Buckingham Palace & A Visit To The Royal Mews

Going to Buckingham Palace is probably on every travel itinerary for tourists who are visiting London, especially for the first time.  The Royal Mews is just next door but is probably a less visited attraction, which I think is a real shame.  During our weekend at Hilton London Canary Wharf I really wanted to show the girls where the Queen…

Things To Do Spending 24hrs in London

London is constantly changing, ever evolving and has so much to offer, which makes choosing things to do and eat in a quick twenty-four hour time-frame pretty tough.

The London Eye At Night

Is it worth going on the London Eye at night?  That was the question I asked myself when I visited London last month. The London Eye is open until 9pm at night, and I was keen to see what the experience would be like in the dark.

My Short Break In London

London is an amazing city, and I was lucky enough to enjoy a child free break there a few weeks ago.  It was also a husband free break, as someone had to stay home and look after the kids.  I was completely footloose and fancy free, so to speak! I’ve spent a lot of time in London since being a…
