6 essential Apps for a weekend in London

Are you planning a weekend in London? Or maybe a trip to the British capital for holidays, for Christmas or New Year? Then prepare your smartphone, because there are Apps that you can not miss and that will be really useful for your trip.

Visit London

The official and reference App to know everything happens in London around you. Museums, exhibitions, restaurants, theatres, must see, offers, free attractions.
Visit London is perfect for planning your weekend in London in advance, just search for your interests and save them. Then check it quietly during your flight and view it on the map.
Easy and very useful.

Bookatable

London offers a wide choice of restaurants: so wide that sometimes choosing is not easy! With Bookatable you can study the menus, display prices and offers, and of course you can book. Also useful on the road to find where you can eat around you thanks to geolocation. That’s how we found the beautiful restaurant in our last weekend in London!

Transport

If you want to move with public transport network, download Citymapper App and you will have all the infos and links for metro and buses with updated information per minute and the various route options at your fingertips. You’ll also find useful services such as line breaks, offline maps, prices, taxi fares, and even calories burned!

If you decide to use mainly public transport, I recommend you also download the TfL Oyster App to recharge your Oyster Card (just buy it once and then, every time you go to London, recharge it: it’s very convenient!) whenever you need. With this App you can buy also travel-card and check your card’s balance. You can also view your travel history and enable notifications when your balance falls below £10.

Currency

Keep your finances under control! For your shopping (and to understand how much you’re spending really) a currency changer is really useful. With Valuta App  you no longer have to keep the calculator in your hand!

Shopping at Regent Street? Use this App!

Regent Street is one of the shopping streets of London, where you will surely find yourself passing by. The App helps you to personalize your shopping experience basing on your interests. You will also receive special invitations from shops like Liberty and Apple Store, as well as information on events and promotions.
