Create a plate full of pasta at cookery school
The only thing better than eating an amazing Italian meal is eating an Italian meal you made from scratch. With this experience you and a plus one will learn the art of making excellent fresh pasta dishes using simple methods you can recreate at home.
Taking place in Islington’s Jamie Oliver Cookery School, you and your guest will receive a drink upon arrival and will be guided every step of the way by a professional chef hand-picked by Jamie Oliver himself. Then at the end of your cooking session you can enjoy some top-notch cuisine you made yourself – all for 20,000 Virgin Points.
Cream tea at Kew
What comes first – cream or jam? Eat your scones however you like with a fabulous view of London’s Kew Gardens, one of the largest and most biodiverse botanical collections in the world. Spanning over 326 acres, Kew Gardens has rare and endangered plant life in the Temperate House, over 4,000 species of trees in the Arboretum, carnivorous plants in the Topical Nursery, and so much more.
After enjoying walking among the incredible gardens, take a moment to refuel with a delicious cream tea – yours for 8,000 Virgin Points.
Take it easy at the spa
Sometimes the only thing you want to do is nothing, and with Bannatyne Health Clubs you can unwind with not one, but three treatments.
Available in several locations across the UK, you and your guest will both enjoy three treatments totalling 70 minutes. Choose from a full body natural salt exfoliation, a relaxing back, neck and shoulder massage, a Swedish leg massage to relieve aches and pains or a tailored facial that’ll leave your skin feeling fresh, before topping off your day with a soothing scalp massage.
Relax and unwind for just 4,500 Virgin Points.
Battersea and the great glass elevator
London’s iconic Battersea Power Station has undertaken a redevelopment that includes a brand-new shopping centre and, together with Nine Elms, the capital’s first new tube station to be opened this century.
For 19,000 Virgin Points you and a pal will make your way through the Art Deco Turbine Hall and enjoy the surroundings of the grand halls before heading to the top of the station via Lift 109 – the state-of-the-art glass elevator that gives guests incredible views of London. Once at the top you can head over to Cinnamon Kitchen where you'll be presented with a glass of Prosecco or house cocktail before enjoying a delicious three-course Indian meal.
Create some choc at a workshop
Create your own chocolate concoctions with this fun workshop for two available in London, Brighton and Manchester. Together you’ll learn the history and process of chocolate from bean to bar before tasting several different types yourself. Then you’ll both create a giant chocolate button before learning to make a dark chocolate ganache – with each treat you make available to take home, provided you don’t munch them all during the class. Enjoy this sweet treat for 10,000 Virgin Points.
