If your schedule only allows for a quick trip through London and the countryside it is well worth it! The beautiful English countryside is a short distance outside of London and is easily accessible by different modes of transportation. During the drive you can enjoy an assortment of architecture, specifically the popular Tudor style homes that are surrounded by green rolling hills. A unique place to visit is Warwick Castle. Geared toward entertaining children, it is equally interesting and enjoyable for adults. The property and surrounding views are spectacular. If this is the only place that you are able to visit in the countryside it will make you feel as if you have seen much more!
Back in London, Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences is located a short walking distance from Buckingham Palace. The neighborhood, as one would expect, is lovely. The entrance is private with a guard which leads to a unique courtyard setting. The Taj buildings are nestled around the courtyard with restaurants and the main entrance to the hotel. The feeling is open and airy, even though it is in a large city. The hotel offers the upmost in customer service, from check-in to check-out. The staff at Taj will ensure that your stay is truly memorable. The hotel has various types of accommodations to choose from. Each are unique and sophisticated in design. For example, the Falconer’s two bedroom suite opens to a small foyer which leads to the bedrooms, living room area and kitchen. Its spacious design and comforts are more like a flat than a hotel suite. Taj has several excellent restaurants and bars to choose from. Take a culinary trip to India at the Michelin-starred restaurant, Quilon. Enjoy a varied European menu at Kona or at Taj’s other restaurants. If you are in the mood to explore the city, there are many restaurants to try. The Mango Tree is a highly recommended Thai restaurant which is a short distance from the Taj. The location of Taj 51 is really exceptional in that you can walk to so many historic sites and famous places. For a large city, London has a quaint feeling. Even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, you will still want to explore this magical city!0
