The Park Grand Guide To Stress-Free Travel


It’s no secret that travelling can be stressful. There’s nothing worse than having to go through hours of waiting and frustration before arriving at your destination. A trip to London can be particularly difficult if you’ve never been before or you’re travelling with kids this time around but don’t fret, we’re here to help.

Here at the Park Grand London, we want to make sure everyone has an amazing experience in London by experiencing everything the city has to offer. We know how disheartening it can be to start a holiday off on the wrong foot so we’ve put together this handy guide with tips and tricks on how to improve your travel experience and reduce the amount of stress on your journey to London.

Time management

Even when you think you’re on schedule something can come out of nowhere and knock you back an hour. It’s always a good idea to account for the worst case scenario by adding extra time to your schedule. If you need to catch a train, plan to be there an hour earlier and similarly if you hope to catch a plane. Plan your journey well in advance and you should arrive in perfect time to check into your room at our Paddington Hotels London.


If you’re travelling to London from abroad it’s important that you have all the necessary documents, such as passports and boarding passes, organised and collected in advance. There’s nothing worse than getting the airport only to realise you’ve packed your documents at the bottom of your bag or worse, you forget them all together. In order to save time and make your airport experience run more smoothly be sure to have all your documents together in one safe and easily accessible place.



Unfortunately not everyone out there will be as honest as you and may try to steal something of yours. Airports and train stations in London can be very busy, which can make it easy for thieves to take what doesn’t belong to them. It’s a good idea to invest in locks for your suitcases and bags so you don’t have to worry about losing anything important. The last thing we want is for you to arrive at the Park Grand London only to find something has been taken.
