There’s no better way to awaken the senses than to experience the best of London. From unearthing hidden gems to witnessing cultural blockbusters, from marvelling at innovative structures to getting lost in acres of green space, there is so much to do, see, eat and fall in love with in this buzzing metropolis. So where to start? The answer is right here, with our curated collection of the capital’s best bits. In this issue of London by St George, we explore the city’s past by delving into its fascinating history, looking at days gone by in trading, aviation, art and music. Next, we celebrate London’s prosperous present by uncovering exotic new breakfast offerings, visiting the hottest grooming establishments for the most discerning of modern gentlemen, and delving into Battersea’s bustling art scene, where galleries new and old are thriving. Perhaps most importantly, we look with excitement to London’s future, including the latest developments from St George, which form an integral part of London’s transformation. Whether your perfect home is a sophisticated penthouse in the heart of Chelsea, or at the top of London’s latest architectural icon with uninterrupted views of the city, there’s a new abode for every Londoner to realise their lifestyle dreams.

BRITISH ENGIN EERING . TE STED BEYON D EN DUR ANCE. The Bremont ALT1-C is a mechanical aviation chronometer that’s 99.998% accurate. It’s painstakingly built by hand at our workshops in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, England. But if the inside of the ALT1-C is delicate, the outside is anything but. The case is made from steel that’s seven times harder than you’ll find in ordinary watches. (We bombard it with electrons to toughen it up.) The crystal is sapphire and scratch-resistant. (We know, we’ve tried.) And the whole thing is water resistant to 100 metres. We hope you enjoy the ALT1-C. After all, you’ll be together a long time.
