After visiting London a good year or so back for the Company Blog Awards in association with Missguided I wanted to visit London again at some point around the Covent Garden area of London. After hearing my brothers fondness of the area after his visit last year it’s left me intrigued to visit for myself and try out the local cuisine and visit many of the hot spots in and around Covent Garden.
There’s nothing I enjoy more than meandering around the local parks and Hyde Park looks like a great place to start is one of the largest parks in London and a Royal park at that! I always find walking a great way to centre the mind and plan the days ahead of my visit. Shopping is something else I absolutely love and Aveda would definitely be my first place to visit alongside Charlotte Tilbury. As I mentioned the best thing about visiting new places would be the local produce and this is something I’d enjoy especially if the menus adventurous and unique.
When it comes to accommodation it’s always great to have somewhere situated central, close to local travel spots and transport; Rosewood London offers just that but at a more higher end price range. Occupying a restored Edwardian Mansion this luxury hotel would make for the perfect romantic break away with its original belle epoque elements and contemporary designs. If however, you are looking for something more lower budget you can find lots of different price range hotels and B&B’s for a more casual stay. My partner goes to the gym on a daily basis and I also enjoy going from time to time! I’m hoping to get more into a routine and sign up for a yearly membership. Gyms make for a great hotel feature, especially in the evenings or first thing in the morning before heading out for the day. I always enjoy the steam rooms as they make the perfect me time and I always make sure to put on a face mask and hair mask before entering the room for the ultimate pampering treatment. Kyle and I always make full use of the Gyms at hotels when away and if we’re lucky they have a pool area too! It’s a great bonus especially if you don’t watch much TV or prefer to be more active during your break away.
With so many places to see and visit I would definitely recommend getting an Oyster Card in advance if your planning on travelling to London for a break, this makes travel much easier and less hassle.
