Where do Rick's tour stay in London?

I'll be traveling to England for a non RS tour next May, but plan t spend several days in London. Not sure what area to stay in. We plan to do the tourist spots - tower of London, British Museum, etc. Night life is not a consideration but good restaurants are. Just wondering what area Rick's tour stay or mention of a specific hotel.

His tours stay in a few different hotels.

As you start to plan your time in London, you'll see that many of the most popular attractions are spread out throughout the city.

There is no one area thats perfect to stay in. Even Rick's hotels are spread out.

Public transportation will be your friend.

If you give us your budget, we can suggest some hotels.

One of our RS tours stayed at Bailey's Hotel at 140 Gloucester Rd in Kensington. It was really convenient for some attractions, not so much others. The tube station at Gloucester road is just a minute walk away.

Define “ stay several days.” How many?

When you say good restaurants do you mean Michelin starred? Pub grub?

Over decades of travel to London besides staying with friends here are a variety of accommodations.

Vancouver Studios
Premier Inns
The Royal Horseguards Hotel
Marriot Regents Park
Hilton London Islington

All were fine.

I was figuring on 200 USD/night and we plan to spend 4 nights in London. Regarding food - we like good food but don't care about Michelin starts at all.

London has about every choice of ethnic food you could desire. Indian, Italian, Chinese, German, African, to name a few.

Ciao Bella in Bloomsbury

Dishoom is a good chain.

Manteca in Shoreditch for Italian
Joy King Lau in Chinatown
Kurt Chicken Mortlake neighborhood
Dragon Inn Richmond neighborhood
