A little bit of planning goes a long way, so start by reserving an impeccable central London accommodation at The Piccadilly London West End Hotel and read on to get a taste of the capital’s history and culture exploring five of the most iconic landmarks near your stay! 

The Tower of London 

The iconic Tower of London has kept a watch over the capital since William the Conqueror ordered its construction in the 1070s. While the fortress has served as a palace for Kings, Queens and aristocrats over the centuries, some others like Anne Boleyn have spent their final days locked up here before execution. Explore the tower’s countless rooms and one-of-a-kind exhibitions, featuring displays of iconic relics collected over centuries.  

Top Tip: For an unforgettable experience, look out for the best deals and discounts on hotels in West End London near the Tower of London and save some time for the world-renowned Crown Jewels exhibition at the palace.  

St. Paul’s Cathedral 

London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral is an architectural wonder and a captivating religious icon that has been on site since at least the fifth century. Located minutes away from your luxurious Piccadilly London Hotel, the cathedral you’ll see today is a work of the celebrated architect Sir Christopher Wren and is as beautiful on the outside as the inside. Take the time to admire the decorative ceilings, the stunning view of the cathedral’s length from the nave (one of the best spots for photo opportunities) and the winding staircases.  

Top Tip: Secure a priced ticket in advance to explore all the accessible galleries, exhibitions and viewing platforms or take an expert-led guided tour of the cathedral for the best experience.   

The London Eye 

The London Eye was originally constructed to celebrate the turn of the millennium and soon became the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world. An unmissable addition to your London itinerary, the London Eye remains an iconic part of the London skyline, visited by millions of people each year. Featuring 32 sealed pods, a full rotation on the giant Ferris wheel takes about 30 minutes and offers some of the best views of the city from the top.  

Pro Tip: The London Eye is one of the most paid-for attractions in the UK and is loved by locals and travellers alike. Book your tickets in advance to avoid the long queues and plan your visit during the sunset for some unforgettable city views.  

The Shard 

The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe. For one of the best views of the city, ascend to floors 68, 69, and 72 for panoramic views for up to 40 miles as part of The View from The Shard.
