May 30, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Introduced in 1962, the City of London Festival has a prolific track record for hosting one of London's most spectacular events.

The financial district known as the City is full of spectacular buildings and creative architecture, and for nearly 50 years now they have highlighted London's thriving cultural scene during the summer months.

2011 is set to be no different, with a packed programme of music, walks, film and performing arts running from June 26th to August 12th.

Highlights include the London Symphony Orchestra at St Paul's Cathedral (June 28th), enlightening tours of the historic Bank of England (July 2nd and 9th) and the Royal New Zealand Ballet at The Barbican (July 14th-16th).

There are plenty more events to whet the appetite of those with an interest in the arts, and for those wishing to enjoy a longer stay there is plenty of high quality accommodation nearby, with Hotels-London Ltd offering plenty of Docklands hotels, such as Crowne Plaza Docklands, that allow for easy access to all the venues.
