Fantastic location for the tube system with no less than 7 The Premier Inn Blackfriars Situated just off of Fleet Street between the City of London (the main business district) and Londons West End and theatre land. Fleet Street was once synonymous with the newspaper industry but those buildings have long since relocated to other areas. Today the area is a mix of office buildings, legal buildings and with a good range of shops, bars and restaurants. Your just a half miles walk from the major tourists areas such as Covent Garden and the heart of the theatre scene. There are 22 theatres within a mile of the hotel and many more only slightly further away. Bars, clubs, restaurants and shops are simply too numerous to count and name. Only 300 yards from Blackfriars bridge giving easy access to the south side of the River Thames and the beginning of the south bank complex which houses attractions such as the National Theatre and the London Eye. 6 stations within half a mile, the closest being Blackfriars (2 minutes walk) on the Circle and District line and just 200 yards from the hotel. 0.3 miles from the major attraction of St Pauls Cathedral. Dorset Rise (the road the Premier Inn Blackfriars sits on) is actually a relatively quiet side street giving something of a calm feel to the very busy area that surrounds it. Another plus is being so close to the River Thames means you have easy access to the frequent river bus services that stop at The Riverwalk Pier and Blackfriars Pier.
