B&Bs in London

When you think of London, perhaps you picture bowler hats and briefcases on bustling city streets, shopaholics dashing from store to store, or the city’s lively neon night-life? While this is a big part of London’s charm for some, the diversity of the British capital means that it’s also a great location for a more personal, relaxed break that can be tailored to suit your own pace. London’s top tourist attractions blend seamlessly with its beautiful green parks and rivers striking the perfect balance for a B&B break.

Things to see in London

Start your adventure with a morning visit to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard outside the official residence of the nation’s monarch. Its manicured gardens, as well as St James’ Park to the rear, provide a colorful and relaxing atmosphere in which to take an unwinding stroll. Many of the cultural institutions in the city offer free entry, such as the Museum of London and the V&A, as well as the National Gallery with the iconic bronze lions of Trafalgar Square right on its doorstep. The labyrinthine Natural History Museum houses incredible life-size models of some of the largest, tallest, and rarest animals ever to have lived, including a full-size blue whale and an animatronic T-Rex! The London Eye in the heart of the city is a great way to take in the vast expanse of the city skyline. Step into your bubble and get whisked up, up and away.

B&Bs in London

Relaxing bed and breakfast accommodation is available throughout the city offering a more personal, laidback experience than some of the capital’s other options. From small, one-room lodgings shared with the property owner, to multi-story affairs with private bathrooms—you’ll find the perfect B&B in London to suit any taste and budget. The majority of London B&Bs are exactly as you’d expect: pleasant and well-kept, cheap and cheerful, and you’ll generally be sharing a roof with attentive owners, happy to provide directions and recommendations to get the most out of your vacation in London.

Where to stay in London

There are a number of centrally located districts in London that offer a great selection of B&B accommodation. The Kings Cross area, particularly around Argyle Square, has a very generous selection of B&Bs, and the competition generally keeps prices low and quality high. As well as offering excellent transport connections, Kings Cross has seen major regeneration in the past decade and is now one of London’s premier music hotspots. You’ll also find plenty of cheap accommodation in the Earls Court area, which is within easy walking distance of Kensington Gardens. The Bayswater area, north of Hyde Park is another good, central option for B&Bs in London, and is also known for its vibrant multicultural restaurants, bars, and stores.

How to get to London

If you’re traveling to London by air, you have a choice of 6 major international airports—Heathrow being the city’s main aerial hub—and all offer regular public transport connections to and from the city center. There are also high-speed rail connections from the center of London to mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel. London’s public transport network is a model of British efficiency, and no trip to the city is complete without a ride on the Tube—the world’s oldest (and most modern!) underground train system— or a trip on one of the city’s iconic red, double-decker buses.
