Everyone loves going to London. The trouble is, a single night in a good hotel can cost you an arm and a leg. With Omega, though, you don’t need to go out on a limb.
From just £259.95pp* we can offer a FIVE day break in London in a top 4 star hotel with breakfast, including travel to and from your area and even a couple of optional excursions thrown in. At that price your only problem is deciding what to do with all that time in the capital.
‘Ten Peak’ Challenge
Did you know that ten of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK are all in London, mostly free, and within a mile or two of each other? You can do ten in a week without brandy, a compass and mountain rescue, can’t you? Of course you can!
Six of the Best
Not just of London, or even the UK, but the world. The Science, the V&A, the Natural History, the British, the National Maritime, and the Imperial War. Museums, that is. You’ll find the first three of these right next to each other, and the others are just a few tube stops away. And they’re all free entry.
Harrods, Selfridges and, of course, Harvey Nicks for some Bolly. Go forth and multi-buy, darling!
Your challenge is to walk the Monopoly Board of famous place names including Piccadilly, Pall Mall, Oxford Street, Leicester Square and the Angel, Islington, plus all the stations. This is one time you can land on Mayfair without it costing you all your little green houses. You won’t need Free Parking either and you can skip the Utilities. Just make sure you don’t Go To Jail!
Before there was Downton Abbey, there was Upstairs Downstairs. Start from the TV location in Eaton Square and work your way round one of the most exclusive and expensive square miles on Earth, where practically every street is a celebrity and residents don’t order their Rolls with butter. Sloane Ranger your way across Cadogan Gardens, cruise the mews in Kensington and count the Bentleys in Belgravia. Take a walk on the posh side!
One recommends Buckingham Palace...
Even if you’re not keen to pay the entrance fee and join the queues for Buck House, it would surely be remiss to miss the Changing of the Guard, which takes place in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace at 11.30 every day in summer and alternate days in winter. It’s free to watch and lasts about 45 minutes.
Take a boat trip or water taxi to see the floating museum of HMS Belfast and the Cutty Sark (trouser outfits are best if you want to clamber around inside these ships). Star gazers shouldn’t miss the chance to go round the Greenwich Observatory and Planetarium.
