London is one of the most visited cities in the world, no surprise when you appreciate its diverse culture, cuisine and historical attractions. Full of art and creativity, it continues to aspire and seek out new innovations that invite discovery.
London’s skyline ostentatiously displays both its history and modernity – Big Ben dominates Westminster, while the Shard casts a shadow over Tower Bridge. Focus the lens and a city of villages starts to emerge, culminating in a metropolitan melting pot of ideas and beliefs, of sights and sounds, from all corners of the globe. From the grandiose mansions of Kensington to the pop – up bars of Brixton, its vast and distinctive green spaces, and everything in between. With worldwide flights to London you will find something to suit your holiday in this magnificent capital.
London’s festival scene is as eclectic and diverse as the British capital itself, with something for all tastes. This summer Lovebox is the festival with the big names. Head over to Victoria Park on the 15 and 16 July to see Major Lazer, LCD Soundsystem and Jungle do their thing. Alternatively, for the more dance-inclined, South West Four at Clapham Common will provide all the beats you could want. The Chemical Brothers, Rudimental and Dizzee Rascal vie for your attention, among many more over the bank holiday weekend – 27 and 28 August.Search now
In October, the summer has truly wound down and the days are getting shorter, but the change in season brings new exhibitions, shows and concerts to welcome the autumn months. From classical music and high – brow art to skiing and yoga, October is an exciting month in London.
Before the city turns festive with pop – up ice – skating rinks and Santa's grottos, the skies light up with firework displays to commemorate Guy Fawkes, and later the Lord Mayor's Show. Remembrance Sunday brings a glorious show of red poppies, to mark those who lost their life in the line of duty.
There’ll be festive spirit coming out of your ears. December means fairy lights, champagne hampers, carols and ballet. Have a traditional London Christmas, with modern art and dance throwing in a few unexpected surprises – like silver charms in a glorious Christmas pudding.
If you’re planning a trip to London, one of the most important considerations you’ll make is where to stay. London is like a city of villages, each providing a different city break experience. Our hotels in London are spread across many of London's neighbourhoods. For entertainment there’s no better place than the West End. Westminster is at the heart of politics and royalty. Or stay around Tower Bridge and soak up quintessential London and the ‘city life’.
Bloomsbury has attracted writers and liberal thinkers for centuries. Streets lined with Victorian architecture and beautiful garden squares contribute to its distinctive village feel. Our bestselling hotel in this area is 3* Royal National – it’s basic but, as a comfortable base in a great location, it is ideal. Alternatively, the 4* Doubletree by Hilton London West End is a stylish contemporary hotel in a beautiful Edwardian block, just off Russell Square. King's Cross St Pancras is one of London’s most newly regenerated areas and an exciting place to be. Here you’ll find The British Museum, The British Library and the much underrated Charles Dickens’ Museum. Fantastic transport links provide easy access around London, and across the UK, with Eurostar serving London's high – speed rail link with Paris, Brussels and continental Europe too.
