A Weekend in London
When you work nine to six all week and it takes you almost an hour to get to work then you tend to end up very tired and stressed by the time the weekend comes. Often the tendency is to do nothing all weekend to get over a very busy week. But doing nothing isn't always the best way to relax and it can add to your stress levels because towards Wednesday or Thursday you begin to wonder whether all of the hard work that you do all week is really worth it.

Instead of doing nothing when it comes to the weekend it's better to plan a weekend away every month or so. Whether it be with your partner, or a trip with your friends it's a good idea to get away and enjoy some of the pleasures of life, and make those busy working weeks all worthwhile. If you're living in the UK then you may ask: where is a good place to get away for a weekend and do the things that I want to do? The answer I would give without hesitation would always be "London".

London is a beautiful city, and there are so many things to do, but many people are put off from going there for a weekend break because it might be too expensive. But London needn't be that expensive. With the help of the internet there are plenty of places that you can get a good deal to go to London, visit the sites and take in some of the capital's entertainment.

Depending on what age you are and what you want to do for fun/leisure there are many different activities for you to enjoy in London. For the more youthful traveller the London clubs are a great scene, to dance the night away, meet new people, and have loads of fun. If, like me, your clubbing days are gone and you're looking for a more relaxed and cultured evening then you may prefer a night at the theatre. Whether you want to watch an opera, or take in a great play, London has the range of shows for your entertainment. There are many top shows to see in London, such as The Lion King, The Phantom of the Opera and Chicago - the choice is so big that you're bound to find the show for you.

If you do want to take in a show during your stay there are websites that offer hotel and theatre ticket packages at discount prices, so that you can pre-book your holiday to combine the hotel and theatre ticket price to get a great deal.

As well as the nightlife there is plenty to see during the day. It's quite fun to visit the streets and stations from the monopoly board to bring back childhood memories of playing the game with your siblings; or you can see the sites - Big Ben is quite an eye opener.

If you haven't been to London I fully recommend you go, and if you've only been there on business then I recommend you take off your suit and see how beautiful London really is.
