It’s hard to beat London for an action-packed family break. Self catering London apartments from Waytostay will make your city visit miles easier than staying in a hotel. Cook the family breakfast in the morning. Then head out to explore the sights and sounds of London. London has a fascinating history and museums can be found all over the capital. One of the most unusual ones, docked on the river Thames, is the HMS Belfast, a WW2 battleship that beings history to life. Just as interesting is the Imperial War Museum, near Vauxhall, which really gives one food for thought. The daddy of them all is the British Museum, where you’ll find everything from the Elgin Marbles to Guy Fawke’s confession. In the evening, head to the West End to see a play. Or, if you fancy seeing something by “the bard”, visit Shakespeare’s globe theatre on the South Bank where there are regular performances. Covent Garden is the draw when you’re stomach starts to rumble. For an alternative night out head to Camden, where the next big thing on the rock music scene may just be hitting the stage.
