25 Things Women Should Know About London

Spa-aahing ...
Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden is run by women for women. I like the Day Spa Program at £50.00 with use of all the facilities plus a sleep area - perfect when I want to recharge my batteries and get away from it all without leaving the city.

 

See the sights from the Thames River...
There's a boat service from Tate Britain to Tate Modern (free entry to both these museums). This way you can relax between two cultural treats and take in the sights of London from the River Thames.

 

Cable car across the Thames ...
Feeling adventurous? Check out London's new cable car across the River Thames. Apparently more women are doing this than men. Check out the fabulous view right here!

 

Emergency services ...
In the UK, dial 999.

 

A tiny peaceful place ...
Escape the pace of our frenetic city in this tiny spot, Walbrook Gardens. Welsh exiles will appreciate the memorial to Catrin Glyndwr.

 

Pre-theatre dinner ...
Here's a list of restaurants that offer special rates and they make sure that you are served on time. I like Bocca di Lupo for its location, great food and laid back atmosphere and, oh yes, it's very trendy!

 

Window shopping ...
Harvey Nichols has been located on the same corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street since the 1880s and it is famous for its inspiring shop windows. They are truly works of art. Good loos too. Check 'em both out.

 

The perfect brunch ...
Last but not least -What's my idea of the perfect brunch? Kippers with marmalade on ciabatta toast. Weird I know but there's a place in London that panders to my whims, the High Road Brasserie. Located in the heart of Chiswick, west London, surrounded by interesting boutique shops, it's the local hot spot to people watch. Insider tip: get there early on Saturday and Sunday mornings as it gets busy. For those with more usual breakfast tastes they also do a magnificent full English breakfast, Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon with scrambled eggs, all the usual favourites. With indoor and outdoor seating all year, it's my favourite spot to relax and watch the world go by. Website: www.brasseriehighroadhouse.co.uk

 

Reader's Bonus Tip - Great Coffee in London...

Many people associate London, and Great Britain as a whole, more with tea than with any other beverage. However, because of the influx of residents from Australia and New Zealand, a rich culture has now developed around the artful preparation of a good 'cup of Joe'. For a flavorful sip in a musical surround, head to Notes just off busy Trafalgar Square; plan to stay a while! For a cold brew that will make you believe in chilled coffee, make your way to Prufrock on either Leather Lane or Shoreditch High Street. If simplicity is what you're looking for, you will find it at Nude Espresso in Brick Lane. However, if excellent dessert and a Flat White are what you crave then you will find them at Milk Bar on Bateman Street in SoHo. Whatever you do, don't even think about ordering an Americano in any of these shops."
