London, one of the most established and historic cities in the western world. With an abundance of attractions there’s no shortage of things to do with the family while on vacation. If you’re thinking of making the trip, book some cheap hotel rooms in London for the family, save some money and go wild while you’re there. Here’s some of the best attractions for the biggest day out in London:
- Buckingham Palace – It’s not everyday that you’ll be this close to the Queen…so why not visit her official residence while you can? Buckingham Palace is one of the most recognised places in the world and the 19 wonderful state rooms are open to the public from late July to early October each year. While you’re there take a close look at the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress too.
- National Gallery – housing some of the most historic paintings of Western Europe, the National Gallery is not only a fascinating place to wander around but also regularly holds workshops for the little ones.
- Lee Valley White Water Centre – If you or your family have the adrenalin bug then make sure to get wet in the rapids at this brand new Olympic venue. You’ll have to get in before the 2012 games start though (don’t worry, it opens to the public again after the games have finished).
- Open Top Bus Tour – we’ve all seen it in the movies, so why not experience it for yourself? The Original London Sightseeing Tour (or a range of other tours around town) are one of the most comprehensive ways to experience central London.
- Catch a game – whether it’s cricket, football or another sport that you’re interested in, make sure to make some time to attend a game while you’re there. There are very many football, cricket and rugby stadiums around London, so you’ll have plenty to choose from.
- Wander – if you’ve still got time, hop on one of the London Hire Bicycles and explore the city. With the spare money from using cheap hotel accommodation you’ll have plenty spare to indulge in the many exclusive stores and restaurants.
This is just an extremely short list of the many wonderful attractions in London. Save a bundle with cheap family accommodation in the UK at the Amhurst Hotel and enjoy everyday luxuries during your stay.
