Right next door to the hotel is the fascinating British Museum, which has over 7 million ancient artifacts from all over the world including Islamic pottery, Incan reliefs, Egyptian sarcophagi and the phenomenal Rosetta Stone. It is a wonderful place to while the afternoon away and afterwards, you can head straight to Lamb’s Conduit Street, a traditional thoroughfare with independent cafes, booksellers and the landmark Lamb pub, an oasis of Victoriana. Or you can meander along Oxford Street's mile and a half of shops to purchase some souvenirs.

Tottenham Court Road Station is just a five-minute walk away, which services the Central and Northern lines, providing you with direct links to London's main attractions. You are just one stop away from Leicester Square tube station, which services the Piccadilly line. This will take you directly to Heathrow Airport; or King's Cross St Pancras Station, where the Eurostar terminates. If you are driving to the hotel, it is situated just off the main A4 road, which can be accessed via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone.

With a trusted name like the Radisson and a fantastic London location in a safe up market area, this hotel is great for a jaunt around this exciting city. Guests should be aware that hotel lifts can be small so you may want to request a porter and basic rooms can be small, so it is worth stretching your budget for the next grade up, or you can try your luck and ask for an upgrade because the attentive staff may be more than willing to accommodate you.
