Don’t forget to have your camera at the ready when taking in Big Ben, the Tower, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Madame Tussaud’s and Westminster Abbey.
Bed and Breakfast – Guest Houses
One of the best ways to see the sights of this fabulous city is by buying a ticket for a red double-decker tour bus ride which provides fantastic views especially from the open top deck. You can’t beat fantastic shopping in Oxford Street, Carnaby Street or Knightsbridge.
Compare budget b&bs, guest houses and family rooms to rent in the city centre. This will help to make your holiday more enjoyable. Head for the nearest tube station or train station from your accommodation to spend a day at the city’s museums, galleries or parks such as Hyde, Regent, St. James’ or Hampstead Heath.
You can save money on travel by purchasing an Oyster card for the underground or train. This is ideal if you intend staying in the city for more than a few days whether on business trip or leisure.
London is also home to many reasonable priced hotels, located right in the heart of the city, and self catering apartments to rent for both short or long term, check them out.
You can expect a warm welcome from proprietors
The great thing about central located cheap b&b’s is that many have family rooms, making them the ideal base from which to explore the city. You can also expect a warm welcome from accommodation proprietors wherever you decide to stay overnight.
Whichever time of year you decide to take a weekend break, mid week break or a full week’s holiday, there are always plenty of things to do and see.
