Lovers of luxury are sure to enjoy a visit to London, and the New Year is a fantastic time to arrive. From indulgent restaurants to designer boutiques, luxurious spaces, spas and much more, the UK’s capital has everything you need to take a great holiday as a couple…
Luxury Shopping Districts
While you’re making the most of our special deals on London hotels in the New Year, you can also indulge yourselves with some luxury shopping! London is famous around the world for having several luxury-oriented shopping districts and large department stores targeted at a market where indulgence is key, so you have lots to choose from.
Mayfair includes lots of places to indulge in some high-end retail therapy or your love of art, while the trendy King’s Road is a stylish and fashionable area where you’ll find the likes of Peter Jones and Habitat, as well as an impressive antiques market. Bond Street is also a superb starting point, as everything in this area of the city screams indulgence. Home to exclusive brands, fine jewellery and antiques, it’s also a space where you’ll find several Royal Warrant Holders – and it doesn’t get much more indulgent than shopping at the same retailer as the Queen.
Traditional Afternoon Tea
There’s nothing quite like enjoying a delicious afternoon tea during your stay in London, and at the Chilworth, our restaurant provides just that. Cosily situated in bright, modern surroundings, we take an uncomplicated approach to dining. The Chilworth London Afternoon Tea harks back to a bygone era, with everything from a classic afternoon tea featuring baked scones, finger sandwiches and mini-cakes, to a new twist on tradition with a chocolate theme, or an adventurous Indian afternoon tea. Our range of teas has been carefully selected to accompany the dishes, or you can add a glass of champagne for a celebratory spin.
Many of us set new health and wellness goals in the New Year, and if that sounds like you, the Chilworth boutique spa will help you start 2019 with a spring in your step. Treatments are carefully tailored to your goals and delivered by trained therapists. An express massage, facial or one of our body rituals ensures you’re ready to face the city, and the year ahead, refreshed and energised.
Indulgent Department Stores
If you prefer to stay under one roof rather than roaming the streets of London, then you’re also in luck. Liberty was first founded in 1874, and has since developed an enviable reputation as a traditional store which still retains a suitably pioneering spirit. The beauty hall is fantastic if you’re looking for gifts, while there’s a wide range of stunning homewares for couples seeking to redecorate in January. Harrods is another London mainstay, with everything from technology to fashion and food on offer. There are a wide range of specialist concierge-style services available throughout the store, so you can both indulge yourselves while you shop.
