I hope I’ve inspired you for a trip to London with my last post giving you some tips to experience my favourite city like a local. If you’re planing a day to treat yourself in the capital, here are some ideas of what you can do.
Where to start from?
If Euston is the train station where you arrive and you’re wondering where to start from, why don’t you go for a little walk in Regent’s Park. Housing the Open Air Theatre, London Zoo, Primrose Hill, the country’s largest free to access waterfowl collection and 100 species of wild birds, it’s a great place to explore and recharge your batteries.
Depending on how your feet feel, you can take a 10-minute walk to Oxford Street or jump on the tube for one stop and get to the place made for shopping. On Oxford street you will find most international high street shops, a huge number of designer boutiques and department stores like Selfridges.
When you come out of Selfridges, you’re just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Hyde Park. You can explore the beautiful architecture of Mayfair and find a nice little restaurant for lunch with some bubbly.
After a dreamy shopping haul and a nice relaxing lunch, it’s time for a beauty treatment in one of Paddington’s Hair Salons.
Contrasti Hair & Beauty have been awarded for style, innovation and their signature attention to detail. They can create for you luscious, gorgeous natural looks with the latest haircut and colour techniques that you can hardly find in any other hairdresser. Another cultured beauty salon in the heart of Paddington is Gold Hair with over four decades of experience and tradition. If you’re more after a beauty treatment, then make an appointment with Glamour beauty who will unveil your natural beauty with their friendly approach.
After you’ve enjoyed being spoilt, let the tube take you to Knightsbridge where you can visit Harrods or get yourself lost in one of the small cafes of Belgravia.
