Group Accommodations in London
Things to do with your group in London
London is a modern, cosmopolitan city brimming over with new ideas, but its history goes deep – all the way back to the Roman empire, in fact. That many millennia gives a city a knack for grand architecture, and London delivers all the European goodness you’ve come to expect from the storybooks: grand boulevards, cherub-studded palaces, marble arches, stone fortresses, and beautiful bridges. Your London travel plans must include at least a stroll past the stars: Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and the Tower Bridge.
Add to that all the tremendous museums, with some of the world’s best collections of art, design and natural history. See mummies and the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum, dinosaurs in an incredibly grand setting at the Natural History Museum, European masterpieces of art at the National Gallery, and modern art from 20th-century masters like Matisse to incredible new installations at the Tate Modern. Plus museums for film, for maritime heritage, for transportation, and more. If you have an interest, there’s probably a museum for it somewhere in London.
That’s plenty for one vacation, right? Oh, but we haven’t talked about the theatre yet. London’s West End theatres shouldn’t be missed—it’s the largest theatre district in the world.
And how about literary history? From Shakespeare to Harry Potter, there’s no lack of literary landmarks in the city. Visit Shakespeare’s Globe, a recreated Globe Theatre with daily performances of Shakespeare classics in its outdoor playing space, plus spoken-word, music and other performances in its other venues.
And of course there’s incredible shopping for everything from vintage clothes to designer labels, royal events like the Changing of the Guard and the Horse Guards Parade, sightseeing in historic districts and sails on the River Thames, amazing multi-cultural dining and traditional English pubs, even day-trips to see Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and the beautiful historic spa city of Bath!
