Lovely London Weekend Breaks

Wonderfully diverse and chock full of charm and surprise in its meandering streets, London is a cultural wonder. Set on the River Thames, weekend breaks in London will offer drastically differing landscapes; from the skyscrapers and architectural masterpieces that make up its core, to the lush and leafy green parks that never end.

Every turn in this vast metropolis will see a new adventure to be had. The city’s spectacular sights are only a taster for the other delights that can be found, such as the atmospheric markets, marvellous historical walking tours, illustrious galleries and of course, the West End theatrical spectacles. When a day in London comes to an end, you’ll find it near impossible to pick between the eclectically themed nightlife that can cater to anyone’s taste.

Everything At Your Fingertips

Staying in Paddington or Bayswater on your London weekend breaks will mean you’re within walking distance of one of London’s most coveted parks, Hyde Park. Home to the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, you can take a leisurely stroll, sit back and relax or enjoy a cooling swim – if the weather is right.

Alternatively, you could stay on the opposite side of Hyde Park, where the borough of Kensington proudly hosts several famous concerts throughout the year in the renowned Royal Albert Hall. It’s also a great area to stay in if you’ve got kids in tow as Kensington also boasts some of London’s popular museums with the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum both within walking distance.

If you’re looking to soak up some local culture, making Shoreditch your base will give you just what you’re looking from. Home to a vibrant nightlife scene and a wealth of quirky design stores and vintage shops, there’s enough to keep you entertained! Regardless of where you choose to spend your weekend breaks in London, the efficient public transport links will whisk you to all the sights in the city in minutes.

Steeped In History

Whether the sun is shining or the clouds are a little grey, weekend breaks in London are wonderfully diverse. Spend time in one of the fascinating museums, shop until you drop along Oxford Street, or mingle with the locals in one of the cosy pubs. With a wealth of things to do and intriguing landmarks at every turn, weekend breaks in London can be taken again and again – once is never enough.

Soaring above the city on the London Eye is a fantastic way to get an aerial view that includes London’s staple landmarks of Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament. A tour of Buckingham Palace is a must and there’s a great challenge to be had in attempting to make the famous Queen’s guards break into a smile.

London has experienced a culinary boost in recent years, and as a result there is a feast of options; with fine dining, molecular gastronomy and finger-licking street food often found just a few metres of each other. The same applies to the bars; be astounded by liquid-nitrogen infused cocktails, dazzled by pyrotechnics and circus performances or simply head to one of the themed bars that can transport you to a Samba party or a vintage Rockabilly jive.
