Top Tips From Our Travel Experts
"Always take a boat trip, it’s a really good value option and a brilliant way to see the city. Even if you have a coach or tube tickets, try to factor in some time to walk, you will see lots more this way and it can be quicker due to London traffic! Wherever possible travel mid-week to avoid premium prices for rail, theatre and in restaurants. Don’t forget to incorporate some free time for shopping or just soaking up the atmosphere in places like Covent Garden or Trafalgar Square. You could spend a lifetime exploring London and you would never stop being surprised. The city has something for everyone and there are unlimited treasures to be found. Best of all, it is on our doorstep."
