Butler's Wharf, London

3.7
Easy to spot during a tour of London's most historical landmarks, Butler's Wharf conjures a sense of Victorian-era London. Though it is now home to a number of luxury flats and restaurants, the wharf was built in the late 1800s to accommodate the shipping industry. Stroll along the southern bank of the River Thames just east of the Tower Bridge to get an idea of what the city's industrial areas may have looked like over a century ago. Butler's Wharf is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, London Edition.

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.
