TRAVEL || A LUXURIOUS STAY IN LONDON - WHAT TO DO IN THE CAPITAL OF UNITED KINGDOM


I, like many young women, love London for all the right reasons. It's a very multicultural city that offers luxurious stays, great shopping trips, and theatrical experiences. London is one of the oldest cities in the world, founded by early Roman settlers as a trading point, and has gone through several revolutions since ground was first broken. Now, London is known as one of the richest cities across the globe, which is reflected by the luxury that can be found when you decide to visit. To give you an insight into what sort of luxuries you can expect, this post should give you a few ideas of what to do when in London to maximise your experience. 

The Shopping.
I think that this is my favourite word in the whole universe, well this and chocolate. While most of us love a good old bargain find, there are many shops around London where you can really treat yo' self. Saville Row is filled with designer clothing stores, extravagant jewellers, and many more alike shops that will msot likely make your eyes water if you received a gift from there. Of course, if you are looking to do some luxurious shopping then you must also nip into Harrods as it's a place that has everything you might be looking for under one roof. This department store is packed to the brim with products that most people wouldn't dream of buying themselves. Hence why I tend to save up a bit before making my trip down to London.

The Dining.
Alongside the shopping, you can also find luxurious restaurants to eat at. This includes a variety of different places that are owned by celebrity chefs and other well-known figures, such as Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey. You will pretty much always have to make reservations before eating at these restaurants, especially if you are planning on visiting London over the weekend. The best way to do this is by going on the restaurant's website or calling them at least the day before your trip.

The Accommodation.
London is packed with beautiful hotels, resorts, and air bnb's you can stay at, though serviced apartments seem to be the most popular at the moment. You can find short lets here that will give you the chance to enjoy a luxury stay in London without having to mingle with other guests. Of course this type of accommodation isn't cheap but if you are truly looking for a luxurious stay then this might be it.

The Entertainment.
This is one of the most popular reasons for visiting London. The West End is a very well-known area in the world for theatre and other live performances. Alongside this, there are many bars and restaurants that offer all sorts of entertainment, from jazz clubs to comedy nights. It's definitely worht researching your favourite type of entertainment prior to your trip so you can really get the most out of visitng London. 

With all of this in mind, you should feel ready to book your trip to London and to embrace the luxuries the city has to offer. This sort of city-stay can be a bit tricky to plan with the amount of places to visit and things to see, but if you go by others' recommendations you should be able to find the perfet place for you.
