Holiday Accommodation in Tower Hill

Being close to so many world-famous attractions, it will come of little surprise that Tower Hill is a popular place to stay for tourists visiting London. Thanks to the area’s central location, it is also the ideal base from which to explore the wider city, such as the sophisticated west end, the south bank and the hipster capitals of north London. Naturally, this means there is an abundance of holiday accommodation in Tower Hill - ranging from chain hotels to luxurious private apartments.

Where to Stay in Tower Hill

Tower Hill encompasses a small area to the north of the eponymous landmark. In terms of where to stay in Tower Hill, any location will be easily walkable from the next and just as close to the public transport hubs. As such, choosing a location will mostly come down to personal taste. In general, many visitors prefer to be slightly away from the Tower itself, as it inevitably draws huge crowds throughout the day. With this in mind, popular locations include the intersection between Pepys Street and Cooper’s Row - which puts visitors close to all the local amenities as well as being equidistant between overground and underground railway stations - and the area immediately surrounding American Square, which is particularly notable for its vibrant nightlife. 

Facts About Tower Hill

Tower Hill is instantly recognisable due to its being home to one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Of course, the Tower of London has a long and often gruesome history, and being one of the oldest parts of the city, there are numerous fascinating facts associated with Tower Hill: 

  • Approximately two million people visit the Tower of London each year
  • The Tower was founded by William the Conqueror towards the end of 1066.
  • Several ghosts are said to be residents at the Tower of London including Henry VI, Catherine (the fifth wife of King Henry VIII), Dame Sybil who was the nurse of Prince Edward and even a grizzly bear that once lived in the tower.

Cost of Living in Tower Hill

Tower Hill is an extremely popular part of London, so visitors will find that prices here can often be higher than places further from the centre. The cost of living in general will, of course, depend largely on lifestyle. However, when budgeting for a trip there are a few key expenses to consider. Rent will be the biggest expenditure, with the average price of an apartment in Tower Hill ranging from £1500 to approximately £4,000 per month, depending on the size of the property. This cost may seem high, but it’s worth remembering that Tower Hill really is premium city-centre real estate. Furthermore, visitors to the area may find they boost cost-efficiency by booking into serviced accommodation - which can often work out cheaper than the standard rental market, especially for longer-term stays. 

Travel is another cost to consider, but thankfully is something that can easily be budgeted for: a weekly Zone 1 - 2 travel card for use on buses, trains and tube will offer unlimited transport and costs around £36. Finally, socialising and leisure activities will also add significantly to outgoing costs during a stay in Tower Hill. This can be harder to cost accurately, as spending will vary hugely according to lifestyle. However, as a general guide, a meal for two in the area is likely to cost between £40 and £200 depending on the restaurant. Meanwhile, the average pint of beer or a glass of wine served in a bar or pub will cost upwards of £6. 

London can seem like an expensive city, but there are plenty of ways to save money. For example, a city pass offers discounted entry to many attractions and several restaurants offer two-for-one dining on certain days of the week. Researching such offers prior to travel can greatly reduce the everyday cost of living in Tower Hill.
