Visit London this springtime

With winter, (almost) behind us and a little more warmth in the air, there is no better time to sample the delights that our fabulous capital can offer.   London’s world famous parks, for example, are awash with spring blooms galore, so if you’re visiting during March, April and May it’s an absolute must to stroll amongst all the fragrant scents that are associated with springtime in London. 

Visit Kew Gardens London

One great example is Richmond Park, famous also for its free roaming deer and cute baby animals.  The park is adorned with cycle paths and playgrounds so is ideal for families who want to experience the great outdoors. Within the park, the Isabella Plantation is a 40 acre Victorian woodland plantation planted in the 1830's.  First opened in 1953, it’s best known for its evergreen azaleas, flowering in April/May which line the ponds and streams.

As temperatures begin to rise and the days grow longer, there’s definitely more opportunities to take advantage of the plethora of London’s outdoor activities.   Other examples of the city ‘springing’ to life (forgive the pun!), include;-

  1. London’s Gardens (Throughout the Spring)

    To experience a sea of crocuses and daffodils blooming in all their glory, make a visit to Kew Gardens.  If you’ve never been then now’s the time – as although Kew is beautiful at any time, in spring when many of the most beautiful blooms start making an appearance.  Snowdrops, crocuses, bluebells and daffodils abound and you can also enjoy a guided tour around the gardens on the Kew Explorer land train to learn about its historic buildings and flora and fauna.

    Alternatively the lovely Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, originally planted in 1908, has been transformed over the years into a tranquil ornamental garden of classical proportions.  There are traditional rotational flower displays in spring/summer with vibrant colours and exotic planting adding to the atmosphere.

  2. St Patrick's Day Celebrations (March)

    St Patrick's Day in London showcases Irish culture at its best.  With food, dancing and music along with

    a free festival in Trafalgar Square, Many of London’s bars also host events.

  3. Mother's Day (March)

    Why not spoil your mum and treat her to a day out in the city this year? There are plenty of great things to do, from river cruises along the Thames, a fabulous musical like The Phantom of the Opera or a sophisticated afternoon tea at the Ritz, perhaps.

  4. Oxford/Cambridge Boat race (April)

    The annual clash between Oxford and Cambridge, is a uniquely British rowing race on the River Thames.  Running for over 180 years, the race amasses crowds of over 300,000.   So get a prime position beside the river, bring your picnic and enjoy!

  5. Oxford Cambridge goat race (April)

    Coinciding with the above race, you could opt for something rather different… with two aptly named pygmy goats (Oxford and Cambridge) racing around a prepared track at Spitalfields City Farm.  With all proceeds going to the farm, witness the goats, (rather than their counterparts in the boats) going for gold!  The spectacle has bands, including ‘Goat-e-oke’, (I kid you not… get it?), along with other goat-related fun.  Tickets are popular, so book early.

  6. Easter Celebrations (April)

    Easter in London is certainly a place for children and chocolate lovers alike.  This year it falls on Sunday 21st April, although the run up to this date has some exciting activities going on throughout the capital.  Special Easter events for young and old, from the obligatory Easter egg hunting, Easter themed afternoon teas, to a free performance of the biblical story ‘The Passion of Jesus’ held in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday. 

    This play commemorates the day Jesus was crucified and the run up to it.  100+ actors and numerous animals create authentic recreation of the time.  Alternatively, join a London trail on the quest for chocolate Easter Eggs.  Track down Easter bunnies at the National Trust property of Morden Hall Park.  This is a popular event for families, where you'll search all across the park for clues that will lead you to Bunny's secret stash of chocolate. 

    Alternatively head along to London Wetland Centre, an urban oasis for wildlife and people, just 10 minutes from Hammersmith.  Here you can stroll among the lakes, ponds and gardens, relax and enjoy coffee at the café, whilst the children let off steam in the play areas.  You can also go ‘quackers’ and challenge your family to explore the wetland areas searching for the giant yellow ducks hiding amongst the reeds, trees and their real-life cousins.  Special activity cards help you to find where these cheeky ducks are hiding.  You may even win a delicious prize, all whilst learning about the wildlife in the area.  There are also plenty of other fun activities at the centre for the whole family to enjoy this Easter, including pond dipping, wild play and nest building, where you’ll learn how birds behave in spring, handle a real nest and build a giant bird’s nest.  Or you could be an Animal Track Detective, exploring animal tracks and signs and make your own footprint necklace to take home. A must do day for those with children.

  7. Free outdoor events (April)

    Experience London’s many free outdoor events this spring, including the London Marathon, where you can enjoy all the festivities and cheer on all the participants as they pass many of London’s famous landmarks.  The festival of Vaisakhi, a Sikh cultural celebration, is also a real treat with performances, arts events and family activities on offer. Another great free event takes place on the Queen’s actual birthday, (21 April). There will be various gun salutes taking place in Hyde Park and the Tower of London. to mark this event.

  8. RHS Chelsea Flower Show (May)

    If you want to see innovative show gardens and stunning floral displays then this show is for you.  Book early though as tickets sell out fast.

  9. London Wine Week (May)

    Back for its third year, with pop-up bars, alfresco parties and special tasting sessions London Wine Week is not to be missed.  Celebrating the capital’s wine scene across 100 venues across the city, there are self-guided wine tours, masterclasses, supper clubs and tasting sessions.

  10. Open air Activities

    Watch plays ‘al fresco style’ in some of London's largest open-air theatres' such as Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

  11. London ‘Lates’

    Why not experience culture after dark by taking part in ‘London Lates’?  A series of late openings by  many London museums and galleries, featuring talks, performances, workshops and films.

  12. FA Cup finals (May)

    Watch the men's FA Cup final.  If you aren’t lucky enough to have scooped a ticket for the venue then join the footie fans in pubs and bars throughout the capital and mingle with others to watch the game.

  13. Witness the State Opening of Parliament (May)

    For the royalists amongst you, why not go along to see the Queen travel in her processional carriage along the streets in Westminster for the State Opening of Parliament this month?

Valentine's Day in London

Discover love in London this Valentines Day with a short stay in a serviced apartment, the perfect base from which to explore London.

With Christmas and New Year celebrations long gone, there seems no better way to brighten up those long dark winter nights and grey, overcast February days than spending it with your loved one.

The day that many couples crave for is looming ever closer- Valentine’s Day!  February 14th (just in case those unromantic ones amongst you have forgotten!) is the time when sweethearts traditionally wine and dine in romantic settings, exchange gifts of flowers, chocolates and the like.  Some couples may be looking to celebrate this ancient tradition less classically, or in more unusual ways, so this month we’ll be taking a look at just what’s out there for Valentine’s Day along with discovering a little more about its roots and origins.

Valentine’s Day in London

Roman Roots

So, who is this mysterious saint and where did these Valentine Day traditions start?  Well, although somewhat obscure and exaggerated by legend, it would seem the most likely story behind Valentine’s Day originates in a risqué Roman festival named Lupercalia.  This wildly popular, annual pagan fertility celebration took place on February 15th and involved young, naked men running around gently spanking nubile ladies with an aim to boosting their fertility! This ritual was later absorbed into Christian tradition, eventually morphing into St Valentine.  Yet some scholars believe that St. Valentine was a wayward priest who was apprehended and put to death by Emperor Claudius II after defying him by secretly performing illegal marriage ceremonies.  Claudius had apparently decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families so he outlawed marriage for young men.  Valentine deemed the decree an injustice, defying Claudius by continuing to marry young lovers in secret.  For his misdemeanour, Valentine was executed on February 14, henceforth to be known universally by lovers and sweethearts as St Valentine’s Day.

Whichever version you believe, I’m sure the truth is hidden there somewhere!

Over many centuries Valentine’s Day has evolved, and by the Victorian era exchanging hand-made gifts and cards was commonplace in England. Today it has developed into a huge commercial success, where at least a quarter of the annual total of greeting cards, are sent as Valentine cards. In fact over 150,000,000 Valentine's Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine's Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas.

Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is now synonymous with romance, flowers and candlelight and is loved so much that we dedicate a whole day to celebrating it.  Whether you want to celebrate in the classic, traditional way or do something more outlandish, there is certainly something for everyone in our great capital city.

Here are a few suggestions…

  1. Visit London’s Romantic Restaurants

Whether you’re seeking the perfect place for a first date or a table for a special Valentine's Day dinner, you can’t go wrong in London.  There are cuisines to suit all tastes and budgets. Here are just a few……

Try…

a) The Hutong Shard where you’ll enjoy stunning views of the city, along with their signature dumplings, perfect for sharing, and their own specialty roasted Peking duck.  Complete your evening with cocktails in the high ceilinged atrium bar above London's twinkling lights.

b) Galvin at Windows fuses 1930s decor with modern French cuisine. A Michelin-starred restaurant with views to match from the 28th floor, this is the perfect place to woo your loved one.

c) OXO Tower Restaurant. - On the eighth floor of this unmistakable Tower you’ll discover alluring views of The City and beyond, plus a menu of modern British classics and an intimate atmosphere, it's the ideal romantic Valentine's restaurant.

d)  Bateaux LondonRomance on the Thames.  Some say the Seine is the place for lovers!  Not so, as Bateaux London can do romance which is second to none.  Go down on one knee whilst passing London’s iconic landmarks on this superb dinner cruise along the Thames. With floor-to-ceiling windows, dinner, cooked on board and live entertainment, it will certainly be a night to remember.

The night includes a planetarium show about the romantic sights the night sky has to offer, a chance to do some stargazing through the 18-tonne Victorian telescope and a glass of bubbly whilst standing on the historic Greenwich Meridian. An unforgettable evening sure to impress!

  3. Check out the Jazz Cafe
    Here you can serenade your date with Nina Simone's greatest hits. This year The Black Voices Quintet will perform the best and most powerful numbers from the repertoire of one of the 20th C greatest artists, Nina Simone.

  4. Mercato Metropolitano
    For an unusual Valentine’s activity (11th February) head down to this vibrant space and treat your loved ones with an amazing homemade chocolate gift for St. Valentine's day.  There are chocolate making classes where you can make mini chocolate truffles and filled chocolates.

  5. Visit Sarastro

  8. Go to bed at the Electric Cinema

Why foodies should visit London this summer

In the not too distant past, on visiting London, you’d have been faced with some rather strange and uninteresting options for local cuisine.  Once, common traditional delicacies, sold throughout the London streets, included jellied eels, a particularly gelatinous meal, along with pie and mash, (also originally made using London’s abundance of eels). Over time, eel pies were thankfully replaced with those made from minced meat or mutton, as meat became cheaper and the eel population declined! To accompany these treats, another London favourite, usually served as a side dish, were cockles winkles and whelks, or a portion of cod and chips, served in newspaper!

Reserve your serviced apartment in London and make the most of Londons summer foodie events!

Thankfully, with the huge influx of multicultural influences within the capital, ‘British’ cuisine has developed out of all recognition during the last few years, through the welcome introduction of ….flavour!!  From a simple ‘meat and two veg’ society during the 60’s and 70’s, Britain is now addicted to the spicy, more interesting foods of today’s London eateries and food outlets. This long awaited, dramatic turning point in British eating habits, along with our love affair with the ‘new era’ of experimental British cuisine’, has resulted in many fabulously exciting restaurants and special cafés surfacing throughout the capital.  London is now on the ‘foody radar’ and is becoming one of the most popular cities in the world now for its inventive array of superb dishes, often inspired by overseas cooking. 

Celebrity Chef Restaurants

There are a plethora of excellent celebrity restaurants dotted around the city.  The Ivy, for example, situated in Covent Garden, is a long-standing ‘celebrity haunt’ within art- deco surroundings, which excels in providing modern British food, and Ivy classics along with other contemporary dishes, suited to any palette.

Covent Garden is also renowned for other well- known celebrity chef haunts, such as Jamie's Italian.  This restaurant is perfect for al fresco dining, whilst you soak up the atmosphere of this famous ancient, London market.  It features fantastic, rustic dishes inspired by the traditional food of Italy, incorporating flavour and flair with a great cocktail or two!

Or why not head to celebrity chef Angela Hartnett's Cafe Murano, a spin -off of her restaurant in Mayfair, where you’ll experience her take on cooking, using big, bold flavours.  Delicious classics such as braised lamb shoulder with Tuscan beans and celery will take you beyond heaven, whilst the jewel in their crown is the veal tartare, a melt in the mouth delicacy.

More Modest Options

For a menu dedicated to the bounty of the sea, try J Sheekey, which serves fabulous oysters and shellfish along with old-fashioned snacks like herring roe on toast. Alternatively, try their more upmarket dishes, like Dover sole or lobster thermidor.  The comforting fish pie is outstanding, whilst the shrimp and scallop burger takes the taste buds to a whole new level.

Or for an even more affordable dining experience, why not seek out ‘Battersea Pie’ in Covent Garden Market, which has the aim of making proper British food and sharing it with as many people as possible?  Here you’ll get a truly authentic and delicious British dining experience, enabling you to sample a wide range of succulent pies, with of course, the inevitable mash!

Whilst exploring the eateries of Covent Garden, to make your stay even more relaxing, why not stay at one of Euracom’s serviced apartments within the area, such as…

Covent Garden - St Martins

These apartments are close to the wide variety of shops, markets and restaurants and are perfectly located between Covent Garden and Leicester Square. Each impeccable apartment offers designer furnishings and modern appliances such as digital LCD TV, DVD player, internet access and fully equipped kitchen.

  • Fully equipped kitchen/ Dishwasher in some apartments/ Laundry / dry cleaning facilities available
  • Door entry phone/ Lifts/ Meet & greet arrival service
  • DVD player/ Hairdryer available/ Iron / Ironing board
  • Radio / Alarm clock/ TV / Freeview

So why not combine a ‘celebrity chef dinner’ or night on the town, with a luxurious stay in these fabulous apartments?

Try the Unusual!

Moving closer towards Regents Park, a few of the more unusually named restaurants include ‘The Potato Project’, the baked potato company.  The owners are passionate about giving you a quality fresh menu in atmospheric and homely surroundings and providing an exciting experience for everyone. Their menu shows that the humble potato can be more than just something you have with beans or cheese! Typical twists on the classic jacket include, a smoked ham hock, pesto mayo, sun-dried tomato & melted mozzarella filling.  (Makes you wonder whether you can get a potato that’s big enough to accommodate this lot!)

Or, a mere stones- throw away, near Shoreditch, is the The Ginger Pig Café, which is an unpretentious, reasonably priced eatery. The Ginger Pig Cafe is a rustic, yet cosy place, within Hoxton Market.  Apart from the typical breakfast and brunch dishes, there are delectable burgers and rib eye steaks on the brunch menu.  A warning though, these sizable dishes aren’t for the fainthearted!

A trip to the Archipelago Restaurant (W1), will send you on a sensory dining journey amidst palm trees, Buddhas and giant peacock feathers!  A globally inspired cuisine awaits and will ensure that your senses are awakened through fragrant and indulgently tantalising dishes. If you want to sample crocodile, wildebeest and kangaroo, then this restaurant is for you, whilst if you prefer classics like chicken and fish, then these are also firmly on the menu. If you want to part of ‘London’s culinary portal to world cuisine’ then this restaurant will give you a night to remember!

The Alchemist (EC3) This experimental cocktail lounge and eatery in the heart of London is well worth a visit.  Here, mixologists ‘create every cocktail with an obsessive eye for detail, presented in vessels orchestrated to add a devilish dash of theatre.’  Also specialising in a range of menus, which, according to customers ‘cross between genres’, inevitably making this an extremely interesting, entertaining evening!  They serve huge main courses, along with ‘naughty nibbles’ to accompany a drink. The rather oddly adorned walls and weird and wonderful artworks, provide an additional talking point! do.

Whilst sampling some of London’s best West End eateries, why not also sample Euracom’s amazingly spacious, yet affordable serviced apartments at the following location?

Weymouth Street London, W1

This property, set in the heart of London's West End, is a short walk from London’s major amenities and attractions.  It features a range of one bedroom apartments accommodating up to 3 people, along with a studio which can accommodate 2.

Go East!

Venturing ever more eastwards towards East London, the ‘Cereal-Killer Café is a must! 

Situated in Brick Lane, at the heart of the East End, this colourful, nostalgic eatery boasts more than 120 cereals, plus a selection of milk and toppings. Ranging from the bog standard cereal (it is anything but!), to ‘CEREAL MILK ICE CREAM’, which is an excellent way to cool down during our long, (hopefully), hot summer, this café provides excellent value for money, even catering for the little rascals in our life, by offering such delicacies as ‘Disney princess cereals’ or ‘Frankenberry’, for the boys! For a breakfast with a difference, this is a must!

Alternatively, the Frog Restaurant (E1), run by chef of the year (2014), Adam Handling, is worth a visit if you want beautifully presented food sourced with the finest ingredients.  Adam’s love of all things Asian has inspired him to create dishes prepared with a number of different techniques and styles, thus delivering a real depth of flavour to his recipes.  Dishes to delight your taste buds include crab doughnuts, which will both surprise and wow you!  Adam’s ingenious cooking and flavour combinations, demonstrates just how far British cooking has come along since those heady days of the jellied eel!

If you are intending to make your visit to London’s eateries an extended one, then Euracom’s serviced apartments listed below will make an ideal base.
