  • They really don't want to be a tourist attraction with the hours they keep! Closed more often than not!
  • Lovely historic house. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Interesting short guided tour with beautiful artefacts
  • A historic Georgian villa run by The National Trust houses a diverse collection of decorative arts and paintings. A beautiful rose garden and avenue of cherry trees backs onto Greenwich Park.

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.
