Rich with history, culture, and stunning architecture, London is one of the most visited cities in the world. Whether you’re here for business or taking a break, book a cheap 4-star London hotel with us and enjoy more for less.
From the graceful dome of St Paul’s Cathedral to the iconic tower of Big Ben, there’s plenty to see around any 4-star London hotel. The Palace of Westminster is a beautiful Grade I listed building, awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO. Just next to the palace is Westminster Abbey, built in 1245 by Henry III, and the site of English coronations since 1066. Many royal weddings have also taken place there, including that of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Further along the River Thames is the London Eye, from which you can enjoy breath-taking views across the city on a clear day.
London’s West End, with its many theatres, is the place to catch the latest hit show, such as the thrilling War Horse or the classic Les Miserables. For the latest Hollywood blockbusters, head to Leicester Square where you can choose from cinemas such as the Odeon London, Empire, Vue, and the Prince Charles Cinema.
Shopaholics won’t have to stray far from their London 4-star hotel for some retail therapy. On Oxford Street you’ll find many high street favourites, including the flagship stores of famous names such as Primark, H&M, and Topshop. Head up to Oxford Circus and turn onto Regent Street for more popular stores such as All Saints, the Apple Store, and Hamleys.
Take a stroll along Carnaby Street for a more relaxed pace and an interesting collection of boutique and smaller stores. Famous for clothing mods, rockers, and music royalty such as The Who and The Rolling Stones during the 1960s, this street is still a beacon of style, with stores such as The Great Frog, Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green, and the Dr. Martens Store.
Housing some of the most famous pieces of art and historical objects in the world, many of London’s galleries and museums are free to enter and make for a great day out. At the British Museum, you’ll find a wealth of treasures, including the Rosetta Stone, the Elgin Marbles, and Egyptian mummies.
Art fans will love the National Gallery, with over 2,000 works on display here, including paintings by Monet and Van Gogh. You can take a free guided tour or borrow an audio guide before relaxing in the stylish café.
