Holidays in London

Whether you're staying for a couple of days or a couple of weeks, there's a wealth of attractions to discover and new experiences to be enjoyed in London.

Often, it's the people who reside in a city that make it special. In this part of Greater London, there's 7,600,000 of them.

London is, as you're surely aware, home to the Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. Royal Albert Hall and Trafalgar Square also appear on nearly every London travel guide, and they just cannot be missed!

Your entire family will have an absolute blast at the Coca-Cola London Eye and Chessington World of Adventures. Are the little ones still bouncing off the walls? Don't stop yet. Keep them busy with a visit to the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and the Electric Cinema.

Head out on an underwater adventure at Sea Life London Aquarium, where you'll bump into all sorts of aquatic species. Yet another oceanic world is waiting for you at Sea Life London Aquarium.

Both kids and adults will enjoy coming face-to-face with the range of interesting animals at the ZSL London Zoo and Brent Lodge Park Animal Centre. You will also be thrilled by the wild wonders at Maryon Wilson Animal Park.

If you think man and beer were meant to be, you should head over to the Fuller’s Griffin Brewery. The brewers' loyalty to this heavenly, golden drop is captured in every bottle.

You'll need to keep your eyes wide open as the experienced racers barrel through the track at the Lets Race. All it takes is one blink and these speeds and you might miss it!

Get out of the city for the day and savour a little wine tasting at the Beefeater Gin Distillery. Remember to grab a bottle of the most delicious drop to add to your collection back home!

There's not much like a night out at a casino to kick start your festive spirit! Take on the roulette dealer and watch the high-stakes punters or just wander around and soak up the sights at the Hippodrome Casino and the Empire Casino. The Aspers Casino and the Park Tower Casino are also top options.

Botanical experts and amateurs alike will be pleased to find out about this region's comprehensive collections of plants. For a flower-filled day, start off with a leisurely walk around the winding pathways at the Royal Botanic Gardens. Once you're done there, head to Eltham Palace, where the range of species alone will be sure to thrill you. For those who are more committed, the Queen Mary's Gardens and Ham House also have some incredible floral exhibits.

Take some time out from your hectic sightseeing schedule and flop down on the cool grass at Kensington Gardens and Russell Square. Hyde Park and St. James Park are a few more spots where you can experience a little greenery.

Whether you want to discover the most popular cafe or where to venture after dark, you'll find the answers you need at Thames Barrier information Center or Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre. Victoria Station Travel Information Centre and City of London Information Centre are two more useful places to get the inside scoop on what’s happening around town.

If you find solace in the re-energizing effects that simply being near the water can bring, you've come to the right place. Hampstead Ponds and Regents Canal are just a few of the tranquil waterbodies here that you should stop by. Don't forget to look out for the diverse birdlife that flock to Thames River and Serpentine Lake either.

You probably already know about its best shopping centres or squares, but don't forget that London has some remarkable natural sanctuaries too. Greenwich Park and Primrose Hill are two to keep in the front of your mind. Epping Forest and Trent Park are two more that are worth visiting.

Tower of London and Westminster Abbey are calm places to collect your thoughts. Study the captivating exhibits and ask the friendly staff about guided tours and other educational opportunities! Museum nerds also need to go to the Tate Modern and Kensington Palace.

From the design and construction of boats to the objects found onboard, the nautical displays at the HMS Belfast and the National Maritime Museum will appeal to anyone who's interested in seafaring history.

The wonderful world of science never ceases to impress us. Expand your knowledge on the latest in advances and achievements at Royal Observatory and the London Science Museum. For even more mind-blowing artefacts and displays, add Peter Harrison Planetarium and the Hunterian Museum to your journey of discovery.

This planet of ours is bursting with all kinds of mysterious objects. Discover things that'll put your imagination to shame at the Natural History Museum and the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology. For more displays from the natural world, visit the Grant Museum of Zoology.

With a good number of terrific art exhibitions to take your pick of, you might need a slight push in the right direction. We recommend picking up a coffee and spending a few hours at the Saatchi Gallery or the Tate Britain. If you're hungry for more, also feast your eyes at the National Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Learn all about the impact that London's past figures and events had on the country, and sometimes the world, at the British Museum and the Museum of London. Also consider checking out the engaging exhibits which endeavour to bring history to life at the London Canal Museum and the Freud Museum.

A holiday to London definitely delivers the goods when it comes to historic places. You'll be able to get a deeper awareness of times gone by at St. Paul's Cathedral and Covent Garden Market. Royal Opera House and the Royal Academy of Music are also worth a visit.

Tower Bridge and Waterloo Bridge have spanned the city's waters for what seems like forever, so the least you can do in return is pop by for a visit. They aren't alone. Blackfriars Bridge and Lambeth Bridge have also been waiting for you for a long time.

They were certainly showing off when they created Hampton Court Palace and Kew Palace, and we are certainly impressed. For more of the luxurious life, soak up the marvellous architecture at Lambeth Palace and St. James Palace.

Hoping to add a spiritual element to your trip? Check out St. Martin-in-the-Fields and Westminster Cathedral. Southwark Cathedral and Brompton Oratory are some other historically important places of worship to look into.

When you are visiting new places, keep in mind that it's sometimes the lesser-known sites that'll replay in your memories once you're home. A few places which fall into that category in London are Olympic Village and Oxford Circus. The Royal Academy of Arts and the Royal Artillery Barracks also promise an enjoyable day out.

Hotels in London

With so many awesome things to discover, you'll need to lock in a comfortable London hotel. Booking is easy, with as many as 1554 properties to select from.

Backpackers and other thrifty travellers will find a room rate that suits their budget at the Sloane Square Hotel or the Montana Hotel London. Theses accommodations are proof that great service doesn't have to come at a high price. Although, if you're the type of person who likes to live in luxury when you're on holiday, the Bulgari Hotel, London or the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London will know how to take care of you.

If you're here for just a night or two and only have limited time to take in London's must-see attractions, book a room at the Olive Níké Apartments or the Andaz London Liverpool Street - a concept by Hyatt. They are both only a short distance away from Tower of London.

Top London attractions

Buckingham Palace

The official residence of Queen Elizabeth II is open to the general public every summer. Sumptuously decorated, the rooms include classic paintings by the likes of Rembrandt and Rubens; Sevres porcelain; and a fine collection of antique French and English furniture. Visitors also have access to the 29-acre gardens and annual temporary exhibitions.

The Tower of London

This thousand-year-old prison, palace, and execution site has a bloody, tumultuous past. Walk the path that led Queen Anne Boleyn to her tragic beheading at the scaffold on Tower Green. Then marvel at the ‘Crowns and Diamonds’ exhibition in the Martin Tower. When walking the grounds, keep an eye out for the resident ravens - the black birds are said to keep the tower from collapsing.

The British Museum

This museum opened in 1759 and now holds more than seven million objects gathered from the four corners of the globe. One of the most popular exhibits is the Ancient Egypt collection, which includes the Rosetta Stone. The recently renovated and covered great courtyard has become an architectural attraction in itself.

The National Gallery

The gallery on Trafalgar Square contains some fine examples of European art spanning almost seven centuries. The entire history of painting – from the Early Renaissance to the Post-Impressionists – is represented, including an array of instantly recognisable masterpieces.

Outside on the square, the statue of Admiral Nelson – famous for leading the British fleet in the Battle of Trafalgar – keeps watch over the city from a vantage point atop a 56 metre column.

Natural History Museum

This life- and earth-science museum boasts exhibits of dinosaurs, human biology, mammals and ecology, insects, and even a simulated earthquake experience. The annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit is also held here, while children will love the interactive science centre.

London highlights

Get on the London Eye

This spectacular Ferris wheel along the River Thames was added to the cityscape at the start of the 21st century. It stands 135 metres tall, offering a 360-degree view of London and beyond.

From a vantage point within one of its glass pods, you can see the Houses of Parliament, Canary Wharf, Big Ben, and Windsor Castle, among other sights. A ride on The Eye takes around 30 minutes, and, if you want to really savour the moment, can be enjoyed with a glass of champagne.

Go Shopping in Soho and Covent Garden

London is the shopping capital of the world, with many trendy boutiques in Covent Garden. Neal Street, which runs out of the Piazza, is probably the best street in the city for shoe shopping.

There you will also find the capital’s most popular jewellers, such as the prestigious Laura Lee. Covent Garden is also home to a marketplace that combines a food market and food hall.

Soho, known for high fashion, features many sophisticated boutiques in Carnaby Street and Kingly Court.

Have a Pint in a Pub

One of the greatest English traditions is to spend hours in a cosy, local pub watching football or reading the newspapers with a pint. A proper, traditional drinking hole is Ye Olde Mitre Tavern (1 Ely Place), which claims to date back to 1547. On weekdays this atmospheric place is usually heaving with after-office drinkers – a sure sign that the beers meet the high standards demanded by Londoners.

See a Play in a Theatre

London is home to the world’s most exciting theatre scene, from brilliant productions of Shakespeare’s plays to contemporary dramas and musicals. In famous theatres such as the Victoria Palace Theatre, the Prince of Wales Theatre, and the Aldwych Theatre, you can see the vanguard of the world stage.

You can often buy cut-priced tickets on the day of the showing from numerous stalls on Leicester Square.

If you are not rushed, consider seeing the city from the top of a double-decker bus—it is a very pleasant, very “London” experience!
