We all need some time to relax and be pampered now and then. With life being stressful, hectic and constantly moving, we barely have time to stop and treat ourselves, especially if we have children to look after. Therefore, a weekend in London could be the perfect getaway, which won’t cost you the extortionate price that a trip abroad would. Due to a weekend only being two days long (or three if you have pushed the boat out and arranged a long weekend away), you need to know before you get on the train to the capital, how you are going to pamper yourself in 48 hours. We have carefully put together some ideas so you can truly make the most out of your little escape.
Whether at a facial Richmond clinic or another facial clinic in London, your face deserves a treat, and with there being so many different facial treatments available, you can rest assured that there will be one that suits all your needs and requirements. If you suffer from acne, scarring, or you just want your wrinkles smoothed out, facials can help to brighten your skin in addition to evening out your skin’s texture to give you that glowing complexion that you desire.
#2 Enjoy A Spa Break
With a variety of spa breaks available across London, you can choose the one that appeals to you the most – and your bank balance! Allow your whole body to relax for a day, or two, and have a luxurious full body massage. Why not give foot reflexology a go? After all, if you are on your feet seven days a week, they deserve some love!
#3 Fancy Meal
You don’t have to stay at a spa and have massages or facials in order to pamper yourself. Getting dressed up, throwing away your everyday work clothes and having a fancy meal in a posh restaurant, or afternoon tea at the Ritz can be a real treat that you and your body deserves. This is a lovely afternoon activity to do with a group of girlfriends, who also need to relax. If the Ritz is a little out of reach for your funds, then you will be delighted to know that there are many gorgeous tea shops, where you can enjoy afternoon tea in London at very affordable prices.
#4 Champagne Tasting
How often do you get to enjoy an expensive glass of champagne (or bottle), and canapes at a tasting? Never! If you have children, then Ribena is probably one of the only drinks you have in your house! Therefore, get giggly with some friends and enjoy some bubbles, whilst tasting some of the finest sips of champagne you will ever get to try!
#5 Shopping Time
When was the last time you had a chance to go shopping on your own and take time to look at all the clothes the shop had to offer? London is home to some of the most expensive, luxurious shops, with clothes calling out for you to try on and buy! Have some retail therapy alone or with some friend, while exploring the extensive range of shops London has to offer!
#6 A Trip To The Theatre
If you are a theatre fanatic, London is the place for you to spend 48 hours in. From musicals to plays, you can choose the performance that entices you the most, and enjoy it without any screaming children in your ear. You could even watch more than one whilst you are there – just an idea! Some of the most well-known musicals, including Billy Elliot, Les Miserables, The Lion King and Wicked, are just a few of the spectacular shows for you to choose from. If you love going to the theatre, then you are truly spoilt for choice!
Hopefully these ideas will give you an insight into some of the ways you can pamper yourself whilst spending 48 hours in London. Decide what you want to do in the capital in advance, so you can book it and avoid facing any disappointment. Happy pampering!
