Hotels Near Hyde Park: a West End Spring Retreat
Springtime in London is a beautiful time of year. The parks are full to bursting with emerging plants and flowers and brightly coloured crocus and tulips are everywhere. Nature is emerging from under the winter duvet and it is there for all to see and enjoy.
All around there is a sense of awakening with birds singing and wildlife putting on its best show. This is the time to visit and bring the children to soak up some entertainment. So when considering family trips and accommodation London and hotels near Hyde Park are a superb option.
At the end of February Somerset House is host to London Fashion Weekend where the emphasis is strictly on all things cool! There are over a hundred national and international brands showing off their wares, tempting you to spend, as well as live cat-walk shows to stimulate the fashion senses.
In addition to the main show, there are beauty treatments on offer, hairdressers seeking to change your style and a huge choice of eateries where you can enjoy some excellent food whilst listening to top DJs playing the tunes.
For business meeting rooms London offers endless choice if you plan to mix work and leisure. Similarly, the hotels near Hyde Park enjoy excellent transport links that can shrink the size of the city, ensuring that getting about is simplicity itself.
A day out at Kew Gardens is fabulous at any time, but especially so in the spring. There are bluebells, daffodils and a vast, colourful carpet of millions of crocuses to stir the senses. The children will be able to follow nature trails and will even have the opportunity of crawling through a huge badger sett!
The huge glasshouses can be a welcome refuge in a shower and will open up a whole new world of exotic plants and trees.
If you enjoy a leisurely stroll through one of the Royal Parks you may wish to stay in any one of the hotels near Hyde Park. You will be amazed at the natural beauty there right in the centre of London.
You can even hire a horse and ride through the park, enjoy a lunchtime concert or perhaps eat in either of the restaurants situated by the lake. Hyde Park is there to be enjoyed by all.
