A global recession and a weakened pound may not seem like good things but, to holiday makers and businesses outside the UK, they make London a top destination for value. With accommodation and restaurant prices fallen by between a third and a half, London has become one of the world's most affordable cities.
Prices are the only things that have fallen in London because the high standards of service and product have been maintained, leading to even greater value for the consumer.
Lonely Planet was the first to coin the fact that London is now one of the best places in the world for value. Not only falls in London hotels
and restaurant prices have lead to greater value, many London hotels, museums and business venues are offering amazing deals and packages to encourage sales. All this has lead to London being in even more demand as a global destination. Businesses can not only benefit from lower conference and exhibition rates, delegates can also take advantage of the great London restaurants
and London theatre deals
in their down-time.
The most important point for London now is to communicate this incredible value and affordability to the global community. It was already widely accepted that London presents stunningly high standards to the consumer at reasonable prices. Now those prices have been slashed! Actually, many quality London attractions
, such as 17 major London museums and galleries
, cost nothing at all.
London hotel rates have dropped through the floor recently with London hotel guests realising that they can now get a lot more for their money. Many London hotel guests are able to stay in high-quality, spacious Executive rooms for the same price as they would have paid for small Standard rooms two years ago. Despite the recession, the London hotel market has continued to flourish with many new hotels popping up around the capital. Notably, Hotel Indigo London-Paddington
opened at the beginning of the year and has gone from strength to strength, defying all expectations and wowing guests with its bold contemporary design. Mercure London Paddington Hotel
has put out some very attractive corporate delegate rates. Guests can utilise chic meeting facilities, next door to Paddington Underground station, from as little as £39.
With the festive Christmas period coming up, there has never been a better time to stay in a London hotel, take advantage of the great shopping deals and enjoy a West End play. Our luxury central London hotels are extremely well-connected to London's transport network and will make your journeys over the capital quick and easy.
