You’ve arrived in London and your heart is set on living in the lap of luxury for the weekend. You’ve worked hard for this rest and are looking for ways to justify your exquisite escape. Look no further, as we forecast five fun fancies for frugality to create a top London night.
1. Eating in is the new eating out
Living the luxury life does not have to mean lavish lunches out. Why not create a meal in the comfort of your home-from-home? With so many stores providing deals on food, you still have the variety of choice to rustle up your favourites but at a fraction of the cost. In fact, why not save those leftover veggies for an opulent bubble and squeak? Top it with a slice of smoked salmon and a poached egg for a twist on a classic British breakfast.
2. Bulk buy wine or Champagne
Whatever your treasured tipple, you can save a small fortune on buying in bulk. To really experience the luxury lifestyle, try topping your favourite fruits with Champagne to make a bargain bellini. With the savings you’ll make, be careful not to topple on your catchpenny Jimmy Choo’s.
3. Stay faithful
Life after Sopranos was hard for us all. And as time ebbed away, the HBO subscription seemed less important. Until all the great new series came along. Want to catch up on stylishly shaped series for a slice of the cost? Remain faithful to your providers and they may offer you half price deals.
4. Go to the Matinee
So you’re in London. The visit wouldn’t be complete without the bright lights of a West End Show. But who says it has to be an evening show? Catching a matinee will save your pennies and mean you can reserve the evening for good conversation with those you want to be with. Without the intrusive shushing from behind.
5. Scoop the scoop
Fancy relaxing at a free show with the bygone backdrop of Tower Bridge? Look no further. The Scoop is an 800 capacity sunken amphitheatre which shows live music, plays and film screenings. Don’t forget your gym kit, though, as sometimes there could be keep-fit classes!
With all of the savings you’ll make, it’s time to step up the luxury and book Urban Retreat’s luxury One Mayfair Apartments for a supremely comfortable, chic and convenient stay in the English capital. With serviced apartments right in the heart of one of London’s most exclusive areas and some of the hotspots right on your doorstep, you will appreciate all your saving.
