Enjoying a Weekend in London
For some people a weekend break is just enough to let them recharge their batteries. If you haven't been away for a while you can certainly feel the benefits of a weekend away in a big city, with the lights and activities surrounding you from all directions.
And what better place could there be to head for than London, with its landmarks and plentiful activities to enjoy? If you haven't been before you will be in for a real treat. If you have you can still find new things to do regardless of whereabouts you may have been before.
Firstly you should consider where you want to stay. There are some delightful Marble Arch hotels in London that would be ideal for visiting landmarks in that area and beyond. You might choose the Shaftesbury Metropolis, or possibly a hotel in another part of the capital. Whatever you go for you are assured of having a pleasant stay.
It might also be worth considering what you want to do while you are in London. A common activity for many people is to have dinner and then catch a show. You will need to book theatre tickets quite a way in advance for the most popular shows, particularly if you want to get good seats. You can also enjoy dinner and some outlets will book a deal which provides you with dinner and a show for a good price. It's worth looking into.
Of course there are plenty of other things you can do in London. The activities you choose will depend partly on the time of year. If you are visiting close to Christmas you might want to visit Oxford Street to see the shops and the Christmas lights. Make sure you visit the big department stores as their window displays are usually very good indeed.
In the summer you can take advantage of a river cruise. These take place during the day as well as the evening, so you can choose whether you want to cruise under the stars or see the city by daylight. Then it's back to your choice of Marble Arch hotels London or to the Shaftesbury Metropolis to enjoy a relaxing night's sleep in your room.
As you can see it pays to plan ahead when you are considering spending a weekend in London. While it might be nice to leave things fairly loose to see what takes your fancy once you get there, it is good to have a vague idea of what you want to do. This will make it easier to choose the most appropriately located hotel so you know how far you are from the main landmarks. Then all you have to do is enjoy the experience.
