Hit the town in Brixton

Just south of central London over the River Thames, Lambeth is not only well-connected to the capital's world-famous sites, but gives adventurous visitors easy access to the buzzy melting pot of Brixton. Visit Pop for a host of independent retailers, restaurants and street-food stalls before sampling local London nightlife at Hootananny or the Prince of Wales.

Get a culture fix at the Southbank Centre

Europe's largest centre for the arts sits on the south bank of the River Thames in central London. Royal Festival Hall is home to renowned theatrical and musical performances, whilst the Hayward Gallery hosts internationally important art exhibitions. If you're on a shoestring, don't worry - the Southbank Centre hosts hundreds of free events throughout the year, including the much-loved Summer and Winter Festivals.

Scarily good fun at London Dungeon

Beneath the watchful London Eye in central London, the London Dungeon awaits fearless visitors to its spooky underground musuem of macabre history. Kids will love the live actors, special effects and ghoulish rides through the grisliest episodes from London's past, including the Black Death and the Gunpowder Plot. To make it a royal day out, take the short stroll over Westminster Bridge, taking in Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and - if you're lucky - the changing of the guards at Horse Guards Parade. Planning a trip to Lambeth? Travelodge London Vauxhall hotel is just minutes away and a short walk from picturesque Pimlico. Further north, Travelodge London Central Waterloo Hotel is right in the city centre.
