25 Sep How to make the most of your stay in London
Now that you know what to choose between FGProperties apartments and a hotel room, you’re all set and ready to travel. However, you still don’t know how to organize yourself to enjoy your trip in the best way possible. Don’t worry, we’re here for you to show you the best way to make the most of your stay in London!
We all know that friend who never plans anything, even when going on vacation. Some people like to live this way but it’s definitely better to plan your holidays before hopping on the plane or the train. Some might ask us why? Well.. mainly because it will save you some time to know where you’re going. Plus, for some exhibitions and museums, you’ll have to book online in advance so if you plan to visit London and not just “chill” at home, plan ahead!
#2 But..don’t plan everything
We know, we’ve just told you to plan your trip to London. However, one thing’s for sure, you cannot plan EVERYTHING, hour by hour unless you are planning maniac. It’s always good to have empty time slots in your planning where you have nothing planned, in order to be able to wander in the city or visit something you haven’t planned to visit. Conclusion ? Plan and plan to no plan. Yes, it makes sense.
#3 Arrive Early, Stay Late
The early bird gets the worm, right? Well, it also applies when you travel. The earlier you arrive, the more time you have to spend on your activities. With FGProperties, you can store your luggage all day long (for free!) in our Front Desk. This will give you the time in the morning to visit some museums such as the Natural History Museum, Science Museum or Victoria and Albert Museum located 2 stations away from our Front Desk!
#4 Don’t hesitate to contact the host for tips (ask and shall receive)
We, at FG Properties, give priority to communication which is key for having happy guests. If you have any questions concerning your stay, you should definitely ask your host. You can’t find the hairdryer? Send him a message to their inbox and it should be all good. Most of the time, hosts will give you a guidebook presenting the best restaurants of the neighbourhood but if it’s not the case, you can kindly ask them to give you advice. It’s a win-win situation.
#5 Pack the essentials
3pm, you’ve finally checked into the flat. Time to open your suitcase. Oops, you forgot your toilet kit! Those kind of accidents always happen. If it’s not your toilet kit, it’s your charger or your towel. This means extra time spent in local shops to buy replacement items and again, you lose some time that you could spend enjoying your stay. To avoid making such mistakes, make a checklist when packing your luggage. It will make you save your worries and some precious time!
#6 Stay positive
Staying positive is the best way to make the most of your stay in London! Each cloud has its silver lining so even though it’s raining outside, or it might be freezing cold and you forgot your scarf at home, stay positive and cherish every moment when you are traveling to bring back home great memories!
