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.

There should be a pouch on the inside of the room door above the door handle where you can leave the accommodation access card while you are in the room. This would ensure than you would see it before leaving the room, and would therefore be unlikely to leave the room without it.

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at College Hall, the room was clean & comfortable and the breakfast, which was included in the price was generous and good value. Overall a great place to stay.

(Revisione di College Hall, Bloomsbury, London)

The staff was very nice and helpful. The double room had no air-con, so it was a bit stifling in a hot day. But the staff kindly offered us a fan which made the room more pleasant.

(Revisione di Stay Club, Willesden, London)

Thank you very much, I was very happy with everything (standards, location was perfect for my needs,...) The room was spotlessly spartan and the staff very helpful. In the immortal words of Schwarzenegger, Ahnuld: "I vill be back!"

(Revisione di Wilson House, Paddington, London)

Left luggage in foyer of Beit Hall not securely managed. By having to get the cooked breakfast at the same time as the starter, the cooked breakfast is luke warm by the time it is eaten. This spoils an otherwise excellent breakfast.

(Revisione di Beit Hall, Hyde Park, London)

I found international house excellent value for money. The staff went out of their way to help me and were very friendly. They do not change bed linen daily but because I was staying for seven nights they offered to change mine. The kitchen facilities were excellent and the location is fantastic.

(Revisione di International House, Waterloo, London)

1)I suggest each room is given its own bath mat as the ones in the communal bathroom were not always clean. 2) Please leave instructions in the laundry room re. Use of washing machine & dryer! I really enjoy staying at Duchy House & the complimentary admission was a treat! Thank you!

(Revisione di Duchy House, Strand, London)

As well as being very conveniently located the room was clean, tidy, quiet and functional and well within our expectations for the price paid. The Staff were extremely accommodating and helpful and would certainly recommend the location

(Revisione di Wigram House, Westminster, London)

Excellent location, bus stop right outside as well as Baker St tube. Wide range of restaurants in walking distance. Incredible views from the 21st floor. You won't find better value for money in London. Bathroom small but functional.

(Revisione di Marylebone Hall, Marylebone, London)
