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.

  • A short walk from kings cross station. Down little back roads and you realise that there is a canal. The museum is very small, but gives a powerful punch to the history of the canal and ice trade. Ver...  more »

  • Had a good experience working at this museum as a front-desk volunteer while studying in London. Also, good place for those who are going to spend their family outings during summer here in London. For the staff, I miss you all.. Cheers!!
  • If, a year ago, you'd told me i'd be posting a positive review of a tiny museum dedicated to canals...
  • Well worth a visit, a bit off the beaten track. Good exhibits on display and was offered and accepted an oral introduction to the musuem.
  • Great little museum on the canal. An old ice house with plenty of history about that, canals and boats too. Make sure to watch the films which are always playing upstairs. £4 entry fee for adults.
  • The staff and employees here were so friendly, they made me feel like I was being welcomed to my own home haha. The museum is small yet there's so much to explore. There's a ground and first floor gallery. Outside there's a section of canal too. There's also a small souvenir section toward the entrance. One of the best museums I have visited in London and with affordable prices too :) enjoyable for all audiences including those with less mobility.
