... years. He gave the course, which was really interesting and insightful. It was about what to focus on in your writing, picking appropriate topics, use of language and not overusing clichés that everyone does. He also went into how to get published and so forth. It went from 10-6 so it was a long day, but it gave me a lot to think about in regards to my future travels and what I would write about them. As well as the travels I have already done. So it was ...

Yes, they walked, due to climate change, there was a land bridge from the Continent.
As we will see, this swirling population movement was a common theme and continues to this day to play an important role in the UK.
Yesterday morning we went to see the Crown jewels, and then up to Camden Market, which is huuuuge! You can find everything from designer shoes to souvenirs to junk to antiques to the latest goth fashion. Back to Leicester Square to get discount show tickets, then back to our room for a nap. We only had time for a quick bite before seeing Top Hat. It won Olivier ...

Upon departure of the park, we left to navigate our way to the centre of town to hop on a tour bus. This is by far the best and only way to see the whole of London in a short span of time. It gives you a ...

I prefer my friend Sue’s method—let’s see something in our own time, then sit and have a drink ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Parkcity London
My partner and I just returned from the Park City after a 2 night stay. The hotel is in easy walking distance of at least 3 tube stations and the nearby restaurants and bars at Earls Court. The breakfast was exceptional and included a lovely continential buffet including fresh fruit, cheese, meats and pastries plus freshly cooked english breakfast served at your table ( which makes a refreshing change from the usual 'hot' buffets in many of the larger 4 star chain hotels). Food is reasonably priced for London, however the wine list seems expensive in comparsion. The view of the garden at night from our bedroom window was fab especially watching the squirrels and twinkling fairy lights. All in all a lovely hotel in a good location with extremely friendly staff. Would stay again and recommend to family and friends.
Stayed at the Parkcity for 1 night, and am so sorry it wasnt for longer! We were going to a concert at the Albert Hall, and it was about a fifteen minute walk away (five if you take a cab). The hotel is just a short walk from the nearest tube station, making it very easy to get around central London. The staff were discreet, friendly and efficient. Had two adjoining rooms as we had our older children with us, and both rooms were spotless. The bathrooms were beautiful. Breakfast was superb and service was great. I am booking to go back with just my husband soon, and could not recommend this place highly enough. Gorgeous, a real gem!
This is a superb hotel with fantastic staff. From the Bose CD radios to the wonderful breakfasts, it's all of the highest quality. We loved the area, there are some really characterful, elegant streets around the nearby Earls Court tube stop, with plenty of good restaurants. Seek out the official site for photos - theparkcity dot com. Why they are still posting those old pics on here I don't know - they bear no relation to the cool elegance of the real thing.
We just returned from a weekend at The Parkcity hotel, and I would recommend it stongly. The hotel has just opened, it's located in a quiet street close to subway (6 min.) and bus number 74 (2 min.) takes you straight to the city center in 10 minutes. A big supermarket is located at only 100 metres from the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are spotlessly clean and with a modern style interior and good bed. The standard room has a mini-bar, lcd flatscreen TV, Bose radio and cd-player, safe, and a very nice spacious bathroom with bathtub/shower and fluffy towels. The breakfast was fantastic with everything you need from a choice of good rolls, fresh mango and other fruits, danish pastry, and even delicious Parma ham! We found a deal on internet for only 88 pounds a night with breakfast included. I think a very good offer for a beautiful 4 star hotel on a good location.
We were really impressed with the Parkcity hotel. It's fairly new so everything is still fresh and beautiful. The public areas in particular are very classy, much more welcoming than the picture on their website suggests, and a lovely smell pervades the whole hotel. The staff were all extrememly pleasant and helpful.
My Girlfriend and I stayed at the ParkCity for a late valentines stay and were more than impressed with this recently opened hotel.
My new London base! I'll be booking into here whenever I come to London from now on. The reviews on Trip advisor persuaded me to give it a try and I'm so glad I did.
Just returned from a three night stay - Jan 13th arrival/Jan 16th departure. The location was just off Cromwell Road within a 6 minute walk to the tube and an easy walk to the Natural History Museum, Harrods, Kensington Palace, etc.
An Excellent Hotel - Great Professional Staff
This is one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in whilst in London.
I think the hotel is newly opened but there was none of the teething troubles sometimes encountered at other newly opened hotels. Indeed a lot of well established hotels could learn from it.
The staff are so professional and helpful (a real rarity for a London hotel) and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was high quality and very peaceful so that I enjoyed a very good nights sleep. I ate in the restaurant which again I would highly recommend.
I would definitely return to this hotel again.
Everything about our stay was great. The service was second to none. I arrived on my own with our 3 week old baby and the reception, portering, front of house etc staff were so helpful. The room was great, breakfast fab and I could not complain about a thing. My husband had to leave v early but it was not a problem for him to settle the account and for me to stay later. We could not have been made to feel more welcome - fantastic all round. We certainly will be going back.
