Was invited to an assessment at the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Burlington House office. The building is very grand and has interesting chemical artefacts throughout. A nice periodic table made of ceramic tiles. Good conference space. It was a little cold in the upstairs offices.

Burlington House is more than the home of the Royal Academy of Arts - their entrance is on the north side of the courtyard. There are various other learned societies arranged around the other three sides with (very) occasional exhibitions so it is possible to...More

Even though it is in a prime position in the courtyard of Burlington House the prices are extortionate. £2.50 for a small bottle of water for example - wholesale price around 30p. Coffee good but expensive.

I'm not really into art - but I was invited to go with a friend and I'm all up for new experiences... I was impressed from the 1st moment... even if some of the "art" was a little "modern" for my personal taste. However, the...More

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed

haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
