Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, there’s plenty to indulge in over the Easter weekend.
It’d be easy to unwind at home watching Netflix with a stash of chocolate eggs but SE1 has your Easter weekend covered.
Venture down to the Igloo Flowers pitch on the corner of Tanner Street and Bermondsey Street. Bring a touch of spring to your home and pick up a simple bunch of seasonal tulips or some daffodils.
Feeling peckish? Head over to Tanner & Co at the end of Bermondsey Street. The restaurant, whose decor is inspired by an old-fashioned gymnasium, serves up a bottomless Sunday roast with all the trimmings for £40. The outdoor garden is a welcoming spot for a lazy Sunday beverage in the sunshine – yes, we’re feeling optimistic on the British weather front.
Stroll down the river and onto Tooley Street and you’ll find the impressive Tudor-inspired red-brick LaLit Hotel which opened in 2017.
The grade II listed building was once St Olave’s grammar establishment for boys from 1835 to 1968. It has been converted into a luxury five-star hotel which combines Victorian architecture with Indian opulence. A chai-themed afternoon tea is served in the gallery. You can also book in for massage or beauty treatments in the Rejuve spa.
Why not round off your day with a glass of fizz, or two, at Prosecco House. London’s first all prosecco bar opened in February behind City Hall and the southern landing of Tower Bridge. A range of more than 20 different varieties of the sparkling wine is available from small family-owned vineyards and can be nicely polished off with focaccia and salami.
