Pimlico, United Kingdom

Pimlico is the perfect example of London’s archetypal mish-mash: modern and traditional, expensive and affordable, hip and old-fashioned. A swathe of whitewashed Georgian terraces make the area feel decidedly SW1. Restaurants range from Gordon Ramsay’s on Royal Hospital Road (awarded three Michelin stars and counting), to the cheap and cheerful cafés you’ll find near Lupus Street, which do full-English breakfasts to rival any artfully arranged plate. The former Chelsea Barracks are a charming place for a morning stroll; wave to the resident Chelsea Pensioners and feel at home in this welcoming neighbourhood.
