Charing Cross has been seen officially as the absolute centre of London’s sprawling mass for hundreds of years now, and it’s difficult to be any more immersed in the city than while staying at one of the Charing Cross hotels. The area is within minutes walk of a huge variety of cultural and historical landmarks of Britain, including Whitehall, Buckingham Palace, 10 Downing Street, Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, the Strand, Piccadilly, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, the National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House and the Royal Festival Hall. While it is necessarily a bustling and intense area of town, the attractions in and around Charing Cross cannot be missed, and there is no better way to experience them than from one of the many Charing Cross hotels.
As you would expect, five star hotels are in abundance here, so it can be difficult to stay cheaply. One of the nearest five stars is the legendary Savoy, which is something of a London landmark, overlooking the Thames. Built in 1889, the Savoy was the first luxury hotel in Britain, and has an incredible history. Recently subject to the most ambitious hotel renovation in British history, the Savoy sparkles with Edwardian and Art Deco glamour.
Slightly less prestigious is the four star Grand Hotel at Trafalgar Square, still a place of extreme luxury and housed inside a historic landmark, Northumberland House.
While there are no real budget hotels in this area, Northumberland House is available between July and September, while it takes a break from being student accomodation.
Charing Cross railway station services most parts of southeast England, including historic Canterbury. The underground station sits on the Bakerloo line between Piccadilly Circus and Embankment, and on the Northern Line between Leicester Square and Embankment.
