Quite rightly, the UK is known for its history. Whether you’re tracking ancient street names in the City, or film locations in the West End, there’s always lots to do.
London nightlife shouldn’t be overlooked, either. It’s a city that is bustling, vibrant, multicultural and cosmopolitan.
It’s a place where old and new just works! Traditional pubs rub shoulders with the newest cocktail bars, and famous nightclubs with world renowned DJs work perfectly alongside underground futuristic arcades. London really does have something for everyone.
Imagine bringing an adult twist to all your favourite childhood memories… You can do exactly that at Ballie Ballerson in Shoreditch – there’s a million balls, two giant ball pits and stunning cocktails to match! If sport is more your thing, how about mini golf in Swingers, just off Oxford Street? Your drinks will be delivered to you while you’re getting your hole in one. Or try NQ64 for arcade-style gaming with weekly DJs spinning tunes into the early hours. It’s great for craft beers and themed cocktails including a Crash Bandicoot-inspired ‘Aku Aku Fruit Punch’ and a Super Mario-style ‘Power Star Martini’. If that’s not enough, we recommend Happy Hour in Simmons Bar. There are lots of locations and between 4.00 – 8.00 pm you can get two cocktails for just £10.
Music lovers are also well catered for in the UK, with a choice of multiple music events taking place every day. Many artists tour around the country in a variety of amazing venues. You can support new and upcoming artists or your favourite performer from just a tube or train journey away.
The streets may not be paved with gold, but London is known for opportunity. This is just a small taste of what it has to offer. As the capital city, it’s certainly a great place to start, and is a perfect base from which to explore a much bigger world.
