Regent’s Park Hotel: This Travelzoo deal %uFFFDgets you into the four-star Regent’s Park Hotel, a Melia property (we love this brand). It comes with breakfast, buffet dinner, Olympic souvenir and other goodies for just $233 per night. You have to book ASAP because this ends soon.

British Airways: Check here for deals that get you from the U.S. to London and back again from as low as $802. That one is from New York City, but if you want a closer and cheaper flight from SLC, it’s just $813 round-trip from Los Angeles and $842 from Las Vegas. British Airways has partner flights out of Salt Lake City to the other U.S. cities mentioned above.

Airfare and Six Days for Under $1,000: Gate 1 Travel is offering a deal that includes round-trip flights from NYC to London and four nights accommodation in your choice of hotels for just $949.

Once You Get There: When you do get to London, check out this pass, where you pay one price to be able to see the Tower of London, London Bridge, Windsor Castle, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the London Zoo and also take a Thames River cruise and check out a bunch of other attractions.

Once the Olympics are over, it’s time to turn off the TV and go see this amazing city in person.
