Rediscovering London

Buckingham Palace

All my life ive lived close to London but I have never visited some the major attractions like London Zoo and Madam Tussauds. I think I must be really missing something seeing as so many tourists come especially to see these famous attractions. So, as of this weekend, im going to promise myself that I am going to visit London once a month and experience some of the things right under my nose and report back to you on the most interesting attractions and the best value for money days out in London. Buckingham place seems like a good place as any to start. I’ve just found a good deal on www.lastminute.com. for only £30 you can get admission to Buckingham Place including, state rooms and gardens (usually 14 pounds) and champagne afternoon tea at the newly refurbished Windsor lounge of the 5 star Athenaeum Hotel (usually £28 pounds). I’m going to be there this Saturday stuffing myself, in the most elegant manor possible, with scones and cucumber sandwiches.

    […] Ok so I promised that I was going to “rediscover london” this weekend by taking advantage of lastminute.com’s offer on entrance to Buckingham place and afternoon tea at the athenum – well does spending the weekend in London hotel count as resdiscovering London? – I honestly went there with the intention with going to the palace it was just too wet! Anyway I did discover a nice boutique hotel. Its called 41 and with only 20 rooms and 4 suites it’s really for the elite. Its on Buckingham Palace Road so it’s a stones throw from some of the best attractions – yes, like Buckingham Palace – and a great location for shopping in Oxford Street, Mayfair or Knightsbridge. This five star hotel has an impressive library style lounge complete with roaring fire and an open bar which you can help yourself to and pay for via an honesty box. The hotel offers four suites which are spilt level with dinning area on the bottom floor leading up to large sleeping area with state of the art entertainment equipment but the most impressive feature of the grand suite was its glass ceiling, which must be nice on a clear day!

    […] A couple of months ago we wrote a post on Rediscovering London – many tourists come over especially to see famous attractions and yet for those of us who live here, we can’t seem to find the energy to make a special effort to actually go ourselves. I’ve come across a great map of London tourist attractions so now there’s no excuse not to go and see what all the fuss is about! The map allows you to plan your route so you can fit in as much as possible. Bookmark to:           […]
