CULTURE, HERITAGE AND HISTORY

ANDREA MCVEIGH visits the Stafford Hotel and finds out why it’s one of the best hotels in London…

WHEN it comes to location in London, the SW1A postcode has the best claim to culture, heritage, history and everything that truly sums up the British establishment.

AS I LOWERED the RV window to speak to the police officer, I knew my worst fears were about to be confirmed. Patrolman Nolan smiled and said, “I’m afraid you’ll have to turn back, sir. You can’t go any further tonight without snow chains. It’s like a blizzard up there.”

This wasn’t what I wanted to hear, and didn’t quite square with the brochures telling me the best time to visit Lake Tahoe was in May! Sunbathing by the shore indeed? Certainly not in May this year.
