Hotel review: Malmaison London

“This British brand’s London property is housed in an elegant white-fronted Victorian building that was once a nurse’s home. The Mal bar and brasserie draws in guests and locals alike, while rooms – which squeeze in fun touches such as hanging wine glasses – will suit anyone up for some cosmopolitan cool.”

Secret London: 10 of our favourite overlooked green spaces

The inaugural National Park City Festival takes place across London from July 20-28. It’s an eclectic celebration of London’s great outdoors, with events ranging from musical installations in Epping Forest to walking tours of Kensington Gardens.

Almost half of London is green space, and its eight Royal Parks cover almost 2,000 hectares of land and attract millions of sunseekers, nature lovers and flâneurs. But there are many more overlooked options – sanctuaries from the bustle of city life but unencumbered by crowds. Here are 10 of our favourites.
