MORE THAN SIMPLE GUIDES
Feel the history in the heart of elegant Holland Park. One wing of the hostel is a former Jacobean mansion, built in 1607 for Sir Walter Cope, Chancellor of the Exchequer for James I. In the 19th century, Lady Holland had a salon here, attended by such famous names as Sheridan, Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Wordsworth and Dickens. It now offers large, comfortable rooms that overlook the park and is adjacent to the open-air theatre. Just off Kensington High Street, the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace and the main museums are all within walking distance.
The hostel features a total of 220 beds in large traditional styled dormitories, ideal for a bed for the night and seeing the sights of London during the day.
