Hotspots for A London Weekend

Whether you’re staying in luxury hotels London, a hostel or be it an air bnb, London promises a wealth of great experiences. If you’re staying for the weekend you’ll feel flooded with possibilities and working out where to start when it comes to the British capital can be difficult. When faced with so much choice it is definitely worth planning your weekend so that you can make the most out of your stay.

Discovering Greenwich Park

Greenwich is based in the South East of the city and is known for its nature reserves and vast green spaces. For a sunny afternoon and a great view of London, Greenwich Park is definitely worth a visit, not only for its view of the London skyline but for its historical richness. This Royal Park is made up of 200 acres and was originally an Abbey before it was reverted to the crown. This park is known for being the home of the Queens House and the Tudor Palace of Placentia. What was once Greenwich Castle is now the Royal Observatory and was opened by Charles II in 1675. With all of this and much more to explore, Greenwich Park is a great day out for all the family.

Live the Retail High Life in Covent Garden

Covent Garden is based in Central London and is known for its high quality high streets in the form of the quaint seven dials. With a diverse range of shops sprinkled liberally between artisan coffee shops and high profile restaurants, Covent Garden hosts the likes of Niketown and Urban Outfitters as well as many trendy homeware shops.

London’s free Museums

Mostly based in South Kensington, London has a respectable tradition of city owned museums, giving visitors the chance to visit stunning buildings such as the British Museum, Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum for absolutely nothing at all. Although the temporary exhibitions cost money, the permanent do not, and provide a vast wealth of knowledge to those who would not usually get the chance to explore it.

Walk Along the South Bank

If the British Summer weather holds, one of the best ways to see the city is along the glistening banks of the River Thames. Here you’ll find a flurry of markets, river boat tours and of course the iconic London Eye. Across the River holds the monumental Big Ben whilst indoor entertainment on the South Bank includes the prestigious National Theatre, films at the British Film Institute and various art exhibits and performances at the South Bank Centre. Pair this with a variety of restaurants and bars and you have yourself one of the most memorable nights London can offer.

Explore London’s Free Galleries

Alongside its free museums, London is home to work by some of the world’s most prolific artists, both old and contemporary. Visiting the Tate Modern will have you exploring the world of Picasso, all within an atmospheric disused power station, whilst the National Portrait Gallery brings you face to face with some of the best portraits and portrait artists in the world. As the Montcalm Hotel is best, so is London for being possibly the most prominent creative hub in the world.
