The location is great for visiting the historical and iconic sights within the City of London including St. Paul’s, Bank of England, Lloyds, Gherkin, etc. We are situated only five minutes walk from the Tower of London with its World Heritage status, also the famous Tower Bridge and the yacht marina at St. Katharine’s dock with its bars and restaurants. There are excellent views of Tower Bridge, the battleship HMS Belfast and of the London Thames scene from the walkway in front of the Tower of London. Across the river Butlers Wharf/Hays Galleria and TATE Modern.
The nearest underground station is Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines, which is a few minutes walk from the Lodge. Exit the station facing the Tower of London and walk 100 metres to the left to the main road. At the main road turn left and walk under the railway bridge to the first set of traffic lights in Minories (street). Portsoken Street is on the right at the lights and the Lodge is at the far end of the street on the left. Entry to the lobby is by the car park. Connections to all parts of London and the West End are available from Tower Hill, though it may be necessary to change trains for certain destinations.
The River Bus and cruisers depart from nearby Tower Pier (to the right of Tower of London) both east to Greenwich for Cutty Sark & Greenwich Maritime Museum and west to Westminster and beyond stopping at various points including the London Eye & Millennium Dome. It is an excellent way to see the city and get around.
