  • An oasis of old London tucked away in the middle of the corporate centre of the modern city. The house is a testament to a sometimes little known but important figure in British history. Come and read the room details in each room to celebrate the best of what our country can be: fair, intelligent and humorous.
  • Nice place to visit and you can see the statue of his cat in the end of the street
  • Just awesome. A must visit. Great knowledgeable staff.
  • The house of popular internet meme... oh and also the writer of the first English dictionary. Well worth the visit.
  • excellent if you love history of English language !

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.
