Euston Hotels - London

Mini guide to Euston

     

Euston, the first railway station built in London, and Kings Cross station make up a major transport interchange in the north London area. Within a few blocks are the upmarket areas of Bloomsbury and Regents and Argyle Square which all have clusters of good hotels.

The Charles Dickens House Museum is located in 48 Doughty Street, a house that was inhabited by Charles Dickens and his family for two years from 1837. The library here holds many rare and unique items such as Dickens' letters and news cuttings. Access is via Russell Square tube station.

Hidden off the beaten track is the Percival David Foundation, home to over 2,000 Chinese ceramics and one of the largest collections outside China. The collection is part of the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). In fact, SOAS has other exhibits as well, such as the Brunei Gallery, which are also worth a visit.

For something different, visit the Cartoon Art Trust Museum, Britain's only museum dedicated to cartoons and humorous art. The museum has regular exhibitions, events and cartoon classes.

The British Library is located east of the station and houses some of the world's most famous written and printed documents, including the Magna Carta, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Codex Sinaiticus. Also nearby is the Wellcome Trust, one of the world's richest charities. Apart from their financial contributions to medical research, they also host a library and exhibitions, which are open to the public.

Very conveniently located, Euston station services the Westcoast Mainline, with trains to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. Kings Cross station, which is only a few minutes walk away, services the Northeast, including Cambridge, York, Durham, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Euston and Kings Cross are also major interchanges for the tube with the Piccadilly, Northern, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, and Circle Lines converging here.
