Fantastic shopping. Some of the world’s best pubs. Did we mention the possibility of seeing the Queen’s cute corgis? It’s all here in London, also known as the Big Smoke. This city’s far more than an industrial hub, though. It’s also full of beautiful parks, people from other cultures (a full third of the population) and historical sites you’ve seen in film since you were a tyke.
We’ve got the deals for accommodation in London near all the hot spots, world-class restaurants and museums you could want. The nightlife and culture here is second to none, and around every corner is something new to explore. Whether you’re the type to bang together a meticulous itinerary or crowdsource your next urban adventure on Twitter, the hotels in this capital city are going to treat you right.
If you want to know what there is to do here, the answer is: all of the things, all of the time. Tool around the city for famous sights such as Big Ben, the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Don’t worry, not everything here is older than the Queen. The Shard was completed in 2012, and its futuristic façade is the third-tallest building in Europe.
As you explore, notice the Blue Plaques that commemorate famous events or things to see. You could spend weeks just discovering all 900-and-something of them. Start your search near Green Park, Kensington Gardens or right outside many of our places to stay in London. These things are everywhere.
If it’s rugby season, you can even cheer on your team from an ocean away at a local pub, where you’re sure to find good company over a pint. If it’s not, you can still win the game of shopping. World-famous Harrods boasts of being able to source anything—for a price, of course. Make some extra-special requests like a British flag toilet seat, a hot tub shaped like the Queen or a life-size Buckingham Palace guard yard ornament (so you can see how many of your neighbours watch to see if he blinks).
Get in some art appreciation at the National Gallery or Tate Britain. Say “Hmm, zat’s very interesting,” at the Freud Museum or “Ahh” at the British Dental Association Museum. There’s even a Sherlock Holmes museum you can suss out. You’ll be saying “It’s elementary, my dear” in no time.
Want something more interactive and, we dunno, magical? Check out the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter (pro tip: it’s leviOsa, not leviosA).
Jet yourself into Heathrow or Gatwick, the city’s two largest airports. Once you’ve got your bags, jump in one of the city’s iconic black cabs or brave the widespread (but easy to use) Tube system. If you don’t want to spring for cabs everywhere you go or wander this enormous city on foot, spring for an Oyster Travelcard that’ll give you access to all the public transport you’ll need on your London holidays.
Even better, the cards haven’t got any start or expiration dates, so you can use one as soon as you arrive until whenever you hear your hometown calling you back.
London is one of the best cities in the world for live music and concerts, and summer is one of the best times to rock out under the open sky. The Summer Series at Somerset House was created just for that purpose, and this year it runs from 7 to 17 July.
Feeling a little sporty yourself? Enter the River Rat Race on 13 August, where you can run, jump, swim, kayak and climb 10k—all for a good cause. You globe-trotting humanitarian, you.
And you’re not the only one who knows how to throw a birthday bash. This year, the Queen will be celebrating her 90th birthday for nearly two months by hosting the Buckingham Palace Summer Opening. You’ll even get to check out her wardrobe. Fashion tips from Her Majesty herself? There’s no better present.
Dining out here will leave you craving more, as London is home to every kind of cuisine. Fuel yourself with grub from humble chip shops, glitzy 5-star restaurants with the best food in London and everything in between. If you’re looking for Cockney food, nosh on some pie and mash, or (for the brave) jellied eels. There are also tons of international options such as curries, kebabs, pasta and even a good ol’ steak.
How about some live music? From world-famous bands to unknown artists awaiting your discovery at local pubs, follow your ears to the sounds you love.
And what about the sounds the rest of your body loves? Dance, drink and make every bit of merry at one of London’s best nightclubs. After you’ve shaken your booty completely off, recuperate at your London accommodation the next morning with a sleep-in and some good, strong tea.
Fancy a wave at the Queen? Whether you’ve got a whole week or just one day in London, see if you can stop by Buckingham Palace when the old girl’s in residence. If you want to jump right into the flow of sound and life in the city, head to Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square for epic people-watching and great backdrops for your Sherlock-chic Instagram selfies. From any number of hotels in London, you can quickly make your way to famous historical landmarks.
Book a turn on The London Eye Experience and check out those fabulous skyline views that’ll make you consider permanently trading Vegemite for Marmite (not that you would, of course…you have principles).
