We all know London Fashion Week is brilliant and the best time of the year, but it sure comes with a lot of stress; But have no fear, we've put together a mini guide on how to unwind when things get too much! Let's start off with something simple and peaceful. (and free!)
Did you know that Holland Park has a section called the Kyoto Garden?
Set at the heart of the Park, it offers a great place to go and relax in the tranquillity. Filled with stone lanterns, tiered waterfalls and peacocks (yes, you read that correctly), it is carefully designed to reflect key traits of Japanese Gardens. A few minutes here will be sure to calm you down after a busy day in the Capital.
If you have an afternoon off, why not indulge yourself with Afternoon Tea at The Ritz! Be a true Brit and delve into the tradition of Afternoon Tea - there couldn't be anything more quintessentially British to be honest. Cake stands are filled with little sandwiches, miniature cakes, scones filled with jam and cream and not forgetting the most important supplement: tea in a pot of fine bone china.
Dress in your best, sit back, relax and enjoy the luxury.
You might feel the need for a massage after travelling around London all weekend. METTA Massage Parlour on Mortimer Street (just off Regent Street) offer a great service to help you relieve the stress from your tired body. You could opt for a deep tissue massage (£40 for 30 minutes or £70 for 50 minutes) to make sure that all those stubborn knots and muscle tensions are smoothed out ready to tackle the next busy day.
Maybe you want to kick back and have a few cocktails. One of the best places in London is Milk & Honey in Soho. They have received many awards over the years and proves to be a hotspot for celebrities. Their cocktails are made with the best ingredients and finest spirits to give you a great experience. Take a few friends, put your feet up and have a well deserved drink.
So, if you ever feel an over-powering feeling of stress, check our guide on How To Relax to set you right back on track.
