An introduction to London

London is the capital of the United Kingdom and the largest city in the European Union. It is one of the foremost financial and cultural centres in the world. London's influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion and the arts contributes to its preeminent position. The city will host the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

London has enough variety and substance to satisfy the most energetic tourist. It contains four World Heritage Sites: the Tower of London; the historic settlement of Greenwich; the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; and the site comprising the Palace of Westminster, and Westminster Abbey. A visit to Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, and Hampton Court should also be considered.

A visit to London is not complete without enjoying some of its many beautiful green spaces including The Royal Parks of Hyde Park, its neighbour Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park (housing London Zoo), the smaller Green Park or the delightful St. James's Park, surrounded by palaces and goverment buildings.

Whilst a little shabby at times, the entertainment district of the West End has its focus around Leicester Square, where London and world film premieres are held, and Piccadilly Circus, with its giant electronic advertisements. London's theatre district is here, as are many cinemas, bars, clubs and restaurants, including the city's Chinatown district, and just to the east is Covent Garden, an area housing speciality shops and an abundance of street theatre.

The United Kingdom's Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Royal Opera and English National Opera are based in London and perform at the Royal Opera House, The London Coliseum, Sadler's Wells Theatre and the Royal Albert Hall as well as touring the country. Whilst horribly over-crowded, Europe's busiest shopping area is Oxford Street, a shopping street nearly 1 mile (1.6 km) long — which makes it the longest shopping street in the world — and home to many shops and department stores including Selfridges.

London University accommodation

London is home to several universities, all of which we hope to be working with shortly. We currently offer Bed & Breakfast accommodation at UCL (University College London), the University of London, Imperial College London, Kingston University and Brunel University. It should be understood that the university halls are designed primarily for students: not children or for adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the halls do meet level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

Getting around London

If you are spending more than a couple of days in the city, we would recommend purchasing an Oyster card which gives you access to all underground trains and buses. See http://www.tfl.gov.uk for more information.
 

La storia di Greater London

A short history of London

The first major settlement was founded by the Romans in 43 AD as Londinium, following the Roman conquest of Britain. Following a storming by the Iceni tribe led by Queen Boudica in 61AD, the city was rebuilt and prospered, superceding Colchester as the capital of the Roman province of Britannia in 100 AD. At its height in the 2nd century, Roman London had a population of around 60,000.

By the 600s, the Anglo-Saxons had created a new settlement called Lundenwic, approximately 900 metres upstream from the old Roman city, around what is now Covent Garden. It is likely that there was a harbour at the mouth of the River Fleet for fishing and trading, and this trading grew until the city was overcome by the Vikings and forced to relocate back to the location of the Roman Londinium to use its walls for protection. The original Saxon city of Lundenwic became Ealdwic ("old city"), a name surviving to the present day as Aldwych, which is in the modern City of Westminster.

Plague caused extensive problems for London in the early 17th century, culminating in the Great Plague in 1665–1666 that killed around 100,000 people, up to a fifth of London's population. This was the last major outbreak in England, possibly thanks to the disastrous fire of 1666. The Great Fire of London broke out in the original City and quickly swept through London's wooden buildings, destroying large swathes of the city. Rebuilding took over ten years, largely under the direction of a Commission appointed by King Charles II, chaired by Sir Christopher Wren.

Much of London was then destroyed during the bombing campaign of World War II, which saw 30,000 people lose their lives. Despite causing a great deal of damage, the city was generally well patched up and much of the worst of 1940s and 1950s architecture has been replaced by more modern and tasteful buildings.

In the 18th century, Samuel Johnson, author of A Dictionary of the English Language, famously wrote about the city: “You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."

History of Greater London's Universities

Kingston University

Kingston University's origins can be traced back to 1839 when four residents established a Kingston Literacy and Scientific Institute to provide young men with evening classes. Later, a well-to-do surgeon called George Taylor set up an Institute at the corner of Thames and Clarence streets, in a fine neo-classical building, which housed a library, laboratory and lecture hall.

Brunel University

When Brunel University was founded in 1928, its original purpose was to provide recruits for local industry and early statistics collected by HM Inspectors show that between 1929 and 1933, 90 per cent of boys leaving the school found employment in the engineering and building trades. This was to be a well-founded precedent to the unparalleled graduate employment record Brunel enjoys today.

The one comment I have is to update the directions via bus. The ones that were provided with my reservation had you get off at Kingston Station and walk to the university from there. Surbition Station is much closer to you and when guests are carrying baggage the walk from Kingston is hard.

Wish I could move in sooner and stay a bit longer, as I work at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show from 17/06 to 18/07. Could this be arranged at all or not or who would I need to speak to? Thank You

The porters were extremely friendly and helpful. The shower was cold my first day, and the pillow and comforter were not very comfortable, but otherwise, I was satisfied with the room.

The only problem we had was with us needing varying amount of rooms for different nights we had to make four separate bookings for the week which was a little confusing however it all worked ok in the end.

Seething Wells is well provided . One thing that needs to be attended to is the Water. It leaves a residue when I have boiled it. The Kitchen cabinets need to be changed as the wood is worn out and the hinges cant hold them well.

Daytime staff are lovely and helpful. I spent the past year living there as a student, and then stayed over summer. I'll miss Clayhill. Well worth the stay either as a term time student, or if you're just stuck for somewhere to stay over summer. Thanks for everything Clayhill, Josh.

The place was great value for money and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The internet connection was great (I liked its being "regular" as opposed to WiFi). Maybe I would add some soap to the bathroom because that's the one thing I am used to finding in the room when travelling and didn't bring with me... All in all I was very happy with my choice.

I was told that I would have Internet access which is vital to my job role as I have to work a lot from home during the evenings. It took 8 days for me to get access which resulted in a £121 mobile phone bill, as I went over my alloted minutes when arranging with Kingston university. Other than this the room was good value for money.

Very good as always, a bit noisy in the early hours but the only thing not yo like are the towels, like trying to dry yourself with a sheet. Staff great
