Search for cheap hotels near Drury Lane

Marking the eastern boundary of Covent Garden, Drury Lane, London is one of the citys most famous streets. It has been a London street for hundreds of years, since at least the reign of Elizabeth I, and has taken up a place in popular imagery, although it does not offer a huge amount that is of interest to the tourist apart form the Theatre Royal, it is easy to drink in an historic atmosphere there.

 

The nearest tube is Covent Garden, on the Piccadilly Line, but it is also just an easy walk from Temple, Holborn, or Charing Cross. Depending on which end of Drury Lane you want to get on to, you can get buses to Aldwych and the Strand in the south, or High Holborn in the north. The lane is also well within walking distance if you are on the north bank of the Thames, or have been exploring the West End, Covent Garden, or Bloomsbury.

 

Being so central, there are many exciting things to do and see near Drury Lane, even if very few of them are on the lane itself. Covent Garden market is just around the corner with its bustle, shops and bars, as is Covent Garden Opera House. Many West End theatres are just off Drury Lane, including the Fortune Theatre, the Aldwych Theatre, and the Theatre Royal. There are a huge number of pubs and bars nearby, and the area is also very well served in terms of places to eat. There are also nightspots like Brazilian nightclub, Guanabara.

 

Drury Lane is named after Sir William Drury, who was  Knight of the Garter in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The lane led up to his house, Drury House. This house was the scene of the plotting that led to the downfall of the queens one-time favourite, the Earl of Essex. By the late seventeenth century the house had become a public house, under the sign of The Queen of Bohemia, reputed to be the mistress of Drury Houses owner, the Earl of Craven. 

 

After the restoration and into the eighteenth century, Drury Lane became famed as a place where low culture flourished. It was characterised by gin palaces and prostitution and the disreputable actors who flocked there. It was one of Londons most notorious slums (in sharp contrast to its reputation and appearance today), and became enshrined in childrens popular culture as the dwelling place of the Muffin Man in the nursery rhyme. 

 

The Theatre Royal is the streets main attraction, and it has been in different locations on Drury Lane for the last 350 years. It has a good claim on being the oldest theatre in London (or one of two at least). This enduring feature of Drury Lane has maintained the lanes theatrical reputation and still provides top-quality entertainment to this day. 

 

If you are particularly interested in the history of Londons theatre and slums then Drury Lane may well be worth a visit, although it does not have any specific attractions to see. It is a historically important road, although it was completely redeveloped in the nineteenth century, and so very little of its original fabric still stands.
