Hotel Vicinity:Nearest: Tube Station: Gloucester Road 140 yards (128 metres), Railway Station: West Brompton 0.7 miles (1.1 km), Motorway: M4 Junction 1 4.1 miles (6.6 km). The Millennium Gloucester Hotel London is located just off from Gloucester Road in South Kensington. With tube stations close by (Gloucester Road almost opposite and 7 stations within 1 mile), the main A4 dual carriageway adjacent (which is the main road out of London and connecting directly to Heathrow Airport) and bus stops close by (74 and 49 nearest) the public transport links are excellent. Within a short distance are shopping areas such as Knightsbridge (including Harrods department store), Kings Road, Chelsea and South Kensington itself. This location would be considered very upmarket with many expensive residences within SW7. Particularly suited if your commuting via Heathrow as the nearby tube serves the airport, the A4 road just to the north of the hotel links with the airport and South Kensington is the first major central London area you hit when coming in from the airport. Earls Court would be just before SW7 but in terms of being closer to the centre and its far more touristy feel South Ken would be considered the start of the heart of central London for tourists. Other nearby attractions include Albert, Science and Natural History Museums (0.1 miles), Albert Memorial (0.3 miles), Serpentine gallery (0.4 miles), Royal Albert Hall (0.6 miles), Kensington Palace (0.7 miles), Buckingham Palace (1.4 miles) and Westminster cathedral (1.5 miles).
