My family of 5 (husband, children 10 and 14 and Mom) will be visiting London for 4 nights in April. I have been considering an apartment in or around London to provide a little more room and the ability to cook dinner sometimes.
Is this a good idea? The less expensive places seem to be outside the general "London tourist area". How far out is too far? I'm trying to get places close to tubes or railways but I'm not sure how hard it will be to switch tubes coming in to get to our sights. We won't need to be in the city in the evening much--just one night for a play in the West End.
Anyone have a good recommendation?
