Summary: Tourists need to plan their holiday to London to save money on transport, attractions and eating out as the city can definitely be visited on a budget.
Heading on holiday anywhere around the world can be an expensive break if visitors do not plan properly. There are plenty of excellent ways tourists can save money when they venture to a place like the vibrant city of London. Buying flight tickets at a certain time of year is vital as this could save money. If travellers are taking children on vacation then they must book in advance to reduce the rate of tickets. Tourists should think about arriving in London in the winter months when flights are slightly cheaper than the busy summer period. When in the UK travellers should think about what they want to do and then plan their trip accordingly.
If tourists love culture and the arts then they are in luck as there are a number of venues in the city that are free to visit. Kensington is a superb place to start as it offers a few excellent institutions including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum. They are both great for young visitors as there are plenty of activities available. The great National Gallery and Tate Modern are the best places to head to for art and the British Museum also provides an interesting day out. There are also many smaller museums and galleries dotted around the capital that are worth checking out during a stay in the centre of London.
Eating out is a lot of fun in the English capital as there are just so many different places to head to for food. The city has many nationalities living there so this is reflected in the world cuisine on offer. Many chain restaurants offer deals for lunch or evening meals so tourists should look out for these vouchers and use them on their trip. Visiting the capital means tourists will definitely head out shopping. Apart from the usual high street destinations they must visit the city’s popular and vibrant markets in Notting Hill, Camden and Greenwich. Here they will find something different and hopefully come across some bargains.
There are a number of excellent hotels in Sussex Gardens in the area of Paddington and one that is really lovely is the Kingsway Park Hotel. It offers beautiful rooms with a huge array of modern amenities including a plasma television, telephone and complimentary Wi-Fi internet. The en-suite bathrooms are very spacious and include baths and showers as well as containing hairdryers. Room sizes available at the hotel include triple, quadruple and family size living spaces for travellers heading to the English capital in a large group.
Getting on the tube can seem like a great idea to travellers to quickly get from one sight to another. It might be however tourists can save money by walking as many tube stations are actually quite close to each other. A great example is Oxford Circus and Green Park tube stations, which are near to each other and easy to walk between. It is obviously a good idea to avoid using taxis when in London as they can be costly, and tourists may end up being caught in a traffic jam. The English capital is an expensive place to take a trip, but it does not have to cost that much if travellers plan their way around the city when on holiday.
