The Travelodge London Central Bank enjoys a great location for the City of London being almost adjacent to the Cannon Street Station with connections for most the overground and the underground systems. The hotel sits in a small side street. This is one of the major stations serving London with connections to all over the UK. Only slightly further away is Bank Station where you can connect with the DLR system for the Docklands/Canary Wharf area and several tube lines. If you are heading off to or from Stansted Airport then you can catch the Stansted Express from Liverpool Street Station which is a 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Indeed within half a mile are no less than 10 train stations so transport links can rightly be rated as excellent as you are also served by several bus routes. While clearly a great choice for true budget options close to the City of London, the main business and financial district, it is also well placed for combining with a sightseeing visit. Just 300 yards (274 metres) from the banks of the River Thames (and its river bus service) which offers dedicated walking areas and many bars and restaurants dotted along its banks. While there are quite a lot of stores, shops, bars and restaurants close to the hotel many do shut over the weekend when the area is much quieter. Within 0.6 miles (1.0 km) of the Travelodge Central Bank is the Bank of England Museum, Monument, Clink Prison Museum, Golden Hinde Replica Ship, Vinopolis City of Wine, Southwark Cathedral, Shakespeares Globe, London Dungeon, St Pauls Cathedral, Royal Armouries and Fusiliers Museum, Museum of London, Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum, HMS Belfast, Barbican, Tate Modern and The Tower of London. You should still note that the hotel is to the east of the main central areas and West End, which is 2 miles (3.2 km) away.
