What better way to treat your dad this year than with a trip to London? Whether it’s for father’s day or just because, why not, there’s plenty for you to take advantage of to enjoy with your Dad in the city of London. Whether it’s a relaxing stay on one of the Montcalm Club Packages, or if it’s a day trip into the city, there’s nothing that says I love you dad like a London adventure. Below are some of our favourite Dad London tips, whether it’s catering to his love for sports, films, or a nice cold pint.
We’re going to Wembley!
Wembley is the largest football stadium in England and is the home stadium of Tottenham Hotspurs as their White Hart Lane stadium is redeveloped. Even if you’re not a spurs fan, then you can find hundreds of different football matches taking place there every year, in part because it is owned by the FA, meaning that you find national and international games, League Cup Finals and matches in the UEFA cup. This gives you a whole heap of options to choose for for Dad and even if he doesn’t like football, Wembley hosts American Football and rugby matches as well!
Some of the best pubs in London
London is well known for having some of the best pubs in the country, and arguably the world. The heart of British culture is the public house, and coming to London you’ll find them in abundance. Whether it’s the classic traditionalism and cool jazz of the Nags Head or the Spanish twist with a real British heart which is Bradley’s Spanish Bar just off Tottenham Court Road, there are many pubs with plenty of character. With many London breweries opening, such as East End Brewery and shops such as Cadenheads doing Scotch Whiskey tasting sessions, it’d be hard not to find a watering hole where your dad wouldn’t feel right at home.
Rock out at British Summer Time this year
British Summer Time is a music festival running through July and this years line up is particularly dad-worthy. With the likes of the Cure, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton and many more, this year you can expect to see a lot of Dads rocking out. It’s a lineup to die for, and with the festival approaching very soon, it’s definitely worth getting some day tickets for this famous Hyde Park festival.
Show him he’s still young with a trip to the British Museum
If you’re strapped for cash this Fathers day, then why not take him to the the British Museum and pick up one of the incredibly cheap tickets for an exhibit. With relics from the depths of ancient history and a beautiful cafe and gift shop, the British Museum can be your way of telling dad he’s still young at heart. The British Museum is the ideal museum for fathers, especially with its diverse scope and the history behind it’s ever growing collection. Whether it’s Egyptians, Samurais or vikings, there’s plenty to keep you engaged at the British Museum.
