It was wonderful thank you for your very kind hospitality. We had travelled all the way from New Zealand arriving on a wet sunday afternoon to your warm welome. It was so convenient being able to dine at the Union Bar. Great pizzas and chilli beef stuffed potatoes. Being next to the Royal Albert Hall was a bonus,we enjoyed the Proms. Cheers from DownUnder.

Paper bath mats not always replaced. My friend slipped on her mat & went flying. She's badly bruised. Could have been much worse!! Difficult to fill kettle as the tap water not drinkable. No other source available on our floor. However the halls are v good value. We shall return.

Being busy, the desk didn't volunteer any information about internet and breakfast venue etc. They were happy to help when I kept asking but it would have useful for them to supply it! Awesome cleaners...

(Revisione di Marylebone Hall, Marylebone, London)

My original room overlooking the main road had to be changed as the basin wasn't working, this was annoying as it was late & I was tired. However I was relocated to a room at the back which was quiet and I slept very well.

(Revisione di Hashtag Pop Up Hotels, Shepherd's Bush)

Lovely reception staff who were very inviting. Amazing central location. Room and other facilities very clean. Good facilities overall, and incredible at this price bracket. WiFi extremely slow. Normally a quiet location but was spoiled on one occasion by an extremely loud party on the ground floor, but this was stopped at 23:00 presumably by staff.

(Revisione di Ian Baker House, Fitzrovia, London)

The room itself was great as was the location. Also very good value. The reason why I've scored the room as average is that the toilet and showers were quite a long way away.

(Revisione di Astor College, Fitzrovia, London)

Everything worked and I had a lovely quiet view of the square from my window. I'd stay again if that room were available! Not sure how good it would be if the building was full, but it was fairly empty so I found it a very enjoyable stay.

(Revisione di Evelyn Gardens, Chelsea, London)

Facilities at Spring Garden were as ever excellent. Only disappointment was that I was not able to purchase breakfast in the refectory unless I had booked it (I didn't know this when booking).

(Revisione di Prince's Gardens, Hyde Park, London)

Room, kitchen and bathroom great. The noise outside however was awful, which is expected from the area I was in. Downside was the room was too warm so the window had to be kept open at night and therefore I was woken up several times by noise.

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 delighful 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 and Hamley’s.

London University accommodation

London is home to several universities, all of which we will hope to be working with shortly. UCL (University College London) and the University of London are the first on our website. 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 Londra

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 the city 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 up to 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 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 where the worst 1940s and 1950s architecture was used, much 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 London's Universities

University College London

UCL was founded in 1826 and is the third oldest English university, and the first university institution to be founded in London. This was the first British university to admit students regardless of their religion and gender. At that time, the only universities in England were those at Oxford and Cambridge, which were restricted to members of the Church of England. It introduced new subjects which had not previously been taught in English universities, for instance modern foreign languages, English language and literature as well as engineering and architecture. UCL later introduced the first teaching laboratories for chemistry and physics.

The University of London

The University of London was first established by a Royal Charter in 1836, which brought together in federation London University (now University College London) and King's College (now King's College London). Today the University is a federal university made up of 31 affiliates: 19 separate university institutions, and 12 research institutes. As such, the University of London is the largest university in the UK by number of full-time students, with 135,090 campus-based students.

Queen Mary, University of London

Queen Mary has its roots in four historic colleges: Queen Mary College, Westfield College, St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College and the London Hospital Medical College.

The Mile End campus is historically the home of Queen Mary College, which began life in 1887 as the People's Palace, a philanthropic endeavour to provide east Londoners with education and social activities. It was admitted to the University of London in 1915.

Westfield College was founded in 1882 as a pioneering college for the higher education of women, and was granted its Royal Charter in 1932. In 1995, Queen Mary and Westfield merged with two distinguished medical colleges, St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College, established in 1843, and the London Hospital Medical College, England's first medical school, founded in 1785.
