The Best London Summer Staycation Ideas

It’s a fact that you can get just as much joy from holidaying on your doorstep as those classic overseas destinations, particularly somewhere as eclectic as London. From the best London beer gardens to sports screenings of The British Lions Tour to dog-friendly dining spots, there is enough happening in London this summer to suit everyone.

It would be ideal to find a hotel that also offers alfresco dining with the chance to catch up on the summer sport whilst being able to hang out with your four-legged friend, wouldn’t it? If this sounds like your kind of stay then read on.

1. Be a Tourist for a Day in Central London

We all think we know the area we live in, but how well do we truly know? Get a fresh pair of eyes for your own city, get lost in streets you’ve never been to and discover things that’ll make you see the city in a new light.

The Station Hotel in Hither Green is the perfect spot to explore from, 15 minutes away from London Bridge and minutes from nearby Blackheath village and it’s trendy shops and green spaces.

An iconic Grade II landmark in the heart of Teddington, The Park Hotel’s spacious interior and grand decor paired with its hearty and quintessentially British menu will be sure to provide with with a peaceful city break.
