Explore our top ten list of London staycation ideas and plan your stay at The Arch London.

1. Wallace Collection

Housed in Hertford House, this gorgeous collection of art, furniture and ceramics spans the centuries. After a lazy breakfast at The Arch London, wander just 8 mins through Marylebone for the perfect morning of London staycation culture. You’ll find The Wallace Collection on Manchester Square, a beautiful example of Georgian architecture.

2. Hyde Park

Nestled amongst some of London’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, Hyde Park is an expansive green oasis. There are plenty of quiet spots for a relaxing staycation picnic. Our picnic hamper makes for an easy option to collect before you head out for the day. Hampers feature custom Summer dishes from Hunter468 and some bubbles to keep you refreshed in the sun.

3. Selfridges

An emporium of the world’s finest and most fabulous things, this legendary department store even has its own TV show spin-off. Whether you’re looking for high fashion, unique London souvenirs or foodie delights, Selfridges is bound to have what you need. The department store is just a short walk down Oxford Street from the hotel.

4. Royal Afternoon Tea at The Arch London

We couldn’t complete a London staycation list without a nod to our celebrated Royal Afternoon Tea at Hunter468. With treats like coronation chicken sandwiches, smoked salmon blinis and Battenberg cake, it makes for the perfect London staycation afternoon at the hotel.

5. Serpentine Galleries

Diana Princess of Wales was once the patron of the Serpentine and Serpentine Slacker Galleries. These modern art meccas offer a slice of calm away from the West End neighbourhoods. You’ll find them just a short walk over Hyde Park from the hotel.

6. Regents Park and London Zoo

What’s better than a world class, ecologically responsible zoo? One nestled in a world class royal park! London Zoo features animal species from all over the world, plus daily feedings, activities for the kids and even great dining options on site. A walk-through Regents Park’s formal gardens makes for the start of a great London staycation day.

7. Sherlock Holmes Museum

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the world’s most famous detective lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904. This fabled address, now a delightful little museum, is dressed as it would’ve been in Victorian times and features life-size waxworks of Holmes’ epic adventures. One to entertain kids and parents alike!

8. Crawford Street shops and cafes

Crawford Street offers a glimpse into modern Marylebone life – filled with quaint shops, townhouses and pubs. There’s even a church designed by Robert Smirke, famous for creating the imposing facade of the British Museum. Our favourite spots are TotallySwedish for imported Swedish treats and The Beehive Pub for a midday pint.

9. Red Bike Tours

Give those feet a rest and join one of the rightfully popular Red Bike Tours. Offering both group and private tours of the best central London has to offer, the meeting spot is just a few steps away from The Arch London at Marble Arch.

10. Dinner and cocktails at Hunter 486

Where better to dine and relax after a long day than your very own London staycation home. With an open plan kitchen and beautiful Georgian windows, the menu features modern British cuisine including Dressed Dorset Crab with Avocado and Pink Grapefruit and 28 day aged Flat Iron steak. There’s also a carefully selected wine list and cocktail menu.
