The Langham

The Langham London is Europe’s first Grand Hotel. It opened in 1865 and they’ve maintained their impeccable standards for over 150 years. Now, it’s one of the most coveted hotels in the capital, with a prime location on Regent Street and a classic decor. We’re giving away a two-night stay, which will give you plenty of time to enjoy their new spa, including the 16-metre pool.

See sharks, stingrays and clownfish up close


The kids will absolutely love this! You’ll bag a family pass to the SEA LIFE London Aquarium, one of the most exciting attractions in the capital. You can walk through their underwater tunnel while sharks swim all around you, peer into tanks full of stingrays and stroke a starfish in their rockpools. Don’t miss Nemo’s Coral Reef, where you’ll meet the fish that inspired the film.
