Things to do for couples living in Elephant & Castle
If you’re currently searching with your partner for Elephant and Castle properties for sale, you’re in for a treat. Elephant Park, and the surrounding area, has so much going on for couples to enjoy together. After all, neighbourhood plays a big part in creating a home.
Here’s a run down (just in time for Valentine’s Day) of activities for couples in and around our new build apartments in Elephant & Castle, Park & Sayer and West Grove.
Hit the area’s buzzing restaurant scene
It’s top of the list for a reason. Elephant & Castle has a rich history of the community sharing its creative pursuits – and in this case it definitely includes food. If you want to taste the world, we argue there’s no better part of London in which to do so.
With a host of delectable food outlets on Sayer Street such as vegan restaurant Beza, nearby Mercato Metropolitano, and the new al fresco parkside dining district Ash Avenue beginning to open up, you’re spoiled for choice at Elephant Park.
Take a new fitness class
We’re not referring to your run of the mill classes here… Elephant Park has welcomed quite a few fitness venues that are disrupting the health and wellness scene.
Tempo301 is a completely original fitness concept, built around controlled movements and strength-building workouts. Think Pilates with a twist. Fight City Gym is for the brave. A group of dedicated trainers, many of whom are successful fighters in their own right, work with you to achieve results through classes that also teach you Boxing, MMA, Judo and Jiu-Jitsu.
If you’re a fan of a disco, GymBox brings on site DJs and a proper party atmosphere to brighten up gym days. And, if you’re looking for quite the opposite, you can hit up MoreYoga for an especially relaxing yoga session.
Get some sun at Elephant Springs
If you don’t already know, at the heart of Elephant Park lies acres of rolling green parkland. And, at the heart of the park, you’ll find our natural play area – Elephant Springs
All of our Elephant and Castle properties for sale, both at West Grove and Park & Sayer, are moments from Elephant Springs. So, on days when you want to sit back and enjoy nature, grab your partner and head to a sandy beach with hammocks and rest areas, where water springs up through the rock formations like a geyser in London’s own Zone 1.
Try something different
Life gets boring if you don’t try new things from time to time. Or perhaps a large proportion of your childhood was spent playing games like MarioKart or going to the arcade with friends.
Whether it’s nostalgia or a change you’re looking for, we say pay Four Quarters a visit. An arcade themed bar, with exceptional cocktails, food, and the chance to play the games of your childhood – it’s impossible not to have a great time there.
Go to the theatre
The Southwark Playhouse has an excellent reputation for bringing in quality productions in theatre and musicals to its sophisticated and distinct spaces. It has earned its place on the London theatre map with a diverse and captivating programme that runs all year round.
What’s more, if you support the theatre by attending a performance, you’ll also be helping them support the arts in the local community. The Playhouse is engaged and dedicated to furthering young thespians, in all disciplines, from across the surrounding neighbourhoods.
Dinner on the terrace
Of course, we also know you don’t need to step foot outside to enjoy each other’s company. After all, a huge part of maintaining your own wellness is spending quality time with loved ones and enjoying your own space within your home.
All our properties, including our 1 bed flats, have private outdoor terraces or balconies. So, whether you enjoy dinner outside on a balmy summer evening, or just step out together to enjoy the view, it’s your own private piece of the London skyline to do with as you please.
