Are you looking for a hotel in London but finding that high prices and lack of availability are two recurring issues? Well, then there could be an alternative. While plenty of people feel that staying in Central London is their only option, a growing number of travellers are opting for hotels in Herts. By staying in Hertfordshire you can expect to get much more for your money, and thanks to great transport links, you can be in the capital in no time at all. Here’s why you should consider a hotel in the county for your next trip.
Great transport links
Hertfordshire is the ideal base for those wanting to travel into the capital. A wealth of road links mean that you can drive into the city at your convenience. You are also much more likely to be able to find a safe place to leave your car overnight if you stay just outside of Central London, such is the parking problem in the capital. Travelling by train is easy too, with many direct lines to London available at most stations. So while you are just outside of London, getting there will be no problem.
More for your money
Hertfordshire hotels are much better value for money. Anyone who has tried to book a break in a London hotel will know that the prices can be astronomical. By expanding your search area that little bit further north, you’ll be able to save a lot of money. So you could splash out on a suite instead of a room, or treat yourself and a loved one to an afternoon tea as part of your stay. With that little bit of extra cash in your pocket, you will be able to create some very special memories without sacrificing on being able to reach Central London quickly.
Exploring the area
Staying just outside London will give you the opportunity to explore areas not frequented by as many tourists. The famous attractions of the capital are breathtaking, but sometimes its nice to get away from the packed Tube trains and endless queues. Hertfordshire boasts many tourist attractions, including the phenomenally popular Harry Potter Studio Tour (be sure to book ahead for that one!). Other famous landmarks include Hatfield House, St. Albans Cathedral, the Verulamium Museum and Knebworth House. So why not see what there is to do where you are staying, and plan a day out away from the hustle and bustle of the city?
