The Tourist Capital of Britain

London is the ultimate city stay, with so much to do and see. And now could be a great time to enjoy what you love, without the crowds.

Our colourful capital city offers visitors a playground for all types of people – historical adventurers, late-night party owls, fashionistas and gourmet dish Instagrammers. And with over 28 hotels dotted all around the Capital, we have pretty much every corner covered. Whether you want to take advantage of the quieter-than-usual attractions, or simply get out and see the sights.

If you haven’t already, visiting the London’s landmarks is a must. A hop-on hop-off bus tour offers a great overview of all the major places to visit in London. Head back to the river for a tour of Westminster Abbey, where monarchs have been crowned since 1066. Opposite are the famous Houses of Parliament. Take a tour inside this mouldering legend to learn about the House of Commons, the House of Lords and their arcane rituals, or simply admire it and the Big Ben tower from nearby Westminster Bridge.

There’s also plenty of hidden gems to enjoy too. With hidden corners of the city and off-the-beaten-track treasures to explore. One of them is London’s Little Venice, a scenic and colourful canal area nestled between Paddington and Camden. For even more colour, head to Neal’s Yard, a real hidden gem filled with beautiful bookstores and quiet tea rooms. Take a seat and take in the unique surroundings.

For some simple fun, why not picnic in one of London’s best parks? Best of all, there’s usually a Hilton hotel just a stone’s throw away. DoubleTree by Hilton London – Docklands Riverside gives you great access to open spaces such as Royal Greenwich Park. While Hilton London Hyde Park puts you a stone’s throw away from the renowned Hyde Park.
