wide selection of fine teas and a superior espresso. Above all, it provides a haven for reading and reflection.
Manager Terry Glover says:
'I want the Cake Shop to reflect the things I love: lemon trees, fresh herbs, sunny days, home baking, urban foraging, farmers' markets... I like the traditional with a twist.'
A Quirky "All in One" destination. Great food, nice hotel and an Art garden to amuse you. There are two garden areas open to the public, a traditional knot garden, as well as, the ‘secret garden’ with the renovated Victorian swimming pool (as a pond) complete with a stunning tree fountain made by Julian Bailey
