When in London, do as the Londoners do… At our recent VB x L'Etoile Sport garden party at Eaton Square, we asked guest Sarah Corbett-Winder for all her favorite spots around the city—where to go, what to see and how to discover the local hidden gems. Here's what the stylist and personal shopper had to say—and for a behind-the-scenes look at that sun-kissed tennis event, keep scrolling.

The NoMad hotel for spicy margs, the Pelican for amazing food and a cool vibe, and Carmel or Noble Rot for date night. Cecconi’s is great for a working lunch and a glass of champagne! The Stables Café in Brondesbury for a fab coffee weekend coffee. And Maison Estelle for a little dance.
Notting Hill. Portobello market—great for picking up some amazing one-off vintage pieces; I love the atmosphere too. Westbourne Grove—Sezane, Sandro and the vintage shops around Notting Hill tube. And, of course, Bruton Street for the best store in London—VB!
Ride the Thames Clipper to really take in the sites. Rent a bike. Make an early morning visit to Kempton Market—it’s worth it! Or an early morning visit to Chelsea Flower market. Take a trip to Chiswick for antique shops, have a stroll in Hampstead Heath, ideally with a pooch, followed by a dip in the lido. Have a really long bath—so English! And smile lots.
