Find the Right Place to Stay in London With Careful Planning

By Adam Singleton

As one of Europe's largest and most imposing cities, it's easy for tourists and travellers to feel daunted in London. After all, with the tube network confusing you at one turn and vast swathes of people on Oxford Street overwhelming you at another, it's likely that you'll get lost more than once! However, with a bit of careful planning you'll be able to locate a London hotel that suits your needs - so it's less likely that you'll misplace yourself and your travel companions in the big city's diversity of attractions.

If you're keen to spend your holiday sightseeing in London, for example, hotels in Westminster are most likely to suit your purpose. By using Westminster as your base, you'll be able to enjoy fast and convenient access to some of London's most iconic attractions: including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Waterloo Bridge. What's more, you'll be just a stone's throw away from the London Eye - the perfect way to survey the city of London's breathtaking architectural skyline in style.

On the other hand, people keen to spend their time in London's most fascinating museums and premier art galleries should find a hotel in Russell Square or South Kensington. Russell Square is home to the British Museum, the British Library and a range of antique bookstores and cafés - an ideal area for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in London's more sophisticated pursuits. Additionally, hotels in South Kensington offer travellers easy access to the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum - so you'll find it simple to indulge in London's cultural hotspots without getting lost among its imposing buildings.

Of course, many people looking for hotels in London are visitors hoping to indulge in a little - or a lot! - of retail therapy during their stay in Britain's bustling capital. And it's perfectly possible to find hotels in London's premier shopping districts in order to minimise the amount of transport you'll need to take during your shopping holiday. For instance, if high street shopping is your major point of interest, you'll be able to find hotels in and around Oxford Street - so you'll be able to locate the UK's busiest and best shopping location with no hassle whatsoever.

Moreover, if you're planning to hit London's most exclusive fashion outlets and designer boutiques, there are many hotels to be found in the West End and Knightsbridge. From here, you'll be able to locate top retail destinations, like Harvey Nichols and Harrods, and you'll even be close to London's vibrant theatre district, making it possible for you to take in a show in the evening as well.

Whatever the purpose of your holiday in London, it's certain that you'll be able to find a London hotel that's appropriate for your favourite pursuits. All it takes is some careful planning and you'll be on your way to an unforgettable London adventure in no time!
