Our country’s capital city boasts some of the best shopping in the entire world. New York, Paris, Tokyo and London are some of the top global destinations in terms of fashion and culture, and happily, one is right on our doorstep. If you’re planning a full-on spree, you’ll want to spend the night at a central hotel in style and comfort. Retail therapy is one thing that works wonders even if you don’t need it to cure any trauma or misfortune – and treating yourself to a stay in a quality hotel has exactly the same effect – as does indulging in a good meal. It’s impossible to visit all the best shops in one day, so we suggest you make a weekend of it, and kill these three satisfying birds with one very enjoyable stone.
The Montague is a hotel that is perfectly positioned by Oxford Street and Selfridges, the two busiest and most progressive areas for shopping in London. You can expect any hotel rooms to be small in the city centre, but the rooms here are surprisingly sizeable – not to mention well-equipped, good value for money, and very comfortable.
For your evening meal, you’ll no doubt want to experience the lively environment and stunning night-time illuminations of the city. Choosing where to go if you’re not familiar with the area can be tricky – but be sure to check out The Counting House. This thoroughly London restaurant is a classic example of traditional English pub grub, presented in gourmet style, in opulent surroundings. By no means expensive but very well presented and using good quality ingredients, the food here is certain not to disappoint. Oak panels, rich patteed carpets, leather armchairs and a huge selection of British ales and beers make this a great destination to relax after a hard day’s work on racks and in dressing rooms!
