In the heart of central London, the H10 London Waterloo scores a perfect 10 when it comes to accessing the city’s most iconic sights and attractions. It’s located close to London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and Trafalgar Square.
On top of the attractions in your immediate area, a five minute walk to Waterloo Station gives you access to everything London has to offer. Waterloo is Britain’s largest and busiest train station. Originally built in 1848, this is an attraction in its own right, however also links you to the rest of London.

London can be rather expensive when it comes to food, though this problem is solved with the package deal from Luxury Escapes; complimentary daily buffet breakfasts and two three-course dinners for two in H10’s Three O Two Restaurant.

Yes you can take a cruise on the Thames, but our recommendation is to opt for a bit more adventure by taking an exciting kayak tour which will give you a whole new perspective on the city.
With a variety of tours available which suit all types of people, you are assured to have a wonderful lasting memory.
Take in a West End Show
No trip to London is complete without seeing a West End musical. See a classic like Les Miserables or Phantom of the Opera or go for something newer like Aladdin or Dreamgirls.
Climb the Monument
Test your fitness by climbing the 311 steps to the top of The Monument to the Great Fire of London, which commemorates the 1666 Great Fire of London which claimed the homes of 70,000 of the City’s 80,000 inhabitants.
Tour the Tower of London
It is of course one of London’s most iconic landmarks, but did you know you can have exclusive after-hours access via a twilight tour? You can also enjoy a Medieval Christmas complete with King Richard III, knights, and jesters.
