Summer in South Kensington

If  you’re looking for a break summer is a particularly brilliant time to visit London, and a great season (and reason!) to make Ampersand your home away from home. Our music-inspired rooms and suites celebrate a British sense of whimsy– elaborate wallpapers, colourful plump cushions and ornate velvet headboards add quirky touches to the elegant spaces. From our suites, take in the Mary Poppins’ views of London’s skyline.

With the warm days and long, balmy evenings, it feels like we are given even more time to explore the city’s green spaces, attractions, bars and restaurants. Whether it is a night, a long weekend or a whole week of rest and relaxation, at Ampersand we have everything you need to help you make the most of your stay.


Explore the wonders of the natural world and beyond at London's best museums

If you want to make the most of the school holidays there’s plenty of family friendly fun to be had, with the Natural History and Science Museums right on our doorstep. With exhibitions running throughout the year there’s always something fun and educational to keep the kids occupied and entertained. If you’re lucky your trip might coincide with one of the Science Museum’s Astronights, where you can sleep over among the exhibits.

Hyde Park gets ready to rock with Andrea Bocelli, Kings of Leon and Robbie Williams at BST

Some of the city’s most popular summer destinations are right on our doorstep. For anyone seeking an urban oasis Hyde Park is a must visit. One of the most beautiful royal parks, it’s staged sell-out concerts, and seen revolutionary speakers and suffragettes take up at Speaker’s Corner. The Serpentine provides a beautiful lakeside walk, or you can cool off with a dip in one of London’s oldest Lidos after an afternoon sunbathing. The park also hosts regular guided walking tours, taking in nature and local history. Each year the park also hosts BST Hyde Park, a series of concerts with legendary headliners performing into the evening, including The Rolling Stones, Florence and the Machine and Kylie Minogue. This year will see legends like Kings of Leon on 30th June , Andrea Bocelli on 5th July and Robbie Williams on 6th July take the stage across three weekends, so whether you’re a fan of pop, rock or classical, there’s the perfect headliner for you.
