Once your flight to London touches down, you will not want to waste valuable moments in getting from the airport into the city center. Traveling from A to B, and then indeed to C and D, in a city like London can take its time. There is simply no getting around it. However, fear not. You won’t need to jump on one of London’s famous red buses unless of course, you want to, and you will not need to test the Tube trains, also known as the London Underground. London has a host of high-end chauffeur companies catering to all of your needs, which can be booked in advance. From Sixt, Europe’s oldest car service company, to Carey UK and Crawfords of London, there is a multitude of chauffeur services available to see the city in style, all without having to hail a Hackney Carriage or wait for public transport.
Once you have established how you’re going to get around the capital, there is so much to see and do. Shopping should be high on anyone’s list whilst visiting London. On the world-famous Bond Street you will find some of the most prestigious retailers like Jimmy Choo and Carat London, and over at Dover Street Market, created by Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons, lies everything from Hussein Chalayan to Vetements to Valentino.
If you would rather venture somewhere a little quieter for your retail therapy, why not try a trip to Mayfair’s Mount Street. One of London’s most stylish destinations, the avenue is home to a range of luxury boutiques and restaurants, including Balenciaga and Scott’s, arguably one of the capital’s best seafood restaurants.
Undoubtedly, one of the most spectacular ways to see London, and to make for a trip you will never forget, is to take to the skies and see it by helicopter. With a range of helicopter experiences available from several companies in the city, most journeys last approximately 50 minutes and will take you over all the famous London landmarks everyone wants to see. Beating the crowds, you float between the clouds, passing The Shard, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and much more.
If it is the London Eye you love, why not try one of their champagne pods experience? Or make it extra special in a Cupid’s Capsule; sampling Pommery Brut Royal Champagne and pink champagne truffles, all the while taking in the best of London’s skyline with your special someone.
Following this, you are sure to need a feast, and the eateries of London are here to ensure you dine like royalty for the duration of your stay. If it’s sushi that gets you salivating, Sushi Samba is the place to go. With a few locations around the city, by far the most impressive is the Heron Tower branch. Go here for 360-degree views of the city at the highest outdoor dining terraces in Europe, 39 floors up. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, you simply have to sample one of the bistros at The Dorchester Hotel; London’s most refined culinary delights, from sublime dining experiences to good old fashioned comfort food, The Dorchester way.
After a long day of taking in the finest sites the city has to offer, why not kick back with a glass of something fizzy and enjoy some of the finest spa treatments in the world? May Fair Spa offers you a meticulously tailored experience as they aim to fully understand your wellbeing and health before advising you of what treatments would work best for you. Across town in Knightsbridge, The Bvlgari Hotel Spa is frequently deemed one of the hotels’ finest achievements. They have created a selection of the most advanced beauty, grooming and health treatments available.
From one-off treatments to their long term life improvement programs, there is something to get even the most stressed traveler all unwound and relaxed.
