You won’t find a hotel situated closer to Buckingham Palace, the home of the British monarchy and one of the most attractive parts of London. Beautiful parks, gardens and Georgian architecture provide elegant surroundings, and you will also be within ten minutes walking distance of Victoria. This is one of London’s most popular tourist areas, littered with fine dining establishments, fashionable pubs, bars and some of London’s most vibrant nightlife. It is also home to top West End productions Wicked and Billy Elliot: The Musical, right around the corner from the hotel. Other tourist attractions such as Westminster Abbey and the House of Parliament are a slightly further walk away. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the ample travel facilities offered by Victoria, such as Victoria Tube Station, home to the District and Circle tube lines right across London. For travel further afield, Victoria Train and Coach stations give access across the UK and to Heathrow airport.
