From where to stay to things to see and where to eat, we’ve listed our favourite London hotspots. Oyster Cards at the ready…
Looking for luxury with a great location?
Check into Motel One for a chic base that doesn’t break the bank. Sandwiched in between Aldgate and Tower Hill tube, landmarks are on your doorstep – literally. Rooms are designer decorated to a high standard including rainfall showers, dreamy beds and floor to ceiling windows which provide killer views of the capital (spot The Gherkin, Tower Bridge and The Shard to name a few). And as for facilities you’ve got free wi-fi, a continental breakfast and on-site bar should you fancy a refreshment.
What To See
London is bursting with culture, famous landmarks and must-sees. From Buckingham Palace to Tower Bridge and Marble Arch to Piccadilly Circus – the list is endless.
Take a boat cruise along The Thames to see the city from a different view. Visit (and even dine) at the Shard for breath-taking views of the city.
Stroll around one of London’s many world-renown galleries from Tate Modern to the National Galley – which houses over 2,000 paintings. Or take a leisurely stroll (and picnic if weather permits) in the endless green parks the city has to offer. Hyde Park (Tube: Marble Arch) houses a boating lake, Diana’s Memorial Fountain and open green space as far as the eye can see. Or roam over to Regent’s Park with landscaped gardens, lakes, sports and London’s Zoo – housing over 700 species of animals.
Where To Eat
Want brunch with a difference?
Book in for an appointment with Dr Kluger Intrigued? You should be, Hidden behind a secret corridor at The Breakfast Club in Canary Wharf, it’s a Narnia effect as you enter the Old Towne Tavern away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Try their famous Bottomless Boozy Brunch where you’ll be treated to unlimited Prosecco, bucks fizz and lager alongside your mouth-watering meal (over 18s only) – available every Saturday and Sunday.
Not feeling up to the fizz?
Not to worry – they also offer all of your regular fry up favourites, eggs, pancakes and breakfast sandwiches up until 5pm daily – lie in here we come!
Try and reserve where you can as queues out of the door are a regular thing and no-one wants a hungry stomach…
Have A Few Drinks At…
Take in all the city has to offer at the Double Tree Hilton’s Sky Bar by Tower Hill. You’ll be able to tourist spot all of the landmarks whilst sipping a Long Island ice tea (or three) as the sun sets.
Just make sure to get there early enough to grab a seat as it’s a popular hotspot.
