If you are looking for a low season London value break – look no further!

Based at Staines, to the south west of London,  just 40 minutes drive into Central London, this London value break allows you to stay at a low price but still have the chance to explore London.

We have a wide selection of additional items for you to add onto your accommodation package to really enhance your stay. Visit some of London’s iconic sights such as the Tower of London, The London Eye or St Paul’s Cathedral. Take a trip on the London Eye or the high-speed lift to the top of the Shard – the tallest building in Western Europe. A relaxing cruise on the River Thames with a live commentary – don’t worry the boats are all-weather and heated!

In the evenings you can take in a West End Show, and maybe a pre-theatre dinner, or alternatively take dinner in your hotel – the choice is yours, and we will delighted to discuss the best add-ons to make your trip a success.


Limited availability on selected weekends January to March 2019

Suggested itinerary

Day 1: Friday

Arrive in London

Arrive in London and either go straight to your hotel in Staines and check in then head for Central London, or maybe go straight to London.

An afternoon of sightseeing or maybe a pre-theatre dinner followed by a show – Friday nights can be much better value than Saturdays nights!

Alternatively for something more relaxing, how about a stroll around Kew Gardens or Hampton Court Palace. The Musical Museum and Museum of Steam and Water are also all to the west of London, as is Windsor and the Castle, which are a fairly short drive from your hotel.

Dinner can be arranged in the hotel if required (dinner from £18.00 per person).

Day 2: Saturday

London – a day to explore

Enjoy a full English breakfast in your hotel and then the day is yours to explore!  We have lots of suggestions (see below for prices).

From a trip on the Thames, a visit to the Tower of London, Madame Tussauds, a trip up the Shard, visit to Greenwich, the British Museum, the Imperial War Museum. The list goes on, and we will be pleased to offer suggestions and provide a quote.

In the evening, we can suggest a visit to the theatre (though Friday is usually cheaper) or how about a meal at Planet Hollywood? Alternatively we can arrange dinner in the hotel if required.

Day 3: Sunday

Return home – maybe still time to explore

Enjoy breakfast in your hotel, and then you still have time to explore.

Perhaps you will travel back into London for additional sightseeing or attractions, or one of the attractions to the West of London?
