Thanks to its splendid location, the Elmwood Hotel London puts guests on the doorstep of many of the citys finest attractions and landmarks. The underground railway, which operates from Kings Cross, traverses the whole city. This station connects to more underground lines than any other therefore offering to drop-off passengers just about anywhere they would like to go.
Before hopping on the tube though, be sure to marvel at the splendour of the St. Pancras station building which has recently been fully renovated. It is a stunning sight that harks back to the grandeur of days gone by. In fact, take the time to visit some of the parks in the Bloomsbury district in which the hotel sits. Visitors are often surprised to learn of quiet gardens and stunning traditional buildings located so close to the bust stations.
Examples of some of the landmarks that lie close to the hotel, within walking distance, are the British Library, the British Museum, Euston, and Camden Town. Those that have difficulties walking, or just plain dont want to walk, can simply jump on the tube and be these locations in a matter of minutes.
Many tourists visiting London frequent the Westminster region and the banks of the River Thames. Here theyre able to gaze upon the likes of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben clock, St. Pauls Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, the Tower of London, and Tower Bridge. This list alone will soon fill-up a photo-book.
Other destinations such as Oxford Street (for shopping), the West End (for theatre), and Hyde Park (for general relaxation and concerts) can all be found easily using public transport, be it the underground, London buses, or even a rickshaw.
Before heading back to the Elmwood Hotel London, visitors are recommended to try the gastronomy. Throughout the city numerous restaurants can be found. For something a little different, head to the China Town district, just off Leicester Square, for some authentic Chinese cuisine.
