A short stroll through Hyde Park takes you from The Royal Albert Hall to the 200-year-old Corus Hotel Hyde Park, while the Royal Opera House is just a four-minute stroll from the luxu- rious One Aldwych Hotel. The Ham Yard Hotel, meanwhile, is an oasis of calm just 10 minutes from The London Palladium in the busy West End. The Royal Horseguards, overlooking the Thames and the London Eye, is close to several theatres including the London Coliseum. If you're planning a summer visit to take in opera at Holland Park Open Air Theatre, check out the nearby K West Hotel & Spa, with its Rock 'n' Roll theme. corushotels.com/london OTONO NETWORKS WAKULLA COUNTY TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL CORUS HOTEL HYDE PARK N estled on the Big Bend of the Florida Panhandle, Wakulla County is an easy-on-the-eyes wonderland that's still in its original state. Kayakers and canoeists head to the Apalachee Bay Maritime Heritage Paddling Trail system while hikers and birdwatchers explore 160 kilometres of the Florida National Scenic Trail that winds its way through the county. Motorists can take in the natural splendour along the beautiful Big Bend Scenic Byway where huge old oak trees drip with Spanish moss. Other gems in the area include the Apalachicola National Forest, Wakulla Springs, the circa-1679 fort at San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park, the Gulf Specimen Aquarium in Panacea and the St. Marks Lighthouse (Florida's second oldest light station) in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Wakulla County is also where to go to enjoy mullet, flounder, grouper, red snapper, cobia, blue crab and oysters as well as Old Florida favourites such as slow-cooked ribs, brisket, chicken and pork. visitwakulla.com W estJet recently announced it is increasing frequency on two of its new non-stop transat- lantic operations to London (Gatwick) from seasonal to year-round service.
