Places to stay in London – The best locales with plenty to offer

Home to the most prominent royal family, London is the capital city of the UK. With a myriad of attractions evenly distributed all over, London is a major tourist destination with plenty to offer.


Oxford Street

Said to be the busiest shopping avenue in Europe, the street is visited by nearly half a million people daily. With 300 shops strewn all over the area – large department stores, shopping malls, boutiques – Oxford street is buzzing with shoppers from dawn to dusk. During Christmas season, the street is decorated with Christmas lights – which is a tradition that began in 1959 that draws throngs of people into the city. Due to its close proximity to major transport links, the Oxford street serves as an artery with traffic limited to buses and taxis. You can also see masses of locals and peripatetic tourists. To accommodate those who linger on in the city, Oxford-street offers a plethora of lodging facilities.



The city is famous for its many nocturnal attractions. Pubs and clubs found in the area are quite popular for live music and great food. You can find all sorts here including theatres, basement clubs, DJ nights and traditional English clubs. Soho is the best place for folks who'd like to go out with friends, have a drink and enjoy a round of dancing.


Covet Garden

A five-minute walk from Soho and Chinatown is Covet Garden where you will get to enjoy the best dining experience. There is a cornucopia of restaurants that range from affordable Mexican, Indian and Brazilian food stalls to other swanky, high priced restaurants.


Shepherd Bush

The metropolis, Shepherd Bush is a region situated in west London. A little further towards the north is the Shepherd's Bush Green where most of the shopping scene of the area is concentrated. The rest of the region is quite residential, filled with hotels such as Dorsett Shepherds Bush London. If you are a tourist – Goldhawk Road, Uxbridge Road and Askew Road are where you will find the best of pubs, restaurants and cocktail bars. If you take lodgings at a hotel in Shepherds Bush Green, you will have an easy time reaching Holland Park, Notting Hill, White City and Hammersmith.



The Bangladeshi locale, Camden – filled with the aroma of traditional Asian food –is thought to be a region where working class people live – mainly Asian immigrants. Streets in Camden are made more local by their graffiti art, narrowboats tour on Regent's Canal and Camden Market. Pubs and bars found in the region are specially designed to cater to the whims of those visiting the district.


South Kensington

If you are travelling to London with your family and kids, South Kensington is where you will find attractions that are intended for families. With two museums – loaded with exhibits which people of all ages would find interesting – Hyde Park to the north, playgrounds and Winter Wonderland, South Kensington boasts a family friendly neighbourhood which you will immediately take a liking to.



Marylebone also boasts a family-friendly atmosphere with a quick walk to the Hyde Park, London Zoo and Madame Tussauds.



Most people visit Clerkenwell – named after Clerk's well – in May for Clerkenwell Design Week. Commonly known as London's Little Italy, Clerkenwell is home to over 200,000 Italians – which has become sort of a spiritual focus for them with St Peter's Italian Church in the centre. With its local markets and restaurants, the Italian milieu offers its visitors a memorable tourist experience.
