The museums are least busiest in the mornings on weekdays. The Natural History Museum could fill 2 to 5 hours, or more. There are also sushi places, pizzerias, Mexican, and Thai restaurants and British pubs scattered around the area. I looked up the budget options you suggested. These prices may be based on different room types. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.
Nearby is Kensington Palace where Prince William and Prince Harry live with its beautiful gardens. Pros: Super-central location on the edge of Trafalgar Square — the best of the six Hiltons. Do you think the British Museum would be a fun and interesting outing for them — or is too much for that age? Both the Visitor Oyster Card and the regular Oyster Card can be topped up with credit at any tube station. Any day trips we should do? Both have easy and quick Underground links to the rest of London. Visitors can catch a show at the world-class London Pavilion or the Criterion Theatre or enjoy the area's bustling nightlife after the sun goes down. Sometimes very cheap, other times overpriced. Although the high prices can deter many leisure families, in the quieter periods of the year, special promotional pricing aimed at families on weekend breaks offer good value.
My 2 children whom are 8 and 12 positively loved it. Places like Trafalgar Square, Chinatown, and Piccadilly Circus are just a few blocks away. Bayswater sits on the north side of London's magnificent Hyde Park - well worth a visit at any time of year - and is made easy to reach when you're on a rail break to London with both Paddington station nearby. We have a little selfishly planned out some adult-centered activities but have time to do one attraction with our 6 year old in mind. I recently stayed at this hotel two weeks in a row and on both occasions was booked in by the same receptionist. There are many great parks in London but the is one of the best and most unique.
A longer walk from the South Kensington Museums. Upmarket stores and pretty architecture characterise Knightsbridge and with super transport links to many of the must-see sights and areas in London, you'll have the capital at your feet. Just a few steps to the attractions that line the Southbank, a short stroll from London's top markets, and a couple of Tube stops to the likes of St Paul's Cathedral and Tower Bridge - the best of London will be right on your doorstep. They have full kitchens which are equipped and ready to cook in, 2 bathrooms, and we always get a balcony there with a view of the Shard which is just 2 mins walk away. Very helpful and friendly staff. Loved reading all these tips. The Natural History Museum is geared towards visitors of all ages and has an excellent dinosaur room, among other things, while the Science Museum has lots of interactive displays, also for visitors of all ages.
However, both companies also offer free river cruises as part of their hop-on, hop-off bus ticket, while specialize in sightseeing along the River Thames, so that might be a good alternative, since the river runs through the scenic heart of London and past many main attractions. Sincerely, Tony O'Donnell Front Office Manager Our hotel has responded to the review Dear Richard M. Breakfast was nice with lots of choice and serving staff were very pleasant. It helps if the weather is nice, since you get amazing views of London from the viewing platform book online for discounts. I will share your comments with our team.
Located about 10 minutes from the , the Russell Square tube stop is also just two blocks away. All of them have high ratings, great locations, and most importantly, very low prices. Below are some ideas for what you can do in London in seven days since a visit to Harry Potter Studios is essentially a day trip. Hyde Park is an easy walk from both neighborhoods. Sincerely, Tony O'Donnell Front Office Manager Our hotel has responded to the review Dear Matthew R.
From there, you exit on the south side of the park and make your way to Harrods department store and shop for anything from Egyptian style clothing to food and drink from faraway lands. Set in one of London's busiest and most vibrant areas, our hotels near Waterloo are an excellent destination for your next short break in the capital. At Novotel, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. The gift shop has some wonderful things to buy models, photos, toys. From there you could also catch the tube to Russell Square and visit the with its incredible collection of treasures from around the world, or head up to and your pictures taken with the Royal Family, movie stars, famous musicians and other wax figures.
Charing Cross Underground Station is 5 minutes by foot and Covent Garden Underground Station is 6 minutes. The hotel was recently refurbished and is very good value for what you get. It will be the 3 of us. How can I buy oyster travel card or visitor travel pass? Top sights in the city include Big Ben, London Dungeon, and Buckingham Palace. We are thinking 2 days in London and 5 days in Paris.
The staff and very friendly and helpful. The area is very convenient, with great underground and bus connections to other parts of London. Staff were very helpful though. I can only hope it is third time lucky when I stay in a couple of week's time! You can , print the vouchers, and present them when you board the bus. By contrast, rooms are sleek, chic and contemporary, with vintage-style Lefroy-Brooks bathrooms.
