London has long been the home of Emmett London and it is with very good reason we have long resided here. From the art to the architecture, the food to the fashion, London is a one of a kind city which one should pursue regular visits to.
Art In London
London is the destination for men with a fine-tuned taste for all which is first class in life. The capital boasts a plethora of institutes in which you can browse some of the most exquisite and excellent art pieces.
Here you can find our favourite galleries to visit to garner inspiration:
For contemporary art, there is nothing quite like entering the doors of Charles Saatchi’s personal art collection located on Kings Road. Here you can indulge in some contemporary art from up and coming artists, of whom you may not have heard of but certainly will not forget.
Over two separate museums, you are sure to find something to delight your senses at either the Tate Modern or Tate Britain.
Tate Britain, located in Millbank, houses an impressive collection of British art ranging from the 1500s all the way to the present day. Hundreds of years of timeless pieces are proudly hung upon these walls just waiting to get lost in a visual journey through history.
The Tate Modern
If modern and international art is more your spectacle, then the Tate Modern is for you. Located in the former Bankside Power Station, this London art gallery is home to work from all around the world. Here you can find pieces by great artists such as Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Rothko, Pollock, Dali and Warhol.
Where To Walk LondonA Joy of London lies in the ease with which one can escape the buzz of the city, and escape to be in nature.
Primrose HillWhen the weather is on the side, which of course is unpredictable in traditional London fashion, Primrose Hill is a beautiful spot to explore and discover tranquillity. When compared with its two neighbouring parks, Hyde and Regents, Primrose Hill is a relatively small park. This just adds to its appeal making it small and quaint enough for an enjoyable stroll. Its views of London are breathtaking and the walk-in nature is perfect for clearing your head.
Kew GardensWhether you are new to London or not, a trip to Kew Gardens is a must. Also known as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a picturesque natural haven like no other. In fact, it is difficult to believe this enchanting environment is just a mere stone's throw from the hustle-bustle of London. From the Victorian glasshouses to the Alpine rock garden, this truly is a must for anyone who settles on nothing less than remarkable.

Home to an exceptional array of men’s tailors, we are proud to have two stores which are home to men’s formal and casual shirts as well as bespoke tailoring service here in London.
King Road Chelsea"From King Charles’ waistcoat to Mary Quant’s miniskirt, the idea of reinvention is built into the very fabric of Kings Road"
These words are not only wise but also immensely true. Kings Road spans over a mile, covers 5 districts and has always been home to iconic scenes here in London. It has always been a road regarded with prestige and in high esteem and continues to evolve, setting new standards. In fact, it is such an elite road, it was previously reserved for the use of Kings Charles II, hence its given name ‘Kings Road’. The area since has become a home from home for creatives, their crafts and impeccable items to acquire from specialists quite like nowhere else.
It is at 380 Kings Road, you will find the home of Emmett Shirts, Emmett London. Here you can peruse the delights of some of the finest tailoring in the world, or indulge in a ‘Made To Measure’ service.
