  • A great introduction to Historic Greenwich. Hop off the DLR at Island Gardens Station and take the spiral staircase down to the pedestrian tunnel. You surface on the Greenwich side right next to the C...  more »
  • On the way to Greenwich we're through that tunnel. Easy time something else. Who has no pleasure on stairs, just take the elevator.

  • Opened in 1902, One of only two foot tunnels that pass beneath the River Thames. Free to use and you can take the spiral staircase or hop in the lift.
  • One of the most obscure, amazing landmarks of London, the WWII-vintage foot tunnel running under the River Thames. Once the DLR stops running south to Greenwich, this is your fastest way to get south of the River. Open 24/7, with big, 50+ person lifts on either ends of the tunnel.
  • One of the many free things to check out in London, you get to walk under the Thames. The steps are easy, or there's an elevator, an easy walk and you're on the other side of the river. :-)
  • I've to confess that was strange to pass through the tunnel on foot, however was an impressive experience once it's clean, organized and has a lift.
  • Its around 110 years old tunnel and still it doing its purpose.

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.
