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.

  • Great selection of teas. There's a tea bar as well where you can get a nice selection of hot and cold tea based drinks. Lose tea also comes in small taste packets for you to try
  • Huge variety. Nice little shop. Not a huge amount of seating.
  • Finally, I've found a teahouse that serves in the ceremonial way, or as they like to call it "True brew". They provide a nice experience here that complements the tea such as the tea ware and friendly staff. Definitely a good place to relax!
  • Definitely the best teahouse I've ever seen. For those of you who don't know the Mei Leaf YouTube channel or their website, you should go visit it right now and you'll be amazed. Regarding the teahouse, it's great to get all the info about the exposed teas like source, cultivar, origin, picking and processing and also the elevation. Long story short, if you're in London, visit this place!
  • Attended a good tea lecture presented by Don and Celine, who are true experts in the field. The shop has a relaxed atmosphere, is full of passionate staff and beautiful tasting teas. Thank you for opening this wonderful shop.
