Visiting the UK
London. The name alone sounds regal. This city is dripping with history and culture and that’s just the surface. If you want the lap of luxury London has it to offer, she will hand it to you on a silver platter or maybe even a golden one.
No trip to London is complete without shopping from the likes of Chanel and tiffany’s , to the exquisite wine shop at Selfridges. Looking for a quick treat? Stop at the famous Fortnum & Mason for the most delicious biscuits in town on Oxford St. or if you prefer to hang with the “cool” crowed pop over to Camden Market food stands where you can get everything from a Mexican feast to some of the best Korean BBQ that is anything short of fabulous.
Once a quick bite is inside you stop over to the Tower of London for a very nice royal visit to see her majesty’s crown Jewels among other exciting interesting stories that the towers tell hidden inside their walls. If history isn’t your thing hop a black cab to Westminster and stand in the presence of London’s most famous resident “Big Ben”. Make sure to be there on the hour so you can hear him sing…well bong.
Work up a big appetite after all that exploring? Stop at one of London’s top places to dine such as the Greenhouse with it’s relaxing atmosphere, a tree lined entry way, and only about £170 a head. If French food is not your forte try the Savoy for a bit more of a British experience with one of the best roast dinners around. Savory is owned by one of Britain’s most famous chefs Gordon Ramsay.
After a day of site seeing and shopping of course you want to rest your weary feet on a mattress that feels like a cloud. London is birthing short of luxurious Five Star rest stops such as the Four seasons on Park Lane or Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard. Maybe you are looking for that funky new age luxury, try London’s newest hotel in the game the Citizen M over on Tower Hill. You will not be disappointed with the friendly staff and the amazing views of the roof top bar.
Maybe you are not quite tired just yet and are looking for one last thing to end your night. Box seats at Royal Albert Hall for a show or maybe it’s a nice night front row tickets at Twickenham for a rugby match tickles your fancy. Still not your thing then pop into one of London’s traditional palms for a pint of the good stuff and maybe a plate of salty chips. You may even make a friend while you are there. Londoners are known to be very friendly.
This city has something for everyone you will never get bored and after a visit you will always carry a piece of it with you. So make sure to add this amazing city to your bucket list. You won’t be disappointed. London calling.
“If you are tired of London you are tired of life” Samuel Johnson
