Business + Leisure means = Bleisure. The new portmanteau of business travel.
#Bleisure, a buzzword combining business and leisure, is one of the latest trends dominating business travel. As individuals face increasingly long working hours and stress in work, this new trend seeks to combine the efficiency of business travel with leisure activities most often associated with a holiday. This trend aims to help people work more effectively – creating a more relaxing experience and allowing them to discover the city in which they are working. So, whether its slotting in a spa treatment at the end of a long day, or taking an hour-long chauffeur-driven sightseeing tour of the city, business travellers are determined to experience more of what is outside the meeting room. Here at Little’s we’ve compiled a list of our top Bleisure experiences in London.
Berkeley Health Club & Spa – Bringing the tranquillity of the British countryside to the heart of the city, the Berkeley Health Club & Spa offers a sumptuous experience for those wishing to de-stress. Guests are welcome to enjoy the rooftop pool and secret garden on the seventh floor. A few hours spent here can transport anyone away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Skin looking dull after a long flight? Any of the Spa’s facials are guaranteed to leave skin glowing. Or, if your back is knotted after a day of back-to-back meetings, one of the Berkeley’s world-renowned massages will be just the right remedy.
Royal Gardens – Exploring the Royal Gardens – comprising of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Richmond Park, Bushy park, St James Park, The Green Park, The Regent’s Park, Greenwich Park and Primrose Hill – is the perfect way to unwind, especially during the summer months. With their immaculately tended lawns, lakes and leisure activities, a walk in one of the many parks will supply all the peace and tranquillity you need to relax.
Churchill War Rooms – This secret WW2 bunker and museum tells the tale of Winston Churchill’s life and legacy. Coined as one of London’s “top secret venues”, the private dining at Winston Churchill’s museum is also an elegant space, offering creative and seasonal dining options to guests. For London visitors who wish to explore more about the city’s extensive history, the war rooms are a must-visit.
