One of the great joys in life is to be able to travel to exotic and different destinations to soak up their history, culture and good food and nowhere is this truer than in London, England. London offers its visitors some of the most glorified history in the world, not to mention a host of attractions including world class theater productions and a varied and amazing night life.
Whether you are in London on business or for pleasure, finding a little bit of time to explore this charming, historical old city is a must. However, one thing that sets London apart from many other cities is that it is historically known for being a somewhat expensive city. This being said, the challenge is to book the perfect hotel room, that will give you quick and easy access to all the major attractions, but at the same time, will not completely bust your travel budget.
Thankfully, finding this hotel room is no longer the daunting challenge that it once was. Thanks to the Internet and online hotel booking sites, you can now browse all the hotels available and compare their prices -vs- location and make an informed and practical decision. Although many people would love to book their hotel directly in London, which gives close access to all the major attractions, comparison shopping is always a smart and practical move. So before booking any room, once again, you are encouraged to do your homework and make sure that you are getting the best deal possible.
London offers visitors all of the historical attractions they can possibly imagine. From Buckingham Palace to Big Ben to the National Gallery, the choices are amazingly overwhelming. However, have you considered visiting some “out of the way” attractions? In many cases, these are hidden gems that are worth seeing and will also take you out of the mad hustle of the crowds.
Consider the Brampton Cemetery, a beautiful park with jugglers and a serene atmosphere. If you are a fan of literature, visit Stoke Newington where Edgar Allan Poe went to school. How about Greenwich? Granted, these are not historical sites that are of interest to everyone, but if you are looking for something different, then consider these wonderful attractions.
Of course, you cannot visit London without doing the “tourist thing”. Here again, doing a lot of research ahead of the trip will be very helpful. Your hotel room should be considered your headquarters as you visit and travel around London – so choosing its location is your foremost priority. Once you have chosen your hotel, everything will work itself out around it which will give you the time to enjoy your trip.
