Youth Hostel in or near London

by MatthiasG

I'm planning to visit London in April 2010 with my son and I'm looking for a place to stay.

Has anyone been at Holland Park Youth Hostel? I would have preferred a hostel outside the city centre, but as they recently closed Hampstead Heath, Holland Park seems to be the only hostel with a bit of greenery.

Alternatively, has anyone stayed in a hostel just outside London? Lee Valley looks quite promising, 20min train to Liverpool Station.

I've not stayed there but the Lea Valley is a nice area with pleasant walking.

will tell you more. Note some places spell it Lee and some Lea but it is the same river and the same valley.

And yes central London is easily accessible by train as the hostel is in the same street as Cheshunt railway station. It's Liverpool STREET station you go to. If you asked for a ticket to Liverpool station you would be travelling to the city of name some 200 miles away.

Enjoy your trip.

Ah yes, thanks for pointing that out... wouldn't want to end up in Liverpool when I was hoping to go to Liverpool Street :-). And thanks for the links, Lea Valley looks like a really nice area with lots of things to do for me and the kid.

Now I hope for some reviews of YH Holland Park. Has anyone been there? If nobody wants to talk about this hostel, it's probably best avoided :-).

Can't wait for April!

I stayed there but well over 20 years ago, I thought the location was great but obviously the rest of my info is extremely outdated. Have a look at the next couple of links for some reviews

And here's another one in Earl's Court that seems to have good reviews, you won't find the greenery but certainly there are enough parks in London to satisfy you without having to stay inside one

I've stayed in the Holland Park youth hostel a few times over the past few years. I have been with a group and the group dorms are in the rather nice listed building that you see on the photographs. Smaller rooms are in the main 1970s style building. The location is great and in the centre of Holland Park you can spend some time in the park for your green fix. I don't think that there is any parking though. I found the hostel clean, the food good value, staff helpful, everything was fine really for us but as it was a group of 40 teenagers maybe not for everyone else staying there LOL. I suppose your choice depends on how close you want to be to the centre of London. The photos of Lea Valley look to have a much more 'out of town' feel compared to Holland Park so that would be a bonus but then again I think London has so many great parks that traveling out of the city would not appeal to me.

Travel Tips for London

Not exactly blue skies but......

by pipster

Its difficult to say one thing could be my most important activity while in London, but the visit to the London Eye certainly gave a birds eye view to this exciting city. Looking through the raindrops at Big Ben from the elevation was spectacular!

Horse Guard Parade

by LanaFromRiga

11am Monday-Saturday and 10am Sunday, the underground station Westminster
In a more accessible version of Buckingham Place’s Changing of the Guard, the mounted troopers of the Household Cavalry change guard here daily, at the official entrance to the royal palaces (opposite the Banqueting House). A lite-pomp version takes place at 4 pm when the dismounted guards are changed. Very, very beautiful and gracouis

Dragons

by Dabs

You'll see dragon statues all over London, I snapped the first two pics while on the Inns of Court walk with London Walks. The second photo is of the Dragon on top of the Temple Bar marker in front of the Royal Court of Justice. The third pic was taken somewhere near the Copthorne Tara Hotel in Kensington. The fourth pic was taken near the Holborn viaduct.

The City of London's coat of arms features two dragons holding a shield with the words Domine Dirige Nos, Latin for "Lord, guide us".

Tube Etiqutte No 5: Get your Ticket out

by Cham

When entering or exiting the tube... please make sure you have your ticket or oyster card ready to use. there are a lot of people going through the tube and the space is very cramped... if caught fumbling about in front of the ticket machine the chances are you'll get knocked down and stepped on. ok it's not that bad but it's still a good idea to get it ready beforehand.
