News of the royal pregnancy and calls to celebrate New Year's Eve in Style see people looking for serviced apartments in London.
The countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun but if you are more of a party animal your thoughts may be turning to New Year's Eve.
Perhaps the most popular city for UK revellers is London. This year there will be a free firework display on the South Bank near
The London Eye, thanks to the Mayor Boris Johnson.
The images of Big Ben chiming midnight and party goers dancing in the fountains of Trafalgar Square have become iconic and many people now travel to the capital city to stay in serviced apartments.
According to a spokesman for Serviced City Apartments , they are very busy at this time of year with people particularly interested in city breaks.
Said the spokesman: "Our serviced apartments in London are particularly popular during the festive season".
The advantages of a serviced apartment do not come at a higher cost - apartments can actually be less expensive than hotels, particularly when you consider that you have 50% more space in the vast majority of apartments.
It has never been a better time to travel to London. What a year London will bring to a close too. The city has hosted the London Olympics and Paralympic Games, with many hailing it a huge success. It also showcased a number of events and concerts for The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The pyrotechnics will also bring in an exciting 2013 with news that a royal baby will be born to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
As the world awaits the patter of tiny feet there will be plenty of other opportunities to celebrate too.
