Location & Directions

The Strand, London

Located between the Strand and Covent Garden in London. One Aldwych is surrounded by theatres and museums, making it the perfect hotel to explore London.

When to go

It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
