The area boasts some of the best budget friendly properties in the city
In facts, the area boasts some of the best cheap hotels in the city. Whether you want accommodation for one or rooms for the whole family, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Try to choose a b&b close to the main site if you don’t know the district well or look at accommodation further afield, perhaps across the river in Victoria or Chelsea, if you are used to the city’s extensive underground, train and bus system.
From some wards and rooms, you can even see HMS Belfast, the famous museum ship, at its permanent mooring on the Thames. The London’s Bridge healthcare facilities are outstanding and the hospital has separate outpatient sites at various locations including the Shard and Broad Street, all of which are close to several cheap hotels and bed and breakfast establishments.
Some of the best areas to look at when searching for a b&b include Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Bankside and the City of London. These historic districts also feature some of the city’s most exciting landmarks and attractions and you can walk to many of them from your bed and breakfast in less than 15 minutes.
