The Living Wall at The Athenaeum Hotel

9th December 2019

Friday night

Whatever you’ve been up to during the week, Friday nights were made for the cinema. Everyman Cinemas offer extra special experiences that are perfect for date nights. Relax on a sofa together, order some food perfect for sharing and sip on a glass of wine while watching a film. Everyman is a small chain, so there are several of these cinemas to be found across London.

Start the weekend with a breath of fresh air by taking a stroll around a Royal Park. Grab a couple of coffees and pastries and enjoy not having to be anywhere else in the world on a Saturday morning. From The Athenaeum, it’s possible to wander through neighbouring Green Park, past Buckingham Palace and onwards to another Royal Park, St James’s Park.

Next, soak up some of London’s cultural scene by paying a visit to an arts venue. The National Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts are both a short meander away from St James’s Park. With a fascinating array of permanent and special exhibitions, both are ideal for exploring hand-in-hand with a loved one. Stop for a lazy lunch together too for a little more ‘you’ time.

After a wonderful evening, remember to look up at the stars in the night sky over the city. You could even do a spot of stargazing in The View, the tenth floor lounge at The Athenaeum offering panoramic views of London.

Before it’s time to go home, end the weekend on a high by taking in a matinee performance at one of London’s famed cultural venues. Shows such as Disney’s The Lion King, Fame, School of Rock and Sister Act all have Sunday afternoon performances and have an amazing feel-good factor.
