Best London City Breaks to take this Summer

As the world reopens after the stifling coronavirus pandemic, it is time to start planning weekend getaways, city breaks and even full holidays. London is always a wonderful place to visit, offering a little bit of everything you could possibly desire. Let’s take a look at some brilliant London city breaks that you can try.


One of the oldest areas of the city, and, of course, notorious for being the stomping ground of Jack the Ripper, basing yourself in Whitechapel is an excellent way to enjoy the centre of London. You can creep yourself out on ghost tours and Ripper walks, or you can walk a couple of blocks and find the tourist heart of the city – or go a step in a slightly different direction, cut around the high-glass and steel of the City (as the business and banking district is known) and find ancient churches rubbing shoulders with Georgian townhouses, Victorian pubs and shops that have been in business of one kind or another for generations.

Little Venice

Hunting for the exotic without wanting to travel out of the UK? Little Venice is your answer. Thronging with canals – and surprisingly busy in the UK’s brief but gorgeous summer months – Little Venice has a small community ambiance and welcome, while being just walking distance from such London delights as Regent’s Park with its miles of beautifully maintained grounds and the zoo, Paddington is nearby, and there are some museums (the Sherlock Holmes Museum and Madame Tussauds amongst them) where you can while away any unexpectedly rainy days.


A serviced apartment in Soho will give you the best of all worlds: the freedom and convenience of your own place and the proximity to the best and most distinctive that London has to offer, alongside room service, housekeeping and more.

Kensington has more going for it than simply being home to some of the largest and most expensive shops in the world – although it does have those, many of them! It is also the museum district, with the V&A (Victoria and Albert), the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum all within touching distance of each other. And, a little known attraction lies within the borough’s biggest park, Holland Park. The Kyoto Gardens were designed by an eminent Japanese designer and offer a sanctuary of peace and charm thanks to the calm reflecting pools, exquisitely placed rocks and benches and colourfully flourishing trees. More than a weekend break: you will feel as though you had been teleported to the most tranquil part of Japan for a spell!

Not for nothing is London called a multicultural hotspot: careful exploration of this wonderful city can take you around the world, back in time and even to the future! Plan your trip with care and you will have a fabulous summer getaway for much less than you might expect!
