London area guide
Staying in one of our North London hotels, you’re never far from a green space, brilliant boutique or elegant place to eat and drink. Hampstead Heath, Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park (including ZSL London Zoo) are amongst the capital’s biggest and best parks. Islington is great for shopping, cool bars and cosy pubs. Camden Market is open 7 days a week for all things punk and alternative. And North London is a handy place to stay if you fancy heading up to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Watford too.
From our South London hotels, it’s easy to explore Southbank, Greenwich, Greenwich Park, the Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum, Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Being close to London Bridge and various DLR stations means transport connections around and out of the city are great.
To hang out in the hippest place, book one of our East London hotels. Bars, pubs, clubs and places to eat are aplenty around Old Street, Shoreditch and Hackney. Shop ’til you drop in Westfield Stratford City and explore the Olympic Park. East is a great place to stay if you’re in town for a gig at The O2 Arena or need to be in Canary Wharf or The City for work.
Pick a West London hotel if you have tickets to Hammersmith Apollo, Earls Court or you’re supporting your team at Stamford Bridge or going to Wimbledon. Kew Gardens and Richmond Park are close by if you feel like escaping the city buzz and stretching your legs.
