If you’ve got a landmark birthday coming up and are looking for the perfect way to celebrate it, why not venture to our capital city, London?
There’s something for everyone, whether you want to do the iconic sights or you fancy trying something a little more quirky.
Here are some great ideas:
Visit a Landmark for Your Landmark Birthday
If it’s a special birthday this year, why not make sure you’re celebrating this landmark occasion by visiting one of the world’s most talked about landmarks?
One thing’s for sure, London has plenty of these, including the London Eye (find cheaper tickets at places like Discount London), the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace… the list goes on. Plus, you might just be able to add extra-special twists into your visit, e.g. champagne for your ride on the London Eye!
See a Show
Do you love going to the theatre?
Then there’s nothing quite like visiting the West End to see one of your favourite shows, or something new and exciting that’s just started touring. Make it a special occasion by booking yourself a balcony seat or by adding a meal in before the show.
Dine Out in Style
If you’re a self-confessed foodie, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat in London. Choose from quirky cuisines that you’ve never tried before or go all out with a Michelin-star dining experience.
London’s renowned for its plethora of Michelin-star restaurants, including Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, The Araki, and Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester.
Learn Something New
Feel like now’s the time to be learning a new skill or trying something you’ve never done before? Then why not book yourself onto one of London’s fun courses. From a cookery class that’ll turn you into a domestic goddess to a pottery making class that’ll have you re-enacting the scene from Ghost, there are so many cool classes going on around London all of the time.
Do Something Daring
Want your birthday to go with a bang? Then it could be time to do something really daring like bungee jumping from the top of the O2 arena or abseiling in the Olympic Park – the possibilities are endless and are, quite literally, breath-taking!
If you fancy a wild night out, London’s night scene is just waiting to take you under its wing. From hip new bars to raving dance clubs, there’s something for all music tastes and ages.
And if you feel too old for the clubbing scene there are still lots of quiet bars and cool pubs with live music that you can venture to enjoy a relaxing night with family and friends.
Finally, if you need to recover from a heavy night (or your daredevil experiences), London can also be one of the most relaxing places on earth. Discover spas, sun-soaked roof terraces and river cruises that’ll have you whiling away the hours in contented bliss.
