Best Way to Hilton London Kensington

We are leaving to Paris tomorrow. We are taking the train to London on Wednesday. Once I get to the train station in London, which is the best way/cheapest to get to the Hilton London Kensington Hotel?

You can take the tube: Bakerloo line north to Oxford Circus, where you change onto the Central line going west to Holland Park.

The best way to go would be by taxi and would cost between £10 and £12. Depending on how many of you are travelling then the the cheapest would be the tube, as decribed by Hickney, above at £2 each. When you get to Holland park tube station, you would have about a 5 minute walk to the hotel.

If you go to www.streetmap.co.uk and type W11 4UL (the post code for the Hilton) into the search box and click on search you will be able to see a map of the area showing the tube station and the hotel.

You have a couple of choices and they will depend on the amount of luggage you have and your stamina.

You can take the tube( northern line) from Waterloo to Tottenham Ct rd and change to the Central line to Holland park from there you can either walk about 10 minutes to your hotel or take a cab.

You can take the Bakerloo line from Waterloo to Oxford Circus then the Central line to Holland pk and continue as above.

You can take a taxi from Waterloo to the hotel, this might be a little expensive( I have no idea how much) but would be the easier option if you have much luggage or dont' want to walk to the hotel.

We we have only one suitcase. We have done it before... walk for 10 min should be ok. THanks for all your advices.

Any recommendations of a MUST do beside the main attractions (Big Ben, London Tower, Eye,..)?

Food: What is a most besides the famous Fish and Chips?

I often wonder why they don't call it the Shepherd's Bush Hilton though.

Or maybe I can guess, lol.
