Explore London from holiday homes to rent

As England's capital city, London thrives as a global hub for business, culture, the arts and history. Each neighbourhood is teeming with unique shops, swanky bars and cosy cafes, and a thriving multicultural restaurant scene easily dispels any rumours about British cuisine. You'll find loads to discover in this bustling city, and the hardest choice will be narrowing down location possibilities for London vacation rentals. With world-class museums, iconic concert halls and hectares upon hectares of green parks to explore, you'll be hard-pressed to ever tire of this bustling, buzzing city.

Things to do

Attractions near London holiday rentals

London is a feast for all senses – and all ages, too. After taking in the sights from the top of the London Eye, visit the penguins and their mates at the neighbouring SeaLife Aquarium, or head to Regent's Park and tour the London Zoo. For the culture vultures in your crew, it'll seem impossible to narrow down your museum picks. Consider which London vacation rentals are closest to each, and choose from among the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, the VIctoria & Albert, the National Portrait Gallery – and over 200 other options!

Activities

What to do near London holiday homes

London's sprawling layout can make it confusing for visitors, so consider a cruise down the Thames or a ride on a famous double-decker bus for a hop-on, hop-off tour of the city's top sites. Between the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Big Ben's chimes and the shopping on Regent Street, you'll have the lay of the land in no time. London is also known for its vast array of in-demand cultural attractions, from concerts at the Royal Albert Hall to shows on the West End, so consider booking tickets before your trip.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in London holiday homes

London is known for its grey and rainy weather, but with a bit of planning, you might just get to experience British weather at its best. You should most definitely pack an umbrella, wellies and a raincoat no matter when you visit, but you're more likely to find long, sunny days waiting for you from early summer through early autumn. Understandably, June through September is also peak season, when crowds are thicker and prices are higher. Autumn and winter are wet and chilly, with shorter, darker days, but you're also more likely to find London vacation rentals going for lower prices.

Family friendly
