I started my blog almost two years to the day (crazy right?) and I remember thinking for ages about what to call it before deciding on ‘London style girl’. Since those early days when I pretty much concentrated on fashion I’ve developed it into travel and lifestyle content as well, still trying hopefully to put an emphasis on cool new London locations. Sometimes that can feel like a struggle to find somewhere that has not been reported on and many times over but here I can honestly say is somewhere new (well it’s been open 3 weeks) and that definitely is super cool.
The Trafalgar St James is a hotel right next to and overlooking, closer than a stone’s throw, from Trafalgar Square. I had both dinner and breakfast here and I’ve got to tell you the food is fabulous as to are all the staff who on my visit couldn’t have made me feel more welcome.
However, for me, the creme de la creme is their rooftop bar on the 5th floor (where a couple of my photos were taken ) and it’s amazing view of the center of London. I’ve previously seen some pretty impressive views of this great city but never from such a magical vantage point looking out across the whole of Trafalgar square and the rooftops of Whitehall, St Jame’s and The Strand. It even seemed as if I could reach out and touch ‘The London Eye’.
It is such a perfect place high up above the bustle of the daily comings and goings of the city. I can’t wait to bring my friends here so that they may also discover this little gem of a place.I was lucky enough to check it out outside of opening hours (so I could go full steam ahead with posing) but I can imagine it gets very busy, especially in summer. I will definitely be making full use of the rooftop in the warmer months of the year but for now, they provide blankets and heaters so if you’re looking for somewhere new and exciting right now – I highly recommend it.
