Whatever the season, Hyde Park is a must for all visitors to London. Just two miles from the hotel, Hyde Park is a tranquil place to escape London's busy streets. Hire a bike and and cycle around the park or take a rowing boat out onto the Serpentine lake. Enjoy a drink or a bite by the water at The Lido Café. Gaze at eye-catching modern art at the Serpentine Galleries, where admission is free.
Harrods in Knightsbridge might not be the place to go to find a bargain, but it's definitely a spectacle worth checking out. Just seven minutes away by Tube, this lavish, bustling department store has seven vast floors and welcomes 15 million shoppers every year. The food hall is reasonably priced and a great place to grab some tasty treats, which you can eat under a tree in nearby Hyde Park.
Don't Go Home Without
London's impressive Natural History Museum houses over 80 million scientific specimens across five collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy, palaeontology and zoology. Marvel at life-sized models of dinosaurs and whales. See real fossils and learn more about human evolution and earthquakes. The museum is just seven minutes by Tube from the hotel and entry is free.
The Tube is the fastest way to get around London. Buy an Oyster card when you arrive and you'll always pay the lowest fare on public transport. London buses no longer accept cash payments onboard. For great views of London's Canary Wharf and the River Thames, catch the Tube out to North Greenwich and take a ride on the Emirates Air Line cable car. You can pay with Oyster card.
