London hotel near pubs

Jump to last reply

I'm going to London for four days in October with my husband and two of his soccer buddies (long story about how this came about). Last time in London, we stayed in Kensington and thought it was a great location. This time, I thought it would be nice to stay in a different area, just to have a different experience. But my husband doesn't like the idea. One of the things he liked about where we stayed was that there were pubs nearby (really, though, there were only three).

My sister suggested the area near the Liverpool Street Metro station. Husband was skeptical. One of his soccer buddies, who has never been to London, just wants to be near pubs. I would like to be near pubs too because I'll probably be heading back to the hotel earlier than they will.

All of which is a long way to ask this question: What would be a good area of central London for us? We'll be hitting a lot of the top tourist attractions, so that is a consideration, as is being close to a Metro station.

Thanks for your help!
