One of the world’s great capitals, with outstanding cultural attractions, superb, stylish shopping, iconic heritage attractions and no end of fancy restaurants.
Still guessing? S’London innit?
Scots have been piling down to England’s capital for centuries, drawn by the endless excitement on offer in the metropolis on the Thames. Truly there is something for everybody here, from world-class classical music recitals on the South Bank to the brilliant curry houses of Brick Lane.
Today’s Big Deal break offers two nights in London in a stylish central hotel right on the Thames. Whether it’s sightseeing, shopping or culture, how you spend the time is entirely your choice. London belongs to you.
The Big Deal, exclusive to 5pm customers, offers return flights with Ryanair from Glasgow International with luggage allowance and two nights B&B accommodation, based on two sharing, in the 4* Park Plaza Riverbank.
The city breaks are for two nights, flying out from Glasgow International on Fridays or Saturdays. Available dates are from 22nd January up to and including 27th February.
Rooms by the Thames
The 4* Park Plaza Riverbank enjoys a central location by the river, a perfect base for the cultural hub of the South Bank and for popping along to gorge on the gourmet produce in Borough Market.
Guest rooms are decorated to a very high standard, with a contemporary style. Amenities include air-conditioning, high speed WiFi, flat screen TV and large en suite bathrooms
The hotel has a chic French restaurant on the ground floor serving modern cuisine with some noticeable Japanese and Californian touches.
The hotel also has a fully equipped modern gym for guest use.
We would be here all day if we listed the sights there are to enjoy in London. Each visitor will have their own priorities, and part of the joy of a London visit is discovering neighbourhoods, bars and restaurants that weren’t familiar.
Notable current cultural highlights that might appeal include the Celts exhibition in the British Museum, running until the end of January, and Sheridan Smith in an acclaimed production of Funny Girl, playing at the Menier Chocolate Factory in Southwark before its West End transfer.
The Park Plaza Riverbank has plenty of positive feedback on TripAdvisor. Recent contributions include the following, edited for length:
‘The staff were the most pleasant I have come across in a long time. Our room was lovely, view was fantastic and everything was sparkling clean, comfy bed.’
‘Great place, central location, walking distance to Big Ben. Very nice staff. Rooms very nice. Bar was lovely.’
Whether you want to take in the Christmas lights or pick up some bargains in the January sales, today’s Big Deal London break is the ideal opportunity to soak up the unique buzz of one of the world’s great cities.
This break would make a perfect gift idea for Christmas, offering the prospect of an exciting getaway in the new year, with 4* riverside accommodation in the heart of the city.
