London Workation

Make bleisure cooler: Work or play? Don't choose. Crush both

It's time to redefine vacations. Success is questioning the status quo. Updating the outdated. That’s why we’re loving the “workation”: the travel trend that blends business and pleasure. And in London—international hub of creativity and commerce—you really can have it all.

Explore London on Your Workation

Architecture, art, street life, shopping—London holds enriching and engaging spots to satiate all your interests.  Give the stuffy tour buses a pass and adventure around on foot or on public transport.  
Close the laptop and go a little further afield than the traditional sight-seeing.  
Hop on the tube and head out to the House of Dreams Museum that’s anything but your traditional art space. This mural-and-mosaic-glad museum is a kitsch-filled spot that’s perfect for selfies. Artist Stephen Wright uses found materials—from dolls to plastic cups—to adorn the walls of this eclectic and slightly bizarre home.  
If just having some chill time as you people-watch is more of your style, put on your best vintage outfit and hang with trend-setters in the ultra-cool Shoreditch neighborhood while downing some pints—like the locals.  
Have only a few hours to spare? Try a boat tour or pub crawl along the canals near Camden in “Little Venice.” Or simply stock up on designer duds during an afternoon of shopping for those only-in-London finds in Soho.

Where to Sip and Sup in Style During Your Workation in London

Care for a spot of tea, love? Don’t settle for the staid, pinkies-up version: sit down for a cuppa in one of the hippest afternoon tea services of your life at sketch. Part gallery, part salon, part design marvel, sketch adds an edge to a very British tradition. 
For lunch or dinner, snag a seat at white-hot Kiln where chefs fire up the ultimate in South East Asian eats. This small spot is an immersive experience for all your senses, from the smell of ginger wafting through the air, to the dance of the kitchen staff, to the taste of mouthwatering plates of lamb and fish. 
End your culinary adventures with a handcrafted cocktail at GA Kings X Bar & Kitchen. This chic restaurant serves up pre- or post-night out meals and expertly made drinks in a sophisticated setting that’s effortlessly Instagrammable. GA Kings’ locale is key as it’s inside of one of London’s most contemporary hotels, Pullman London St Pancras, making your work-play balance exponentially easier.
