Manager recommends

  • As part of your London weekend break, pull in a visit to the National Maritime Museum, the leading maritime museum of the UK. The Royal Observatory, best known as the location of the prime meridia or 'Greenwich Mean Time' is also located here. Any city break to London isn't complete without a ride on the London Eye - catch a river taxi from near the Youth Hostel.
