If you are visiting London on holiday with the family and you want to see all the sights, the best thing to do is to check out London serviced apartments short stay online. You will find that there are quite a number of these available right in the heart of the West End, which is exactly where you need to be, and you will save a small fortune over staying in a hotel.
You want to be in the centre of town so that everything you want to go and see is more or less on your doorstep. If you stay away from the city centre you will have to take a train or bus into town and this will take up time, especially with the way that commuter trains in the South of England have been running for the last couple of years. Unfortunate people who live in the suburbs and have to commute into London for their work every day are tearing their hair out!
In the centre, you will find that there are a lot of things that you can get to very easily just by walking. There are plenty of museums and art galleries in the West End, and the shopping is world famous. Staying in Mayfair you have Oxford Street, Bond Street, Piccadilly, Regent Street, and Knightsbridge all within a few minutes’ walk.
If you want to go and sit in the park in the sun, Hyde Park is just across Park Lane. You can go for a stroll, or you can even go horse riding, and there is a good children’s play area near the Serpentine lake with a café. If you want to attend a concert – especially the well-known “Proms” (Promenade Concerts) – the Royal Albert Hall is close by, and there are also concerts in Hyde Park in the summer.
For museums you have Madame Tussauds waxwork museum where you can meet famous people face to face. A little further away is the Tower of London which is on the “to do” list of every visitor to the city. The children will probably want to visit the famous Regents Park Zoo where you can easily spend a whole day seeing the huge collection of animals, and not far from there is Lords Cricket Ground if you are a cricket fan. Even if you are not, and have never watched a match, it is still worth going to find out what it is all about.
There is certainly plenty to see and do in Central London, and if you stay in a serviced apartment you will have all the comforts of home and save a considerable amount into the bargain.
