A Chillled Out Weekend in London
London is a wonderful city to visit especially for weekend break. Your visit to the big smoke can be as relaxed or as fast-paced as you like. Personally, being a tea-swilling Brit introvert like I am – I like to enjoy my country’s capital at a more chilled out pace.
Seeing a West End show is a must whilst in London. There are many, many wonderful shows to enjoy. There are highly popular shows like Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and Wicked choose from and many family shows such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Billy Elliot-The Musical. To make your night at the theatre truly special you could use Blacklane, a well-known, global Chauffeur Service to pick you up from your accommodation and take you to the theatre. Blacklane are an affordable car service and you could also use their service to pick you up from the airport when you arrive in London.
If you want to do something romantic with your partner or have fun with your friends, The London Eye is a great destination. As you move higher around The London Eye you see for miles across the city. The difference of the view when seen at night is amazing, you see London come alive. Those who don’t like heights might think The London Eye isn’t for them but it is well worth it. You will soon forget about the height when you see the views.
If you wanted a similar view of the London skyline, The Sky Garden in London is another great destination. The Sky Garden is the highest public gardens in London and allows people to see the beautiful sights of London while you can enjoy a cocktail in the Sky Pod Bar or enjoy delicious food in the two restaurants.
If you prefer to spend your time in London with your feet firmly on the ground a beautiful park to visit is St James’s Park. St James’s Park is one of eight Royal Parks in London and is the oldest of these parks. St James’s Park is a wonderful place to take a picnic and spend time relaxing. If you did not fancy a picnic you could visit Inn the Park, a restaurant situated within St James’s Park for some seasonal food. You can also watch the beautiful pelicans enjoying their day and getting their daily feeds. The pelicans are glorious creatures that are known to interact with the public watching them.
You cannot visit London without doing some shopping of some sort! Whether you want some new designer clothes or to look around for some unique bargains, London has got what you need. You could head to Oxford Street and Bond Street for your favourite high street and luxury items. If you want to find more unique treasures, Carnaby Street and Covent Garden are great places to start. Covent Garden is also a great place to see some street art and find some beautiful artwork.
