London is a diverse and definitive destination brimming with places to visit this summer. Whether you visit from overseas or from elsewhere on the island, the UK has something for everyone. Here are just some of the most highly rated locations to visit, as well as luxurious hotels to stay at.
The City of London
Central London offers a wide array of cultural events, ranging from the National Portrait Gallery, to a simple River Thames cruise. Other points of interest include Westminster Tower (Big Ben) and St. Paul’s cathedral, which can be viewed from the London Eye.
All of the above are near the Corinthia Hotel, making it the perfect respite. With 283 bedrooms, including 51 suites, the Corinthia boasts under-floor heated marble bathrooms and tropical rain showers. There is plenty to enjoy, including a spa lounge, live music bar and a BodySPace gym open all hours.
West of the Thames
There are plenty of museums and culinary delights just west of the Thames. Baker Street is home to The Sherlock Holmes Museum, whilst the Natural History Museum offers a cathedral of 80 million items from earth science and history.
Located just a stone’s throw from Baker Street, The Landmark London is a sophisticated and serene point of recuperation. The hotel offers various suites and spas should the nearby Regent’s Park not prove relaxing enough. It also encourages younger users to take photos of “landmark moments” whilst staying at the luxury hotel, utilising Instagram with gusto. Credit to the Landmark London’s website for the blog image.
Around and Afar
For those searching for political history, The Imperial War Museum houses Churchill’s War Rooms. If your city visit is more family-focused, then a trip to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter may suit better.
Raddison Blu Edwardian (Edwardian Hotels Group)
The Raddison Blu Edwardian, London, encompasses a group of contemporary hotels that scatter the city, including a five-star hotel in Manchester. Belonging to one of the world’s leading hotel groups, Edwardian Hotels, Raddison Blu prides itself on its partnership with the National Theatre, The Hallé Orchestra and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
