Hassle free weekend breaks in your own home from home
Enjoy the flexibility of having a lie in and making your own breakfast
For those dashing to London for a weekend in our lively metropolis the comforts of a serviced apartment are a great sanctuary. Get up in the morning when you are ready, have a leisurely breakfast and hey presto you're ready to get out there and soak up the London atmosphere.
In London's Theatreland, Go London offer a lovely selection of studios and one bedroom apartments in charming period buildings with original features just a stone's throw from Leicester Square. You can enjoy an early pre-theatre supper in one of the huge range of restaurants nearby then wander along to the theatre nearby. Street artists abound in this area - a real gem of a place to people watch as you meander around. Trafalgar Square is nearby - a great place for strolling whatever the weather - where you can enjoy a wander round the National Gallery, a celebrated art museum. Founded in 1824, it houses a myriad collection of over 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900, altarpieces to the Impressionists. It is open daily and you can enjoy a daily guided tour on (Monday to Friday). It houses The Espresso Bar, as well as The National Dining Rooms which offers stunning views across Trafalgar Square and boasts a menu that showcases the best of British produce.
Oxford Street is the world's biggest high street, a shoppers paradise offering a mile and a half of retail opportunities in the City of Westminster in the West End of London. It runs from Tottenham Court Road to Marble Arch via Oxford Circus.
It is Europe's busiest shopping street, with around half a million daily visitors visiting some 100+ flagship stores and shops.
Whether you are looking for fashion, beauty, technology or homeware you will not be disappointed.
You can shop the very best high-street brands such as Topshop, Gap, H&M, the American Niketown, the young and hip River Island, Primark (cheap fashion) and the UK's iconic department stores including the world famous Selfridges where luxury goods are beautifully displayed, the quality retail store of John Lewis & Partners (good for fashion and electronics), Debenhams, House of Fraser and the flagship store of the ever popular, conservative Marks & Spencer.
With over 500 restaurants within five minutes' walk, you'll have plenty of dining opportunities.
Getting to Oxford Street is easy, with Marble Arch, Bond Street and Oxford Circus stations all serving this lively hub. The bus service is very good in this area. Much of Oxford Street is pedestrianised and there are, of course, plenty of black cabs around.
Most shops and department stores are open Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 9pm and Sunday from 11.30 am to 6pm. Oxford Street can be quite busy at times so to avoid the crowds it is probably best to avoid the street during the week between 5 and 6.30 pm and on Saturday afternoons. The queues to pay in shops and to access the underground are normally more dense at that time.
Leading from Oxford Street you can also enjoy the luxury shops of Regent Street towards Piccadilly Circus and take a stroll through Carnaby Street on the way and experience a taste of London's cool and trendy 60's heritage.
