Staycation in London

There’s no need to travel far from London if you’re in search of a relaxing break – the city offers plenty of great ways to unwind and treat yourself to a lavish staycation. Here’s our top tips for making the most of your own stay…

While staying at the San Domenico House Chelsea London, you’re close to some of the very best – offering stunning views across the famous London skyline. Upper 5th Shoreditch is one such option situated on the roof of a former courthouse. It boasts stylish décor and an impressive cocktail list. For a more relaxed occasion, we recommend heading to Skylight, which provides plush seating and a chilled atmosphere perfect for socialising during your staycation.

2. Visit a London museum

Another thing London has in abundance is museums. From venues centred around history to those focusing on everything from design to science and much more; there’s always something new to see while enjoying accommodation in Chelsea.

Some of our favourite venues include the Science Museum, where you can find out more about the scientific discoveries which have built the modern world, and the V&A, which offers a tour through the history of fashion and textiles. The British Museum is another great pick for exploring thousands of artefacts from around the globe.

3. Head for an urban beach

Just because you’re staying in London, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a trip to the beach. The city’s urban beaches, such as Brixton Beach, provide lots of great activities including games, sports and sunbathing – all ideal for getting you in the holiday spirit during your stay at the San Domenico House Chelsea London.

4. See the city from the Thames
