Holiday In London

If you want to amble down medieval streets and crash an on-location movie shoot in the same city, we know just the place. Pack your bags for a London holiday and practice the Queen’s English. 

On second thought, spend your few pre-trip minutes deciding whether you want to reenact scenes from Sweeney Todd on Fleet Street or go full Sherlock and Watson with your best friend on Baker Street. Why not both? Once you get to “The Big Smoke”, you’ve got time—just ask our buddy Big Ben. Squander it on walking tours, shopping sprees and a few dance clubs. It might be hard to picture a Briton busting a move, but you’ll just have to spend your holiday in London and see for yourself, guvna!

Things to Do in London

You could hit the ground running, but if you don’t have a natural sense of direction after catching a flight on the fly, take a spin on the London Eye, an observation wheel located on the River Thames across the Westminster Bridge from Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. If you have a taste for the macabre, you won’t have to look far from the Eye to find the London Dungeon, a living history attraction with actors and gallows. The history doesn’t live long (as you can guess) but don’t lose your head. We never said London holidays were normal, after all. When you’re ready to return to the present day, turn the key in one of our awesome London car hire options and cruise over to check out a travelling exhibition at The O2, a space-age arena in Greenwich. While you’re in the British capital, you’ve got to haunt the halls of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square and let things get weird at the Tate Modern, since when it comes to art “modern” often means “strange”.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Save with one of our London packages, because you’ve got some splurging to do. For a little of everything from snacks to accessories, head to Covent Garden on the waterfront. Feeling fancy? Shop palace-side in Kensington, west of Soho. Marylebone may be Sherlock Holmes’ home base, but you don’t need to be a detective to find a little somethin’-somethin’ to take home.

Speaking of Marylebone, eat here. Pubs and bistros line the streets, and on a sunny day—yes, those happen in London—score a seat on a patio for brunch. Speaking of brunch, munch away the morning in Brixton, home to hole-in-the-wall cafes where you can chat with locals over some of the city’s freshest fare.

Sure, Londoners seem polished over afternoon tea, but in the mural-splashed streets of Shoreditch, you’ll get a mouthful of inventive drinks and a night of hopping from one warehouse dance floor to the next. To relax on quieter streets, scoop up London accommodation deals in the more refined City of London neighbourhood, on the north bank of the Thames.

What’s Next?

Bundle up deals with our London holiday packages. We’ve got the best airfares and accommodation; the chocolate biscuits and dungeon tours are up to you—if you’re into that.
