Plan your trip to the greatest melting pot in the world, LONDON! A city filled with culture, class, kindness and adventures galore. Double-decker buses, red phone booths, the queen and her jewels… the list goes on and on. Prepare for some amazing sightseeing in good ol’ London.
Come along with Stayful as we travel to London. By the end of your visit, prepare to tell all your friends back home about your curry house and Local! (That would be an Indian restaurant and a pub… and both are a must-visit.) Cheers!
Complement your London adventures by staying at a boutique hotel that suits your unique traveling needs.
Over 13 million people call London home, making it the largest city in England. In a city this vast, picking favorites caused a few debates among the team, so we’ve compromised by providing a few personal favorites. Explore the city for yourself and when you find your fav spots, let us know!
Few things are more English than enjoying a proper cup of tea. “The Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea is my absolute fav when it’s time for tea. And in London, it’s always time for tea. Home-baked scones, pear and elderflower cocktail and a Jelly Wonderland – do I need to say more?” Take it from Lindsay – her recommendations are always spot-on!
While going to London to see a show might be an obvious choice, this is on the top of Natalie’s Must Do list. “Head to Leicester Square, and check for one of the same-day ticket store fronts. Phantom of the Opera in Her Majesty’s Theatre is a MUST!”
While everyone on the team has their own idea of what an ideal London day should be, here’s a quick list of what we all agree you should check out: the Royal Opera House, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Big Ben (“Look kids, it’s Big Ben!”), and both the Tower Bridge and the Millennium Bridge.
“My favorite way to see a new city, or even one I’ve been to many times, is running. And even if you’re not a runner, you can walk it!” Chantelle recommends starting in Hyde Park and head towards the Thames River. “There are endless trails and tunnels, and plenty of sights to see along the way!”
Kerstin loves spending a great night out around Leicester Square. "My friends took me out when I visited London in the summer. We started with a few beers and chips at Montagu Pyke, your 'typical' British pub. Then we grabbed some authentic Japanese fare at Tokyo Diner. Definitely get the Chicken Kara Fry Bento, it is amazing. There are a ton of fun bars around Leicester Square, we just hopped from one to the next, enjoying great conversation, cocktails and London at night."
