International city that it is, there’s no shortage of things to see and do in London. The city is a large one with each area having its own personality and attractions while many of the oldest, most iconic landmarks are in a small, central area. This means if you are in the city on a business trip, there are lots of things you can see and do between your meetings.
One of the lesser-known areas to visit in the English capital is Bankside, the area alongside the River Thames within the Borough of Southwark. This area runs just to the west of Blackfriars Bridge and is home to attractions such as Tate Modern, St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge.
It is also well known for its culinary offerings, sometimes overlooked when summing up the city’s benefits. Here you will find Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Café as well as a number of cafes and restaurants serving all types of food and drink.
Enjoy a show
There’s a good chance that most of your free time during your trip is going to be on an evening and therefore, some things might not be open for you. One aspect of the city’s culture that is focused on an evening is the many theatres and shows on offer and this is a perfect way to relax. If you don’t like the idea of attending alone, then why not engage one of the VIP & high class escorts within London to accompany you? The West End is traditionally where many of the theatres are located but others are dotted around the capital.
Do some shopping
From the practical side of picking up a new suit to buying something for the kids to take home with you, London offers plenty of choices for shopping and many places have late night opening hours on certain days. This means you can finish your day’s work, grab a bite to eat then go to the shops.
Oxford Street, for example, is open until 8pm weekdays and Saturdays and to 9pm on Thursdays. Canary Wharf shops are open until 7pm Mon-Wed and until 8pm on Thursdays and Fridays. Harrods, the most iconic shop in the city, opens until 8pm every day apart from Sundays.
Do some evening sightseeing
While many landmarks are closed on an evening, there are still plenty of notable places to do some sightseeing after your meetings. Piccadilly Circus, for example, is actually better seen during the dark hours than during the light to get the full effect of the dazzling billboards. Here you can enjoy a romantic evening with a sexy girlfriend. Leicester Square is another location where shops are open until midnight in some cases and bars until 3am.
