If you have planned your relocation to London well, you’ll be settled into your new London flat a couple of days after moving to London. Having the services of a London relocation services company will go a long way in making sure that your international relocation goes smoothly and successfully. You don’t want to be chasing your tail for weeks after you arrive.
Settling in can take a lot of time and energy, especially if you are waiting for your belongings to arrive and purchasing items to make your life more comfortable. Once you have got everything in its place, you have managed to figure out how to plug in the Xbox and you’re catching the tube each day like a professional traveler, you’re settled!
If you are going to be working as soon as you arrive you may find that the only time you have to explore the city is on the weekend. Use your weekends as a key to discovering the array of attractions and sights that London has to offer you.
Sundays are the perfect day to immerse yourself in the sights and rhythms of this magnificent city. Many attractions are open much later to cater for the summer tourists and you’ll be able to refresh and recharge before you hit the tube running on Monday morning.
English Fry Up! Part of your relocation to London has to be to experience a traditional English breakfast – in England! A traditional English fry-up is the best way to work off a late night Saturday and prepare yourself fully for a lazy day Sunday. If you want to be authentic then take yourself down to your local café. It’ll be an experience in Formica, linoleum and a lot of grease. If you prefer something slightly more up market then there are a number of restaurants that offer the experience without the grime. “Tom’s Kitchen” is in Chelsea and offers one of the best authentic English breakfasts. If you’re looking for something more like home then try the waffles, they’re just as tasty and the ones from Wendy’s!
Not all restaurants are open on Sundays, and the ones that are can get busy. Look for interesting brunch venues in your neighborhood and take a Sunday walk there and back. You’ll not only feel virtuous but you can stroll around the neighborhood markets and pick up so goodies for tea.
Go Green! Whether you’re a serious organic eater or just want to get some greens into your body, the Farmers’ Market in Islington is a perfect place to visit on a Sunday. There are a number of organic markets that are situated all over London. It’s a real treat to see the produce and the whole food stores in the markets. The markets have a distinct London flavor and you’ll find something for everyone to enjoy, even if you’re not a vegetarian!
Sundays in summer are the best time to spend outside, in the park and exploring on foot. If you are planning your relocation now, then save the museums and castles for the long winter weekends after September sets.
