A concierge’s guide to London


From riverside pubs and royal palaces to the city’s dinosaur-in-residence, here’s where to go and what to see on your next London adventure.

London is one of the world’s great cities, with its cultural riches, trailblazing restaurant scene and roll call of iconic sights. Deciding where to go and what to do can be a struggle even for locals – which is why personal recommendations go a long way in this town. Your guide to this great metropolis is Patrick O’Donoghue, Assistant Head Concierge at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London. His knowledge of the city is second to none, and he’s impeccably connected – in short, the London friend we’d all like to have.
