An eating guide to Disneyworld

Mickey Mouse and Michelin; Disney and fine dining - many would agree that the two are mutually exclusive entities. When the park opened in 1971, there was little save for classic fast food joints to sate the appetites of visitors.

Review: sleeping among the clouds in Shangri-La at The Shard

Staying at Shangri-La at The Shard is an experience made up of superlatives. Renzo Piano's glassy masterpiece holds title as Western Europe's tallest building (only topped by the Mercury City Tower in Moscow). The hotel is London's highest. Its swimming pool on level 52, which opens this week, is too.

Review: British Airways London to Austin | Club World

My journey to Austin began much in the same way as the running joke in noughties blue comedy Road Trip: a phonetic confusion between Austin and Boston. "Where are you flying today, madam?" "Austin." "Great, I'll get you checked onto the flight to Boston." "No, I'm going to Austin."

Copenhagen: a guide

All eyes are on Copenhagen this month. Not only does the Eurovision Song Contest take part in the B&W Hallerne this weekend, last week saw perhaps the city's most famous offering, Noma, take the prize for the best restaurant in the world (for the fourth time since 2010).Food and song offerings aside, the city is alive with culture, design, and plenty of (Michelin and non-Michelin) eating and drinking options that make for a great city-break weekend.

Keep Austin weird: a guide to Texas' coolest city

Austin, the Lonestar state's neon-bright and beard-heavy liberal capital, is a city of superlatives. Not only does its official slogan mark it as the 'live music capital of the World', it was last year the fastest growing city in the entire USA (according to Forbes).
