5 GREAT WAYS TO SPEND THE BANK HOLIDAY

Life can be hectic and it can often feel like the months of the year are disappearing before your very eyes. Bank Holidays give us the perfect excuse to take some time away with our loved ones and make the most of an extra few days off from the daily grind.

With so much stuff happening year-round, London is a fantastic place to plan a special weekend away.

Activity weekend

You may not think it, but the capital is actually a brilliant destination if you're looking for an activity weekend. There are a variety of options all over the city so you can easily plan the perfect schedule for the Bank Holiday. From paintballing to indoor go-karting and even quad biking, you can find something nearby to suit you whether you're looking for Stag Do plans or a date night with a twist.

Shopping spree

With Harrods in Knightsbridge just a short walk away from our hotel and Bond Street in London's West End, there are plenty of reasons to book a stay in the capital if you're looking for some retail therapy. If you want the best of both worlds, having a hotel in one of the beautiful boroughs of London allows you to have a quiet retreat to rest at the end of your busy day shopping. Staying at the Royal Garden Hotel means you also have the added benefit of Kensington High Street right on your doorstep.

Explore the parks

If you are looking to get a little romance during your stay in London, there is nowhere better than its collection of Royal Parks. Nestled on the edge of Kensington Gardens, our hotel offers many of our guests floor-to-ceiling views of this beautiful green space. This means you don't have to go anywhere at all to take in some of the spectacular Royal Parks in London.

Many of the artisan food stalls will prepare you a picnic basket so you can really make the most of any of the Royal Parks in London.

Pamper weekend

Whether you want to pamper yourself or have some quality time with your closest friends, the variety of spas in London means you'll be spoilt for choice. Places like Akasha Spa and Chuan Spa in Central London can offer you a wide range of treatments, with special packages also available. 

Royal Palaces

If you're yet to discover the historical connections to London, then there's no better place to start than the Royal Palaces. Buckingham Palace is obviously the place to start, as the Queen's official residence, though Kensington Palace and St James' Palace also shouldn't be missed during your visit.
