Affordable London Hotel

Jump to last reply

Three family members (two adults and a teen) are planning to travel to London and Paris next May--approx four days in London, four in Paris. I'm doing research for a historical series set in Tudor/Puritan times and want to get a feel for what Tudor London would have been like. I also need to visit central Dartford for a day. Would also like to visit the Tower and and any museum/sites that would represent the time period between about 1520 and 1630. I would love to see anything that would help me formulate a picture of life in those times, while still having it be fun for my family.

SO, the question is, what area is best around London to stay in for these purposes? We don't want to rent a car so it needs to be close to transportation that will get us there from Heathrow, get us to Dartford, to the Tower, and to Paris on the Eurostar. We also need something somewhat budget-friendly ($100 a night or so) in a safe, clean part of town. Any help any one can provide would be most appreciated, as none of us has ever been to London. I don't know where to start.

I did live in France for 16 months in the '80s, with several months in the Paris area. I'll need a memory refresher for there as well, but one thing at a time. :o)
