There's no shortage of things to do in London

Samuel Johnson said "when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life" back in the 18th Century but it still stands true today. Busy and buzzing, London is a city of contrasts: with the edgy street stalls of Camden market and the polished aisles of Harrods both fitting seamlessly into the city's shopping scene. You can spend an entire weekend getting lost in The British Museum, or lose an evening in the city's world-class cocktail bars. You don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy yourself, as our budget guide to London shows.

Where to stay in London

London is a sprawling city with lots of different neighbourhoods to explore. The West End is where you'll find many luxury hotels in London, conveniently located near the main sights. Covent Garden and Bloomsbury are also great if you want to be right in the heart of the action, with West End theatres and Oxford Street shops just a short stroll away. If you'd rather get away from the hustle and bustle, hotels in the leafy areas of Kensington and Earl's Court are ideal. Trendy travellers will be impressed by hotels in Shoreditch and East London, while business travellers will find the perfect base with Docklands hotels and hotels in the Square Mile.

Planning a short trip to London? Try hotels near London's airports

Hotels near the London airports are ideal if you're just hopping across for an overnighter, whether that's for a business meeting or catching a connecting flight elsewhere. Getting into the city is quick and hassle-free from Gatwick and Stansted, especially if you take an express train. London City and Heathrow have even better connections, and are on the city's public transport lines. After a day of exploring the city, you'll be able to roll out of bed and straight into the check in queue in the morning.

Find the ideal accommodation, from luxury London hotels with swimming pools to the best cheap hotels in London

Whether you're looking for boutique hotels in London or a sprawling business hotel, accommodation in London is as diverse as the city's population. You'll find some of the world's most opulent five star hotels in London, as well as cheap and cheerful hostels perfect for backpackers on a budget. Many of the city's old Edwardian townhouses have been transformed into B&B's and chain hotels, so even cheap accommodation in London feels sophisticated and elegant.

Exploring the City from your London hotel

London would be impossible to explore solely on foot (trust us, we've tried.) Choose a hotel near a tube station if you want to get around easily. If you're in a hurry you won't need to queue to buy a ticket, you can use your contactless card to tap in and out of public transport just like an Oyster card. Note that your bank may charge you for the Euro to Sterling conversion. If it's your first time in the Big Smoke, a hop on hop off bus tour is a great way to get your bearings.

Search with us to find the perfect base for your London city break. Our filters make it easy to find the perfect place to stay, whether you're looking for hotels in London with car parking or the one with the best afternoon tea.

London is one of the only cities I’ve been to that truly lives up to the “hype”.
