How to have a blast on a Father’s Day visit to London

father's day

London is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world and attracts tonnes of visitors throughout the year. But, on some days, the influx of tourists is even greater.

Father’s Day is one occasion when thousands of British citizens from all parts of the country flock to the capital to join international guests in exploring top attractions, restaurants and Bayswater hotels in London.

Of course, this adventure can turn into a logistical nightmare unless you come to town with a good plan. This way, you can avoid the worst crowds and ensure that you spend every minute with your family and friends doing something worth remembering.

If you are planning to visit London for Father’s Day, here is how to get organised:

Step 1 – Find an affordable and well-positioned hotel

It’s absolutely essential to secure your accommodations before you arrive – you certainly don’t want to run around London with your suitcase in tow, looking for an available room!

That’s especially the case if you are traveling on a budget, as London hotels – especially luxury hotels -can get quite expensive during the peak periods. On the other hand, saving money on accommodation means very little if you get a room far away from any attractions, causing you to spend extra on transportation.

Grand Royale London Hyde Park is an especially great option, allowing you quick access to all major tourist spots. But, it’s not just the location that draws visitors in. Grand Royale London Hyde Park is well-equipped with travellers’ favourite amenities, has delicious in-room dining options available and offers a unique and authentic English tea experience.

Step 2 – Dine at great restaurants

After you decide where you are sleeping, you should turn your attention to identifying a special restaurant that the father figure in your life will love.

A Father’s Day dinner with family or dear friends is an event that will be remembered for a long time, so it should take place in a nice atmosphere with great food and top-notch service. London is full of world-class restaurants, many of which are located in and near the Bayswater area.

Top tip: Don’t forget to make a reservation! Especially during holidays, all the best restaurants in London will be very busy. Father’s Day is no exception!

Step 3 – Go sightseeing

Depending on how long you intend to stay in London, you should leave some time to cruise the town and visit some of its most scenic and iconic locations.

If you are only visiting for a couple of days, it may be wise to go on a guided bus tour in a traditional double-decker. But, if you have more time, it might make sense to visit attractions on your own. First-time visitors will be tempted to go to the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, or Wembley Stadium, while those looking for less traditional sites could be drawn to climb to the top of The Shard and enjoy the panoramic view or visit Sea Life London and the Science Museum.

Be careful not to schedule too much for a single day – each of those venues deserves to be explored in detail.
