I'm looking for a cheap hotel somewhere near the tube.

    I also walk past there every day and have never been in. :oops: (Have eaten in the Stone Cave though obviously not on belly dancing night...)

    8115 sitting down is bad for you

    Don't stay in the YHA opposite St Pancras. I had the worst night's sleep I've ever had there.

    Honestly, central hotels are only a bit more expensive than ones out in the wilds of south London and much more convenient for everything. If you really can’t do the extra money you’re better off on Airbnb.

    My parents are ex-Londoners, they know the score.

    Puddy_Tat hmm

    211 bus (see previous on the subject of paying cash) stops outside Victoria Coach Station, and runs to the taxi road at Waterloo. It's a bit of a walk from VCS to Victoria Underground

    I stayed there for the month of June in 1984. I was working in Bart's pharmacy for the month.

    Actually, London is so well connected you don't need to be by a tube at all.

    Somewhere like Greenwich would make a great base for a few days exploring.

    You have the DLR which is quick and easy to places that have a tube connection as well as trains straight into central London.

    You also can take a short walk to the Naval colleges, churches and museums by the river and use the clipper service along the river to central London for a smidgen more in cost than the train/tube. Really nice and historically interesting walks along the river from there too, some markets, the foot tunnel, the cutty sark etc.

    You can access all that Central London has to offer easily then retreat and enjoy the accessible by foot stuff in the Greenwich area.
