This four star funky, boutique hotel located in central London prides itself on impeccable staff offering a range of services including laundry, airport shuttle and theatre reservations.

The hotel benefits from 24 hour security, a night porter and a lobby bar where you can relax and unwind after a busy day sightseeing.
This luxurious hotel is positioned close to London Bridge Station and Tower Bridge, meaning that many of London’s must see attractions are on your doorstep. The London Dungeons make a great day out with a loved one and even better if you’re visiting with children. The live actors in the experience really bring the gruesome stories of London to life, with gory props and realistic sound effects. Discover the Gunpowder plot of 1605, find out about how they cured the plague in 1665 and for those that dare, you can ride the stomach churning Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom. Just along the Southbank is the London Aquarium, full of exotic fishes, sharks and even penguins! There are scheduled talks and feeding times throughout the day so be sure to get there in time to learn more about your favourite fish!
For foodies, Borough Market is not to be missed. This partly covered fresh produce market doesn’t just take fabulous photos but the gourmet food selection here is truly mouthwatering. It’s a great place to pick up some souvenirs, such as exotic beers, potted plants, iberico ham and even an ostrich egg. Make sure you arrive on an empty stomach so you can try the tasters on offer and buy some lunch to walk round with, such as homemade steak and ale pie, bison burger or seafood paella. For romance, try Magdalen on Tooley Street for affordable fine dining. The short and seasonal menu serves innovate traditional dishes alongside a mainly French wine list.
For evening entertainment, you can easily reach the West End from public transport links or taxi, where you can watch a variety of critically acclaimed performances. Head to the Royal Opera House for ballet or classical music, whilst musicals can be found in much loved favourites such as The Lion King and Grease. If you’re after something more traditional, then Shakespeare’s Globe on the Southbank not only offers an unrivaled atmosphere of a bygone era, but some riveting performances in Shakespearean classics.
