With Christmas over and only the long year ahead of us to look forward to, it is no surprise that many want to get some excitement in the diary. London is a favourite day out for the whole country and further afield but after you have done the usual activities – what is there to keep you coming back year on year? The answer? Many great London restaurant deals, hotel deals and cheap travel offers and of course an abundance of activities that are different from the usual shopping trip down Oxford Street. Here is a run down of some of the most fun…
Afternoon tea for two
What could be more enjoyable after a busy walk around one of the busiest sightseeing spots than enjoying a serene afternoon tea in one of London’s fanciest hotels? Dine upon egg mayonnaise or cucumber sandwiches, freshly baked scones and cream cakes all washed down with loose leafed tea or a glass of bubbly if you are really spoiling yourself! Although this may sound decadent, a number of the capital’s most swanky hotels offer great deals perfect for two people that won’t break the bank.
Private cinema screening
We’ve all envisioned it: cameras flashing as we step from a shiny black car onto a red carpet to excited cheers from hoards of fans…well, unfortunately you can’t build a Hollywood film career overnight but you can attend an exclusive film screening. There are fantastic deals out there that offer screenings of classic films like “Silence of the Lambs”, “Pride and Prejudice” and “The English Patient” in comfortable surroundings. The perfect way to unwind after a busy afternoon wrestling the crowds on the South Bank!
Relax and unwind with a spa experience
You’ve travelled all this way and haven’t you been carrying those heavy bags for most of the day? In this case, you know what the doctor ordered…a little pampering! If you shop around you will be able to find some great value spa deals dotted around London where you can get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a facial or full-body massage. If it’s okay for all of those WAG’s, then it’s more than okay for you!
Cocktails somewhere swanky
Now we know that you aren’t in New York but London still has its fair share of bars where you can sip on martini’s and feel like a character from Sex and the City! Unfortunately, these delicious drinks can set you back a pretty penny but if you research where to go to find good happy hours or snap up an experience day, you could sample a few tipples all for a very reasonable price and maybe even some food thrown in. So, what’s it going to be? A Cosmopolitan? How about a Manhattan? Well if you can’t beat em…
