Best Value Hotels in Central London Westminster
Not many people know that Westminster is a city in its own right, a twin to the City of London which lies to its east. Westminster is the home of the Houses of Parliament, making it the seat of Britain’s government. Just over the road from the Gothic impressiveness of the Houses of Parliament is Westminster Abbey. It’s a beautiful building covered in intricate sculptures on the outside and gloriously gilded on the inside and is where British kings and queens have, for centuries, been crowned. As well as visiting these iconic attractions take a stroll along the River Thames on the Embankment and cross Westminster Bridge to visit the Coca-Cola London Eye and the SEA LIFE London Aquarium. Nearby, you’ll find the theatres of London’s West End and the shopping attractions of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Mayfair.

Paddington Basin and Little Venice on the Regent’s Park Canal make up a revitalised area that lies adjacent to the station and is home to restaurants and bars, some of which are actually on canal boats. Pick up canal boats from here that take you to ZSL London Zoo and the bustle of Camden Lock and Camden Market. While in the Paddington area, take a tour of Lord’s Cricket Ground or have your picture taken on the iconic zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios.

What are the Top Properties in Borough of Greenwich ?
Although a little further out of central London, Greenwich is easy to reach by Docklands Light Railway or by River Thames Clipper boats. So important is Greenwich historically, it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also a district that is beautiful one minute, gritty the next and always interesting. Greenwich Park is home to the Old Royal Observatory, the Queen’s House and the Royal Naval College which all make up Maritime Greenwich while a tour of the Cutty Sark, a preserved tea and wool clipper ship dating from the mid-19th-century, delights visitors of all ages. The Royal Observatory with the Prime Meridian Line is one of the world’s most important historic scientific sites. As a contrast to history and grand architecture, take a stroll around Greenwich Market. This is actually made up of several small markets located close together in the borough’s narrow streets.

What are the Best Hotels in Canary Wharf ?
While Canary Wharf and London Docklands can be reached on the Jubilee Line or the Docklands Light Railway, a leisurely stroll of about an hour along the Thames Path is by far the most enjoyable way of reaching these East End districts. The Thames Path takes you through St Katherine’s and Tobacco docks, the converted warehouses of Wapping and the Shadwell and Limehouse Basins before reaching the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf. These are some of the tallest buildings in Britain. Stop off to admire the narrow boats that moor up where Regent’s Canal meets the Thames at Limehouse and have a drink in famous riverside pubs such as The Grapes and The Prospect of Whitby. The area is also home to the fascinating Ragged School Museum and the Museum of London Docklands.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a destination in itself with pretty canal-side walks and flowerbeds while the red tangle of metal that is the ArcelorMittal Orbit is the longest and tallest tunnel slide in the world. If you don’t want to brave the slide, then the view from the top is well worth the ascent in the lift. Stratford is also home to the huge Westfield shopping centre as well as a theatre, seasonal rooftop film venue and a whole host of trendy bars and restaurants.

What are the Top Hotels in London Bridge Area ?
The London Bridge Station district is packed full of activities from wandering through the cobbled streets and eclectic mix of stalls that make up Borough Market to exploring the imposing Tower Bridge. If you’re lucky, you might arrive just as the bridge goes up to let a yacht or cruise ship sail gracefully through. For some of the best views in London, if not the whole country, take the lift to the top of The Shard or go back in time to a more nautical era with a tour of the Golden Hinde replica. The real Golden Hinde took Sir Francis Drake around the world in the 16th-century. In contrast, HMS Belfast survived D-Day and gives a glimpse into the more modern navy.
