Are you ready to explore the City again?
With outdoor dining and shops reopening, plus the arrival of warmer weather and longer, lighter evenings, there are even more chances to get outside and rediscover the city (it's been too long!)
As you get ready to set out, here are some of the exciting things you can get up to!
With stores reopening, it's time to ditch the loungewear and stride into spring feeling like your absolute best self. From Reiss to BOSS, you must be aching to get your hands on the latest spring collections.
Need some inspiration? Check out this handy guide to styling your spring, and just imagine all the fabulous clothes and accessories at your fingertips!
Down to the river
Stray not too far from One New Change and you'll arrive at the Thames – perfect for taking a relaxing stroll or even jumping on a river taxi for a view of the city from the water (river services opened again on 29 March).
Cross over the Millennium Bridge for quick access to historic Bankside and Shakespeare's Globe.
As we're all going to have much more opportunity to get outside now, it's a perfect time to pick up some new footwear.
Thankfully there are plenty of options for a little foot therapy. Whether you're after some stylish sandals or a new pair of hiking boots, there's everything you need to get your toes ready for a summer outdoors!
Ultimately, it's just nice to have more chances to enjoy the outdoors now the warmer weather is rolling in, and there are so many amazing hidden gems around the City waiting to be discovered. From Postman's Park, where you can read about everyday heroes who lost their lives trying to save others, to London's highest public park.
Al fresco dining
Who hasn't been excited for lunches outside with friends in the beautiful sunshine? At One New Change, restaurants have thrown open their doors (or at least their terraces) for outdoor diners – we can almost taste that first plate of tapas!
Some of our restaurants are now open for outdoor dining, including Madison, while others are taking bookings for 17th May, including Gordon Ramsey's Street Burger, The Ivy Asia and Bread Street Kitchen. Find out more and book your table here.
Take a breather
Sometimes we all need quiet corner far away from the noise and crowds to unwind. Our stunning roof terrace – while closed at the moment as a public space – plays host to Madison's rooftop bar and terrace. So why not book in and stay for a cocktail or boozy lunch while you gaze upon spires and skyscrapers.
Tourist in your own city
Sure, London is a dream for tourists, but how well do you really know the sights? Though museums are still closed, you can still take the opportunity to revel in the city's historic architechture.
On a single walk you can take in The Old Bailey, with its 67 foot high dome and 12 foot gold leaf 'lady of justice', and the 'industrial cathedral' Tate Modern, an incredible modern transformation of Bankside Power station.
And of course we're biased, but we're never sick of the sight of St Paul's Cathedral. Its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of the London skyline and it's 100% insta-worthy from the outside.
Hit the gym
Working out at home can be fun and rewarding, but it can't fully replace the atmosphere and the options available at your gym.
WIT has now reopened, so you can get back to your usual work out, sign up for a class or talk to a personal trainer to get back to your fitness goals!
We can't be the only ones feeling a little unkempt after this winter lockdown. Thankfully, hair and beauty is back too, with salons open to help you trim and blow dry your way into a new spring look!
Store and restaurant opening times might be a little different to usual. Check our opening times here. We can't wait to see you!
