When arranging a trip to London, it can seem daunting to choose which of the fabulous areas to stay. From up-and-coming trendy streets of Shoreditch to the pristine glamour of Kensington, the possibilities can seem endless. To save you hours of umming and ahhing, we recommend that you go ahead and book a stay in the West End. Home to some of the best 5-star hotels in London and some of the best tourist attractions this city has to offer; the West End is the perfect place to base your stay. Read on for some suggestions of things to do during your stay.
By situating yourself in the West End, you will be in the heart of the entertainment district of London. Whether you want the shop-til-you-drop action Oxford Street and Camden Market or an opportunity to see the marvels that the museums have to offer, the West End is the perfect place to start. Head out from the Montcalm Hotel London and go straight to the British Museum. Boasting magnificent architecture and remarkable artefacts, this is a must-see when visiting the city. Follow this by swinging down along Regents Street to Piccadilly Circus, London’s very own interpretation of Times Square. Enjoy the shops, have a coffee and enjoy some people watching in this bustling area of town. Conveniently, you will also be very close to the Science Museum. Expand your mind while having a great time in this inspiring museum, before heading back to your 5-star accommodation in London.
When in London, you will be spoilt for choice for dining. Whether you favour independent cafes, designer cuisine in glitzy locations or familiar names you love, the West End has something for everyone. For a lunchtime treat, we recommend that you head down to the Brasserie Zedel. Just a short walk from the Montcalm Hotel London, this fabulous independent cafe offers stylish vibes and delicious french food. When it comes to dinner, why not travel slightly further afield? With plenty of fantastic venues such as Madero’s for South American, Hankies for amazing Indian street food, or the Joe Allen Restaurant for award-winning meals on your doorstep, you may not want to. However, by visiting Shoreditch, you will be able to experience one of the most trendy areas in the city and enjoy a fabulous meal as well! The Montcalm Hotel Shoreditch is home to the charming Plate Restaurant. Stop by for stunning French-British fusion cuisine in a delightful location.
A night to remember
When staying in the West-End, you must take a night on the town. After an early dinner, we recommend that you pop into one of the glamorous West End Bars, before taking in a show at one of the World Famous West End Theatres. Enjoy a classic such as Les Miserables or Phantom of the Opera, or take in something exciting and new, such as Matilda or Heathers, for an amazing evening of entertainment. But don’t stop there, if there’s one thing you shouldn’t miss in the West End, it’s the incredible nightlife scene. From exclusive extravaganzas at Cirque le Soir to the quirky Piccadilly Institute, the West End Bars and clubs promise for a brilliant, memorable night.
