Exploring the Tuileries Garden is one of the essential elements of a visit to Paris. This tranquil place of greenery, ponds, fountains and statues also has two museums in its grounds; all that is left of the royal residence that once stood there. Just a 20 minute walk along the rue de Rivoli or 10 minutes by Metro from the Hotel Britannique, this public garden is the largest and oldest in the capital and boasts an illustrious history.
The fashions of the late 40s and 50s possessed a certain style and elegance that was both distinctive and aesthetically appealing. With their clear demarcation of masculine and feminine looks they were also inherently romantic, a quality that we here at the Hotel Britannique enthusiastically endorse. Therefore we have no hesitation in recommending a new exhibition at the Palais Galliera museum of fashion.
Paris Plages (Paris Beaches) turn the banks of the Seine into a summer resort. Sandy beaches are created on which to relax, free concerts are staged in the evenings and a wide selection of activities are made available.

Things to do currently in Paris are many, varied and, above all, of superlative quality. You can choose amongst the numerous fascinating exhibition options on offer.

This collection of masterpieces is rarely, if ever, on public view.

The magic that is Montmartre can be easily reached by bus or Metro from the Hotel Britannique.
