London has a never-ending wealth of experiences to discover and, when you go beyond the tourist trail, you’ll find a number of unique and unusual things to see and do. Here are some creative ideas for unique experiences in the capital.
HAVE A FOODIE FEAST
London now boasts a street food scene to rival the best of them. Chief among them is Kerb – located in Cubitt Square and offering a mouth-watering selection of London’s very best street food vendors. Stalls are hand selected to be a part of this collective – meaning you should expect only the very best. If you are looking for a unique and delicious lunch, this is a foodie paradise with plenty of lip-smacking options inspired by cuisines from all over the world.
ENJOY A LUXURIOUS COUPLE’S MASSAGE
For some unique bonding time, why not treat yourselves to a luxurious couple’s massage at the gorgeous Sense Spa in the five star Rosewood London hotel? Take a cab over to Holborn, where your 60 minute massage will feature a private steam shower as well as use of the gold leaf and teak relaxation lounge.
JOIN LONDON’S CRAFT BEER REVOLUTION
The craft beer craze has gone nuts in London over the past few years, with thousands of microbreweries now open in the capital. Now you can hop on over to north London’s The Hops & Glory – microbrewery and pub – for a taste of the revolution.
Here their resident beer experts introduce the finest craft beers from all over the world – from pale ales to Trappist beers – matched with complementing pub nibbles.
MAKE YOUR OWN LINE OF PERFUME
Imagine having your own personal fragrance created by the oldest perfume shop in the UK. Founded in 1730, by Juan Floris, Floris of London is still today a family business. Having provided perfume for the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, the Queen, Kate Middleton and Florence Nightingale, it’s fair to say they know what makes a great scent. Work with the expert perfumer to choose a base fragrance, then layer other scents on top of it until you create a one of a kind aroma just for you.
TASTE THE BEST OF LONDON WITH SUPPER CLUB
Across London more and more supper clubs are sprouting to connect food lovers with adventurous dining experiences all over the city. From pop-up events to special dinners in exclusive locations, search the likes of Grub Club or Banquet for an occasion that suits you.
These are just a few of the unique and exciting events and activities that you can enjoy in London. Head over to TRULY for more extraordinary experiences.
