Our Favourite London-based jewellery designer! The formerly creative Director of Boucheron who now owns London’s most exciting, colourful and iconoclast brand, has taken over a whole building at number 5 Carlos Place, in Mayfair.

5. The Crown Jewels

Who could visit London without seeing the Crown Jewels that are housed in the Tower of London. Your visit to the Crown Jewels exhibition is included in the admission price to the Tower of London, and explores the role of the Tower in protecting the jewels that make up the key pieces used during coronations held throughout the history of the British Monarchy.crown-jewels_2
