London Living with an Alternative Twist!

Enjoy the Great British Summer

Whether it’s a staycation or a family day out, make the most of the Great British Summer with Days Out and Short Breaks at fantastic prices from I’ve selected a few of their suggestions to put together my top three choices…

The View from The Shard with 3 Course Michelin Dining and Bubbles for Two.


Only recently built and already an integral part of London’s iconic skyline, The Shard points up to the clouds, reaching an incredible 308m and rendering it Western Europe’s tallest building. What would it be like to look down on the capital, its landmarks and people, from so high up? Find out with this jaw-dropping sightseeing and gourmet experience for two, ideal for any occasion – whether you’re looking to thrill a partner, treat a parent or simply get an unbeatable selfie with a friend, when you ascend to The View from The Shard by the ultra-modern lift, you’ll both be lost for words. Day or night, London’s most famous landmarks are breath-taking, and you won’t want to forget your camera! Although the view might tempt you to stay, you’ll want to come down sooner or later, because a fabulous meal awaits you in Latium. Three delicious courses each will be accompanied by a chilled glass of chilled bubbles at this Michelin recommended restaurant located in the heart of the city, so make the most of your outing in London with this experience for two.

We are actually off to do this next week, so watch out for the post!
