When the rat race of London gets too much, you can retire to a peaceful sanctuary where you can unwind, relax and feel all the zen. From us to you, here are our favourite spots in town to destress. Walk this way…
Get your cosy clothes on, wrap up and take the tube on over to Kew Gardens. If you’re looking to lose yourself in a sea of Autumn colours and experience a day of peace and serenity, then this is the ideal spot. A day spent exploring the stunning gardens will leave you feeling calm, relaxed and rejuvenated.
If you want to breathe in some fresh air and do some exercise in leafy surrounds, then this will be right up your street. All classes are free and take place in your local park. Classes are led by fully qualified instructors and are suitable for all ages and ability levels. Get your sweat on and you’ll feel a million dollars afterwards!
Think you can’t swim in a lido during the colder months? Well, we have great news, this one is heated! It does not matter if you’re an early bird or a late-night owl as it’s open daily 06.30-21.00. Spend a tranquil time wallowing in beautiful surrounds. There’s also a café and a sunbathing area if you feel like catching some autumnal rays.
They say that tea makes everything better and we tend to agree. Whittard Chelsea Tea Bar in Covent Garden is the stuff of dreams. They have almost every tea you could ever think of and a specialist brew bar. If you fancy something a little sweeter, they also have the most scrumptious hot chocolates available and you can create your own with their extensive menu. They are also famous for their all-day afternoon tea so this is one tea break that you’ll never forget.
Ever wanted to watch a film on the big screen in the back garden at Alexandra Palace? Well, now you can. Harry Potter, Toy Story and V for Vendetta are a few of the films showing in October and November. As the evenings are getting a lot colder, warm blankets and picnic chairs are advised. It may be cold but it will be an exhilarating experience.
A walking tour through Hyde Park is more than just a walk in a park, it’s a walk through history as you learn and discover secrets of the past. The tours last 2 hours and cover almost 2 miles. You’ll discover there’s more to Hyde Park than meets the naked eye. Now, what are you waiting for? Walk this way…
