London’s historical and architectural highlights
London has so many famous landmarks that it is difficult to assign one symbol that adequately represents the city. However, there are a few that are particularly iconic that you should make sure to visit from your London vacation rental.
The Elizabeth Tower, more commonly referred to as Big Ben, is one of the most photographed locations in London, and for good reason! The massive clock tower was completed in 1858 and sits at the north end of the Palace of Westminster. Big Ben is actually the name of the bell that dutifully chimes from within the tower itself.
The iconic Tower Bridge, often mistaken for London Bridge, is a Victorian masterpiece that connects the south and north banks of the River Thames. The bridge is a destination in its own right and brave visitors can choose to walk on the glass floor high above the river to gain a truly unique perspective on the city. Just across the bridge is the Tower of London, the historical palace and fortress of London originally constructed by William the Conqueror in 1078. With audio guides, reenactments and the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is a great place to visit for families and couples alike.
Art and culture near your vacation rental in London
During your stay in one of many London vacation homes there are several must-see sights for any visitor. London is a cultural hotspot and is home to many of the world’s finest galleries and museums.
The British Museum holds a massive collection of artifacts from the world’s most interesting civilizations. View the Rosetta Stone, jade from Chinese empires and Parthenon sculptures, among countless other treasures. Like all of England's public museums, a visit to the British Museum is free and offers a true journey across the globe without leaving central London.
For something more contemporary, head to the South Bank of London and visit the Tate Modern Art Gallery. The Tate Modern houses a permanent collection of some of the world’s most famous modern art pieces as well as a rotating special exhibit. The gallery is housed in a former power station and the vista from the top floor provides a dramatic view of St. Paul’s Cathedral across the River Thames. Enjoy this view along with a cup of tea from the café on the top floor after a day of art.
London vacation homes and apartments for the whole family
Though London contains many historical and cultural highlights, nearly all of these locations have been curated with families in mind.
The Natural History Museum is one of the most famous museums of its kind in the world. Located in beautiful South Kensington, the museum has free admission and contains exhibitions about the natural world that will impress children (and adults) of any age. Conveniently, the Science Museum is located right next-door and also provides hours worth of entertainment and interactive exhibits for families.
London has a wonderful choice of parks and green spaces for families to enjoy during their vacation in the city. A visit to the massive and centrally located Hyde Park is the ideal way to end a pleasant day of sightseeing in London. The park is home to the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain, which is specifically designed as a wading area for children and their families and provides a lovely backdrop and entertainment area. Bike rentals, playgrounds and plenty of open space are available throughout Hyde Park for young members of the family to release their energy.
After a day of exploring and experiencing the city, returning to your comfortable London vacation rental will feel like coming home!
