New London Vacation Guide Helps Keep Your Travel Budget Under Control

Until now, there were only three things London could guarantee a visitor – a hefty credit card bill, a long wait in lines for major attractions, and at least one day of rain. While not much can be done about the weather, new independent website, London Vacation Guide has launched to assist tourists keep their budget under control and make the most of their stay in and around the capital.

London, England (PRWEB) May 16, 2006 — Gareth Owen, the creator of London Vacation Guide (, built the site after listening to the woes of overseas visitors at his bar in London, ”They told me how much they were paying for their accommodation and sightseeing trips and I knew there were much cheaper and better ways to see London if you knew where to find them”

The site includes information, articles, and recommendations written in the style of a helpful friend, or barman, as well as online booking facilities and links to other useful websites. The team of researchers and writers provide insider tips on anything from how to get into sold out theatre shows and members only bars, to booking £20 hotel rooms and where Londoners head for their discount shopping.

It took more than six months to research and compile the information before building the site that Owen says, “is aimed at both first time visitors who want to enjoy the major London tourist attractions, and people who have previously visited and are now looking for experiences away from the crowds.”

Along with general London travel advice; there are specific sections relating to accommodation, entertainment, eating and drinking, sightseeing, shopping, family travel, gay and lesbian attractions, disabled traveller advice, sporting events and outdoor activities. London Vacation Guide also offers a monthly newsletter to keep visitors informed of the latest openings, special offers and travel news updates before they arrive.

There is also a discussion forum so visitors past and present can post their questions or recommendations to help new or returning visitors on their London vacation.

The site is always growing and keeping up to date with present and future activity in London and ofcourse always advising on how to save money at every opportunity.
