If it’s your first time staying in London, your options for where to stay can seem quite overwhelming. Today we’re going to share some of our favourite areas to stay in London, all of which will put you close to the main tourist attractions and places you’ll want to see while visiting the city for the first time.

What Area of London is Best for Tourists to Stay?

When it comes to choosing the best area to stay in within London, this is a very subjective question based on what you want to do and your personal interests for your visit. That being said, we recommend choosing a centrally-located area where you will have good connections by tube in order to see everything you would like to do in the city. Hatton Garden, Farringdon, and London Liverpool Street are great examples of areas that you could stay in if you are looking to see a range of the top tourist attractions in London. You’ll be able to take the tube to anywhere in the city thanks to the central location of our Great St Helen Hotel and Hatton Garden Hotel.

The Top Locations to Stay in London for First-Time Visitors

If you don’t have any preference for where you are looking to spend most of your time in London, these are a few of the best areas to stay in for good transportation connections and plenty of things to do and places to eat.

Kings Cross London

For visitors to London who are travelling here by train or carrying their adventure on by Eurostar, you can’t go wrong by choosing to stay in London St. Pancras or Kings Cross. Our Mabledon Court Hotel is located near to this major transportation hub. Over the past decade, this area has been completely transformed, so you’ll find endless options for dining here too in the evenings.


Farringdon is another area that has become more popular with tourists over the past few years. It’s very easy to walk to many of the city’s major attractions from here, allowing you to see and do all that you’ve planned in London. Our Hatton Garden Hotel is a centrally-located London hotel which offers you all of the facilities you could need to enjoy a relaxing stay in the city.

London Liverpool Street

Liverpool Street Station is one of the city’s busiest stations, offering you great connections throughout the city and elsewhere in the UK. Many visitors to London are also looking to explore further away, experiencing everything that the UK has to offer to tourists. When you stay at our Great St Helen Hotel, you’ll be just a short distance away from the station and the fantastic dining and drinking options in this area.

These are just a few of our favourite areas for first-time visitors to London to stay in. We also have a variety of hotels in the Bloomsbury area, which is another part of London that’s perfect for first timers.
