Novotel London Tower Bridge

You’d struggle to find a better location in the capital than the Novotel London Tower Bridge. The four-star hotel is just metres from Tower Bridge and the Tower of London and near both the tube and DLR.

On the edge of The City, Novotel London Tower Bridge is within walking distance of St Paul's Cathedral too.

Hiver beers and tap room, London

Hiver was born out of an admiration for London’s urban beekeepers and a passion for great quality beer. The brewery uses a blend of urban and rural honeys from independent British beekeepers to produce a distinctive and moreish beer. 

It has proved so popular that now the Hiver Experience, including beer tastings and food pairings, is a sell out at their premises near Tower Bridge.
