Best Places To Stay In London For First-Timers

By:- Sahil Luthra

West London Kensington

Kensington is one of London’s wealthiest areas. The area is home to some of the city’s top attractions including Kensington Palace.

Chelsea

Today, the street is a place for designer shopping and posh restaurants. Known as the fashion capital of London, shopping is one of the main draws here

Notting Hill

During the August bank holiday, Notting Hill plays host to one of Europe’s biggest street festivals, the Notting Hill Carnival.

Paddington

We recommend taking a trip to Merchant Square. Here, you can enjoy a bite to eat from street food vendors and the Water Maze is popular in the summer months.

Hyde Park

The Hyde Park area is home to one of the largest and most well-known green spaces in London. Hyde Park itself is one of London’s most popular attractions.

North London Kings Cross

There’s Coal Drops Yard – King’s Cross’ ultimate shopping and dining scene. Fans of J.K. Rowling’s, Harry Potter can visit the famous platform 9 ¾ at Kings Cross Station.

Camden Town

You can catch a gig at Camden’s iconic music venue, The Roundhouse. Or, relax in one of the many gastropubs or a more traditional British boozer.

Central London Marylebone

This is a beautiful Edwardian bookstore which travel enthusiasts will love thanks to its huge selection of travelogues and guides.

Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury is known to many as the intellectual and literary hub of London. As well as being home to the world-known Bloomsbury Publishing, it also has some of the best educational institutes in the UK.

Mayfair

If you’re after a bit of luxury and pampering then Mayfair is the place to stay. It’s London’s most wealthiest neighborhood and you are unlikely to find anything less than 4 or 5 star here.

Soho

It was once known as London’s red-light district, and if you look close enough, you’ll still find remnants of that. But today, it’s the epicenter of entertainment come day and night.
