Earls Court Hotels - London

Mini guide to Earls Court

     

As well as becoming a popular hotel area, Earls Court is well known for its modern exhibition centres - Earls Court Exhibition Centre and Olympia Exhibition Centre. Both centres host an array of events from rock concerts, industrial exhibitions and festivals to extravaganzas such as Disney on Ice. In the surrounding streets there are many bars and restaurants offering a variety of cuisines; look for places on Fulham Broadway, Gloucester and Cromwell Roads, as well as High Street Kensington.

Formerly nicknamed Kangaroo Valley, because of its popularity with young Australian adults living in London during the 70s and 80s, its moved up a notch and you're more likely to spot Japanese tourists dragging their suitcases around.

Just off High Street Kensington lies Leighton House Museum, the former studio-house of the famous Victorian artist Lord Frederic Leighton. A must visit for anyone with an interest in Victorian architecture and art, it is one of the most extraordinary buildings of the 19th century, with beautiful interiors and paintings - the Arab Hall is just breathtaking.

Linley Sambourne House was the home of Edward Linley Sambourne, a Punch cartoonist of the late Victorian and Edwardian period. The house is a well-preserved Victorian town house, with original wall decoration, fixtures and many of Sambourne's original pictures. Tours are normally led by actors in period costume and take place at set times on weekends and only by prior booking on weekdays.

Another great outdoor attraction is Fulham Palace, the historic residence of the Bishop of London. This palace boasts an interesting mix of architectural styles from Tudor to Victorian and is said to have the longest moat in England. The gardens here are famous for their rare imported plants. Access is via Putney Bridge tube station.

The area remains a lively area full of pubs and restaurants and is close to the trendy West London suburbs of Kensington and Bayswater.

Earls Court can be reached via various tube stations: Earls Court (Piccadilly and District Lines), High Street Kensington (Circle and District Lines), and Olympia/Kensington (District Line). It is a gateway both to Central London and the Wimbledon area, easily reached via the District Line.
