Accommodation for Tourists

London is one of the most international cities in the world, and among the major hubs of tourism in the world because of its culture, its unique blend of traditionalism and modernism, and the numerous famed tourist attractions that lie within it. The fact of being the world's most-visited city and having the world's largest city airport system contributes can assert this fact.

The capital of the United Kingdom, famous for being situated on the River Thames, has been a major settlement for two millennia, back to the time when Romans founded it as Londinium. Interestingly, the most notable attractions of London are situated quite near the Thames. These include, but are not limited to, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Eye, the Shard, the British Museum, the Natural History Museum and so on.

Big Ben is the nickname given to the clock tower at the end of the Palace of Westminster, and has come to be the identifying symbol of London. The London Eye, which some believe to be the new modern symbol representing the modern era of London, is a giant Ferris wheel located on the edge river.

Buckingham Palace is the residence and principal workplace of the monarchy of the United Kingdom. Very nearby is the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament) which is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, which make up the parliament of the United Kingdom. And just to the west of that palace is Westminster Abbey, which has been the traditional place of British monarch coronations and burial site of the most important British people.

The Tower of London, which sits on the edge of London’s ancient core, the City of London (also known as the Square Mile) is a historic castle which has had many changes in its use and what it represents throughout time, thus having a deep impact on English history. Very close is Tower Bridge and then London Bridge, two of the bridges that span the Thames and are among London’s iconic symbols. Another worldly renowned attraction in the City is the Anglican cathedral of St. Paul’s.

With all the most famous sites of London so near the river, it’s obvious the best place for any tourist to stay would be an accommodation located around the banks of the Thames, in the centre of London. Such a location can be provided by The Bridge Hotel, where its excellent spot on the map of London on Borough Street, just below London Bridge, the Shard and the City of London, can make the stay of all visitors from around the globe much more pleasurable.
