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.

  • While the majority of the tourists were content to have their picture taken with a mounted horse guard, there is a great museum in the back. You can program your listening device for a 20 minute or 60...  more »

  • Just passing, I knew last admissions had gone in, I wasn't interested in visiting today, just getting information. I'd barely put my foot through the gate when I was rudely stopped by someone lazing about outside. No, "hello", no ,'I'm sorry, but...", He could've been anyone. Obviously thought I was some thick tourist he could get away with being rude to. Asking who he was before telling him my business, he said he was Andrew Wallace, and the curator. How nice for you, I thought, but you need to be more welcoming of visitors - perhaps especially tourists. You don't know who I am, not that it matters, but how do you know I'm not a concierge, or tour guide, etc. I asked for any literature and was told very abruptly that they don't give our any information. I was polite, but made up my mind that I would NEVER visit our recommend this place to anyone. Unfriendly, unwelcoming, unwelcoming, and unworthy of tourism. Go elsewhere for a friendlier London, because you won't find it here. And that's from the curator (if that's who he really was).
  • Thought about popping in on the way past recently with some family and friends until we found out it would be £6 each to get in...I thought museums were free? Heading off to Hendon to visit The RAF Musuem, now that's a real museum, free entrance and free parking.too
  • Really interesting. A must for those who like military history. The Guards Toy Soldier Centre / Gift Shop next door is also worth a visit.
  • Ticket office is cash only. Shame you can't pay with card.
  • Unannounced Closure on day it should have been open, staff were rude, needed a toilet urgently and wasted journey.
