Booking London hostels could ensure that any trip to the city enables quick and cost-effective accommodation - and close proximity to all of the planned events.
Jacqueline French is a spokesperson for Visit London and said free museums, as well as numerous parks and open spaces are some of the wonderful - and cheap - ways to see what it has to offer.
The opening of Buckingham Palace and the Notting Hill Carnival were also recommended, as was London Pride and the Hampton Court Flower Show.
Culture vultures can check out the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, while the Big Dance and Open Weekend could be another great addition to the itinerary.
"Greenwich, Harrow and Richmond - all a short distance from central London - offer visitors a different take on London, each with their own character and attractions, they offer visitors a great day out," Ms French added.
The capital was recently said to be the top city tourism destination in Europe.
In 2009, some 45 million nights were spent there by visitors in London hostels and other types of accommodation.
The statistics - produced by European Cities Marketing - put Paris in second place, with 33.9 million. Berlin and Rome were third and fourth respectively, followed by Madrid, Barcelona and Prague.
