For most of us, birthdays are a real treat, a special occasion worthy of a big celebration with all of our closest friends and relatives.
Whether you choose to go out for a low-key evening meal with your family, dance into the early hours with friends or hit the shops and treat yourself to some new clothes, London has got everything you could ever wish for a truly memorable evening.
No birthday is complete without a night spent in a fabulous hotel, so settle into a room at the Park Grand Paddington Court London and let the celebrations begin! Here are our top four reasons to spend your birthday in the city…
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants
There really is no end to the places that you can choose to wine and dine on your special day. With it being your birthday, now is the time to indulge and really treat yourself. Dine at The Dead Dolls House Islington for a magical evening of cocktails, fine food and live music, all taking place in the whimsical setting of a Victorian townhouse.
If you’re a fan of a boozy brunch, head to Bag Egg in Shoreditch where you can enjoy unlimited prosecco and bloody marys while you tuck into some seriously good eyes. What could be better?
No doubt all of that day drinking has got you feeling a little bit sleepy, so head back to your room at the Park Grand Kensington Court London and have a cat nap before hitting the shops.
It’s a shopper’s paradise
Whether you are a fan of high-end, high-street or vintage clothing, you will find everything that you could ever want in London. Stroll along Bond Street to shop (or window shop) in some of the most famous designer boutiques. There are a ton of coffee shops and lovely restaurants on this street, perfect for enjoying a mid-afternoon coffee. Head to Oxford Street for the pick of the best high-street labels or browse Shoreditch for some vintage gems.
There are so many clubs and bars
Most of us enjoy a few tipples and a dance on our birthday, and London is the perfect place to have both. If you fancy something quite upmarket and don’t mind burning a hole in your pocket, there are lots of high end places in Mayfair. Head to Charlie Berkley Street, a swanky bar and nightclub. Be sure that you have dressed to impress as this hot spot is often frequented by celebrities.
You’ll never run out of sights to see
If you enjoy getting out and about on your birthday, London is a great city to visit for your special day. There are so many famous sights and attractions to take in, you’ll be hard pushed to fit it all in, but it’s worth a try! Go on the London Eye for breaktaking views of the city, head to Buckingham Palace to see the Queen’s official residence and stroll through Hyde Park.
