There are so many reasons to return to Victoria this spring!
With outdoor dining and shops reopening, plus the arrival of spring, warmer weather and longer, lighter evenings, there are even more chances to get outside and rediscover the city!
As you get ready to explore once again, here are some fun ideas of what to get up to in Victoria:
Victoria is home to some of London's most beautiful parks and now warmer weather is here, its the perfect opportunity get out and enjoy them.
When was the last time you spent the afternoon in St. James Park, for example? Why not take a picnic and soak up the tranquility. Look out for the famous pelicans that have roamed there since 1664!

We're all going to have much more opportunity to get outside, so it's a perfect time to pick up some new footwear.
Or if you want a spot above the hustle and bustle, the tree-lined Cardinal Place roof garden is the perfect place for a quiet picnic, to eat lunch with a friend or take a rest after a long day of shopping.
Al fresco dining
Who isn't excited for lunches outside with friends in the beautiful sunshine? At Nova, many restaurants have now thrown open their doors (or at least their terraces) for outdoor diners, so it's time to gather your five favourite people and head out for lunch!
Some restaurants opened for outdoor dining on 12th April, including Franco Manca, Sticks'n'Sushi and Timmy Green, with others returning for indoor dining on 17th May, like Bill's, Brown's and Aster. Why not book a table at one of these places?
Hit the gym
Working out at home can be fun and rewarding, but it can't fully replace the atmosphere and the options available at the gym.
1Rebel has reopened at Victoria, so why not get down there and take part in its audio-delivered Reshape, Rumble and Ride sessions, ahead of full reopening. Check out its Covid-secure reopening plans and book a session.
Tourist in your own city
Sure, London is a dream for tourists, but how well do you really know the sights? Victoria is a perfect place to start your own mini sightseeing tour.
You could start at Buckingham Palace, visit Little Ben, a scale model of the clock tower at The Houses of Parliament, then take a walk to the Bell Tower at Westminster Cathedral – it's quite the neck-craner at 64 metres high. And there's much more waiting to be discovered!
