London needs little introduction, drawing visitors and tourists from across the globe for centuries. There has of course been no letup in the 21st century with the 2012 Summer Olympic Games bringing the world’s focus once again. Consequently London’s already impressive range of accommodation was given a boost especially in the eastern districts surrounding the Olympic park. London is obviously a giant of a city in terms of world stature but also with regards to population and in turn area size. Whether you want a London hotel in the heart of the West End, in an affluent district like Knightsbridge or Kensington, near to a major attraction such as Wembley Stadium; London’s hotel range has you covered. Despite its popularity, there are cheap hotel options available across the city ensuring your money can go further with the thousands of attractions throughout the UK capital.
Like many of the great European capital cities, London is dominated by a major river, The Thames. The riverbanks are home to some of the most iconic London sights including The London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and of course the many impressive bridges that cross the river. London Bridge Hotel just south of the bridge it owes its name to, provides a hotel option with views along the Thames. Less than a mile north in the financial district of The City home to the Tower of London and The Gherkin skyscraper, is the Apex City of London.
Although the majority of the central business and tourist districts are north of the Thames, some fine highlights can be found south of the river. The Imperial War Museum, The London Eye, and London Aquarium are all walking distance from Waterloo train station. Park Plaza Westminster Bridge is in a perfect location for all of these attractions and provides views across to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament on the north bank of the Thames. Waterloo was previously the gateway to Europe via the Eurostar but this was relocated and upgraded to its current location in King’s Cross St Pancras, Jurys Inn Islington is in close proximity.

Buckingham Palace is surrounded by St James’ Park and Green Park, with Hyde Park a short walk away.
