Planning your trip to London. Tourist Tips.

Planning your trip to London
There’s one hell of a lot to do in London some basic planning will avoid unnecessary trapsing around on foot or irritating waiting for public transport. It’s best to plan a day out so as to maximise the number of things you can see – and to go for variety. Below are a few mornings, afternoons and whole days out we’ve arranged for visitors – time permitting, we can offer advice by Email (tourist@sightseeingtours.co.uk)  if there’s anything you particularly want to see. Our Walks and itineraries link points of interest – see the separate page.

Planning by length of stay – if you’re only in London for a day, a weekend or a week use our SHORT STAY pages where we show you how to cram as much into your days as possible.

Weather – likely to make or break your visit. Although there are plenty of things to do in London in the rain, a week of low slate-grey skies and constant rain is not condusive to having a good time. The best season to come weatherwise is Late Summer or Autumn – latterly we’ve been having Indian Summers from mid-September to the end of October with clear blue skies and 20 degree temperatures. Eventually the weather breaks as the storm fronts move in off the Atlantic, then clears up for Christmas. February – April can be dire, and the heights of summer are very unpredictable. Consult the Meterological office here for facts and figures but beware predictions – they are so often wrong.
When it’s raining there are plenty of museums and galleries to visit – and the tube system is generally very good outside of rush hour. What you’ll miss out on is strolling through London and seeing the many unique pleasures by the wayside. Click here to see when to visit London.

Hotel Location Best to be near a tube station, buses can be slow and unreliable, and taxis expensive. The yellow circle line on the tube map marks the division between central and not-so-central London. Outside of that Zone your transport bill will rise – and once you’re in LT zone three, considerably. The best restaurants are in Islington, Soho/Chinatown and the south west of London which is where the life is. The City is a dead zone evenings and weekends. Hotel accommodation click here.

Rest of Britain

Virtually everyone flies into London, even if their reason to visit lies elsewhere. Booking a train trip from London to see the rest of the UK is best done AT LEAST TWO DAYS IN ADVANCE – very cheap fares are available, especially on Virgin Trains – as little as £9 return to Chester 2 weeks or more in advance.

Outside of London the major places of interest (apart from those listed on our trips page) would be the Cotswolds (for which you need a car), North Wales: Snowdonia and the Castles (ditto), Oxford, Cambridge, Chester, York and Bath (easily accessible by train), and we’d recommend the North of Norfolk and the Yorkshire Dales (car needed). In Scotland, Edinburgh is the only city attraction – flights are very cheap on Easyjet (much cheaper than rail travel) if you book in advance. For scenery visit the Fort William area, but beware the midges in summer, and the weather in winter. Cornwall and the Devon coast are beautiful, but a long way from anywhere and quite tourist – you can fly there using the cheap internet airlines – cheap if you book enough in advance. No city except London merits more than one day.

So many tourist boards will bombard you with information trying to sell themselves – caveat emptor is the rule. Britain earns millions of pounds from tourists, make sure you get good independent advice on places outside of London before you even think of visiting them . Many tourist boards have been caught lying and taken to court, and one Chief Tourist Officer of a large northern city resigned because he could no longer go on lying – his city really wasn’t worth visiting despite the tourist propaganda his department put out One seaside resort has been prosecuted for doctoring photos and the 2007/8 season ads for Scotland featured snow footage that was decades old and unlikely to match the reality, due to global warming.

We wouldn’t recommend Manchester (except the Lowry), Liverpool (except for the art galleries – see our art page) despite it being city of Culture, Birmingham or anywhere in the Midlands (except for Chatworth House near Chesterfield), The Lake District ( very beautiful but too crowded unless you’re going hill walking which is excellent – if you are stay at the Gilpin Lodge and do some of the set walks, but allow two/three days minimum.), Leeds, Bradford, Hull, Newcastle (unless you like drunkenness) South Wales except the Black country or the Gower Penninsula, Blackpool – or any seaside resort except Brighton, Portsmouth, The Isle of Wight (expensive ferry) Aberdeen, Inverness (the Lochs excepted), Lancaster or Sunderland (except Hadrian’s Wall). Some of these places are grim by any standards.
If you’re a party animal only, then Manchester has a good club scene and Newcastle is good for overindulgence in alcohol and loose women, as well as streetfights – it’s where the Rolling Stones’ ‘Streetfighting Man’ comes from… A male friend was beaten up by some Geordie lasses outside a nightclub, so maybe streetfighting women as well.
The Knowhere site is good for info on smaller tourist locations, but is aimed at skateboarders – its judgement on the overall character of a place is often spot-on – though generally they’re not a very helpful bunch .

Discount Theatre Show Tickets in London’s West End

London  is world famous for its ‘West End’ shows, for many people the theatre is the main reason for a visit.

Discount LondonThe number of shows in London are many, covering musicals, comedy, plays and classics and are spread across London. The mainstream commercial theatre is centred in the West End around the Covent Garden and Leicester Square area, though top selling shows will also be elsewhere.

The most popular shows are often sold out well in advance, especially at the popular weekend shows.

The top shows, tend to be musicals. The current favourites that everyone wants to see are sold out weeks, sometimes months ahead, especially for popular weekend shows.

Nearly all shows start between 19:30 and 20:00 and a typical show will last between 2 hours 15 minutes and three hours. When you leave the theatre you will typically have an hour before the last Underground train runs.   There is also a good night bus network that will get you to all the main hotel districts if you want to eat or drink afterwards or visit a nightclub.

If you get a cab make sure its a proper licensed cab, only London’s famous black cabs are allowed to solicit for business.   Purchasing West End Theatre Tickets

When you purchase a theatre ticket, normally the best way to purchase if you can is direct in person from the theatre, for most people this is impractical.

It is not generally possible to purchase tickets direct online from the theatre, there are no e-tickets. Tickets are sold through agents of one kind or another. You can either collect the tickets or have them mailed to you.

When you purchase a theatre ticket you should be made aware of the face value, this is the normal price of the ticket if you bought direct at the theatre. Agents will normally charge you more than the face value, this is their commission and/or mailing fee. If there is an offer you will pay less than the face value of the ticket.

Discount West End Theatre Tickets   Around Leicester Square in the heart of the theatre district are a number of kiosks selling ‘last minute’ discounted tickets with unsold seats for that evening.

The official half price discount office should be your first port of call. It is on the south side of Leicester Square itself, (pictured right) and is hard to miss.

There are other kiosks like that pictured below, all around Leicester Square.

Don’t expect to pick up tickets for the popular shows here they are normally sold out well in advance.

Also it may be that only the expensive seats for a show may be made available discounted – there may be cheaper stall seats available from the theatre.

If there is a particular show you want to see then book in advance, don’t gamble on the off chance that you’ll pick up something cheap on the day. As said before the very popular shows are sold out well in advance.   If you want to check out the entire entertainment scene in London, covering comedy clubs, film, concerts and ballet as well as mainstream musicals then pick up a copy of Time Out in London. a weekly London entertainment magazine.

A good on-line source of discounted theatre tickets is Lastminute.com, Lastminute.com as well as doing discounted tickets also do deals combining theatre with things like restaurant meals near the theatre.

A great way to both save money and get hold of tickets otherwise not available is to purchase through a consolidator. These agents buy up blocks of seats from the theatres well in advance and bundle them with discounted hotels.

The is a large choice of hotels from the most frugal to 5 star luxury.

Needless to say we have negotiated the best online prices:

We are delighted to include this new experience for 2013.  Introducing The View from The Shard London’s newest and most eagerly awaiting attraction opening to the public on 1st February 2013.

The Shard, LondonThe View from The Shard
The View is a premium visitor experience situated at the top of The Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe on floors 68, 69 and 72. It is almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London.

The Shard is London’s newest landmark, designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano. At a height of 1,016ft (310m) The Shard redefines London’s skyline and will be a dynamic symbol of the city, recognisable throughout the world.
The name ‘Shard’ comes from its sculpted design, which consists of glass facets that incline inwards but do not meet at the top, but instead open to the sky to allow the building to breathe naturally.

The View from The Shard will provide an unparalleled encounter with The Shard and the opportunity to experience London like never before, with spectacular 64km (40 mile), 360 degree views of the city, 244m (800ft) above the capital. Guests will be taken on a multi-sensory journey from street level, drawn into the diverse tapestry of London in new and unexpected ways, resulting in a remarkable experience of one of the greatest cities on earth.

The Experience 
Visitors will reach The View from The Shard through high-speed ‘kaleidoscopic’ lifts, which build anticipation, excitement and exhilaration.
Guests will arrive at Level 68 before ascending to The View on Level 69, a triple-height, light-filled main level where the view is revealed and London past, present and future is laid out before them and brought to life in multimedia displays and installations.

On Level 72, the highest public level of The Shard, guests have the most extreme experience exposed to the elements and sounds of the city beneath, as well as the chance to look up to the shards of glass that form the top of the sculptural building as they disappear upwards further into the sky.
Guests exit via a small boutique on Level 68 prior to descending in the lifts back through reception where they will have an opportunity to browse the main boutique as well as purchase a souvenir photograph.

The Shard will be complete externally in July 2012 and tickets for The View from The Shard go on sale from July 2012. The attraction is anticipated to attract 1 million visits a year.

The View will be open from 9.00 am to 10.00 pm to enable guests to enjoy the experience by day and night.

Highlights:
