If you’re planning to visit London in the near future, you’re in for the experience of a lifetime. London is a completely unique city with a culture and atmosphere all of its own. One thing is for certain, you will not be short of things to do or sights to see. If anything, you may well find yourself with too much to squeeze in. When the busy streets and excitement gets a little too much, you should take some time out to treat yourself in a different way. You deserve to pamper yourself with some luxury from time to time, and London offers some fantastic ways to get the job done and here are just 7 to consider.
Pamper yourself at a spa
Top of the list of luxury and relaxation has to be a massage treatment at a spa such as Breathe London in Covent Garden. It’s a fantastic way to escape the buzz of the city and give your muscles the attention they deserve.
Take a helicopter ride over the city sights
If you want a taste of the movie star lifestyle, why not take a helicopter ride over the city? It’s a fantastic way to see the landmarks and take awesome photos. Find out more at the Heli Air website.
Immerse yourself in the arts
No trip to London would be complete without experiencing the arts on offer. From the incredible musicals in the West End, to plays, concerts and some of the most famous art galleries and exhibitions in the world, any art lover can find an unforgettable experience.
Join a yoga class at the top of The Shard
If yoga is your relaxation method of choice then you simply have to try a class with Yogasphere at the top of The Shard. You can center your mind and body while enjoying the unique panoramic views. On particularly hot days, the classes often take place out on the open-air deck on the 72nd floor.
Enjoy afternoon tea at the Ritz
For the ultimate in English decadence, head to the world-famous Ritz hotel for a sumptuous afternoon tea. You can put on your best clothes and fanciest accessories to enjoy delicious finger foods and refreshments. The Ritz is next door to Harrods so why not spoil yourself even more and do some shopping before or after?
Experience a professional cupcake decorating class
This idea is not necessarily everyone’s idea of luxury, but if you would enjoy learning how to decorate cupcakes with a master pâtissier, book yourself some cake decorating classes at Cake Boy. Eric Lanlard will provide a masterclass in cake decoration with breakfast, lunch and other delicious treats.
Watch a movie at the Everyman Cinema
Why spend hours in a movie theater when you’ve traveled all the way to London? Because the Everyman movie theater is not like the theaters you’re used to. Here you can lounge in comfortable sofas while eating delicious food and alcohol. Take a look at the latest listings here.
