Combine a Christmas shopping trip to the West End’s luxury retail quarter with a visit to a bespoke new homes gallery in Berkeley Square. Behind a discreet Downing Street-style high-gloss black door, developer St George’s new showroom is a marble-floored space with interactive models of the company’s London projects, which can be viewed on a giant screen.
Under one roof, you can study specification details and floor plans and even get simulated views from particular apartments such as those at One Blackfriars, pictured, a new 50-storey skyscraper being built on the South Bank.
Walk-ins are welcome between 10am and 6pm and by appointment at weekends, while a chauffeur can pick you up from your home, your hotel, or even from the train station or airport, to visit the showroom and chosen developments. Call 0808 178 2000.
