If you’re someone who has a taste for the finer things in life, then it’s no surprise that you would choose London as your holiday destination of choice. In terms of sophistication, luxury and culture, there is arguably no better city to visit in the world. So, if you’re visiting England’s capital for the first time, you may not be sure of where to go and what to see in order to ensure a truly authentic London experience. So, if you’re someone who’s looking for a way of taking in the sights and exploring the city in style, then this ultimate guide is for you. 

Stay in a Luxury Apartment

There are hundreds of apartments in London to suit all tastes and budgets. If you have the funds, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t stay in opulent and luxurious accommodation. However, if your budget is a little more limited, we’d suggest you try and spend less on somewhere to stay. That way, you’ll have more money with which to go out and explore the city itself.

Explore the City in a Horse-Drawn Carriage

There’s no better way of exploring London then by traveling in style by horse and carriage. You can arrange to see all of the city’s major tourist attractions, and relax and take it all in while someone else does all the hard work!

Eat Out at The Ritz

Once you’ve seen some of the city sights, such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, then you can stop off for a bite to eat. The Ritz is probably one of the world’s most famous restaurants, first opening its doors back in 1906. So, if you’re looking to have the ultimate fine dining experience, The Ritz is without a doubt one of, if not the best restaurants in town.  

Take in a West End Show

Even if you’re not a big fan of musicals or theatre, we’d still highly recommend taking in a West End show. The London theatre experience is unlike any other. In fact, we’d go so far as to bet that just one evening out in the West End is enough to convert just about anyone, no matter how sceptical they might be!

End on a Cocktail or Two!

We can’t think of a better way to end a luxury evening out in London than by indulging in a Champagne cocktail or two! Dukes Bar would be one option; it’s located in the very heart of one of London’s most prestigious and affluent areas. Although do bear in mind that the drinks don’t come cheap. But it does manage to strike that fine balance of being classy, upmarket and sophisticated, without being pretentious.

But if you still haven’t had enough of The Ritz, you could always make your way back there as they have their own in-house bar. If you really wanted to end your evening on a high, you could indulge in one of their famous £350 vintage cocktails!

The brilliant thing about London is that you could visit a million times and still not get bored. So, after visiting don’t be surprised if you want to keep going back there again and again!
