If you’re living and working in London, life can sometimes feel like ‘all work and no play’. The jobs market is increasingly competitive, and if you’re someone who is taking rapid steps up the career ladder, you might feel that your work/life balance has become a little skewed.
But, as a leading London recruitment agency, we promise it doesn’t have to be this way! London is one of the most exciting cities in the world, with a multitude of things to do for people in all careers, no matter what their budget. If your New Year’s resolution is to get out more and enjoy all that this amazing city has to offer, check out our top recommendations for the year.
See a show
If you’ve lived in London for some time, you may have become quite jaded about the theatre district – all those day-trippers in town to catch Les Miserables and Phantom for the fifteenth time. In fact, you’re missing out on one of the most diverse and wonderful theatre communities in the world. From the mainstream musicals on the West End and the dramatic showpieces at the National Theatre - to the multitude of quirky fringe venues dotted all over the capital. Grab a friend and enjoy a singalong to Mamma Mia, or head to one of the smaller theatres to enjoy the buzzing, vibrant artistic scene that London is so famous for.
Late night adventures
New York gained a reputation for being the ‘city that never sleeps’ – but London would surely come a close second. There’s plenty to do in London after dark, even aside from the many bars, clubs, and restaurants you can choose from. Many of the city’s most famous museums hold adult-only late night openings throughout the year, and you can even arrange a sleepover in London Zoo. What’s life in the capital without a late night adventure every now and then?
London is a great place to go for a run or hop on your bike – but it’s also a fantastic place to try a new exercise or activity you’d never even dream of. Head for one of the city’s trampoline parks to experience an energetic exercise session like no other – there are even trampolines on the wall in some of them, so you can fling yourself around with reckless abandon! Roller derbies are growing in popularity, with a number of recreational leagues out there, and you can even try a spot of Mexican wrestling (masks and all!).
London is renowned for its large-scale events, from the London Marathon and Trooping the Colour to the Chelsea Flower Show and the annual Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race. No one does big events quite like London, so why not get involved? Grab a ticket for The Proms, head for the Notting Hill Carnival, join in the World Naked Bike Ride or try your luck in the queues at Wimbledon. There’s so much to enjoy in London – you’d be mad to miss out!
