  • We thought that this would be a great way to fill an hour, as we were in this part of town. We left 2 1/2 hours later, having learned a huge amount about the Thames tunnel, as well as the life of I K ...  more »

  • Midnight apothecary... fabulous rooftop garden experience. Lethal but yummy cocktails, fun toasting marshmallows around the fire. The tour was a little less than i expected but would definitely go again! So local!
  • I thought we would be able to see the tunnel but the visit only shows what would be its access. It's interesting to discover a hidden history of London and Rotherhithe area. The tour guide was lovely and very informative
  • The Shaft is a cool venue for performance art - went yesterday for "Japanese Sandscapes", which was very well-staged in the space, with sand art projected on the wall above musicians and a dancer. It gets cold, so wear a coat, and be aware the toilets are in a separate part of the site.
  • Quite fascinating history. However, it was not that interactive and the guides were a bit socially awkward. I would definitely go, but I wouldn't expect to be overwhelmed
  • We've been here for the Midnight Apothecary at the gardens. It's not like showed on the videos. Crowded, just one fire and the cocktails too expensive being half of them water. But the place is quite nice.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
