After a long day of meetings, decisions and travel, sometimes you need to treat yourself and let the stress of the day melt away. Even if you’re just in the capital for business, it’s important to balance work and pleasure in equal amounts.
Just getting around London – especially if you’re not used to the place – is enough push up the blood pressure of most people, and you need to take the time to decompress and get ready for your next round of engagements. That’s why we’ve put together this short list of three things you can do in and around The Devonshire London Paddington to relax after a hard day.
Take a Stroll in Hyde Park
Less than two minutes away from The Devonshire Paddington, Hyde Park is the ideal place to stretch your legs, take in one of the most famous parks in the world and watch as the sun sets over London.
Whether you want to walk the tree-lined, plush environs of the park or take in the late-evening boaters on The Serpentine Lake, Hyde Park is the perfect spot to take a seat and reflect on the day just gone. And, if you’re in the mood for a little bit of a longer walk, you can always make your way to the beautiful Kensington Gardens, which abut Hyde Park’s western end.
Give Yourself a Wellness Treatment
Over the course of a long, hard day, the knots, aches and pains inevitably build up.
The Fitness Centre Devonshire offers a range of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments, from various styles of massage to facial treatments and more. On-site you’ll also find an inviting, soothing jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, all perfect for melting away the day’s stress.
Grab a Spot of Afternoon Tea
Every now and again – especially after a long day working in the city – you need just to sit back and enjoy some quality time to yourself. There are few better ways to do just that with a full, luxurious Paddington afternoon tea.
You can while away some time in the elegant lounge of the Park Grand Paddington Court’s lounge, enjoying fresh finger sandwiches, your choice from a robust range of teas, and, perhaps best of all, sample freshly made, scones, tartlets, macaroons and more. It’s a classic London experience and the perfect place to take some time to enjoy the fabulous food and drink on offer. If you’re in the mood for it, you can also enjoy a glass of the finest champagne as you dine. And we can’t think of any better way to round off a hectic day.
