Hotel north of London - suggestions please

by velectro

Hi all

I need to drive to London soon, but don't want to drive into central London - thinking of stopping somewhere just outside of the M25 and getting the train in. My thoughts are the Hemel Hempstead/St Albans area.

Anyone have any suggestions - preferably a hotel within walking distance of a train station.

Thanks everyone.

Don't know where you're driving from, but if you can access the A1 then Letchworth might be ideal.

Only one hotel in the town centre, 1 minute from the station (about 30 mins to London I think). Perfectly ok, adequate parking (and also in Letchworth itself).

I have a review on my Letchworth page.

I've stayed here before for one night...

Check it out on the map, it might help you, depending on what train line you need to be on, also inside M25 (just) so slightly cheaper train fare.

Are you spending the night at the hotel, or just need a place to park for the day?

Hemel isn't the nicest of places to stay - Berhamsted - the stop before it (on the train) is very nice and the train station is right in town. Train will take you about 353 minutes from there into Euston :-)

This is probably too far south for you, but I have stayed several times at the Thames Lodge in Staines. It's a nice place, right on the Thames, very close to a large shopping center area (and an indoor mall) with plenty of restaurants and a pedestrian-only mini-High Street (I think the actual High Street is a couple of blocks away). The train station in Staines is about a kilometer away down a residential street (yes, I've walked it), and the frequent trains from Staines go to Victoria Station.

There is some hotel parking, but it can overflow, but there is a large municipal lot practically next door.

Staines is just south of Heathrow (why I think it may be too far south for you), but very easy to get to off the M25 and well connected to the City center by direct trains...also, within sight of the hotel next to the indoor mall, there is a bus terminal...from here there are buses (National Express? I don't know) that go to Heathrow, London, and various places...

another option if you just want to crash somewhere for the night is the Days Inn/Premier Inn place at South Mimms service station on the M25/A1 then you could drive and park up at Potters Bar station with a really good fast link in to kings Cross. Alternatively, there are motels around Watford Junction which is a really good link to Euston (very quick) on the overground and good access from the M1.
the St Albans Thameslink line is good but I did hear that some it had been shut off in central london so you'd need to make sure you can get to your destination without having too many tube changes. I've never stayed overnight in St A but it's a lovely town, I'm sure there must be places to stay near the station.

Travel Tips for London

The Changing of the Guard

by basbed23

The changing of the guard is one of Britain's oldest ceremonies. This ritual takes place everyother day (weather permitting). The entire ceremony takes over an hour to complete and most of the action happens towards the end. When I was there, the changing of the guard ceremony started at 11:00AM in front of Buckingham Palace.

Big Ben

by dvideira

Big Ben, well.. Big Ben is one of London's best-known landmarks, and looks most spectacular at night when the clock faces are illuminated..

The name Big Ben actually refers not to the clock-tower itself , but to the thirteen ton bell hung within. The bell was named after the first commissioner of works, Sir Benjamin Hall.

London Tip

by Krystynn

That's me taking a much-needed respite here at the sprawling grounds of the TOWER OF LONDON.... Do give yourself lots of time to just wander around the massive grounds.... P.S. The cannon behind me sure looks interesting!

Tower of London - Water Lane

by kris-t

Water Lane was created by Edward I's expansion of the Tower in 1275-85 when the whole of the Outer Ward along the south was reclaimed from the river and a towered curtain wall constructed along the foreshore of the Thames. Before this time all the towers on the inner curtain wall stood on the river's edge, hence the name Water Lane

Don't be put off by the long...

by ichi

Don't be put off by the long faces initially encountered (if you do), you're sure to meet some people that warm up with useful information, even if their faces & body language don't seem to be all that enthusiastic.
