Featured London Hotels

London offers a wealth of art and culture, trendy shops and global dining opportunities on both sides of the River Thames. Its thriving entertainment scene ranges from theatres and concerts to clubs and comedy venues. When the excitement gets too much, London's parks are ideal for relaxation.


London's West End takes in Oxford Street and Regent Street, with their busy shops and department stores, and the entertainment hubs of Leicester Square and Shaftesbury Avenue.

Also in the West End are buzzing Soho, with its gay pubs and funky cafés, and majestic Trafalgar Square, graced by Nelson's Column and twin fountains. From here, you can walk down Whitehall to Westminster, the political heart of the country.

Across the Thames are South Bank and Bankside, the location of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. Moving eastwards from Trafalgar Square gets you to The City, where gleaming skyscrapers rub shoulders with historic buildings. To the north of the West End are literary Bloomsbury and leafy Regent's Park.

Top attractions in London

The National Gallery collection spans from the Middle Ages to the early 1900s. If you prefer contemporary art, Tate Modern, a former industrial complex across the Thames, houses rotating exhibitions.

Further down the Thames at Tower Bridge you can enjoy great city views from a glass-floored walkway high above the river. Nearby, the Tower of London gives an insight into British royal history.

If you'd rather be outdoors, Covent Garden has street entertainers and a lively covered market. The Changing of the Guard takes place at 11:30am outside Buckingham Palace, or you can head to St. James's Park to see the pelicans being fed.

The concierge recommends…

  • Visiting the British Museum – not only for its world-class collection, but also for the Great Court, an airy indoor piazza designed by Sir Norman Foster.
  • Catching a riverboat service to Royal Observatory, Greenwich, where you can straddle the Prime Meridian – that is, the imaginary line dividing east from west.
  • Taking a spin on the London Eye, a large Ferris wheel on South Bank, for views over London.
  • Browsing the latest fashions at Camden Market. If your interests run towards food, Borough Market is not to be missed, while Portobello Road Market is your destination for antiques, vintage clothing and bric-a-brac.

Hotels in London

London has a wealth of accommodation options, from boutique hotels in leafy neighbourhoods to large establishments in more urban areas. An efficient transport network means you don't have to stay in the West End to enjoy all the city has to offer.

Thanks to its proximity to The City, East London appeals to business travellers. From here, it is easy to reach Shoreditch, where there are many sleek bars and ethnic restaurants in which to relax after closing a deal.

With attractions such as the Natural History Museum and Science Museum, plus the open spaces and activities at Kensington Gardens and adjacent Hyde Park, Kensington is a magnet for families. It's a short bus or Tube ride from here to Knightsbridge, home of the famous Harrods department store, or to King's Road with its stylish boutiques.

Eating Out in London

Visitors to London can try local British specialities – such as jellied eels or pie and mash – or take a gastronomic trip around the world, whether it's burritos from a street-food stall or sushi at a fine-dining restaurant.

Once the go-to area for Indian food, Brick Lane still has plenty of curry houses. It has now opened up to other ethnic restaurants and gourmet burger joints. Nearby Spitalfields Market has lively cafés and eateries to suit all tastes and budgets, as does Soho.

Both The City and Mayfair offer sophisticated dining options, including several restaurants run by celebrity chefs. Mayfair also has many charming venues in which to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea.

In addition to stalls selling charcuterie, cheeses and baked goods, bustling Borough Market also has sit-down establishments offering global bites such as tapas, stir-fries and oysters.

No trip to London would be complete without a visit to a pub, where you can sample real ale – and a real slice of British life.

The chef recommends...

  • Pie and mash: Typical of London's East End, this dish consists of beef mince encased in pastry and served with mashed potatoes and a green parsley sauce known as liquor.
  • Jellied eels: Another East End speciality, these are chunks of freshwater eel boiled in a fish, vinegar and herb stock. When left to cool after cooking, the eels naturally develop an outer jelly layer.
  • Sunday roast: This meal traditionally features a few thin slices of roast beef, served with roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, gravy and a horseradish sauce.

Shopping in London

At the cutting edge of fashion, music and the arts, London is a retail paradise. You can find anything your heart desires in its charming independent shops, glitzy flagship stores of international chains and well-stocked department stores. London's antiques markets are treasure troves of one-off pieces.

Bond Street, Sloane Street and Knightsbridge have a high concentration of luxury French and Italian boutiques. More exclusive products – from watches and cashmere to lingerie and upscale toiletries – are for sale in Mayfair's elegant Burlington Arcade.

Oxford Street, Covent Garden, Shoreditch and King's Road are good bets for casual and affordable clothing.

Charing Cross Road is great for books, with both second-hand shops and Foyles' flagship store, while Soho has a number of independent record stores.

Music lovers can also head to Shoreditch, where Rough Trade East often organises record launches and intimate in-store performances. While in Shoreditch, you can also browse for vintage fashions.

Best indoor shopping

  • Decorated with chandeliers and gilding, the food hall at Fortnum & Mason is worth a visit even if you're not in the market for its premium range of preserves, chocolates and cheeses. Harrods has a similarly breathtaking food hall, with a tiled ceiling and Art Deco details.
  • With its contemporary decor, Harvey Nichols is a reliable destination for the latest fashions by world-renowned designers such as Michael Kors, Maison Margiela and Paul Smith.
  • Westfield Stratford City in East London has more than 300 stores covering all price points, plus restaurants, cinema screens and bowling lanes.

Culture & Nightlife in London

London is abuzz with cultural activities, and there is something for everyone happening every night of the week, whether it's a play or a gig by a touring rock band.

Stage productions in London's West End span from musicals to drama. Fans of the Bard will not want to miss a performance at Shakespeare's Globe on Bankside. Just up the road is the National Theatre. The adjacent Southbank Centre is a cultural complex where you can enjoy world-class concerts.

Boasting a vast dance floor, Ministry of Sound has put Elephant & Castle firmly on the map, and venues like Corsica Studios have helped cement the area's reputation as a clubbing haven.

The choices in Soho include karaoke bars, burlesque clubs, dimly lit cocktail lounges and the live jazz temple that is Ronnie Scott's. At the end of the night, Bar Italia provides the perfect pit stop before heading back to the hotel.

Best live music venues in London

  • Camden Town is a hub for indie and rock music, with venues like The Roundhouse, with its industrial Victorian architecture, and KOKO, housed in a former variety theatre and featuring a gigantic mirror ball.
  • As well as hosting gigs by national and international acts, Kensington's Royal Albert Hall is the main home of the Proms, a series of classical concerts that takes place every summer.
  • High-profile bands tend to play at The O2 arena in Greenwich. Located in the distinctive Millennium Dome, this venue can hold as many as 20,000 people.

Visiting London with a Family

There is no shortage of family-friendly activities in London, and many of them – museums, parks and city farms – are free of charge. Dining out isn't a problem, since many restaurants provide children's menus, and some positively welcome pint-sized patrons.

The Science Museum and Natural History Museum in South Kensington provide hands-on displays and child-orientated workshops. Both museums run a “spend the night” scheme, which allows participants to get up close and personal with the exhibits and enjoy special activities.

South of the Thames, animal-loving kids will enjoy a visit to Vauxhall City Farm, which is home to goats, pigs and other farmyard animals. Riding lessons are available, too. Battersea Park Children's Zoo has small mammals like lemurs, meerkats and chipmunks, plus an interactive play area.

Best family-friendly restaurants in London

  • The Rainforest Cafe recreates the Amazonian jungle with lush greenery, animatronic creatures and special effects such as periodic thunderstorms.
  • At Tom's Kitchen Canary Wharf, kids eat for free at weekends between 10am and 4pm. An activity room and supervised crafts sessions ensure that parents get to relax as well.
  • Bringing together food and bowling, All Star Lanes supplies bumpers and extra-light bowling balls for a child-friendly experience.

    Great stay but tinged with an Expo event
    By Cronshpa
    As usual we always enjoy staying at the Bloomsbury and the children love the Hotel. The staff are excellent and really welcoming. The location is ideal for the West End and many easy connections to [More] the rest of the City. However our stay was tinged with an unnecessary challenge to me and my family. We wanted to go to the toilets on the ground floor off the main reception area and upon going through the door to the corridor where the toilets are located we were challenged as to what we were doing and where we were going by what appeared to be a security type person. We were very taken aback by the affront and stated we wanted to go to the toilets but upon reflection I wasn't at all happy why we were singled out as there were numerous people in that area. It then became apparent we had been racially singled out because there was a Pakistan Expo taking place. It was a very disappointing end to our short break. [Less]
    Always a pleasure
    By Gatch102
    This must be my 9th or 10th stay at the Bloomsbury Hotel, and as always you are greeted at check in with a smile. Staff are always helpful and attentive, but in a way that they really care. There are [More] 7 in our group and we all enjoy our stay, we would chose another hotel otherwise. The guest rooms are small, but you have everything that you need, decor is pleasant but the rooms are always clean and smell fresh. We have opted to dine in on our last few visits due to the quality of the dining experience, again nothing is too much bother for the staff, food is always well prepared and good size portions. Well done Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, keep up the good work and we'll keep coming back. [Less]
    Excellent and convenient hotel
    By Colonials
    We have been staying at this hotel for some years and each time we experience exceptional service. It is so conveniently located to all that we need to do. [Less]
    Comfortable for extended stay
    By ach2
    Comfortable hotel and friendly staff. Limited hotel parking, but additional space available at hotel rate in multi-story carpark adjacent to the hotel. For long term residents there is limited [More] storage space to hang clothes or drawers to store items meaning you have live out of a suitcase - but comfortable room nonetheless. Also for long term residents it is annoying that the room cards have to be reprogrammed every 3 to 5 days. There are approx. 20 of us who stay here and this happens to all of us so it must be an error in the cards or programming system. Very annoying when going to the room after a 12 hour day only to have to trudge back to reception to program the card. [Less]
    Clean, value for money
    By StuartC
    We stayed at the Holiday Inn Harlow and found the hotel extremely clean and great value for money. This was our first stay with the holiday Inn group and would highly recommend them. Having stayed [More] with other budget hotel groups previously we found that Holiday Inn were many levels above their counterparts. The staff were efficient, friendly and seemed to put customers first, a nice feeling in this age of many commercial companies only thinking about their bottom line and not about customer care. [Less]
    Poor Location
    By GNL62
    Location is not great, and local amenities are poor. [Less]
    Wonderful stay
    By Boomer59
    Great stay, wonderful staff, Westfields shopping interesting. Nice suite [Less]
    Superb staff, lovely hotel
    By Pinxit
    I stayed here with my 9 year old daughter. The staff are exceptional! I was in the Intercontinental Fiji 3 months ago, and I can honestly say that the staff were so good at Stratford Staybridge that [More] despite the Fiji surroundings, I would stay there again in a heartbeat in preference! Wow! Hotel immaculately clean (and I am OCD). I managed to block the toilet on a weekend and maintenance was there almost immediately, followed by the cleaner. The food was excellent at breakfast. Some might think the breakfast limited in choice, but there was always a choice of hot, continental and cereals. And all day pastries available if you lie in and miss breakfast (but it was such a nice breakfast we never did!). Staff made you feel so at home, made you comfortable to socialise if you wanted to, but comfortable not to if you didn't. The lounge area is lovely, relaxing, homely. Staff went out of there way to make everything as easy as possible. Nothing was too much trouble. Stay here! It is an easy run into London on the Central line or DLR to Canary Wharf area. Much easier than I had expected! Right by the Westfield shopping centre, so plenty of options for eating in the evening (or day), and a supermarket there as well. Why are you still reading this and not online booking it instead? [Less]
    My favourite UK hotel
    By Jimbobbrad
    2nd visit to this hotel and it was as good as the 1st. I have another 6 nights booked here in the coming month and didn't even look at any other hotel chain before booking the Staybridge again. [More] Location on the westfield shopping site is excellent for massive choice of places to eat/drink plus its a fast easy train/tube ride to central london [Less]
