I noticed a travel agent in Northallerton offering two or three night breaks in London, including train travel and hotel, for less than the cost of standard train tickets... Might be worth a quick check?
we go to london often and always look for the cheapest travelodge/premier inn place we can find. there is always one of them with a deal on so worth looking around. no point paying more when all you do is sleep there. second others about family railcard ours pays for itself after one journey.
I buy my tickets through the trainline and go through quidco and have a family railcard.
We stayed in the Premier Inn at Tower Bridge which was fab. It wasn't far from Tower of London and I felt very safe. We would jump on the tube from Tower Hill to where we wanted to start and go from there. Kids had a ball. I booked breakfast in advance but there was plenty places to eat or we had Papa Johns across the street and a wetherspoons for a sunday roast.
We worked out for 6 of us for 3 nights it was only £78pp for the whole time we were there and that included 3 breakfasts.
Train tickets released three months before, buy early, reduction for four or more tickets purchased together and reduction if you have a family rail card. Where are you travelling from? Ive just got back (yesterday); and we paid £35retutn each for four adults (and no.railcards) from.Newcastle.
We stayed at a Marriott, but there are tons of Premier Inns and Holiday INns amd Travellodges around too. Id stay near Covent Garden/ Leicester Squarr to be in the thick.of it.
I am lookinf for a 3 night break to london to see allthe usual sights - eye, tower, big ben , palace etc... so would like to be somewhere central so we dont have to travel a lot on the tube and also somewhere affordable - im thinking premier in or a serviced apartment if i could get one for the same price as a premier inn. Now its 16 yrs since i last went to london so where should i stay premier inn wise? I dont want to get murdered in my bed or have the kids stolen - usual parental worries.... Please help. Its going to cost in region of £300 for train so i nee to get this right. . Also who best to book train through and when if say booking for feb half term?
