London and The Ritz London Hotel
Spending Valentine’s week in London and Paris I would guess would be pretty much on top of many women’s bucketlist. Being married to the best husband in the world I was treated to a luxurious Valentine’s week not only in London and Paris but staying at the Ritz London Hotel (visit site) and the Paris Ritz hotels! Yes, therefore- best husband in the world. However, it even gets better…
London for Pre-Valentine’s Day
The this trip is going in the right direction from the start- enjoying champagne on our first class flight to London. Flight and arrival are perfect, I love Global entry (a must if you want to get through customs quickly). We take a taxi to our hotel and enjoy conversation with our taxi driver who happens to be from Portugal. Finally we arrive at the Ritz London Hotel .

There is something so iconic about the Ritz London Hotel. You realize why as soon as you exit your car and are greeted by the Front Door/Greeter at the steps of this outstanding hotel. They are very polite with their English accent, but it may surprise you they are truly not stuffy at all. In fact, we enjoyed our conversations during our stay with the gentleman outside.
Furthermore, as you enter the hotel the warm friendly greeting continues at the hotel desk. Our room was ready and we are led to our elegant room by one of the front desk managers. The luxury elegance of the Ritz London Hotel is astounding. Enjoy some beautiful music while you explore…
Walking Around London
I honestly was so excited to view the rest of the hotel and walk through my favorite park the St. James, I forgot to take photographs of our room! Oh well, I guess I will have to return. As I mentioned, St. James Park is my favorite, you can few the beautiful swans and Duck Island , Buckingham Palace, The Mall and more. The St. James has always been a place my husband Kevin and I enjoy just strolling through at our own leisurely pace as we enjoy the sights of London. It is usually our first stop. Kensington Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abby and the London Eye is a must see. Jump on a bus to really see London!
Don’t forget to stop and enjoy some of the fun named pubs throughout London. You will find some of them decorated very interestingly, like Sherlock Holm pub. There are many dessert places to enjoy in London, so make sure you save room!
Night Time In London
What seemed to be only a little shopping time, we surprisingly walk out to discover it was already dark out. So we did a little exploring around London. Seeing a few of our favorite sites. For example, stopping in the Marriott near the London Eye for a drink, a little tradition of ours every time we are in London. The rest of the night was just enjoying this amazing city by walking it. For this reason to throughly enjoy London, you need to walk and walk.
The next day was the big day for me, enjoying High Tea at the Ritz London Hotel (read more). Indeed another bucketlist item checked off my list. Later that night we went out on the town to see a play (another must in London). The Book of Mormons. The show was filled with wonderful acting and singing. I found it particularly funny when they mentioned Rochester New York a few times (my hometown).
All in all, what a great start to my Valentine’s week wouldn’t you say? Moreover, now do you see why I call my husband the best husband in the world?! There is so much more to come in the next installment with Paris! Ooh La La Paris for Valentines week!
