Sometimes you don’t need to travel far to have a great weekend. Traveling usually takes at least 2 days off your vacation anyway. For a moment we forget that London is one of the biggest tourist attraction for tourists and it has so much to offer but I never like to go to too restaurants or attractions that are too touristy.
Earlier in the year I had the most amazing weekend in London celebrating my husband’s birthday. We booked a hotel in the West End and it was so nice to be there as a ‘tourist’. We started our evening with a drink at the Savoy Hotel, it was the first time I visited it since the refurbishment. It’s very elegant and beautiful and no wonder where did the Millions of the renovation went for.
We ordered champagne cocktails at the Beaufort Bar . It was very tasty and was delivered nicely but I must say that the vibe in the bar was a bit cold. So after few drinks we decided to go to one of the best restaurants in London The Wolseley – http://www.thewolseley.com/ it’s always hard to get a table if you don’t book a few weeks in advance or have got personal connections with them but if you arrive later, around 10pm, there’s a very good chance that you will get a table.
We ate a few of their delicious starters and we had a few drinks and it was a nice evening. When we left the restaurant a group of paparazzi were waiting outside to take photos , we thought it was for us but it was for the iconic model Twiggy , who is in her sixties now and still looks amazing!
The next day we had a reservation at the Ivy, which is also one of the best restaurants in London. Long time in advance to get a table but the best of the best !

After the Ivy we went to watch the famous play The Mousetrap opposite the restaurant in St. Martin’s Theatre it was a perfect ending .
