Tips For Staying Sane During the Festive Period

Keep calm with these seasonal London activities

The final countdown to the festive season can be exhausting, the parties, the presents and one too many cocktails...It’s definitely worth taking a bit of time out to relax and enjoy the season in order to stay sane. From indulging in hot chocolate to ‘pick me up’ treatments, here are a few things you can do in London this season to relieve the holiday stresses…


Breakfast at Dalloway Terrace

Begin your day with a nice long breakfast in the wintery surroundings of Dalloway Terrace. Located at The Bloomsbury hotel, this winter haven has recently been transformed into a festive wonderland by Wild At Heart. Revel in the snowy scenery as you sit under heaters, blankets and hot water bottles and tuck into a pastry basket and a fresh stack of blueberry buttermilk pancakes. Can’t you just feel the stress melting away with every buttery bite into your croissant?

Relax at Third Space Gym & Spa 

When it all gets a bit too much, take refuge in the Third Space Gym & Spa, which can be accessed from The Marylebone.  An urban retreat where you can enjoy a wide range of treatments including facials, massages, manicures and pedicures. Finish your pamper session with a dip in the low-lit swimming pool before sipping on a healthy green juice from The Juicery – it’s always a good idea to pack in the nutrients before all of the Christmas chocolate makes an appearance.


Indulge in a Hot Chocolate

Speaking of chocolate, when your sweet tooth calls, sometimes it’s best to answer. A short stroll from The Kensington is a divine artisan chocolate shop named Rococo Chocolates. The flagship store is filled with all the cocoa you could dream of. Savour a rich, thick hot chocolate as the aromas take away any festive anxieties.

Become a Mixologist 

A multi-sensory experience can be found at Purl, a fun speakeasy located right by The Marylebone. Be transported to another era and allow all of those stresses to disappear as you sip on cocktails that you’ve created at one of their mixology masterclasses. Each ingredient stimulates a different sense, creating a full sensory experience. Head over on a Wednesday evening to enjoy live jazz music in their atmospheric surroundings. You’ve probably forgotten about the festive stresses already…
