4 High-Tech Attractions to Enjoy While You’re in Town


London is a city which has never been shy of indulging in the latest technological innovations. Throughout its history, London has been at the forefront of enterprising new notions in the world of science, engineering and the arts – always ready to push the envelope and develop new solutions to all kinds of problems. With this in mind, it's no wonder that some of the most exciting attractions in the city have a tech-edge which is hard to beat.

We've compiled this guide to the four greatest high-tech attractions in the capital to ensure you see them all during your stay...

1. Science Museum

It really doesn't get much more high-tech than London's Science Museum, one of the city's biggest and best tourist attractions. The venue can get pretty busy, so visiting in the evening is recommended to beat the rush - but it's well worth navigating the crowds so you can grab a sneaky peak at some of the innovations on display.

Whether you have a passion for science or simply want to see the spectacular exhibitions which the museum has become known for, then this makes for a great day out. The Science Museum is a big hit with younger visitors, so be sure to take young guests along during your stay at the Montcalm Finsbury Square.

2. London Eye

The London Eye might not seem like the most 'high tech' attraction in the city, but this enormous Ferris Wheel is powered by clever engineering, which allows it to give countless visitors a bird’s eye view of the city day after day.

From your own modern pod, you can enjoy a leisurely trip or combine with a variety of experiences, including provisions for celebrating birthdays and special events. For guests at our 5 star hotels in London, the London Eye is still one of the most unmissable high-tech experiences there is.

3. Bletchley Park

A short trip away from London, Bletchley Park provides an impressive window on the techie world of decades past. It was here that during WW1 that scientists and technologically-minded people were recruited to help hack codes and help the war effort. Alan Turing pioneered his famous enigma machine here, and you can still see it on display while you stay at The Montcalm Finsbury Square. A trip to Bletchley Park provides a window on a critical time in the UK's history, and the technology which helped sway the events of the 20th century.

4. Camera Museum

For those arty visitors to London hoping to find out more about one of their favourite subjects, then a visit to the city's Camera Museum is an absolute must. Whether you're a dedicated photographer or would just like to find out more about the mechanics of taking a great photo, this is the place to be! There's camera equipment on display from the 1800s right through to present day, as well as plenty of tools to help you better understand some key camera lingo.
