  CRESCENT HOTEL MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR STAY IN LONDON
 
TOURS OF LONDON
We recommend the Original London Walks (www.walks.com), which our guests have enthusiastically praised.
Our guests similarly commend the Big Bus Company (www.bigbus.co.uk)
River cruises including night time cruises with dinner can be booked through:
www.citycruises.com
And for the truly intrepid there are bike tours from www.londonbicycle.com

For an enjoyable day out under your own steam visit Greenwich:

Take a tube from Bank and change on to the DLR (www.dlr.co.uk) to Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich. The Cutty Sark (www.cuttysark.org.uk), an old Tea-Clipper dominates the riverside. Move up to the National Maritime Museum (www.rmg.co.uk) not only for the exhibits but for Wren's work on the Old Royal Naval College. Adjacent is Inigo Jones' delightful Queen's House. Then continue up the hill to the Royal Observatory (www.rmg.co.uk). Finally take a leisurely boat back past the Tower of London to Embankment pier (see River Cruises) and from Embankment Underground home to the hotel.

 
TRIP OUTSIDE LONDON

The following locations can be a day trip by train: Bath Brighton Cambridge Canterbury Oxford York (for the dedicated train traveller) and Windsor. For information and booking tickets in advance see: www.thetrainline.com.

Give our address if you wish us to hold the rail tickets you have paid for in advance.
A further inexpensive option is use Green Line coaches (www.greenline.co.uk) - a network covering the Home Counties who offer access to Hatfield House, Leeds Castle and many other locations.
Finally if you want to tour the country for a couple of days before resuming your stay at the hotel, you can leave cases with us. We recommend Evan Evans Tours (www.evanevans.co.uk).
 
MOVING AROUND LONDON

Public Transport
For general information about public transport in London see www.tfl.gov.uk

Taxi
The hotel uses Radio Taxicabs (Black Cab) (www.radiotaxis.co.uk) 020-7272-0272.
Car Hire
If you want to hire a car for a trip out of London, our closest car hire company is Hertz (in Russell Square, WC1) - 5 minutes walk from the Hotel.
Chauffeured Cars
If you are coming from one of the major airports and are in a group it may be cheaper for a chauffeured car to meet you at the terminal rather than use public transport. We have found that Airport Executive Cars (www.airportexecutive.co.uk) is reliable and good value.
