Sometimes when you’re in a new city, you want to get out and explore. It can be great to see the sights from a tour bus or even from the Thames, but now and again you need to get out and explore on foot.
Happily, your Montcalm City Hotel puts you in a perfect position to strike out and find your way to the nearby sights. From your base, you can take in some of the most famous highlights of the city and do it all on foot. Let’s dive in.
The First Leg – St Paul’s Cathedral
Stepping out of the Montcalm Royal London House, you’ll find yourself in the lovely surroundings of Finsbury Square. Just find your way to Finsbury Pavement, and you’ll be on the right track.
Finsbury Pavement will soon merge into Moorgate, and you’ll know you’re heading in the right direction as you pass Finsbury Circus Garden. All you need to do for now is keep going straight along Moorgate. Soon, you’ll reach London wall, and you’ll want to veer off to the right and follow this road. Soon enough you’ll see the Museum of London up ahead and, passing by this magnificent building, you will turn onto Aldersgate Street, which soon turns into St Martin’s-le-Grand. Heading straight, you’ll see your first destination, looking over the greenery of Paternoster Row – St Paul’s Cathedral. If your feet ache already, remember that you are staying in one of the best hotels near London City, and you have somewhere to rest up later on.
The Second Leg – London Bridge
After you’ve admired the beauty and sheer scale of St Paul’s, it’s time to head down towards the water.
Find St. Paul’s Churchyard road and follow it through the leafy surroundings until you come to Cannon Street. You’ll know you’re going in the right direction because you’ll pass by Mansion House and Cannon Street Tube stations. All you need to do is follow Cannon Street all the way to Monument. While you’re in the area, you might want to take a look at the Monument to the Great Fire of London, which is very close.
Now, all you need to do – and you’ll see London Bridge coming in the distance – is head along King William Street and, before you know it, you’ll be standing on London Bridge.
The Final Leg – The Tower of London
Once you’ve had your fill of London Bridge and its stunning views, it’s time to move on to the final destination on your sightseeing tour. Afterwards, you have a comfy, relaxing room at Montcalm City Hotel to take a load off later.
Heading back up King William Street, hang a right onto Lower Thames Street. Stay on this road and look out for St. Dunstan in the East Church Garden Park as you pass. Here, Lower Thames Street will split, and you want to keep on the route that veers toward the Thames. Keep going straight ahead, and you’ll find yourself at the infamous Tower of London. And, if all that history and evil doings aren’t enough, the Tower Pier is nearby for a spot of rest.
