To start with, there is, of course, the ArcelorMittal Orbit Slide. While it can be said that when it was opened to the public, it did not have the good fortune of being a recipient of mass public appeal, the structure, which is the tallest in the entire country happens to be a great place to go to in order to have some thrills.

Regent Street is a great place to visit when a person is paying a visit to London. There can be said to be even more of a reason to do so, apart from the normal attractions, when a person takes into account the fact that there is the Transported by Design Festival which would be taking place. The organiser of the same happens to be Transport for London, which is also known as TfL and is also known to be the organiser of multiple forms of transportation which a visitor to the city is likely to make use of to get from one place to another over the course of a visit to it.

Another hotel worth taking into account is The Metropolis London Hyde park which is a good hotel for a lot more than just its location.

The place known as Ministry of Sound is quite well known in London. While almost all the people who are visitors here happen to be adults, there is a prospect which a fun loving parent is likely to appreciate. There is a rave called Rave a Roo, which is to be held which can be said to be one of the child friendly variety.
