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.

24 hour reception was unmanned on arrival. After 10 min someone showed up. I've no objection to them popping out for food but please put up a sign and mobile number.

The facilities were adequate though tired. The bathroom experience would have been significantly improved with a bath mat and a more functional shower. Unfortunatrly the “do not drink” sign above the basin seems inappropriate in a first world country - perhaps more clearly identifying that the hot water was not potable (as is most common in UK) or both were not.

We so enjoyed our stay. Staff helpful and friendly. Rooms immaculate and cosy. Convenient location. Reasonably priced. Overall hard to beat. More emotionally my grandfather was an Imperial College graduate and this was a lovely link to him too. So thanks for a brilliant time. John & Anne Bolitho

We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay thank you. We were there for the Last Night of the Proms and will certainly hope to stay there on future occasions.

I really appreciated being able to stay in such a safe and friendly place in the heart of London, and so close to the Underground. I am a senior travelling alone, and hotels are very expensive for people like me. This is my second stay here, and I would definitely stay again the next time I am in London. Many thanks!

Thank you for your great service. As some feedback, the maintenance and general/yearly cleaning processes could be improved. E.g. limescale in taps is not being cleaned properly. The carpets seem to need more often cleaning. The shelves are not wiped, so they are dusty.

Wigram hall is in a great location near Victoria Station. The staff were very helpful to me with some transportation planning. I had my own room and a shared bath and kitchen which were old but in good working order, quiet, and clean.

Very pleasant stay, so central to everything we wished to do. All in all I would book to stay again, with my husband. Excellent facilities and staff.

The deal represents tremendous value for money. The breakfast was great and the servers cheerful and helpful. The reception staff could learn a lot from them. the bed was fairly uncomfortable but was OK.
