Friday we were at sway in covent garden for a jongleurs stand up comedy night follows by night clubbing, two bottles of wine, lots of cider and some seriously funny comedians like Rudi Lickwood and later all added up to a great night out on friday.
Getting the deal on offer from crowdity on thursday we got the comedy, a drink, and 3 rooms clubbing entry all for just £8, usually it’s £30 just to get into the comedy!.
Saturday was spent getting over a massive hangover, packing up more stuff as we should be moving house soon; then going off to the Loch Fyne restaurant in twickenham, we had £60 of clubcard vouchers to spend there but when we got there noticed on the door they were no longer accepting those.. so up the road to the pub we went for a delicous meal instead with great service.
Sunday morning we are off on a road trip, to the peak district, a spa hotel called Barceló Buxton Palace Hotel in Buxton. The drive up was pretty good except for a 10 mile stretch of the M1 being a a 50MPH average speed camera zone… testing…
The hotel has an impressive reception, really friendly staff, the room was huge but needed renovation for sure, but the massage and facial treatments we had were pretty good, we even used the gym for an hour!, then a bit of pool, sauna, and steam room for me.
Also included in the £89 a night price was a three course dinner that was very good quality indeed again with great service. The following morning we had a delicious breakfast fryup buffet breakfast there in the elegant restaurant while looking forward to what we booked the night before…. For £89 each we got one night 4* hotel, massage, facials, 3 course dinner, and a huge breakfast.. great value.
Sunday for 3 hours we spent doing one of the most exciting things ever, it’s called GoApe which is ‘high-wire forest adventure’ and was just insane, climbing up rope ladders to walk 20 metres high between the trees on wires and getting to zip wire down three times… if you want one hell of an adrenaline rush then do this go ape thing, they are all over the UK.
On the way back to London we stopped off at the loch fyne in St Albans to blow the vouchers so we had £65 worth of food for a fiver, good old tesco clubcard.
