Accommodation in Camden

by Geriflux

Hi, i'm just wondering if anyone can recommend a decent hostel or a budget hotel in or close to Camden? I've checked out one or two hostels on the internet in Camden but they don't have twin rooms(it's a twin room we're after).Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. Geri

budget travel. Where to stay?

by mpls2000

My girlfriend and I will be coming from Singapore to London for the first time.

There are 2 main places we are going.

Hampstead and Marylebone.

We intend to stay in some budget hostels (or b&b) outside the expensive London city.

Hopefully the sleeping place could be somewhere near Hampstead or Marylebone.

Any good, economic, safe and comfortable accommodation to recommend?

Many thanks

Look at www.hostelworld.com or www.hostelbookers.com. They list hostels in London, so you can choose which fits your budget and location needs.

There is a Youth Hostel at Hampstead Heath:

B&b accommodation in London is not the same as the rest of the UK. In London, b&b are usually just small hotels which have no bar/restaurant facilties, whereas outside London they are rooms in ordinary houses (although still businesses..it is not a 'home-stay' arrangement). You are better to look for hostel accommodation in London.

Hi there,

thanks for your info.

I tried to book the hostel you recommended and I got this message:
Oops! This accommodation has now sold out
>> click here to make another search <<

Alternatively, The accommodations listed below are available for the dates of your stay

Could you please recommend me another source? Somewhere outside the central London, and near Hampstead and Marylebone will be nice.

Thanks

Yes, London is both popular and expensive.

Use the two sites I gave to explore your options. There will be availibility somewhere.

Go up the hill and you come to Hampstead, go downhill and you will come to Marylebone.

Camden is an interesting and lively place. All the decadent things that are forbidden to young people in Singapore....well they do them all in Camden.

Travel Tips for London

I absolutely loved touring the...

I absolutely loved touring the Globe Theatre on the Thames! I only wish we could have caught a performance there! Riding the Tube was a great adventure! Going up and down, down, down, into the bowels of the city! Then we come up to the most magnificent sights!

Half Price Theatre Tickets

by Mariajoy

This ticket booth started in Leicester Square in 1980 offering half price theatre tickets. Back then it was just a little hut but in recent years has become a larger permanent structure offering the best prices for discount tickets to West End shows. There is a 2.50GBP service charge on each ticket and the queues are looooong - but definitely worth waiting for. Tickets can be paid for by credit card or in cash (including Euro). A new booth has recently opened at Canary Wharf DLR station but cash is not accepted.

Horseguards Parade Inspection

by phil_uk_net

Although the parades are mainly ceremonial there is an important military aspect too.
No matter how well turned out these guards are, the sergeant-major dude will always give them a hard time and find fault. This is, after all, his job.

Post Boxes

by grandmaR

I took this picture of what we would call a 'mail box' with a bottle on top (it isn't a trash bin) because it seemed representative of London. I find that these Post Boxes have whole web pages devoted to mapping and preserving British Post Boxes.

History
"In 1635 the 'Letter Office' was created to carry public mail at a speed of 7mph in the summer months and 5mph in the winter...Inns were used as the collection point for mail as it was easy for the post boys to pick up the mail and change horses... All London coaches left from the General Post Office and apparently spectators would gather last thing at night as 28 Royal Mail coaches would set off at once for all parts of the country."

There was a long history of differnt types of Post Boxes (including one that was designed without a letter slot and none of which had the words Royal Mail on them) and they were painted in various different colors. But at present, due to pressure from English Heritage, the 113,000 post boxes in Britain, "those obdurate pillars of the community which first appeared in Jersey in 1852" are going to be kept in operation by the Post Office.

There is a British Postal Museum & Archive at Freeling House, Phoenix Place, London WC1X 0DL. I have not visited this museum, but Freeling House is part of the Mount Pleasant sorting office complex.

They do have Stores in Europe

by TravelJunkie

Comfortable Shoes! I wore my Birkenstocks like always and had happy feet! My husband on the other hand wore his tennis shoes and did not have happy feet.

Bring a light jacket for nighttime. My mother returned with horror stories of British toilet paper...and samples to back up her tale. I am glad to report that with the exceptiopn of the Charlotte St car Park in Bath, the UK had advanced its toilet paper technology.

You don't need to bring any from home. If you need it, Boots the Chemist probably has it.
