With eyes on our own shores, 2020 could be the best year yet for the staycation. It’s a term that we hear a lot, but there really has never been a better time to explore the UK, with London as top choice for the mini break that has it all. The extensive list of sights and attractions
that change with the seasons, mean that no trip to London is ever the same.
Stay at One Aldwych to be in the heart of the action. Our Covent Garden neighbourhood is made for strolling. From the hotel’s doorstep wander through the market piazza with its daring street performers, excellent restaurants and historic streets and courtyards. Skip the scrum of the high street for some sensational shopping in Covent Garden’s mix of independent boutiques and interesting brands. Tom Ford Beauty Boutique, Petersham Nurseries and Benjamin Pollock’s Toy Shop are well worth a visit whilst in London.
The West End will soon sound out again with music, drama and dance. Turn your staycation into a One Aldwych theatre break with assistance from our friendly Concierge. As well as world-renowned opera and ballet at the neighbouring Royal Opera House and London Coliseum, guests are spoilt for choice between the latest musicals and plays on stage nearby and some of the country’s longest-running productions. Did you know that the whodunnit Mousetrap has been puzzling audiences for 67 years, whilst family favourite Disney’s The Lion King has been in light for over twenty years.
Venture just outside of Covent Garden to catch the latest exhibits at the world-class National Gallery, British Museum and Tate Modern. Smaller arts venues such as Somerset House and the Hayward Gallery can provide more intimate experiences and a dash of thought-provoking culture.
So whether you fancy eating your way around the world courtesy of the exciting flavours served up in the capital or marvelling at London’s leading landmarks, enjoy a UK city break at the luxurious One Aldwych. Master mixologists, world-class design, fabulous food and downtime in the sublime spa combine to restore anyone making the most of an action-packed weekend break in London.
