PHUKET, 12 June 2012 - HotelTravel.com believes that father truly does know best, and there is no better way to show him than by splashing out with a special gift on Father's Day this Sunday 17 June.

The Hampton Court Palace Festival kicks off this weekend and will be a very father friendly event. And Dads are the original 'hipsters' and who will always be looking to recapture their youthful glory. So take him to Hampton Court to catch Liza Minnelli, former 80’s duo Soft Cell, Van Morrison, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons or more current acts including British new wave band, Squeeze; James Morrison; Caro Emerald or Katie Melua.

The City of London Festival also starts only one week after Father's day and is a magnificent three-week-long event held each summer. It hosts an eclectic variety of performances and is considered one of ‘the UK’s leading art events’ that promotes young talent from all creative sectors.

This year's Wimbledon Championships (25 June to 8 July) is not far off and everyone will be expecting a repeat of the recent French Open final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. A pass to any of the matches will surely keep Dad smiling from baseline to baseline.

If Dad has a need for speed then tickets to the upcoming British Grand Prix at Silverstone from 6 to 8 July will surely get his motor running. This season has been wide open so really anyone could win this race including the trio of British drivers: Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Paul Di Resta.

According to HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer Olivier Dombey, Father's Day is a great way to show anyone staying in London there is a lot more on besides the Summer Games.

"Father's Day is traditionally a welcomed beginning of summer. While the London 2012 Summer Games are getting most of the attention this year, the city calendar is packed with heaps of other outstanding events. HotelTravel.com has created hundreds of sizzling summer deals around London that feature either heavily discounted rates or free nights." Mr Dombey added.

Visitors looking to book accommodation for Father's Day or later this summer should look through HotelTravel.com’s London Hotel Promotions.

It promises discounts of up to 40 % off London hotel rates starting from as low as Euro 55 per night.***
