For further indulgence, head to “The Ritz London,” for a traditional British afternoon tea in the beautiful Palm Court dining room. They serve a selection of delightfully tasty scones, sandwiches, and cakes. Take pleasure in a lovely cup of tea, or a glass of champagne. It’s a great way to while away a couple of hours.
If you fancy going shopping, then the King’s Road, which is considered one of London’s most fashionable streets, is the place to go. The long, busy street is home to many illustrious brands, such as Calvin Klein, Rigby & Peller, and Massimo Dutti.
A great spot to enjoy a cocktail and some delicious food is the “Bluebird” bar and restaurant on the King’s Road. The iconic address is the perfect place to people-watch and have some downtime. The food is a mix of international dishes, elevated to a high standard, such as lobster mac and cheese, tiger prawn and monkfish curry, and their house burger. They also have a two or three course set menu, and a different dish of the day, with a classic British roast beef for Sunday lunch. Finish with a dessert from the extensive menu, with truly British dishes such as Eton mess or Knickerbocker glory.
