After hours

The UK's capital city offers visitors an endless supply of things to see, activities to try, museums to visit, west-end shows to watch and restaurants to sample.

Make a weekend of it and visit a selection of London's tourist hotspots such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Madame Tussauds or the world-class sporting facilities of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Visit London's Royal Docks
Before and after your open water swim why not explore the dockside area where there are a number of things to see and do for all the family.  Built in the 19th century, London's Royal Docks are a shining example of Victorian engineering, and have been developed by the Royal Docks Management Authority Limited (RoDMA) to become a popular place to live, work and visit.
