Things to Do in London After the Olympics
I recently took a trip to London - well not so recently now! My trip was right before the Olympics in June. I absolutely loved the city, and was enthralled by the people and the overall cleanliness of such a world hub! Until I have time to catch up on writing about my London adventure, read on for the best things to do in London after the Olympics, and where to stay from a guest blogger.
Millions of people flocked to London for the 2012 Olympics, and far too many of those travellers took off after the closing ceremony. London is home to some of the most amazing attractions in the world, and some visitors missed out on those sites. The London Eye is one of the tallest Ferris wheels in the world, and it offers beautiful views of the city from the top. Other London attractions worth visiting include Big Ben, Piccadilly Square, the British Museum and the Tower of London. If you prefer getting active, you can still find some great things to do.
The London Design Festival makes a return visit to the city following the Olympics. This event brings some of the top designers in the world into the city. The Landmarks Project is the highlight of the festival. Architects and designers take over many of the buildings in the city, creating radical changes and designs to each structure. Several public forums and live shows will also take place during the festival.
Booking a London hotel is an expensive task, especially if you stay for several days or weeks. The easiest way to save money on your accommodations is with a hostel. Hostels in London are communal living facilities that let you foster friendships with other guests and learn more about the city at the same time. Restup London is one of the top hostels because it offers 24-hour check in for guests. Many hostels have limited hours and a curfew, requiring guests to leave or return at specific times. With Restup London, you have more freedom to see the sites and experience the city without worrying about a return time.
