    Good and very central.

    by

    The first thing that strikes you about the Grange Langham Court is the delightful black and white tiled exterior which you can see in the image. I am not sure what architectural style this would be described as but I found it very aesthetically pleasing. A closer examination of the building shows that it was formerly a Nursing Home which is quite usual for this area as it is near Harley Street and very much in the medical area of central London. It is also located very convenient to Regent Street and Oxford Street which are some of the main shopping area, it really could not be much more central.

    The reception area is very pleasant and check-in was quick and efficient. The room has all the amenities you would espect of a venue in this price range with things like tea and coffee making facilities, tolietries, trouser press, cable TV etc. and I have to report that the bed was very comfortable. Not that you need it in this British so-called summer but there is air-conditioning as well.

    There was only one slight drawback and that was a degree of road noise quite early in the morning. If this is an issue, I would suggest requesting a room at the rear of the premises. Otherwise, it is an excellent choice and the location is great. If you do not wish to use the hotel dining facilities (I did not), there are ample eating and drinking options nearby.

    Unique Quality: Nothing unique, just a comfy, well-appointed and staffed hotel in a very central location.

    Directions: It is about equidistant between Oxford Circus and Great Portland Street tube stations, just off Great Titchfield Street.

STRIKE

by PMCB

With all the strikes, how hard is it for a tourist to get around London? Does this effect Heathrow Express?
Thank you for all comments.

Re: STRIKE

by johnaalex

I assume you are talking about the 2 strikes that have affected the London Underground. The Heathrow Express is not hit by them.

'All the strikes' is rather an exaggeration. There have been a few 24-hour Tube strikes, but their dates are known well in advance. 4 strikes have been planned: 6th Sept, 3rd Oct, 2nd and 28th Nov. Unofficial and unpublicised-in-advance action is well-nigh unheard of in the UK these days.

Even if there is a Tube strike it is not difficult to get around central London: there are buses, there are taxis and it is possible to walk. Walking is actually the best way to see any European city, London included.

The Heathrow Express is not part of the Tube nor the London Transport system. The Tube to Heathrow will be affected on strike days but the overground 'ordinary' railway Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect will not be (nor will coaches to and from the airport).

Also, for the last two tube strikes, my son was able to use the Northern line to go to and from work. I don't say it was operating as frequently as normal but he said that there was a train more or less every five minutes. The Northern line is the black line on the tube map, so you will see that if that is running, you can access a lot of places in the central zone.

If you experience a transport strike, an alternative is using a taxi ie heathrowminicabs.com or heathrowairport-taxi.co.uk The first is tel 0208 574 0868

We are staying near Queensway tube and plan to see the sites near London Bridge. We are pretty fit so would say walking is actually a possibility? How long would it take? We plan to see soho as well so we would walk right through that area on our way.
That would be great!

yes about 5 miles and may take you 2 hours give or take. or just take a Tube or a bus.

I loved catching the musicals...

by Marjie

I loved catching the musicals in London. I would definitely recommend at least one theatre production during your visit. Also, you must travel on the Tube. That is the real way to experience the local atmosphere...no taxis for me! ;)

Clingfilm man at Covent garden.

by Elodie_Caroline


I guess I should have put this under warnings and dangers really? hahaha.

This was at Covent Garden in the summer of 2001. The guy was all wrapped in clingfilm!... it's weird what some people will do for laughs eh. But we did have fun there. Me and my husband, Chris, were asked to join in, no, not to be wrapped up in clingfilm. We were part of the pretend 'backstage' crew.

There has actually been Street Performers at Covent Garden Market since very early times, and no-one really knows when they first began? But Samuel Pepys recorded seeing Punch & Judy at the Market as early as 1662. Wow,so that's been going even longer than 'Mousetrap'!

Hey, I wonder if this bloke has ever seen the great Australian film 'Bad boy Bubby'? hahaha

Leicester Square

by phil_uk_net

This area is really the heart of 'Tourist London' and it's great fun just to wander around. In the Square itself you will see throngs of people - almost all tourists. You will also find some large cinemas where UK movie premiers are often shown. There are nightclubs too but I am told by people who know about such places that they are not very good. It's about 20 years since I had a night out at the Hippodrome.

The restaurants in this area are normally geared up for tourists and getting repeat business isn't a priority so they can be expensive and not very good.
From Leicester Square it is just a short walk to several other places of interest - The Haymarket and Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Chinatown, Soho, Covent Garden, etc.
The half price theatre ticket booth is located in the Square and there are several other ticketing agencies close by. My best memory is just walking around taking in the sights, sounds and smells of one of the greatest cities on earth.

Night on the tiles

by Superhans

Im rather unsure if it's done another way abroad but here goes. In very general terms people aim for the pub around 7pm. Lots of pubs close at around 11.30 or so, so your choice is; on to a club, if your up for more drinks and dancing ect. Or lots of people call it a day then and go to the keebab house or curry house both of which should be packed when the pubs close.
