Waterloo Hotels - London

Mini guide to Waterloo

     

Apart from Waterloo station, the area hosts the South Bank of London has a lot to offer visitors of all ages, ranging from theatre (South Bank Centre), an aquarium and entertainment centre to the newly erected London Eye. Most sights here can be accessed via Waterloo or Westminster tube stations.

The huge BFI London Imax Cinema is located here, in an glass-enclosed cylinder seven storeys high. For kids, the London Aquarium is perfect, with hundreds of different fish and sea life from around the world - including a huge array of sharks!

Opened in 2000 in time for the millennium, the London Eye is the world's biggest ferris wheel. From here, 135 metres up, you have the best views of London, with each trip lasting 30 minutes. Tickets my be pre-booked online or by telephone, if you hope to score a ticket on the same day be prepared to queue from early hours.

County Hall is a palatial building that used to be the headquarters of London's administrative body, but is now owned by a Japanese consortium. It now houses one of the largest collections of interactive games and entertainment facilities in the country, run by the gaming company NAMCO. A children's heaven for the latest video games!

Once at County Hall, it may be fun to consider going on a London Duck Tour. This tour company departs from County Hall and uses amphibious craft to see the various landmarks of London.

Another imposing building on the South Bank is the Oxo Tower. The Oxo Tower Restaurant has great views of the Thames, especially at night and is wonderful for a romantic night out. Although prices aren't cheap, it is well worth a visit. It's a pleasant stroll along the waterfront promenade passed the lively Gabriels Wharf entertainment area. Also here is the Museum of Moving Images.

This area can be accessed via Waterloo station, which is serviced by the Northern, Jubilee, and Bakerloo lines. Waterloo station is also one of the busiest railway stations in London and services many destinations Southwest of London. It is also the terminal for the Eurostar train to France.
