London’s best places for a January detox

Have you made those resolutions to get fit and healthy in January? The brand new year is a perfect time to build a fabulous new you and luckily it’s never been easier. If you’re planning a short trip to London, you’ll be able to truly embrace your detox.

The city is packed with healthy and inspirational destinations where you’ll turn into the healthy and happy person you deserve to be. Here are some of its best:

1. The Detox Kitchen

The first stop on any detoxer’s list, The Detox Kitchen (with delis in Kingly Street and Fitzroy Place) is one of London’s best. It’s serves high quality, great tasting food free from wheat, dairy and refined sugar with an eat-in menu or a grab & go option if you’re in a hurry.

If you’re in east London on a weekday and in need of 100% fresh ingredients, check out Elephant Juice’s pop-up stall in Whitecross Street Market EC1.

If you’re feeling completely committed to the January detox, you may like to try a juice cleanse, which gives your digestive system the chance to recover after Christmas. Think radiant, from the inside out.
