London hotel near Charing Cross tube station

Charing Cross tube station is in Zone 1 and is reached by the Northern and Bakerloo lines. The station platforms on the Northern Line section are decorated with an interesting and unusual mural depicting the building of the original Charing Cross which was a memorial to Edward 1's wife Eleanor of Castile, constructed at the end of the 13th Century.

A London hotel near Charing Cross tube is the 5 star Hampshire Hotel in Leicester Square. Also, just to the east and only a 4 or 5 minute walk is the 3 star Strand Palace Hotel

Situated within Charing Cross train station where main line overground trains depart for the Kent coast and other destinations in southern England, it lies within walking distance of several central London landmarks including Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and The Strand.

Trafalgar Square's most well known feature, the almost 180 feet high Nelson's Column pays tribute to Admiral Horatio Nelson who was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, from where the square gets its name.

Other buildings of note in the square are the National Gallery and St Martin-In-The-Fields Church, whilst at the other end of the square lies Admiralty Arch which forms the entrance to The Mall, a grand tree lined avenue leading to Buckingham Palace and the scene of many state processions involving the Royal Family over the years.

Trafalgar Square also regularly plays host to political demonstrations and rallies which happen in London and draw large crowds. These events are viewed favourably by the authorities who regard them as a showpiece for democracy in Britain.

A number of West End theatres are located either on or close to The Strand including the Adelphi (409-412 Strand), The Savoy Theatre (Savoy Court, The Strand) and The Vaudeville (404 Strand).

Other well known streets near Charing Cross tube are New Scotland Yard, more commonly known simply as Scotland Yard, the famous headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police, and at one intersection of Trafalgar Square, the entrance to Whitehall, where many government departments are located including Downing Street where British prime ministers reside at number 10 whilst in office.

The Cenotaph, scene of memorial parades for the British armed forces is also located on Whitehall, as is Horseguards Parade where tourists can watch the highly theatrical "changing of the guards" at 11.00 am each day.

The Strand has some fine top class restaurants including Simpsons for British cuisine (100 Strand), Smollensky's for modern American cuisine (105 Strand) and the Strand Palace Hotel which has 2 restaurants - the Strand Carvery serving traditional British style plus Johnston's Brasserie for a range of international style food (372 Strand).
