If you’re visiting LA, here are our tips for some of the best places to go – not just for an indulgent experience, but for a chance to spot more than a few famous faces.Brentwood Country Mart
Head to this luxury retail village for a great mix of fabulous shopping, lovely dining and a family atmosphere.

A stay – or even a meal – at The Four Seasons is likely to put you in the same building as some instantly-recognisable celebrities. One of the best hotels in LA, it features beautiful interiors, hand-designed suites, a stunning pool and spa, and the Culina restaurant, which is a favourite for many A-listers. You could see stars such as Morgan Freeman or Orlando Bloom hanging out here.

If you want to take in some classic American sport during your stay, then head for the Staples Center, home to both the Lakers and the Clippers basketball teams. Here, for a big game, you could easily catch sight of some of LA’s sporting enthusiast stars, such as Denzel Washington or Jack Nicholson. And if sport’s not your thing (book well ahead if it is) you could also end up seeing your favourite celebrity at a big gig, also hosted at the Center.
