What to do in London

Heading to the capital for a big event? Why not extend your stay and make a weekend of it? Booking a hotel for a London short break makes sense, giving you a chance to explore all the sights while you’re in town.

 

But what to do while you’re here? That will all depend on who you’re spending the weekend with. If you’re in town with friends, a rummage around markets in Brick Lane or Camden is fun, while couples will find that Hyde Park is great for a romantic stroll. Here with the family? Kids will love you forever if you take them to the Harry Potter Studio, Madame Tussauds or Hamley’s

Our local guide can help you decide what to do. But no matter where you end up, your London weekend break will be all the better for booking a Premier Inn hotel. With some fabulous locations, there’s bound to be one just around the corner from whatever you want to see.
