The Novotel Tower Bridge London Hotel is located on the south eastern edge of London's financial heartland, the City of London and sometimes referred to as the square mile. This area is actually close to Aldgate and is just 200 yards from one of London's most visited attractions, the Tower of London. An impressive sight standing by the banks of the river Thames and with centuries of history within its walls. The hotel is also very well suited for access out to the Docklands and Canary Wharf areas (around 2 miles ) thanks to the close by road links of the A1203 and A1261. Just 2 minutes walk to the nearest tube station. This part of London will be quiet on weekends compared to the main night life areas around the West End (W1, WC2 postcodes) but there are still local shops and bars that will be open. Well worth a visit is St Katherine Docks which is opposite the tower of London and around 1/3rd of a mile from the hotel. This is a yacht haven with its own shops, bars and restaurants. Other local places of interest include Royal Armouries and fusiliers Museum (0.1 miles), Monument (0.3 miles), the 400 year old Petticoat Lane Market (0.4 miles), HMS Belfast (0.4 miles), Whitechapel Art Gallery (0.5 miles) and the London Dungeon (0.5 miles).
