Experience the exclusive things that London has to offer. Whether you want to dine like a VIP in a swanky restaurant or want to see the city in a different way, these luxury things to do in London will tick all your boxes.
The British capital has a long history of indulgence. From shopping in luxury boutiques and dining in Michelin-starred restaurants on the elegant streets of Mayfair to pampering spas and exclusive bars. With a touch of historic luxury at our Clermont hotels and the option to travel in style, this is our guide to a few unique luxury days out in London.
London Eye champagne tasting capsule
Don’t just queue, then take the 30-minute with the masses, fast-track your way to the VIP lane and reward yourself with a glass or two of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne on the London Eye. If you’ve never been to the capital before, a London Eye champagne experience is a wonderful way to take in a 360° panoramic view. As you clink your glasses of bubbly, look over London’s iconic skyline: the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace even Windsor Castle on a clear day.
Take a helicopter tour of London
Get a bird’s eye view of London on a helicopter tour. Soar over Big Ben, see Tower Bridge over the Thames and snap aerial photographs of London’s iconic landmarks on your sightseeing London helicopter tour. Don’t forget to get a selfie of your helicopter ride over London. Pick your route, add in champagne for two or enjoy lunch at the airfield when you touch down. Just pick your luxury package and take to the skies in luxurious style.
Hire a chauffeur-driven car
Take the stress out of travelling around London and skip the tube, black cabs and red buses. Instead, sit in the back of a Rolls Royce Ghost, a Bentley Flying Spur or a Mercedes S Class. A luxury chauffeur service in London ensures your well-dressed driver will escort you to your destination and give you the grand entrance you deserve. Whether you’re attending a party, nipping from one luxury boutique to another or taking a sightseeing tour – this is how to travel in style.
Afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason
Add a dose of tradition and royal heritage to your luxury activities in London with afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason. You can sip on a cup of fine tea in the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2012.
Enjoy the ritual of crustless sandwiches, delicate cakes and fresh scones as a pianist plays a grand piano in a room that’s been a part of Fortnum’s department store for more than 300 years. It’s a luxurious ritual that feels thoroughly British and is the perfect way to spend an afternoon in the capital.
If you fancy adding in some luxury shopping, you could browse gifts in Fortnum and Mason after your afternoon tea or head to Harrods to pick up some tasty treats and visit Liberty London for those luxurious fabrics famous the world over. Continue to feel pampered and special and stay with us at The Clermont, Victoria or The Clermont, Charing Cross surrounded by London’s luxurious heritage.
