After the year we have had, we all need a break. So while many are leaving the capital searching for a holiday, others are considering spending the summer visiting London! So what has London got to offer the visitor this summer?
The UEFA Euro 2020 is in full swing for the next four weeks. Our hotels, Best western Wembley, and Euro Hotel Wembley, are on the doorstep of Wembley stadium. Wimbledon is the big event during the summer for Tennis fans; strawberries and cream along with a glass of Pims is a must! Keep an eye on updates for this. How about some boxing at the O2?
Being entertained is how your evenings should be spent, and London’s Theatres hold some of the finest shows on earth. Many of them are reopening soon, and players are eagerly looking forward to treading the boards.
Museums and Galleries
Harrods is the epitome of deluxe shopping; even if you just have a spot of ‘window shopping’ in this immense store, you will be enthralled and entertained. Be aware that there are “Browsing only” times between 11:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Knightsbridge will dent your pocketbook; however, you will treasure the items forever. Hamleys on Regents street is a toy palace; let your kids see their wildest dreams, make sure to give them a budget to spend in here. With over 300 shops, Oxford Street will have your feet aching and your arms loaded with goodies. BW London Peckham is under 5 miles from this iconic street and has its own lively community to explore
History, Mystery and mayhem
Packed with tours ranging from the White Tower to Carnaby street and Whitechapel Ripper tours. London has plenty to offer those with more eclectic tastes. The Royal Palaces have plenty of history to offer, plus the chance of glimpsing our Queen or other royal personages. The London Dungeon will bring alive the tales of blood, guts and gore. A visit to 221b Baker street may not mean you can bump into the famous detective, but the museum there is open again. Madame Tussauds is not far away either, and there you will find many of the characters to whom we have just alluded.
Music and nightlife
As a 24hr city, we can offer hospitality throughout the full circle of the clock. Wembley Stadium is home to many concerts and music tours. In addition, the Royal Albert Hall hosts its 150th Anniversary on the 19th of July.
Hyde Park is a big draw for visitors. With extensive lawns and the controversial ‘speakers corner’, do visit on Sundays for this spectacle. You can get a feel for the Great Exhibition in the Crystal Palace in this virtual tour. Our hotel, BW Queens Crystal Palace, is near Crystal Palace Park. Greenwich Park and the Royal Observatory is well worth a visit. On the edge of Clapham Common, you’ll find our Clapham hotels, The Belvedere and South Dudley.
Bring the Family!
As you can see there is so much for all the family to see and do during the summer visiting London, we have some fantastic Family rooms in most of our hotels, these are a cost-effective way of staying in the city.
Want to stay longer?
Our Aparthotels are perfect for a longer stay in the city. Try out living in London, or take an extended holiday to see everything. Retirees and students, on summer breaks from Uni, delight in staying in these upgraded rooms. With mini-kitchens and ensuite facilities, extra storage space, they are well suited for a summer-long stay.
