Another budget London thread, with an emphasis on lodging.

Jump to last reply

My 19 y.o. son and I are in the early stages of research to figure out whether it's economically feasible for us to spend two or three days in London in June. I know that we can find plenty to see for little or no cost. And the beating the pound thread was very encouraging in terms of cheap eats. So my major concern at this point is lodging.

My husband and I visited London in June of '82. We stayed in a guest house/B&B in North London (Lady Margaret Road, Tufnell Park) that was recommended by a co-worker. And it worked out very well for us. It was near a tube stop so we had no problems with transportation. The people who ran it were lovely. The breakfasts were great. And we had some very nice conversations with fellow guests.

But that was 27 years ago! Is a B&B/guest house a little ways out of the thick of things still a good way for us to go? What could we reasonably expect to spend for a place comparable to the one where we stayed back then?

And can anyone recommend a similar place that they liked?

Thanks!
