Travelers who head across the pond for a London vacation with Marriott will find that we have hotels in desirable locations throughout the city near popular attractions, museums, shopping and entertainment venues.
Our London vacation destinations are convenient to the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Tower of London. Guests can enjoy birds-eye views of the city from the London Eye before heading over to Buckingham Palace to snap silly photos with the palace guards. Travelers will also enjoy admiring iconic Big Ben from vantage points throughout the city and visiting The Tower of London for a tour of its historic grounds.
London is a cultural mecca with ample opportunity for travelers to broaden their horizons. The British Museum offers impressive artwork collections from all over the world. While on vacation in London, visitors can witness Greek and Roman sculptures up close and personal, including fragments from the famous Parthenon. The Rosetta Stone, an invaluable key used to decipher ancient hieroglyphs, is another can’t-miss attraction for tourists visiting the museum.
No London vacation is complete without a shopping spree in any of the numerous areas throughout the city boasting excellent retail storefronts. Oxford Street offers more than 300 shops including major department stores John Lewis and Debenhams, while King’s Road is known for its funky, eclectic boutiques mixed in with designer shops and standard shopping staples. Those looking for something different need look no further than Notting Hill. The neighborhood made famous by the blockbuster hit by the same name offers vintage clothing, antiques and other eclectic, unique items including organic food and rare books.
London’s West End theatre district, aptly dubbed “Theatreland” by locals, affords visitors the opportunity to watch award-winning musicals live, including Matilda and Billy Elliot. For discount tickets, guests in the know can head to Theatre Royal Haymarket at 10 a.m. the day of the show. The theatre always withholds 13 front-row stall seats and sells them the day of the performance for less than half of the standard price. Sales are limited to two per person.
