The sheer variety of things to do in London can make it particularly difficult for travellers to pin down a trip without feeling as if they have missed out on something.
Along with the typical landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London, there is a wide variety of unique events lined up in the coming weeks.
London Fashion Weekend is a particularly huge tourism attraction, bringing thousands of models and brand representatives from across the world to the capital from September 22-25th. The event provides a phenomenal insight into the industry and showcases some of the globe’s top designer attire.
SIBLING, J.JS Lee and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi are just some of the labels that will showcase some of their autumn/winter 16 collections. Products are also on sale throughout the weekend, occasionally at cheaper prices.
More than 150 brands will be selling items at the event, including Armania, Alexander White, Rixo and Osman.
As well as this, there is a lot more to appreciate than the clothes, as free insider talks are available from editors and stylists. There are even beauty treatments, manicures and massages on offer.
For those who want to enjoy a truly first-class experience, the LUXE ticket packages should certainly be considered. These include front row seats, access to the VIP lounge and a private till point, allowing you to purchase your bargains quicker than anyone else.
Once London Fashion Weekend comes to a close, you can explore some of the city’s top year-round attractions. If you have the time, perhaps wander around the Victoria and Albert Museum, where there is a designated fashion exhibition.
Plus, there is always the capital’s amazing shopping districts to explore, such as Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road, where visitors can expect some of the biggest stores in the UK.
Should I book a coach or a train?
Travelling to the capital can be extremely stressful if you are using public transport. Delays and cancellations can ruin plans for your trip to the big city.
Even if you pre-book seats on a service, you cannot be guaranteed against possible delays and train prices are continuing to rise. On the other hand, a coach provides a confirmed seat, excellent comfort and reliable Wi-Fi.
When you are on your way to London, you can use the internet service to thoroughly plan your time in the capital. Use the connection to find great attractions, look up London Underground stations and perhaps even book a table for dinner.
Much like train journeys, driving down south can be a stressful experience. Even when travelling at off-peak times, it’s quite common to be caught in traffic. On the other hand, using a coach takes this stress away, allowing you to sit back, relax and focus on your trip.
