Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for London, England!
Encompassing more than 600 square miles, Metropolitan London is an enormous city with numerous hotel options. Some of the world's best known hotels are in Greater London, many built before the turn of the century, some much earlier. London's high season runs April to October, although rooms also can become decidedly scarce on other occasions. From tea at Brown's to double decker bus transportation, some things never change, even though London is again said to be on a hip culture curve reminiscent of the sixties. Less English and more international than ever, more than 200 languages are spoken here, with the café culture encompassing cuisines from more than 70 countries in some 6,000 restaurants and 5,000 pubs and bars. More than 30 historic gardens and 120 historic buildings add to the charm of a city that also boasts some 200 museums, 600 cinema screens, and 108 music halls. Within an hour of London are 95 golf courses, 2,000 tennis courts, seven ice rinks, and six race courses. Buckingham Palace, the red brick official residence of the queen, is the big magnet for first time visitors. Built as a country house for the Duke of Buckingham, King George III bought it in 1762 to house his brood of 15 children. Queen Victoria made it the official palace, preferring it over St. James Palace. Through various reigns, it has been expanded, upgraded, and restored after World War II bombing.
Located in a 40-acre garden with 600 rooms, tours have been available since 1993 during August and September when the royal family is absent. Open to the public are the State Room, the Grand Staircase, the Throne Room, and other areas designed by John Nash for George IV, as well as the Picture Gallery, with masterpieces by Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Rubens, and others. Buckingham Palace's Changing of the Guard occurs daily from April through July and alternating days for the rest of the year. London has the perfect lodging option for every budget and itinerary, from numerous boarding houses, bed and breakfast inns, to contemporary, full-service hotels, in every neighborhood of the Greater London area.
