It’s easy to fall in love with London and wish you had a few extra days in this world-class city. Next time you have the opportunity for a long-term stay, book yourself an apartment hotel in London and feel like one of the locals.
If you’ve already been in the city for a few days and have seen the palace and all the usual Top 10 activities, make a point to see some of the more resident-only hotspots.
Start off your adventures by checking out the House of Illustration, a museum dedicated to—yes—illustrators. From drawings found in Roald Dahl books to up-and-coming artists, it a special spot that shines light on an overlooked medium. And while you can have the argument that illustrations and cartoons are the same thing, in London, they are not. Which is why there is a Cartoon Museum. Showcasing over 250 original prints from satirical drawing during the 18th century to modern superheroes, it’s a quirky centre worth a visit. If art is your thing, you may also want to take an afternoon to visit the Old Royal Naval College, which features maritime-inspired paintings on par in scope of the Sistine Chapel. After all that art-gazing, you may be in need of a snack. Head to Gabriel’s Wharf, a salty and humble piece of harbour close to the River Thames. Pick up a sandwich or some sardines as you people-watch or look out to the London skyline just ahead.
If you still have left-overs, bring them back to your hotel apartment in London. Choose a spot with an in-house refrigerator or small kitchenette, so you can save some money on eating out for dinner. Whatever amenities you’re looking for, you can find your ideal hotel in London right here on Expedia.ca. Count on steep savings as well as a wide variety so you can stay in town in true London style.
