London is full of famous sights, from the Tower to the Shard, Greenwich to Kew with countless world-class museums and galleries. During this interactive conversation, our local expert will introduce some of their favorite"must-sees" landmarks and provide handy tips for when to visit and faux-pas to look out for.

Together we will venture into overlooked corners of more famous historic buildings such as Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral, before adding a few London suburbs to the itinerary. We will move off the beaten path to enjoy the charms of Twickenham, Richmond, and Kew with their 17th and 18th-century buildings and glorious views of the Thames. Our conversation also highlights two of the city's best markets, Portobello for antiques and Columbia Road for its dazzling display of flowers and artisan shops, with tips provided for our next in-person visit. Hattie will also provide several ideas for fabulous lunches catering to all budgets, as well as her favorite theatres and smaller museums – that are often less crowded than The British Museum but host remarkable collections.

Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of navigating London, sightseeing, shopping, and eating away from the crowds.

Great Look at London with Hattie Bennett

My wife and I have been to London many times. Yet, this Conversation done by Hattie Bennett was informative and interesting. I got several ideas about things that I will do on my next trip.

Hattie's talking mannerisms are slightly distracting, but manageable for me as listener, and her content is absolutely outstanding.

Poor presentation

We have viewed several Context presentations and this is the first one that has been difficult to watch. Lip smacking, stammering, and fast talking throughout. Made for difficult listening. Almost unbearable. Also, she mentioned that the pandemic is now over. No, it’s not.
