Visiting the United Kingdom

If you are planning a visit to Britain in the near future, I would suggest that you head for London. There is so much to see and do, you will really be spoilt for choice with regards where to visit. If you are one for sightseeing and have a keen eye for architecture, I would suggest heading into the centre of town. You can marvel at the intricacies of The Houses of Parliament, admire the domed roof of St Paul’s Cathedral and listen to your voice echo in the vestibule of Westminster Abbey. You can also take a walk along the river and view the London Eye which seems to reach as high as the sky when viewed from the ground, or you can take a tour of the Saatchi Gallery in which you will see quality modern art by a rotating selection of artists.
If you are looking for somewhere to have some food I would suggest either going to the restaurant in the Royal Festival Hall if you are on a medium budget or maybe enjoying a Waggamama’s by the water’s edge if you are on a pauper’s budget. If you have cash to splash then there are numerous superb restaurants in which to splash it: you can enjoy the modern British cuisine of The Ivy where you are quite likely to rub shoulders with some familiar famous faces, or you can climb the two hundred and seven steps of the Oxo Tower (or take the lift) from where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view over the city while enjoying your meal of braised veal followed by chocolate pudding.
If you are visiting with the children however, the capital might not be the most suitable place to take them because the rushing hub-bub of the city can be too much for younger senses. If this is the case, I would suggest you head for Alton Towers in Windsor, a short train ride from London. You can also get Alton Towers hotel deals by having a look online – just google ‘Alton Towers hotel offers’ and you will be presented with a myriad of places to stay that are cheap and can accommodate the whole family.
