One Heck of a Summer: Celebrity Weekend in London
After a very lazy morning in central London there was only one way to perk my guest and I up to prepare ourselves for the highly entertaining evening that awaited us. After a short hop across to Kensington High Street on the tube we arrived for lunch at the stylish Babylon restaurant. With spectacular views of both the famous Roof Gardens and the rest of London it was a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of London, to relax, unwind and enjoy another world class dining experience.
The funky restaurant décor is perfectly complimented by the views over London and once again it is the small things that really set this dining experience apart. From the little box of chocolates that you receive with your bill to the Romeo and Juliet style fish tank in the toilets. There is even little cue cards on the table should the conversation run dry, not that this was a problem during our lunch! Heading back across towards Piccadilly Circus it was then time for another foray into the theatrical world. Breakfast at Tiffany's is currently showing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, just a stone's throw from both Piccadilly Circus and my fabulous hotel for the weekend the Sofitel. The theatre itself is London's oldest and in my opinion one of the most regal and charming theatres. The show itself should not be regarded as a musical, anyone who wants a good sing along would be better off visiting one of the many other shows that lastminute.com can offer. However, Truman Capote's story is perfectly adapted for the stage and captivates from beginning to end with plenty of comedy and angst throughout.
There was no better way to finish the night off than with a highly entertaining visit to some of the many bars and clubs that central London has to offer. In true ‘celebrity' style we were drinking champagne in our private booth and dancing the night away. There was definitely no need for a night bus or taxi this time!
My only question is - now that I've experienced a lastminute.com ‘celebrity weekend', does this mean I must now class myself as a celebrity on the same scale as a big brother contestant?! I hope not!
