Ideas for the August Bank Holiday 2020

Ideas for the August Bank Holiday 2020

2020 has been a strange year to say the least! With most of London in lockdown for 3 months or more, a 2 week summer holiday is a distant dream. Why not head to London for a 48-hour wander or 72-hour tour? 

When you get to London, the first thing we’d do is drop off your luggage and find some brunch! All Crown Group hotels will happily store your luggage for the morning whilst you head off and enjoy the sites. We pride ourselves on location and all of our hotels are near major transport hubs and so are fortunate enough to have many restaurants and cafes within walking distance. If you’re at our London Bloomsbury or Gower Street properties, why not head to Store Street or Goodge street for a good coffee and pretty much any cuisine you could want. 

Once you’re energised and ready for the day, London has many walks, cycles and paths for you to explore while the weather remains sunny. With Regent’s Park just up the road from our Mabledon Court Hotel (London Kings Cross St Pancras) or Hyde Park just a short journey away, you really are spoilt for choice. If you’re exploring Regent’s Park you might also want to explore the canals heading to Little Venice or head up to Primrose Hill for some spectacular views across London. 

In the evenings, the City of London lights up and, if you are staying at our Great St Helen Hotel (London Liverpool Street), why not have dinner at the Shard or Sky Gardens to get some exceptional views of the London skyline.

If the weather turns (as it often does in the UK!), many of London’s museums and indoor attractions have reopened.

If you want to stay near Kings Cross or Bloomsbury, the British Museum and the National Gallery and only short walks away. Both are open but booking is essential to ensure adequate distancing.

If you’re heading to Liverpool Street, why not explore the Museum of London or one of the Tate Galleries – again booking is essential but we are grateful they are keeping us safe!


After a long day exploring the city, head to a Crown Hotel to put your feet up. With breakfast included the following morning at most of our hotels (London Liverpool Street is not serving breakfast currently), you’ll get a headstart on tomorrow too. With 15% off bookings at the moment (enter code Travel2020 at checkout), you really can’t go wrong!
