8 Easy-to-Access London Attractions Along the New Elizabeth Linecreative33
London’s newest line on the underground network has now partially opened for business, and with it finally comes easier lateral connections between East and West London.
As of right now (May 2022), the line is still split into three separate sections, with only the central segment in full operation.
But this is only a temporary measure, as from the Autumn onwards everything will become fully linked, all the way from Reading and Heathrow to Abbey Wood and Shenfield.
What will this mean for guests of the Lansbury Hotel?
So many wonderful London attractions will become more accessible than ever during your stay, and you can keep reading for a list of some of our highlights.
London’s Most Iconic Skyscrapers (Alight Liverpool Street, 2 Stops)
Some of London’s more modern architectural feats can be found here, such as the Gherkin and the Walkie-Talkie, which also happens to hold a fantastic sky garden with panoramic views across the city. This stop also offers access to the Bank of England and its fascinating museum, all about the history of finance.
Oxford Street (Alight Tottenham Court Road, 4 Stops)
One of the capital’s most famous high-street shopping areas, you can find almost anything you could ever want amongst the buzzing crowds of Oxford Street. A true London experience for any visitor, especially those hoping to leave with plenty of souvenir purchases.
Covent Garden (Alight Tottenham Court Road, 4 Stops)
Once you’ve reached Oxford Street, you can head over to the iconic boutique market of Covent Garden and its nearby West End theatres in as little as 10 minutes on foot, leaving you well and truly in the centre of all the action.
Hyde Park (Alight Paddington, 6 Stops)
Hyde Park is just one of many of the capital’s more beautiful outdoor spaces. With a gorgeous rose garden, stunning array of wildlife and impressive memorial statues and fountains, you can easily spend several lazy hours here.
V&A and Natural History Museums (Alight Paddington, 6 Stops)
Once you’ve come out the other end of Hyde Park, you’re only a stone’s throw from some of London’s best museums. The Natural History Museum is a particular favourite of ours!
Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park (Alight Ealing Broadway, 8 Stops)
A restored Georgian villa on the edge of yet another beautiful area of parkland, Pitzhanger Manor sees architect Sir John Soane’s visions come to life. In addition to the house itself, the Pitzhanger gallery offers West London’s largest space for exhibitions and contemporary art.
Hanwell Zoo (Alight Hanwell, 10 Stops)
If you’re not familiar with London, Hanwell might be a new one to you, but if London Zoo is just too big and busy for you, you can see a few wonderful smaller animals at the zoo at Hanwell.
Heathrow Airport (Alight Heathrow Terminals, 13-14 Stops)
While this might not be an attraction as such, it is still a very convenient link to enjoy and so definitely worth featuring.
