Local area

The Museums

Three of London's largest museums can be found along Exhibition Road: the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, all of them offering free entry.

The Natural History Museum is one of London’s architectural treasures and is filled with wonders from the natural world. 
Don't miss: being greeted by Dippy the Dinosaur located in the entrance to the museum. From the Summer of 2017 you will instead be welcomed by an 82ft Blue Whale skeleton.

The Science Museum has many intriguing interactive exhibits for fun and learning for the whole family. 
Don't miss: visiting the Launchpad - hands-on science has never been more fun! 

The Victoria and Albert Museum is a haven for fans of art and design and is home to 3,000 years’ worth of amazing artefacts from many cultures. 
Don't miss: lunch in the courtyard. There's a fountain for the kids to paddle in while you can take in the stunning surrounding architecture.

Royal Albert Hall

Royal Albert Hall is one of the UK’s most loved and distinctive buildings, recognisable the world over. Each year it hosts more than 350 performances, including the BBC Proms. 

Hyde Park

Hyde Park is a vast Royal Park. Here you will find the Diana Memorial Fountain, the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine Lido, where on a hot day, keen swimmers bathe alongside the ducks. 


For absolutely fabulous luxury shopping, head for Harvey Nichols and Harrods in Knightsbridge. Oxford Street is also just a short bus journey away.


"Excellent stay. Clean and quiet. Safe and great location close to Paddington station and Hyde Park!" – Speedybooker

"The location is beautiful, very well situated and easy to find. Very close to bus stations and underground stations, which is really helpful for visitors. The room were spacious enough for my needs and very clean! The venue has everything you would need from/want from a hotel but with the charm of a residency or a town flat." – booking.com
