If you're looking at taking the children to London for a couple of days sightseeing, one of the hotels you might find of interest is the "Premier Inn Tower Bridge". We've recently taken our two children to our great capital, and chose the Premier Inn Tower Bridge to spend a night. This isn't our first overnight stop in London as a family; the last time we stayed at the "Premier Inn London Southwark (Tate Modern). So you see we're quite a fan of the Premier Inn, read our review of the Premier Inn Tower Bridge.
Why choose Premier Inn for an overnight stay in London? Well, there are several reasons we choose this particular national chain for our family London stays:
1) The four of us can stay in one room - and after numerous Premier Inn stays we know exactly what to expect from a Premier Inn room; no nasty surprises when we arrive.
2) The rooms are always clean, the beds big, and rooms comfy. We're not looking for a hotel with more facilities than you can shake a stick at - just a hotel which is clean and comfy; and that's exactly what Premier Inn delivers.
3) Children eat breakfast free - for each adult paying for breakfast, up to 2 children can eat free, That's a child up to 16. Our oldest is 13 and eats like a horse! So we can all eat enough calories to keep us going all day.
Whichever Premier Inn you choose, you'll get all the benefits I talked about: family bedrooms, clean rooms, children eat free. But the reason we chose Premier Inn Tower Bridge for this stay was because we were taking a trip up The Shard the following morning, and wanted a Premier Inn which was within an easy walk of The Shard. The photo above was taken out of our hotel window, and as you can see, we had a good view of The Shard; and other London landmarks, such as The Gherkin and the new "walkie-talkie" building. The Shard is, in fact, only a 10 minute walk from Premier Inn Tower Bridge.
The "Queen's Walk" which runs along the south bank of The Thames from Tower Bridge to Westminster Bridge is easily accessible from Premier Inn Tower Bridge too - and for those with children in tow, Queen's Walk makes a good place to amble along. A wide, traffic free, path taking in Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, The Millennium Bridge, Tate Modern, South Bank's unofficial skate park, and the Millennium Wheel.
Oh, and one last thing, the photo on the left shows the Premier Inn Tower Bridge from the top of The Shard! I've put an arrow on to highlight the Premier Inn Tower Bridge's position.
