London truly comes alive over the bank holiday weekend. With so much to do, see, taste, and enjoy, it can be hard to plan the perfect day out. No worries though, we’ve done it for you…


Grab a top-deck seat on our London Bus Tour, and take in the city from a different perspective. Hop on and off at your leisure, learning many fun facts along the way.

Hop off for BRUNCH

With brunch becoming an ever more popular pastime in London, you’ll be spoilt for choice wherever you hop off. Eggs Benedict, breakfast tapas, the bottomless kind, be sure to start your day the right way.

Some particular faves:

Balthazar, Covent Garden
A New York institution brought to London, Balthazar’s grand setting is one to admire as well as the brunch. Eggs any which way, followed by something sweet from their very own bakery.

Dishoom, Carnaby

Brunch in Bombay will get you fired up for the day. Traditional dishes given a twist. Expect chilli on your eggs, and your bacon served in naan. One for the more adventurous foodie.

Granger & Co, King’s Cross

Bill Granger’s bright and airy concept follows through to his food. Think broken eggs, sourdough bread and sunny smoothies to set you up for the day.

Treat yourself to something nice this bank holiday weekend.

Begin at Oxford Street, for high street finds from British brands and international.

Meander over to Mayfair and splash out on something a little more extravagant.

Finish up at Covent Garden’s markets where you’ll find something a little different.

Hop off for A MOMENT OF CALM

Take a minute away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy a spot of sunshine (hopefully!) and a moment of calm in one of London’s secret gardens. Head away from the car horns to one of the city’s lesser-known green spaces.

Shhh! it’s a secret…

St John’s Lodge Gardens, Regent’s Park

End your day al fresco, and really make the most of the warmer weather. Why not…

Take in a film outdoors
Outdoor cinemas pop up throughout London during the summer months. Grab some popcorn, perhaps a blanket, and sit back to watch a classic.

Enjoy a rooftop cocktail 
Take in the city’s impressive skyline while sipping on a classic cocktail. You’ll hopefully catch an impressive sunset at the same time.

Dine out
London really comes alive at night. Watch the world go by with an al fresco dinner, the perfect way to people-watch.
