Here’s a list of the places that I think you should visit if you have to spend a night or two at a Heathrow airport hotel.

The Tower of London

Probably one of the most well know sights you will see in the capital city. The Tower of London is a mere 19 miles away from the airport, this makes it easy for you to visit. Here you will be able to wander around the historic building, you see the crown jewels, the famous prisons and listen to the tales about ghosts.

The free museums

If you don’t want to spend any cash that you had set aside for your holiday then you should definitely check out the museums and galleries in London. There are a number of places that do not ask for any entry fee at all, when you take into account that these places are some of the best in the world it means you have to visit! The natural history museum, the Tate Modern and the British museum are just some of the great place where you won’t have to get your wallet out to enter.

Watch a show

If you love theatre then the West End is where you need to be. What better way to spend the last evening before your flight than to watch one of the long running shows in the theatre. The West End has, for a long time, attracted some of the best acting talent in the word. It continues to offer great new shows and also features some of the most long running shows in the world. Some of the most popular are The Phantom Of The Opera, Les Miserables and The Lion King.
