This year is set to see a number of great events happening close to Park Grand London Paddington so visitors will be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what to do.
As Park Grand London Paddington is in the centre of the capital, it is really easy for visitors to travel to some of the capital’s top attractions.
Fans of crime novels should be considering heading to the British Library before March 5th 2017. A special event called Murder at the Manor Pop-up Shop is aimed at all those amateur detectives who think they can do a better job than the real police.
The story begins with a character called Murdo Magenta being found dead in his home in 1938. Beside him is a box of chocolates – and finding who sent them could be key to solving the mystery of who killed him. It really is a great idea and is the perfect way to have some fun while also learning about history.
Royal Albert Hall
Grand London Paddington is close to the world-famous Royal Albert Hall, so guests are urged to make sure they make time to go to visit this spectacular venue.
Until the end of the February, the Royal Albert Hall is hosting another amazing performance from the Cirque Du Soleil. Amaluna tells the story of a castaway and features the usual awesome acrobatics and dance of previous Cirque Du Soleil. Anyone hoping to see the performance are advised to get tickets quickly as they are selling out very fast.
Kensington Palace is close to Park Grand London Paddington and is well worth a visit anytime of the year. It has plenty of events happening throughout the 12 months and one of the main highlights for 2017 is a show all about Princess Diana and her impact on the fashion world.
Diana: Her Fashion Story opens on February 24th 2017 and looks at all the various iconic outfits she wore during her lifetime. One of the highlights is a velvet gown, which was worn by Diana at the White House when she danced with John Travolta.
Entry is included in a palace admission ticket and can be booked online.
Natural History Museum
One of the most popular museums in the capital is the Natural History Museum. One of the highlights of the 2017 calendar is expected to be the Behind-the-Scenes Tour: The Spirit Collection, which runs until March 31st 2017.
Members of the public will be able to get a tour of exhibits that are not usually on display, including many from the collection of Charles Darwin, including an amazing 8.62-metre-long giant squid.
As well as the Natural History Museum, there is the Science Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum nearby.
