‘Let’s all go down the Strand’ sang Victorian music hall entertainers – and the advice still holds. Staying at one of the Strand's best hotels gives you access to one of the most historic thoroughfares in London. Linking Trafalgar Square with Fleet Street, the Strand is within walking distance of so much, from the multifarious shops of Covent Garden to the cultural hub of the South Bank just across the river. At one end of the street is Charing Cross tube and train station. At the other is arty Somerset House, home to the Courtauld Gallery, outdoor gigs, an ice rink and some acclaimed dining, including funky café Fernandez & Wells and lovely British restaurant Spring. Here are our five favourite hotels on the Strand.
