Once you’ve indulged in the delights of Cocktail Week, perhaps spend a night in one of London’s many world-class hotels and enjoy a day of shopping across the capital’s many retail districts.
Explore the flagship stores of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Road to take your pick of the capital’s top shopping destinations. There are huge H&M, Topshop and sports stores, along with a selection of boutique retailers.
What is the best way to get to London?
Travelling to London can be difficult due to the high volume of traffic in the city no matter what mode of transport you use. The roads are often full of traffic and parking can be extremely expensive, as well as difficult to find.
In addition, it can be challenging to reach London by rail, especially if you do not book your tickets far enough in advance. Purchasing tickets on the day can mean you do not have a guaranteed seat reservation.
For a quicker and more efficient trip, a coach could be the best alternative. Passengers can look forward to Wi-Fi, a comfortable seat and plenty of luggage room.
