    Regent's Park - a nice place for some fresh air, walk around beautiful gardens and lakes, and may be a short visit to London Zoo in the park.

    Some places only an hour or so from London I have put under Dover. It may be worth looking there, if you have a car while you are visiting!

    Adjacent to College Garden is Fountain Court and St Katherine's Garden formed in what was the chapel, after the roof collapsed. The gargoyle now sits on the ground!

    We stayed in a suite in Swire House too. But, had we not, The Albert might have been a good place to look into.

    The address for Swire House is 59 Buckingham Gate. So you KNOW you are right in the middle of what most tourists come from world round to see. As an example, Big Ben is in the background in this pic.
