Arts and Culture
Widely regarded as a hotbed of contemporary artistic practice, London has literally hundreds of small private galleries located in and around the centre of town. Major collections and temporary exhibitions can be seen at Tate Modern and Tate Britain, the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, the Hayward Gallery at the South Bank Centre, and the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park - a short walk from the hotel. London also has a rich selection of museums - many of which are only a short distance from the hotel, such as the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), and educational treats like the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum.
Located directly opposite The Dorchester, Hyde Park is worth a special mention. The city's largest royal park, it offers one of the finest landscapes in London and a number of attractions including the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain and the Serpentine Gallery. Visitors can also enjoy a range of leisure activities including jogging, tennis, horse-riding, and boating on the Serpentine.
The Dorchester is only a short distance from London's most exclusive shopping areas such as New Bond Street, Old Bond Street, South Molton Street, Knightsbridge, Sloane Square and Chelsea. With a wide range of leading brands, high street names and specialist retail outlets, Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly and Covent Garden are also within walking distance of the hotel.
