Hotel Overview:

Located on the Eastern border of central London is the world famous Hilton Waldorf Hotel London. The hotel is flanked by two internationally known theatres, the Aldwych theatre on its East side and the Strand theatre on its west side. Yards from Covent Garden and a short stroll from the area that has become known as London's theatreland. In reality the hotel is on the doorstep of the heart of London and the areas best known for an active nightlife. Covent Garden is always popular both by day and night. During the day there are a host of shops, restaurants, museums and of course at its heart the piazza a favourite venue for street entertainers (buskers). The piazza also has two bust markets. At night the area is buzzing with the many bars in and around Covent Garden. This is also where the Royal Opera House is located. A little further to the North (0.6 miles) finds Soho, now associated with the music industry and home to the more adult oriented nightlife to be found in London. Alongside Soho is Chintatown where you can enjoy the oriental geared shops and restaurants. The Waldorf Hilton hotels location at the end of the Strand makes its a good choice for convenient access into the City of London (the square mile) which is a straight run along Fleet Street and through St Paul's. Another short walk to the South brings you to the banks of the River Thames. Here you can enjoy walks along both sides of the river and stop for a drink at one of the many pubs with views over the river. Other nearby attractions include the Theatre Museum 0.1 miles, London Transport Museum 0.1 miles, Cleopatra's Needle (0.3 miles), Sir John Soames Museum (0.3 miles), South Bank centre and the Royal Festival Hall (0.4 miles), National gallery and Trafalgar Square (0.4 miles) and the London Eye (Millennium Wheel) (0.6 miles).
The hotel was built 1908 just 2 years after the construction of the Aldwych itself. Interestingly the road itself was constructed to allow easy access between Buckingham Place and The East End for King George VII. The Strand Theatre is yards from the hotel on the same road while across the road from the hotel is St Clement Dames Church, built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1679.
