London is filled with fantastic tech-based venues, perfect for finding respite and relaxation during your visit to the city. No matter the time of year, these six awesome places will appeal to your inner techie…
Not only is the Science Museum one of London’s most popular venues, but it’s also a haven for lovers of new technology. The exhibits here have a particularly immersive edge, which allows you to explore some of the major innovations which have helped shape the modern world in new and exciting ways. The museum is popular with all ages, offering a great day out for families who want to keep the kids entertained during a stay at our 5 Star hotels in London.
It’s the wonder of great engineering which keeps this giant Ferris wheel turning year after year, and if you want to see the city from a unique vantage point, then there’s no better way than by taking a spin in one of the high-tech pods. You can rent them out for events or upscale the experience with a variety of packages aimed at offering everything from champagne to birthday celebrations, making this a fantastic addition to add extra lustre to your hotel birthday package at the Montcalm.
Interested in astronomy? Then head to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, a surprisingly relaxing place where you can discover more about the wonders of the astronomical world and the great minds who helped make fascinating discoveries. There’s information about the astronomers themselves as well as their work past and present, so you’re sure to leave inspired!

The Home of Morse Code
If you fancy visiting the home of a techie pioneer, then head to 141 Cleveland Street in Fitzrovia, where you will see a plaque on the wall dedicated to Samuel Finley Breese Morse, creator of Morse code. As the co-inventor and namesake of this remarkable innovation, Morse lived here from 1812-1815.
The BT Tower
Built in the 1960s, this enormous communications tower was first commissioned by the Post Office to help carry communications traffic. Until 1980, it was the tallest building in the entire city, and it has been spotted in many films and TV dramas set in London as a mainstay of the famous skyline. Standing at 581 ft tall, it makes great fodder for trying your hand at some amateur photography.
