What to do in The City?

Tuesday 21 April 2015 by Leila Wright We have several apartment locations within the City of London, so here's a guide to some of the top sights and attractions to visit during your stay. We’ll even show you how close they are to your apartment!

Getting Around

Staying in a SACO serviced apartment means you’ll never be far from a tube station, and London’s efficient underground service makes it so easy to get around – here is where the apartments are in relation to the nearest tube station.

The sights

If it’s culture you’re after, the famous Victoria & Albert Museum (South Kensington Station) boasts a huge collection of art in the forms of ceramics, sculptures, paintings, architecture, fashion, dance and much more.

If you want to learn more about the city, then the London Transport Museum (Leicester Square) provides a fascinating story of the creativity of London’s transport systems that influenced not only the UK, but also the world. It is particularly interesting to discover the significance of the tube and how it inspired the future.

When in London, you would be missing out if you didn’t pay a visit to some of its famous landmarks. The London Eye (Waterloo) stands tall alongside the River Thames, providing fantastic views of the city that stretch for miles (if you have time, it is well worth waiting for a clear day to do this) – see how many other landmarks you can spot on your way around!

Buckingham Palace (Hyde Park Corner/Victoria/St James’ Park) is the spectacular home of the Royal Family – the embodiment of the British Monarchy. It stands prominently at the top of The Mall, a mile long stretch of road that has ended many famous and prestigious events – including the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

To entertain the family, head to the National Science Museum (South Kensington) for an afternoon of learning and interaction, plus you can visit the IMAX theatre on the fifth floor and watch one of the many 3D documentaries exploring the wonders of science. Whilst you’re here, you might want to visit the National History Museum (South Kensington) - sharing collections and stories about the natural creations of our extraordinary planet.

For a truly thrilling afternoon, make a trip to The London Dungeon (London Bridge), where you’ll embark on a tour around the dark streets of London to be introduced to deadly characters of the past – plus there are rides along the way to add to the excitement!
