Pre-book

Not only does pre-booking save you money but it can also save you a lot of time too. You eliminate the need to queue for a table at a restaurant or in line for any attractions and it allows you to plan out your weekend more efficiently. If there’s somewhere you’ve always wanted to try when it comes to food, then it’s always worth booking as far in advance as possible as popular places book up fast, especially on weekends. If there’s a show that you’ve always wanted to see, then booking tickets in advance is crucial, as you don’t want to risk not being able to get seats when the time comes around. If you’re not sure on where you would like to eat then sites like Open table have a lot of options and they can even provide some inspiration on where to eat!

Stay Central 

Where you stay can make a massive difference to helping you make the most of your time. Staying in a central location or at least close by to the area you think you’ll be spending your time means you won’t be spending too much of your time travelling around. If you want to stay in the centre of it all, so you can easily reach different attractions and enjoy the nightlife then Thistle Trafalgar Square is the perfect central location. Booking direct through hotels means you can normally secure a discount or at least a free breakfast. Staying centrally also means you can walk to a lot of nearby attractions, giving you a different way to see the city!

Make the most of the views 

If you want to make the most of the great weather, then get yourself over to one of the many rooftop bars located all over the city. With something to suit everyone’s budgets and styles, you don’t need to pre-book if you just want to head up for a drink or two. It’s worth considering fitting in a visit as you’ll get to see incredible views overlooking London whilst enjoying food and drink. Rooftop bars such as Roof East and the John Lewis bar are both free to access and provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy London al fresco.
