|Having lunch at Babylon in Kensington, London|
If you are a regular reader of our blog you will know we have a real soft spot for London and it's really hard to not fall in love with this vibrant, exciting and fast paced city. We are lucky enough to have a direct train from Cardiff which reaches the capital within two hours but as London is so vast and with so much to do and see we often opt for over nights or do a week long trip once a year, that way we can enjoy the city rather than rush around it in a day, which is always stressful.
London as you know can be incredibly expensive and even a short trip can rack up a fairly large bill so we always try and find somewhere to stay that is reasonable but still stylish and captures that city feeling without breaking the bank. We love simple and well designed interiors and London as a city really captures that and you don't need to spend a fortune you just need to know where to look.
As you can see the accommodation surpasses most hotels at the same price and gives you the flexibility of self catering as well as being located near main transport links as well as not deposit needed or booking fees.
Once you have your accommodation sorted London offers so much to see and do with an array of free attractions such at the Natural History museum and Tate modern for a culture fix, a stroll through one of the many green spaces such as Regents Park or looking for quirky bargains in Camden Market or painting the town in one of the trendy bars of Shoreditch, either ay you will never be short of things to do.
