Those with a tourist hunger will discover that the hotel is only a short distance from the Tower of London and its Crown Jewels treasure. A moderate walk or a very quick tube journey will get you to the attraction where you can sport some of Londons famous sights, from the Towers ravens to the Beefeater guards.
Those looking for something slightly different should head to Tower Hill tube station in the early evening. Here youll be able to join the Jack the Ripper walking tour. An educated guide will lead you down the archaic streets of Whitechapel and Aldgate showing you some of the spots said to have been home to Londons most famous killer.
Whilst in the region be sure to take a photograph of and stroll across the impressive Tower Bridge. The suspension bridge is the subject of the popular urban myth that American Robert McCulloch purchased the neighbouring London Bridge and moved it to Arizona believing it to be the Tower Bridge. As good a story as this is, unfortunately it has now been debunked.
After a visit to the Tower of London and its accompanying Bridge, the options are endless. Visitors to the City Hotel London can stroll along the river banks of the Thames or hop on an underground train to any one of the numerous attractions populating the capital, all of which are found within reach of an easy return journey to the hotel.
