London City Breaks
Not all European city breaks involve flying abroad. Come with us at Co-operative Travel, and discover our vibrant historic capital of London. From Nelson’s Column to the Houses of Parliament, we have the best bargain city breaks to London in town.
The city is an international centre of business, commerce and finance, so planning weekend breaks in London is no problem at all. Fly, drive or let the train take the strain, cheap London city breaks are always available, in countless hotels large and small. Add to that the numerous guest houses, self-catering apartments and B and Bs, and you can book a short trip to London and be enjoying the sights the same day.
On London package city breaks, take advantage of the superb – and cheap – public transport system. The Underground is best, whisking you from Tower Bridge to Oxford Circus in no time at all. In the evenings, London Walks offer a cheap and fascinating way to discover what all those quaint old London names mean, or where the ghosts of Jack the Ripper’s victims can be found.
St Paul’s Cathedral was one of the few city buildings to survive the WWII bombings, but beyond the glittering Square Mile you’ll discover the city’s oldest area. History lovers booking London city breaks should visit the London Museum, in the Barbican, to discover the capital’s vibrant past. The Barbican itself is today a labyrinth of chic shops, restaurants, wine bars and live music venues, but the magnificent 12th century Guildhall, and remnants of the original Roman Wall, are close by.
If you want entertainment, we at Co-operative Travel have last minute London city breaks with tickets to everything from Shaftesbury Avenue shows to concerts at the Royal Festival Hall. On top of which there’s countless museums and galleries, from South Kensington to the Tate Modern. All bargain city breaks to London should include a guided tour of highlights like Big Ben, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace. Or book weekend breaks to shop till you drop at Oxford Street and Covent Garden.
