If you’re in London on business and have a relatively short amount of time to experience this vibrant city, then why not do it in style? Here’s our top picks of the most luxurious experiences near our serviced apartments in London:
1) The London Eye Experience
Not just your average big wheel fair ride, the London eye offers unparalleled views across London. To make your visit to this top tourist attraction a little more luxurious, choose the Champagne experience and let the bubbles take you to dizzy heights or for any chocolate lovers try the Hotel Chocolat experience.
You can’t come to London and not experience some of the most famous department stores in the world! First stop, Knightsbridge and the renowned Harrods store where their motto is ‘Omnia Omnibus Ubique’, Latin for ‘All Things for All People’ and all people need a diamond PG tips teabag, a bespoke designer yacht and a crystal bath tub. Once you’ve placed your orders at Harrods, head over to Liberty on Regent Street to explore this emporium of eclectic antiques and furnishings in an iconic Tudor building. Completing your tour of the greatest department stores of London is of course, Selfridges on Oxford Street. When the store was opened in 1909, Harry Gordon Selfridge was quoted saying, ‘I am prepared to sell anything from an aeroplane to a cigar’.
You’ll be spoilt for choice for high quality, Michelin star restaurants in London. Le Gavroche is the two starred restaurant run by Michel Roux Jnr which serves up classically rich French haute cuisine. The dining room hasn’t changed much since the restaurant opened with decadent heavy wood panelling and gleaming silverware. For something a little more modern, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay has three Michelin stars and provides elegant, modern French cuisine. Book the Inspiration table for a private dining experience where you can watch as your dishes come to life.
Relax in one of London’s luxurious day spas. Ushvani Spa in Chelsea is a Malaysian day spa situated in a beautiful Georgian townhouse, perfect for a day of pampering. The awarding winning day spa offers 90 minute massages from different regions in Asia, all offering their own unique style of massage. If you’re looking to treat someone then the Asmara suite offers its own steam room and deep sunken stone bath with hydrotherapy jets.
5) Club Wembley
For something a little different, why not treat yourself to one of the hospitality packages from Club Wembley. The stadium hosts a range of events including live music and sports fixtures. The hospitality packages vary, but they usually include waiter service, champagne and dinner.
