Royal Hospital Chelsea
By day, the Royal Chelsea Hospital houses 300 British Army veterans. On select summer nights, the central courtyard becomes an open-air venue for shows. Get there when gates open at 5:30 and have dinner on the lawn, then watch the sun set as your favorite band plays.
When you need a break from the impressive collection, grab something from the buffet and eat outside in the spectacular John Madjeski Garden. If it's a hot day, you can even take your shoes and socks off and paddle in the oval-shaped pool.
Daunt Books might be the best travel bookstore in the world. Visit the Edwardian main room, bask in the elegant skylights and beautiful mezzanine balcony, grab a book off any shelf and make it your own personal library for a few hours.
If you're looking for great picnic inspiration, walk down Marylebone High Street. Organic pastries and bread at Au Pain Quotidien, amazing cheeses at La Fromagerie and ready-made meals at the Natural Kitchen will all make your mouth water. Picnic in nearby Regent's Park.
Maltby Street is a collection of shops, restaurants and pubs under the arches of an elevated railroad track. Go on the weekend and wander through the informal street market; it's a hip alternative to the amazing but crowded Borough Market nearby.
