15 May – Depart US for London.
16 May – Arrive London and transfer to The Milestone – optional afternoon activity “on own”. Cocktails and Dinner at The Milestone. For an activity upon arrival, I suggest we make our way to Notting Hill and the Portobello Road Market. I don’t think you’ll see Hugh Grant or Julia Roberts, but lots of fun and antiques, and junk as well, galore!! Lots of lunch places too. Of course, shopping at your old favorites is possible as well as visiting historic locations. If you haven’t experienced the “EYE”, this would be a good time to do that. Dinner at the hotel with the group.
17 May – The Columbia Road Flower Market, open on Sunday only! – a visit is how we begin the day. Following this visit, we will go to Majestic Marylebone. Marylebone is a majestic pocket of central London, displaying a wonderful array of Georgian, Victorian and ArtDeco architecture, along with gorgeous churches, historic shops and a diverse cast of characters and celebrities. The jewel in the crown is the stunning Wallace Collection – one of the city’s most beautiful character museums, with an outstanding collection of French object d’art and paintings by the Old Masters including; Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt and more.
18 May – Contemporary Art in London! London has one of the most exciting contemporary art scenes in the world, with a diverse and constantly evolving cast of talented artists, daring curators, and cutting-edge galleries. Our contemporary experts give you the insider track on what’s hot, who to collect now and what is getting curators and collectors excited. Take a customized tour around South London to see the host of galleries set up around Damien Hirst’s Newport Street, visit Shoreditch to see how the hip East London scene has grown-up, or look at some of the most prestigious galleries.
19 May – A full day at the Chelsea Flower Show. You will be transferred to the facility with a guide on our coach who will outline for us the sections and parts of the show we might want to visit. This is a large area and “picking and choosing” is important. You will have lunch on your own there or close by. However, if you leave the venue, you cannot re-enter.
20 May – A full day to enjoy London. Harrods, Selfridges, Sloan Square, or more art with visits to the Victoria and Albert or The National Portrait Gallery. If you want to revisit historical sites, today is for that too. Tonight, we will have dinner together.
