Holiday Letting in London for your short break
You could spend a lifetime discovering the different sides to the capital. So how do you make the most of short family holidays in London? One answer is to live the city the way Londoners do. With so many great vacation rentals, you can discover a home-from-home in an amazing patchwork of neighbourhoods and start exploring from your front door. The sheer variety of home stays and holiday homes in London could leave you stuck for choice. For some, it's all about being near the glitzy West End, with the reassurance of a comfy bed, away from the bright lights, at the end of the evening. However, holiday apartments in London might also include a new waterfront penthouse in the rejuvenated Docklands, a discreet pied à terre in a chic corner of Marylebone, or even a rare find: holiday flats in the heart of the busy City itself. Further from the bustle of the centre, it's easy to see why people consider this a city of villages. Search for 'holiday houses in London', and you could be waking up in a handsome Victorian townhouse in Islington, in a mews cottage in Kensington, or a short stroll from the smart streets of Hampstead or Blackheath. Few visitors would hope to discover holiday cottages in London, but they're there if you know where to look. Don’t overlook the self-catering holiday lets in London's quieter outer districts - especially those with good Tube, DLR or Over ground links. Along the Thames, maritime Greenwich and leafy Richmond and Kew offer holiday homes in London with a charm and character that will have you planning your next visit.
Best time to enjoy London
Whether you're planning summer holidays or just bank holidays in London, you need to take in the 'must-sees'. An expensive tourist tour is one option, but with an Oyster card and a bit of planning on the Transport for London website, you can admire most of your checklist from a double-decker bus: Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and the mighty dome of St Paul's. Even if you're only planning a short break in London, the capital is packed with exciting things to do, so enjoy any sunshine while it lasts and explore on foot: a lovely riverside walk runs from Tower Bridge to the Houses of Parliament. You'll find historic ships - the HMS Belfast and the Golden Hinde - plus Shakespeare's reconstructed Globe Theatre, a free tour of the Tate Modern art gallery, and music and movies at the British Film Institute and the South Bank Centre. With the predictably unpredictable British weather, a rainy-day Plan B is worth having. South Kensington's museums transform children into scientific explorers, charting history from the dinosaurs to the discovery of space. A word of warning, however: visiting the big sights during school holidays in London can try everyone's patience, so make the most of early starts and occasional evening events to beat the queues. For many visitors, the traditional attractions in London take second place to shopping. Be dazzled by Bond Street's jewellers and fashion houses and admire the old-world style of Fortnum's and Jermyn Street. The open-air Borough Market can claim to be the birthplace of Britain's food revolution: try Thursday or Friday for some exquisite (if expensive) grazing. And it may feel a world away from the West End, but Columbia Road's quirky combination of Sunday flower market and stylish boutique, captures much of up-close London: bustling, cool and full of unexpected sights.
