Sea Containers Hotel on the Southbank: A London Staycation

It probably sounds a bit random that we love a London staycation, but actually it’s many of the best things about travelling without the frustrating downsides. It was the Mr’s turn to pick, and as he fancied a modern stay, we picked the Sea Containers Hotel on the Southbank. I’ve popped in a few times for cocktails with friends (at this Mr Kiwi rolled his eyes ‘of course you’ve been here before’) but it was… View Post

Aqua Shard Weekend Brunch Review

Aqua Shard Weekend Brunch Review

Come with me to a rather special place in amongst the clouds of London. It’s a modern temple of gold and charcoal – and has heavenly city views. Oh, and the menu?

Landmark Hotel Restaurant Review | Leisurely Lunches

I’m going to let you into a secret. Come close. Come Closer. One of the loveliest things about being my own boss is leisurely lunches. *shifty eyes* Especially last-minute ones that just kinda happen, like this one at the Landmark Hotel.  London seems to be a city that’s either planned 3 months in advance or at the very last minute – and this lunch was most definitely the former.
