The Cauldron cocktail experience and London ventures

Well hello to you my reader chums! I love visiting London; where I live, I'm lucky enough to be just over an hour away which means a trip there can come with ease. Despite how many times I've been to London, I always find more things to see and do such as the Cauldron cocktail experience. I originally found it when I was googling 'Lord of the Rings activities to do' and it popped up. My boyfriend is a big fan of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter so I thought it was a great idea for one of his Christmas presents.

I booked the day for the first week of January as I thought it'll be a lovely way to kick-start the new year and I was right as we both had the best ever-day. Here's what we got up to...

We headed to London in the late afternoon after a relaxing morning and went to Flat Iron to get ourselves a table slot before having a mooch round Covent Garden. Flat Iron is a renowned steakhouse in London and it was our first time here. For those who haven't visited before, be aware that you can't reserve a table, however, if it's busy on arrival, you can put your name down and they'll text you when the table is ready.

My boyfriend loves steak so I thought Flat Iron would be the perfect early dinner spot. I have to say it certainly lived up to every good review I've heard. I'm not the biggest meat eater, however, the steak there was super yummy and the side dishes complimented it well. We ordered delicious strawberry cocktails and to finish, they give you free ice cream - you can't go wrong!

Covent Garden is one of my favourite spots in London. It has the quaintest shops, a few markets and plenty of side streets to find little trinkets. Even if you're not in the market to splurge, it makes for a lovely place to window shop and watch live entertainment. For more things to do in Covent Garden, check out my guide.

Now for the main event of the day, The Cauldron cocktail experience. The Cauldron was located around a 5-minute walk from the Elephant and Castle tube station in a cool looking building/tent. As we walked into the building, the entrance/hallway had all fantasy-themed decorations which really got us in the spirit of things. We then got handed robes and our wand for the evening - all suited and booted for our magic lesson.

Once we entered the tent, we were both amazed at the entire interior. It looked ever so rustic with a themed combination of all the famous fantasy novels running through. There were wooden tables, fairy lights, piles of books and plant-looking decorations.

We got sat at our table (number 3.5) and in front of us was a magical box and a list of cocktails to choose from. We picked a tequila-based and rum-based one, and the staff then brought out the first group of ingredients to make the cocktail. Making them was super fun! We had to do a combination of mixing liquids, using magic to open secret doors and heating up condiments to make smokey looking cocktails. Every stage was like a 'wow' moment especially when the staff produced fire from their hands and the cocktails lit up. My favourite cocktail was the rum one as even though it was very strong, it had a lovely aroma of cinnamon and oranges.

The Cauldron overall was a really exciting and interesting experience! We had the best time crafting cocktails and being immersed into magical fantasy land. If you're a fan of Harry Potter or not, I'd highly recommend. It's certainly something different to your usual cocktail class.

I hope you enjoyed this insight into our London day out and Cauldron experience. Have you visited before?

Thank you for reading <3
