Visiting London is all about experiencing the city and seeing everything the place has to offer, from landmarks to amazing shopping to theatre and much more. There’s so much to do that fitting it all in can get a little stressful. Sometimes, you need a morning that’s just about having fun and enjoying your surroundings.
And, with this in mind, we’ve put together three ideas that are easy to get to from M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City, so let’s dive in.
Roman London Walking Tour
Because London has so many layers of history, with much of the older heritage of the city hidden away, it’s easy to forget London has a rich Roman history, and that’s where this hour and a half walking tour comes in.
The Romans had a strong presence in London for more than 400 years, reaching a peak in AD 120. At the time, ‘Londinium’ was a major jewel in the Roman Empire’s crown and, as such, the Romans put a great deal of time and expense into making the place to their liking. The Roman London Walking Tour takes you to all the sites – some buried under modern buildings, some not – and gives you a real insight into the significant Roman city that once dominated the nation.
And, if you’re a mite peckish after your tour, you can always make the short journey to The Montcalm Restaurant for a spot of lunch.
Hyde Park Stables
Most people don’t realise that Hyde Park has stables, much less that you can ride horses across its leafy, beautiful spaces, but you can.
Hyde Park stable has offered visitors – novices and experts alike – the chance to do some classic English horse riding for decades, and their safety record are second-to-none. You have your choice of horse or pony and can enjoy five miles of bridleways as you meander your way across the famous Hyde Park. And if you don’t fancy riding in a group, you can book private lessons and rides for a more intimate, personal experience.
There are few things more unique and fun than pairing off with your horse and lazily trotting past the Serpentine Lake. Hyde Park is easy to get to from M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City, and this is one activity you don’t want to miss.
Thames Lunch Cruise
If you’re in the mood for something a little more sedate, a Thames Lunch Cruise may be the option for you.
Thames cruises are an extremely popular way for visitors to see the major sights of London, but this cruise offers on board lunch, complimentary tea, coffee and wine on top of the sights and a live audio commentary. It’s a fabulous way to pass a morning and ease into lunchtime, and the departure point of Embankment Pier is only a short hop from M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City.
You have your choice of ‘Classic’ or ‘Premier’ lunch cruise options, and both offer the perfect accompaniment as you watch the London landmarks drift past. What could be better than that?
