Apartments near Big Ben: An Unforgettable Stay in London

London is the capital of rock, and fashion. It is an incomparable historical centre, the home of British royalty, the most important financial centre in Europe and many more things. It is a city that every traveller should know, for any of these numerous reasons.
In the very centre of the capital of England is the most emblematic building in the city: the Big Ben. This is the nickname of the clock tower of the Palace of Westminster. This name originally referred only to its main bell, which weighs more than 13 tons and is almost three meters in diameter.
Designed in neo-Gothic style and completed in 1859, the tower is considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Its four-sided clock is the largest of its kind, plus it is the third tallest clock tower in the world. It is over one hundred and fifty years old. The tower is undergoing renovation since August 2017. Tourists can take a lift up to the highest point of the building.
Not only for the beauty and importance of this building, but also for its proximity to most of the main attractions of London, do not hesitate to rent an apartment near Big Ben to enjoy your stay in this city.

Places to visit near Big Ben

  • Westminster Abbey. This gothic church is not only the most important in England, but one of the most recognised ones in the world, as it is where the coronations and burials of the British monarchs are traditionally carried out. In addition numerous royal weddings have taken place throughout the history, including the marriage of Prince William with Kate Middleton in 2011.
  • Tate Britain. This museum is part of the well-known Tate network, along with the Tate Modern, the Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives. Of all of them, it is the oldest gallery, since it opened its doors in 1897. It is focused on British art, and stands out for its large size and its collection of paintings by William Turner.
  • London Eye. The "London Eye" is the famous Ferris wheel on the banks of the River Thames. With more than 130 meters of height and a diameter of 120 meters, it is one of the largest water wheels in the world and the largest in Europe. The view it offers is truly unique, making it an ideal visit for lovers of stunning landscapes.
  • National Gallery. If you love art history, a visit to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square is practically mandatory during your stay in London. This impressive free museum dates from 1824 and houses a collection of more than two thousand paintings.
  • St. James Park. On a sunny day, the best idea is to spend it in the open air, since the sun is not one of the attractions of London, but on the contrary it is a rarity. Near Big Ben you can quickly reach St. James Park. It is a green space of 23 hectares in the heart of the city. It has a lake with two islands, ducks, pelicans, fountains and a playground for children.

How to get to Big Ben

There are several important airports in London. From the largest, Heathrow Airport, you must take the underground train headed to Arnos Grove and make a change in Earl's Court, where you must take the District line to Upminster, and get off at Westminster. This trip will take about an hour. Another option from Heathrow is to take the Heathrow Express train, which is a bit more expensive than the underground, but faster. When you arrive at Paddington station, you must take the underground (Circle line in the direction of Victoria) and get off at Westminster.
From London City Airport you can take the DLR train to Bank and get off at Canning Town, where you must take the underground (Jubilee line to Stanmore) and get off at Westminster.
From Gatwick Airport you can take the Gatwick Express train, which will drop you off at Victoria station (from where you can take the underground), or the Southern or Thameslink lines (both reach London Bridge, from where you'll have to take the underground).
From Luton airport you must take the Thameslink train to West Hampstead station, where you can take the underground.

On the other hand, if you get to the city by train, it is very likely that you should depart from King's Cross station. From there you can take different underground combinations. The fastest is to take the Victoria line towards Brixton, get off at Green Park and take the Jubilee line towards West Ham and get off at Westminster.
