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.
Afterwards, treat yourselves to a Whisky Tasting Masterclass at The Athenaeum, hosted by our award-winning barman. You’ll spend an hour exploring a fascinating range of whiskies together – paired with the perfect cheeses. The ideal way to segue afternoon into evening!
When the evening rolls around, make your way to buzzing Soho to soak up some of the best of London’s nightlife. After tucking into a delectable meal at one of plenty of eateries here, head over to Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. One of the oldest and most legendary jazz clubs in the world, enjoy the experience of watching the incredible musicians – it’s a date night you’ll remember forever!
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.
