The Vacation of a Lifetime is Just Across the Pond
Where to Stay
When you're not out sight-seeing, relax in a luxurious 5-star hotel in the heart of London. The Covent Garden Hotel "oozes style" raves British Marie Claire. While you're here, enjoy access to room service, free high-speed wifi, a screening room, gym, and even a babysitting service for the kids! You can also have a traditional English teatime in the hotel.
Where to Dine
For high end dining, make it a point to stop at St John. The menu changes daily and is filled with locally sourced, authentic British cuisine. Whether you want to try a famous classic such as Beef Wellington, or something you've never heard of, a dinner at St John is one you'll never forget!
Things to Do
If you do nothing else, don't miss the West End. This is London's theatre district, an area that is just as famous and prestigious as Broadway. You could see Les Miserables, Mamma Mia, or Wicked. Or see Andrew Lloyd Weber's The Phantom of the Opera, the world's longest-running and perhaps most famous musical.
Things to See
Explore London's rich history. For a taste of royalty, visit Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace, and the Tower of London. Also don't miss the Globe Theater, the Big Ben, or the London Eye. These are just a few of the breath-taking landmarks of London that you won't want to miss. Want to catch a concert? See some of England's biggest bands perform at Royal Albert Hall or Wembley Stadium.
While you're staying in the birthplace of Rock n' Roll, catch some concerts! London has some of the most popular concert venues in the world, including Royal Albert Hall and the Roundhouse. Below, Queen performs for 80,000 at Live Aid in Wembley Stadium.
Where to Eat
After an afternoon of site-seeing, sit down to enjoy England's favorite food: fish and chips. Kerbisher and Malt is affordable and offers the best fish and chips on the West End of London.
Where to Shop
If you like shopping for designer clothes, London is the place for you! Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, Phillip Treacy, Temperley London, and Stella McCartney can all be found in London, just to name a few. Stop by Bond Street to find these shops and others.
