If you can’t afford a break abroad this year, how about a staycation in London?
Here are my top hotspots in the capital that will bring the med to your doorstep.
For an authentic tapas experience in the heart of Tooting, The Little Taperia feels like you’ve just walked into a Spanish restaurant. The perfect upbeat vibe for cocktails and small Spanish plates. You can even get your Spanish evening delivered by The Little Taperia with Deliveroo.
Central London-based? The Port House, on The Strand takes a very close second to the Spanish tapas experience with the addition of very large and perfectly formed gin and tonics!
We have some lovely little open-air pools in London. Weather permitting, take the kids or sneak an hour of pool time on your lunch break!
Covent Garden – Oasis swimming pools.
Roof Top Bars
There’s nothing like an aperitif while taking in the sites of the capital, check out these little hotspots.
