London has much to offer the tourist and apart from the Olympic Games to be held here this summer, look for other attractions that this city offers up. For example take a tour around the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, Britain’s oldest manufacturing company, where Big Ben and the Liberty Bell were cast.
Very near to Victoria Park there are countless art galleries, or maybe walk down the towpath that borders the park where you will come to Three Mills Island, with its magnificent tidal 18th century House Mill.
Take a trip to Greenwich, which off the beaten track has a rural feel, with country lanes, in this area some of the Olympic events will be held, and of course Greenwich market will be in full swing. Little known to the tourist is Thames Barrier Park, with its spectacular views of the Thames flood barrier, there is nowhere quite like it in London.
Other venues in London that will host Olympic events is Earls Court and Wimbledon, no prizes for guessing which sport they will be playing here, but beside tennis this area is worth exploring. Wimbledon Common is famous as the home of the Wombles, but less known is the Windmill Museum which also gives a history of scouting, and of course Wimbledon Village has many continental cafes and bars.
Hyde Park is handy for the tourist wishing to visit the Natural History Museum and Royal Albert Hall, and for lesser-known treasures Apsley House at Hyde Park Corner is the former home of the Duke of Wellington and has an impressive art collection and a giant nude statue of Napoleon.
The Lord’s cricket ground hosts the Olympic archery, but these lovely areas has plenty to interest the tourist, have your photo taken on the world’s most famous pedestrian crossing on Abbey Road, and very near to this is the wonderful Ben Uri Gallery which specializes in Jewish art.
Visiting London this summer with so many tourists from around the world accommodation is at a premium especially in London hotels, the alternative is to share with friends or family serviced apartments in London.
These apartments are perfect, self contained with either one, two or three bedrooms, if visiting London it makes sense to stay in serviced accommodation London, also used as business accommodation in London so has to be a very high standard.
A spokesman for Dolphin House which is part of the Dolphin Square complex said “luxury serviced apartments London do not come any better than what we have to offer, we are located in Westminster and traveling around London is made easy for the tourist, by having an underground station a walk away, also regular buses around the city. Our apartments are furnished to a very high standard, and are completely self-contained, but yet you have the same facilities as a stay in a top London hotel, with reception and 24 hour security cover”.
