Make a date in the West End

by | Apr 27, 2013 | Hotels & Motels

London’s west end is a vibrant, cosmopolitan part of the city which never seems to sleep. The West End has been, for many years, known as the hub of London. It never closes, and there is so much to do in a day that you will be amazed, both as a new visitor or someone who actually lives there. As a city, London has so much to offer, including its architecture, nightclubs, galleries, museums, tourist attractions and things to do. London is a city that booms with energy but there are also many things to do for the more somber minded people. If you want loud music and bustling nightclubs you have those right in the heart of the city, but if you want a quiet restaurant or theatre you have that too, within easy reach.

It is important that hotels in London’s West End can offer as wide a range of services as possible, including conference and meeting rooms as well as comfortable and clean rooms for guests to sleep in. A hotel should be pristine at all times, the staff should be knowledgeable, friendly and professional and, as a guest, you should feel as though the place is a home while you are there.

Many hotels look nothing like a hotel from the street, but once you step over the threshold it is like walking into an episode of Downton Abbey. The Victorian influence and décor is still very prevalent in many London hotels. Many of the features might still be the original features, built when the hotel was designed and others may be reclaimed features, set into a refurbished hotel made to look and feel authentic. That will probably not bother many people because they just want the place to look beautiful and most of them are quite breathtaking.

What to See When Visiting London

Because London is such a famous city people generally go there to visit the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Madame Tussaud’s. There is, however, far more to the city than many imagine. Its colourful history means that London is awash with walkways, secret tunnels, park areas and attractions that are slightly more off the beaten track to the regular tourist attractions. If you are intending to visit the West End, you will find famous stores, such as Harrod’s, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason as well as the usual ‘high street’ stores you expect to see. You will also find Holland Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Park within walking distance of each other. Local Attractions are Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch, Hyde Park and The Albert Hall. So, when you visit London next, be sure to pay a visit to the West End and see what it has to offer. You won’t be disappointed.
