Maybe it will inspire you for a great day in one of the most amazing cities in Europe.
Breakfast at The Ritz
Why not start your day as you mean to go on, with a visit to one of London’s finest eating places; The Ritz in Piccadilly. This wonderful hotel is the perfect way to start your day, whether you fancy something substantial such as Eggs Benedict or their famous Haddock Monte Carlo, or perhaps something lighter from the continental breakfast menu. Whatever your choice, breakfast at the Ritz is a great way to start your day.
Shopping in Shepherd Market
With your hunger satisfied, this is the perfect time to do a spot of shopping; something which London offers in abundance. Perhaps the most famous shop in London is Harrods of Knightsbridge; however, if you are looking for something intimate and unique, you may want to consider a visit to Shepherd Market in Mayfair. It is a place with an interesting history, but today is the home to many exclusive shops such as Bill Amberg Luxury Bags and Simon Carter Men’s Accessories, as well as numerous restaurants and Victorian style pubs.
Football at Stamford Bridge
By the early afternoon, you may be tempted to take a break from shopping, but rather than simply visit another restaurant; why not consider a football match. London is home to some of the world’s top football teams such as Chelsea FC. The Stamford Bridge ground, however, offers more than simply a view of the game itself. The club offers packages from the basic ‘bronze’ package, through to the luxury ‘platinum’ package which entitles you, not only to perfectly positioned luxury seats, from which to view the game, but also champagne and pre match three course fine dining. Other great city’s in England with popular football teams are Birmingham and Liverpool.
The Royal Opera House
If, after the match, you would like to experience one of London’s top cultural events; The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden may be just the thing for you. The Royal Opera House is the permanent home of The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera who both perform on a regular basis at this wonderful venue, right in the heart of Covent Garden. This is truly an experience not to be missed, even if you don’t consider yourself an opera or ballet fan.
Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club
If you prefer your entertainment to be a little more up-tempo, or, if you would simply like to enjoy some late night entertainment, London has one of the world’s legendary Jazz clubs in Ronnie Scott’s. Named after the late musician himself; Ronnie Scott’s is based in Frith Street, Soho, and has been home to almost all of the Jazz legends that have ever performed. This late night venue is a perfect way to end your evening, before retiring to your london hotel suites for the night.
