Travel

London's finest.

The purpose of a hotel, at its primal core, is to provide a place to rest one’s head. Yet, under the cover of night, a time of relaxation for most is not a time of relaxation for others. At Claridge’s hotel in central London’s Mayfair neighbourhood, this holds especially true.

Tofino bound.

Sometimes it’s the journey. Sometimes it’s the destination. Sometimes it’s both. Tofino is a natural paradise in itself but it’s worth a visit simply for the drive.

Market to market.

Housed within two glass warehouse buildings designed by architect Hans Peter Hagens, Torvehallerne is Copenhagen’s most popular public market and the city’s first central food hall.

Raw beauty.

Todd Saunders has made his mark by turning the middle of nowhere into somewhere. His architecture—bare, sculptural, conductive—amplifies place like a microphone set in the landscape, making both built space and the place it’s in palpably present. Designed by Saunders, the Fogo Island Inn opened last summer on a beautiful Newfoundland island.

Antarctic trek.

Crawling down the hall, gripping the handrails, guests are between a cartwheel and a handstand as they make their way down to dinner. The boat is at full tilt, on its side. It’s an interesting start to an Antarctic cruise.

A city landmark.

A stone’s throw away from the CN Tower and in the middle of the city’s downtown core is the Ritz-Carlton Toronto, posh and proper as only a Ritz property can be.

Storm watching on the edge of the world.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: Some of us like nothing better than the rain and the pounding surf. We’re here, savouring rustic elegance on the edge of the world—at the Wickaninnish Inn.

Tech town 2.0.

Northern California’s Silicon Valley been synonymous with tech industry innovations since the early 1980s, but now the tech set is moving north to Seattle’s South Lake Union district.

Luxe Cabos.

The One&Only Palmilla: an expansive beachfront retreat that continues to define—and immortalize—Mexico glamour. Designed as an intimate waterfront hacienda for the mid-20th century’s rising rich and famous, the initial structures of One&Only Palmilla attracted 1950s Hollywood royalty like Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, and John Wayne.
