The RLH is one of the best places for your next big event or meeting – but once it's over, you may want to stick around as London offers so much for you to see and do. From historic attractions to great shopping destinations, we've compiled this quick guide to the top five things you need to see in the city during your visit.
1. The London Eye
Since appearing at the turn of the new millennium, the London Eye has become one of the UK's top tourist attractions, as well as an iconic sight in the city skyline. The slow pace of this giant Ferris wheel makes for a leisurely way of seeing the city from a unique vantage point. Offering an array of fantastic experiences like enjoying a bird’s eye view of London with champagne or renting a private pod, this is definitely something which should be on your 'to do' list after your next meeting or event at the Montcalm Hotel Finsbury Square.
2. Houses of Parliament
Sometimes known as Westminster palace, the Houses of Parliament are an imposing sight beside the River Thames, as well as being the UK's major seat of government. You can take a tour of the venue inside, but prepare for big queues and high security. Alternatively, it's a very impressive building from the exterior, so even just a stroll alongside after a meeting provides the ideal way to relax and unwind while making the most of our latest London hotels special offers.
3. Buckingham Palace
No trip to the city is complete without a quick look at Buckingham Palace. During the summer months, the state rooms are open to the public – but for the rest of the year this is still well worth seeing, from the daily changing of the guard to the building itself. As the official residence of the Queen, the palace is imbued with plenty of the UK's history, and visitors from all over the world flock here to get closer to the country's heritage.
4. Trafalgar Square
Another of London's most impressive sights, Trafalgar Square is a major meeting point in the city. Home to famous statues and commemorations such as the Trafalgar monument, there's so much to see here you can easily spend plenty of time exploring during your stay at the Montcalm Hotel Finsbury Square. From locals on their lunch break to tourists seeing the sights, this is an area where you can expect to find pretty much everyone.
5. Piccadilly Circus
Known for its bright advertising signs, this iconic junction in London is one of the city's most famous destinations, so it's definitely worth a look during your stay. Ringed by all sorts of great cafes and eateries, you can grab a post-meeting snack or indulge in some nearby shopping – helping you relax and unwind or providing a new experience following your next big event.
