Was the royal wedding really just a week ago? Wow—what a whirlwind! I'm still obsessing over London: the palaces, the pubs, the fish and chips! If you're looking to cross the pond to honeymoon, check out One Aldwych hotel (doubles from $378 year-round). It's an easy walk to Covent Garden stores (woohoo, Whistles!), West End theaters, and Westminster Abbey—the ultimate wedding venue! The vibe's superchic but not stuffy; the staff is warm and on top of things. Even if you're not staying there, stop by for its summer Will and Kate cocktail (gin, champagne, elderflower cordial, and fresh English apple puree), which has a posh kick: edible gold sprinkles that sparkle like diamonds.
