The Perfect Spring Break in London
The perfect spring break London has to offer will include certain elements, such as an event that only takes place at this time of year, and something quintessentially English, like an afternoon tea. The capital of the UK has plenty to offer visitors during the springtime. It is a relatively green city by Western standards and some of its parks are at their best in the early part of the year when its trees and bushes are in bloom. Whether you are coming in the Easter school holidays or earlier in the year, there are plenty of locations to enjoy the city's sunset, from one of London’s rooftop bars, for example. What should you plan for during your spring break in the capital to make it unforgettable?
A popular springtime attraction is the Thames Championship Course. Find a good spot on the riverside to observe some of the planet's leading rowing crews compete in it. The Head of the River Race and the Women's Eights Head of the River Race are highlights among an exciting programme. If you like sport, then how about cheering on the participants in the London Landmarks Half Marathon as it progresses around central London? Another top attraction in spring is the glorious Chelsea Flower Show which features concept gardens and new ideas in horticulture. There are also lots of Easter weekend activities, many of which are fun-filled family events that are great for children, such as Easter egg hunts.
Enjoying a cup of carefully prepared tea with scones, cakes and sandwiches is a very well established practice in London. There is no better place than the Heston Hyde Hotel’s Glasshouse Restaurant to enjoy this fine tradition. Why not sample our afternoon tea during your spring break or for another special event at this time of year, such as Mothers' Day? Our afternoon menu includes traditional English afternoon tea, Indian afternoon tea and Prosecco afternoon tea to add a little sparkle. You can enjoy the refined but informal atmosphere in comfort and in a time-honored tradition.
Getting the Accommodation Right
London might be one of the premier spring break destinations in the world, but you must find somewhere good to stay to enjoy the best of it. With a superb location for central London and onward journeys to the capital's major air hub at Heathrow, the Heston Hyde Hotel makes for an ideal base during the spring. From here, you can explore every part of the city, from trendy Camden Town to the theatres of the West End. There's a spa, a gym, an indoor pool, a bar and a restaurant to return to after a full day of exploring the city. We also have free parking plus air-conditioned and soundproofed guest rooms to help you relax in style.
