For months, we’ve dreamt of the day we could escape to London for a Staycation with our loved ones, and now Park Plaza Hotels have made our dreams a reality by partnering up with Merlin Entertainments to offer 2 for 1 tickets to some of London’s top attractions when booking a stay at one of their hotels.
On top of that, Park Plaza are also offering up to 25%* off their best flexible rate, the perfect opportunity to spend the night in a stylish hotel with your family or partner and make the most of what London has to offer. Be quick though, this offer is only available to book by 3rd September 2020 for stays until the end of the year.
To share our excitement with you, we thought we’d give you our suggestion on how to make the most of this fantastic offer!
Start early with a morning stroll
Why not kick-start your day in London by taking a morning stroll around some of your favourite city landmarks. Book a Park Plaza close to the Southbank to access the famous Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and The London Eye all within a short walking distance.
Enjoy your selected Merlin London Attraction
With such an amazing selection of London attractions available to choose from within the 2 for 1 Merlin tickets offer, it can be a tough decision deciding which one to book, so here’s a brief overview of each one to help you make your decision.
Madame Tussauds: For those who dream of taking selfies with their favourite celebrities, Madame Tussauds is definitely for you. There are several sections available within the wax museum including the royal room where you can take a snap with the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge, and a party section where you can walk the runway with your favourite A- listers.
The lastminute.com London Eye: Offering unrivalled views of the city’s skyline, The London Eye is the perfect attraction to visit with family or with your partner for a romantic date and an experience to remember.
SEA LIFE Aquarium: Suitable for the whole family no matter what age, SEA LIFE Aquarium features the UK’s largest jellyfish experience and living coral reef as well as a whole other range of different creative zones.
London Dungeons: Recreating various gory and macabre historical events in a gallows humour style, London Dungeons uses a mixture of live actors, special effects and rides to create the perfect attraction to visit with friends or family.
Shrek’s Adventure: This attraction is suitable for families who all share a love for a green ogre named Shrek. Start with boarding the magical flying bus, on a quest to find Shrek in this uniquely magical attraction and unleash your inner ogre with a pair of green character ears.
All attractions must be booked in advance and are subject to availability at the time of booking.
Picnic in the park
After having all the fun at your chosen attraction, you must be feeling a little peckish. If the weather is on your side, why not visit one of London’s beautiful parks and enjoy a nice picnic in the sun. We’d recommend St James’s Park so you can also catch a glimpse of Buckingham Palace but there are also lots of other lovely parks for you to choose from.
Take a walk around Covent Garden
Once you've enjoyed your picnic, why not head over to Covent Garden to watch the street performers at the piazza, browse through the market stalls and take a walk-through Neal’s Yard to explore the several colourful shops and quaint alleys.
Treat yourself to dinner in the city
A busy day exploring the city calls for a delicious dinner and wine. Browse through the wide selection of tasty restaurants available and then either grab a cab and head back to the hotel for an early night or stay out and enjoy the rest of your evening in London.
The Merlin London 2 for 1 Promotion is valid at selected London hotels including Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, Park Plaza County Hall, Park Plaza Victoria London, Park Plaza Park Royal and Holmes Hotel London.
