Sightseeing in London and London Hotels

My plan had been to go and stay in London for a week during the summer holidays, or at least a weekend this summer.

I have a lot of plans…not all work out.

I have been to London a few times with school, later with uni friends, but I am yet to go sightseeing with the family.

I still haven’t been on the London Eye and so want to experience that.

We would also love to visit:

Madame Tussauds,


Piccadily Circus

Trafalgar Square

Natural History Museum

Covent Garden

And thats just the start.

Rather than trying to cram everything into one day, or just do a few things on one day and then go home, the best thing is to book a hotel and experience things at your leisure.

There are plenty of hotels in London but an ideal one would be one that is reasonably priced but still comfortable. This is where Travelodge seems ideal.

Their rooms are also currently being refurbished and have king sized beds along with:

  • En-suite bathrooms with shower (and baths in most)
  • Set of fresh white towels (bath and hand towel)
  • Spacious desk
  • TV with up to 17 channels
  • Tea and coffee making facilities
  • Hand, hair & body wash

And if you have a little one, a travel cot is available upon request which is suitable for up to 24 months.

All you need as a family, as if you are planning to be out and about most of the time you are only really going to come to the hotel to sleep!

When we went to Turkey in April I had been looking to book a hotel as our flight was early in the morning. Travelodge at that time was working out to be one of the cheapest so clearly Travelodge prices are competitive. And with over 50 London Travelodges, you are spoilt for choice.
