Here you can experience the epitome of European sophistication and history, while also enjoying life in a modern and cosmopolitan environment.
Whatever your interests are, London will cater to them in abundance on your trip - and they’ll probably be among the best in the world. With a London holiday apartment or hotel, you can be right at the heart of the action in this spellbinding city.
How to get to London
London is well-served by a range of transport options. It's easy to get there by train or coach from anywhere else in the UK. Five large airports - London City, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and the largest, Heathrow - are within easy distance of the city centre. Public transport and taxis are available at all airports, and it's easy to get to your holiday apartment or hotel by train or bus.
No one visits London for the weather, which on any given day can be grey and rainy. However, that’s not to say London doesn’t also receive sunshine during the summer - it does. Whenever you’re visiting, pack waterproof clothing just in case the inevitable happens. You'll always have your London holiday apartment to retreat to, alongside London's wealth of museums and sights.
London’s top attractions
Rent a holiday letting or apartment hotel in central London, and there will be too many attractions to count located nearby! Some of the most famous include Buckingham Palace, the Royal residence; Westminster Abbey, a Gothic church that is the resting place for many of the country’s most famous residents from history; Big Ben; and St. Paul’s Cathedral, the city’s most famous religious building.
These sights will get you warmed up for the rest of the attractions. Take a trip on the London Eye for fantastic views of the city, walk through history as your explore the murky secrets of the London Tower, and get educational at the British Museum, an excellent place to immerse yourself in world history and see the Rosetta Stone firsthand.
Art and culture in London
London is one of the global centres for the arts, with many galleries, concert venues, and theatre shows dotted across the city. The good news is that most museums in London are free!
The National Gallery is the place to be for historic art, with pieces from the 13th to the 20th century - including by giants like da Vinci, Renoir, and Van Gogh - filling the large museum in Trafalgar Square. The nearby National Portrait Gallery is also a must, and features portraits of many of the UK’s most iconic figures, such as Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth, and King Henry VIII.
Modern art lovers will find small galleries all across the city, but if you only visit one, make it the Tate Modern, which features works from 1900 to the present day and is a leader in its field.
Explore London’s events from your holiday letting
London is a beehive of activity throughout the year, with many events taking place that draw hundreds of thousands of people, giving the city a great atmosphere. Perhaps the most colourful is Notting Hill Carnival, a two-day celebration that takes place in August. Europe’s biggest street festival, the event brings hundreds of thousands of people together for two days of music, colour, and West Indies-inspired music and dance.
In June, ‘Trooping the Colour’ takes place. This is a celebration of the Queen’s birthday in which soldiers, in full red costume and hats, are greeted by the Queen and many thousands of people holding the national flag. It’s not to be missed by anyone who has a soft spot for the royal family.
In November, you can celebrate the capture of the famous plotter Guy Fawkes by joining the locals for some fireworks as part of Bonfire Night. You can see fireworks erupt over the Houses of Parliament - the same building Fawkes attempted to blow up - or head to one of the many large shows that take place across London and beyond.
Self-catering in London holiday homes
London is a great city to visit, but it can be an expensive one. With a London holiday letting or apartment hotel, you’ll have the option of making your own food in the comfort of your holiday home.
London is a living, breathing city with many large food stores, convenience corner stores, and boutique shops where you can buy delicacy and hard-to-find foods. For a true London experience, buy your food from one of the city’s great food markets, such as Camden Lock Market or Borough Market (which dates back to the 13th century!)
London's cultural landmarks
With over 8 million works in its permanent collection, this museum documents the tale of human cultural evolution from thousands of years ago up to the present day.
Tower of London
This medieval fortress, situated on the River Thames, was formerly a prison. Today, it is home to the Crown Jewels and is steeped fascinating history.
Rising above the Palace of Westminster is London's iconic clock tower - in fact, Big Ben is the nickname for the giant bell. The beautiful neo-Gothic architecture and chiming bells can be seen and heard across the city.
Houses of Parliament
As the political heart of the United Kingdom, the Houses of Parliament represent the seat of democracy. These buildings that stretch across the Thames' north bank can be explored as part of a guided tour.
Built in the late 19th century, Tower Bridge has become synonymous with London. Traverse the high-level walkway for panoramic views of the city.
