University College London (UCL) offers visitors the ability to book cheap summer accommodation in their rooms located across London. The residences are situated throughout central London and are available to be booked by members of the public for use as casual visitor accommodation.
Home to Francis Gardner House and Langton Close, Bloomsbury is ideally located for the West End and all of the main attractions central London has to offer. The British Museum and British Library are only a stone’s throw away, as is Charlotte Street, one of London’s most popular eating destinations.
James Lighthill House can be found in Finsbury, close to the Business Design centre and Sadler’s Wells – a venue dedicated to international dance. St Pancreas International is also easily accessible from the area, and public transport links to areas such as South Kensington and the West End are second to none.
Goldsmid House can be found on Gillingham Street in Victoria, close to the West End, several of the famous London parks, and just a 10 minute walk from one of city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, Chelsea. The area has great transport links, with Victoria Station and coach station just around the corner, as well as great links to the Tube and bus networks.
Fitzrovia has no shortage of things to do, with a vast array of pubs, restaurants, galleries and shops on offer. The area doesn’t share the same fast pace as the West End, but is conveniently located close by. Ian Baker House can be found just off Tottenham Court Road and is close to Regent’s Park, an ideal place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle.
One of the more edgy areas of London, Camden Town is far from the prestige and royalty of Westminster, for example. This is not a bad thing, as the area is home to numerous pubs, music venues and street markets, creating an inviting atmosphere attractive to both visitors and Londoners. Max Rayne House and Ifor Evans Hall can both be found in this arty area of the city, and have convenient transport links close by.
This train-station neighbourhood is great for those who need easy access to Kings Cross station and St Pancreas International for a Eurostar to Paris and beyond. More public transport can be found within 100m than almost anywhere else in the world. John Dodgson House is a comfortable alternative to a cheap hotel in the area and perfect for those visiting on both business and pleasure.
This area is home to Euston station, the first inter-city railway station in London, opened in 1837. Schaffer Hall is another one of University College London’s residences which offers affordable visitor accommodation when the students are away, and the hall has easy access to the West End, Oxford Street and Regent’s Park.
