The weather might still be chilly and Christmas might be over, but that doesn’t stop London from being as buzzing and active a city as it ever is this January. Whatever it is you’re into, there’s sure to be a London attraction to suit your mood. Here’s our list of the top ones to visit before the end of the month…
The London Eye
This iconic London mainstay was installed to mark the new millennium, and it’s been dazzling visitors from all around the world ever since. Don’t be put-off by the Ferris-wheel style rotation – given the leisurely pace and 32 spacious pods, this is a great way to see the city from different angles, and not to be missed when staying at Park Grand London Paddington. With a duration of 30 minutes per trip, you’ll be able to cross off seeing some of the city’s major landmarks and continue on with some of the city’s other top attractions.
One of the UK’s most spectacular royal palaces, Kensington Palace is today home to some of the younger royals including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Whether you want to take a trip through the life of Queen Victoria with the Victoria Revealed exhibition or browse through the iconic fashion history of Princess Diana, Kensington Palace seamlessly melds the public image and private lives of the royal family to create a truly remarkable London attraction within reach of hotels in Paddington London.
Over 16,000 animals reside in one of the country’s oldest zoos, from majestic tigers to striking giraffes and the fine penguin habitat on site. First opened in 1847, the zoo has turned its attentions recently to breeding endangered lions. Each ticket sold goes towards helping secure a bright future for endangered species through the zoo’s conservation efforts. A great way to combine a vibrant London day out for all ages with truly doing good.
Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour
One of the city’s best bus tours, the Hop On, Hop Off tour is also a great way to get around. More than 60 stops enable you to plan your day around what you want to do and where you want to go, while a 24-hour ticket includes a free walking tour and river tour as standard so you can explore as much as you like before returning to relax at the Park Grand London Paddington.

There’s a vast array of sea creatures on display here, including a stunning Shark Walk featuring several species of shark swimming just below. There are also a number of amazing displays while guests have a chance to find out more about the great conservation work carried out by the aquarium, enjoying fun, interactive experiences every step of the way.
