Gloucester Road Hotels - London

Mini guide to Gloucester Road

     

Within walking distance of South Kensington and Hyde Park lies Gloucester Road. Here, there is a lot to see and explore on foot and lots of cafés and restaurants to rest those weary feet!

Right next to Imperial College is the Science Museum, a fascinating and entertaining experience for children and adults. It is full of hands-on exhibits featuring everything from the industrial revolution to cutting-edge computers. The museum also has an IMAX theatre with daily shows.

The Royal College of Music's Museum of Instruments houses an internationally renowned collection of over 700 instruments and accessories from 1480 to the present.

The Brompton Oratory on Brompton Road was built in 1882 and the Renaissance style buildings feature a large Italian church with a spacious and richly appointed interior, the design of which follows that of the Gesu Church in Rome with a nave and side chapels instead of aisles.

Baden Powell House is a hostel for Scouts from all over the world. The exhibition here tells the life story of Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout and Guide movements. It describes the growth of scouting from its origins on Brownsea Island to a worldwide movement.

The Gloucester Road area is a perfect place to stay as it is within walking distance of South Kensington and Knightsbridge, the shopping and museum havens of London, and it also boasts easy access to the theatre district in the West End. There are many Victorian townhouses dotted around the area that have been converted into hotels and Bed and Breakfasts. Gloucester Road tube station is serviced by the Circle, District and Piccadilly lines.
