tonic travel / Sample London Itinerary
4 of 4
Your legs are probably tired by now so hop on the Central Line tube, change to the Victoria Line at Oxford Station and wander home for a quick rest and wash before your evening begins – or hop in a cab for a quick trip back (it gives you a different perspective on the city and the drivers are often real characters!).
Your classical outdoor concert begins at 7:30pm in Hampstead Heath. We suggest making your way by 6:30pm so you aren’t rushed. Pack your blanket and a sweater for when the sun goes down – and don’t forget your tickets!
Again, you’ll take the Victoria Line tube (toward Seven Sisters or Walthamstow Central) to Highbury & Islington where you’ll change to the Silverlink Train service (toward Richmond) and hop off at Hampstead Heath Station. From here you’ll stroll through the park toward Kenwood House, the backdrop for tonight’s concert. We’ve indicted the best route on the enclosed park map. The picnic you ordered yesterday from Marks & Spencer will be waiting so all you have to do is uncork your bottle and find a nice grassy spot to enjoy the concert as the sun sets. Stay until the very last song as the evening ends with spectacular fireworks.
Phew! You covered a lot of ground today and are probably exhausted. We suggest splurging on a cab to deliver you right to your doorstep for roughly £25. It’s best to hail one on the Perimeter Road outside of the Kenwood Estate gate.
After all that fresh air tuck in for a good night’s rest. Tomorrow you’ll be off to our favourite Sunday market, pampering at a wonderful spa (for her), a visit to a small, unique museum (for him) and a fabulous evening meal. Sweet dreams!
