If you’re looking to transport yourself around London, experiencing everything it has to offer, then where should you book your stay? We believe Piccadilly, with its assortment of luxury hotels, is arguably the best spot to settle yourself in. And that’s the case whether you’re just planning on stay a couple of days in the city, or for a week or longer.
Interestingly, the London Underground network is the oldest transportation system, first being built in the late 1800s. To this day, it continues to be one of the best representations of a first class train service in Europe. In fact, few other cities can claim to boat such a train network. The TFL continues to invest into making the train service more reliable every year – and this is something that has to be done.
Every year, more and more tourists are visiting the city, and the population is expected to rise by more than a million over the next couple of years. Naturally, the city has had to build and maintain the necessary infrastructure to support the city’s mobile population. The iconic London Red Buses will take you to relatively distant locations, but it’s the Underground that will allow you to explore the edges of the city.
Then again, you won’t need to do as much travelling as you think if you stay in Piccadilly’s West End. All within walking distance, you’ll find Hyde Park, Oxford Street, Regents Park, Leicester Square, and Covent Garden. And if you want to expedite the process, then you can take one of the many buses, and cut your journey in half.
For all the merits of the London Underground system, you ideally want to spend as little time commuting as possible. Staying in Piccadilly breaks you away from having to use the Underground, because a lot of what’s on offer in this city, will be accessible by bus or by short and long walks. So take advantage, and experience the city with unbridled freedom this winter. There’s never been a better time to visit the city.
