London Concert- looking for accommodation advice

Postby Franjel » Mon May 27, 2013 2:54 am

Just wondering if I could get some advice from Leonard's London fans. Having booked to go to the September London concert on a mad impulse, I then had to sell the idea of a weekend in London to my husband & 14 year old daughter ( to assuage my guilt at skiving off yet again for another Concert :oops: )
I will be going on my own to & from the concert and feel quite unnerved at the idea of walking around London alone at night. I would appreciate suggestions as to reasonable hotels/accommodation/B&B's that are located on/near the Jubilee line so I don't have far to walk when I get off the tube coming home from the concert. Also if it was central enough so my family can sightsee while I am at the concert.
Or if there was a hotel where there are a number of fans staying, that would be great also to know, and if I could tag along going to/from the concert, well that would be brilliant.
looking forward to hearing any suggestions.
Thanks
Franjel

Hello Franjel,
I'm going in June and I am staying at the St Giles in Central London http://centrallondon.stgiles.com/default.aspx?pg=hotel. I have stayed there before and it's fine. It will be a tube / DLR journey to get to the O2 but it shouldn't be a problem. The Hotel is very convenient for other thing like the British Museum etc.
I am getting very excited! I have also bought tickets for the 2 nights in Dublin!

Franjel, by the way I am also travelling alone, I am happy travelling around London so if you would like to meet up and travel to the Arena together that would be great.

Hi Franjel
I found the Travellodge London Central Southwark for the June concert - it is reasonably priced and is 5 stops away on the Jubilee line from North Greenwich and also well placed for access to central London. The hotel is also quite close to Southwark tube.

Hi Chris

Thanks again for the info

Whenever I travel over to the O2 London for a gig, I stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Greenwich
which is just at the top of the hill from the O2 - about 10-15 mins walk down before the gig and very handy
when it finishes with no hustle and bustle looking for transport across the river. It is not the cheapest but
you can't beat the convenience. If you fly into Gatwick get the train to London Bridge and the Jubilee
line stops right in front of the O2. I will be there this week for Leonard and the Moody Blues on
Saturday. ALso booked for the September gig ......
