London is one of those places that you want to travel to again and gain, simply because the capital has so much to offer. Every time you visit London, you can have a different experience – that’s the beauty of such a big, multicultural city – and one of the best experiences you can have in London is undoubtedly the luxury experience.
If next time you’re in the UK’s capital, you feel like treating yourself to some of the finer things in life, here are some ideas for indulging in luxury in London:
Stay at a Luxury Hotel
The great thing about London is that it is home to a whole lot of excellent four and five-star hotels like the Dorsett City Hotel and The Beaumont. If you want to experience true luxury, splash out and stay in one of them for one of the best night’s sleep you’ll ever have guaranteed.
Shop ‘Til You Drop in Harrods
Unless you’ve got deep pockets or a full purse, then it might have to be browsing until you drop, rather than shopping, but no luxury London experience could be complete without a visit to the famous luxury store Harrods, and you might be surprised by the reasonable prices of some of its offerings. Be sure to buy something small to treat yourself, and so you can get your hands on a much-coveted Harrods bag.
Relax at the Spa at The Mandarin Oriental
The luxury spa at this even more luxurious hotel is regularly voted the number one city spa in London. Spend a few hours within its calming, therapeutic walls, and after you’ve had aromatherapy treatments, spent some time in the Vitality Pool and sweated out all of your toxins in the Crystal Steam Room, you’ll feel like a whole new woman.
Take Tea at the Ritz
Taking traditional afternoon tea at The Ritz is about as British and as luxurious as it gets. In this fine hotel establishment, you will be treated like a queen as you are invited to sample some of the most delicious, and daintiest scones and sandwiches you’ve ever tasted, not to mention some pretty tasty pastries too. Dress up nice and make an afternoon of it for an experience you’ll never forget.
Have Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
If it’s luxury you want, then dining out at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, although it isn’t exactly cheap, is exactly what you should endeavour to do. Why? Not only is this Michelin-starred restaurant sure to fill your belly with a tasty meal, but it will exceed your expectations and surprise you with its unique offerings. You’ll be blown away by the sheer decadence and inventiveness of it all!
Quaff Champagne at Voltaire
The epitome of luxury is surely the champagne bar, and Voltaire certainly does not disappoint. This beautiful bar, which is home to the biggest selection of Pommery champagne in the city, features it’s own vaults, complete with iPod docks for up to 12 people so that you can enjoy the best champers, the best company and the best music in luxurious surroundings.
Add these to your London itinerary, and you won’t ever want to come back!
