For many, January is a time for a fresh start, to get fit and kick-start a new healthy eating plan.
Boasting plenty of green space, innovative gyms and exercise classes and a plethora of healthy restaurants, cafés and stores, London is the perfect place for a well-being weekend.
Helping Scots stick to their new year resolutions, overnight rail service Caledonian Sleeper has compiled a list of some of the city’s best places that can be enjoyed during a weekend getaway without the dreaded guilt. Whether it’s a detoxing juice bar or an energy boosting spin class, there’s something to keep everyone healthy this January.
The London Bicycle Tour Company
If you’re keen to see the city’s sights whilst keeping active then opt for The London Bicycle Tour Company.
Offering a selection of private and half day tours including the Love London Tour, Old Town Tour and Classic Tour, the organisation is one of the best ways to see London’s most popular attractions such as Hyde Park, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace by bike.
Choose from a range of bikes including traditional, hybrid and children’s bikes before making your way around the city with a knowledgeable guide.
This grab-and-go café in Soho serves up fruit classics as well as specials such as the ‘Cholesterol Buster’ and ‘Fatigue Beater’ filled with added extras. Not only can customers enjoy a delicious drink but they can also top up on ingredients that deliver an added kick.
For colder winter days, the outlet also offers a selection of hot juices including the popular ‘Flu Fighter’. Or, for something more substantial, take a look at the food menu which boasts tasty snacks such as the famous bacon and avocado sandwich.
Take some time for yourself and enjoy the benefits of yoga and Pilates at Triyoga.
With outlets across London, Triyoga is a centre of excellence for various practices which all nurture the body and mind through meditation and flowing moves in a peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Each class is supported with an instructor and necessary equipment and can be enjoyed alongside treatments such as acupuncture and osteopathy.
Traditional afternoon tea has become a worldwide phenomenon but, thanks to cream and scones, the English practice is far from healthy.
Tombo Café in Kensington offers a lighter alternative to the iconic meal. The Tombo Afternoon Tea is an exciting way to enjoy Japanese style savoury and sweet delights alongside tea or sparkling yuzu sake in the heart of London for as little as £16.50.
