Perfect location, cosy room and the comfiest bed ever. I had never thought of staying away from home in London before, as I live there, but I absolutely loved staying at the Moorgate. 

Staycation at the Moorgate, London

Where is the Moorgate?

I wanted to go and explore some new areas of London that I hadn’t been to, or not for a long time and The Moorgate was the perfect base to do this from. The Moorgate is right in the centre on London, by Liverpool Street and a short walk to Moorgate station.

It’s also near to so many restaurants and bars within walking distance. We chose Burger and Lobster which was a 5 minute walk away. However, for breakfast we were able to cook our own food as there is a fully equipped kitchen. Also as a really sweet touch, we had complementary snacks when we arrived, as well as some porridge for the morning. We even had a small carton of milk for tea.

The room at the Moorgate

The room has such beautiful decor and I had the best nights sleep. The bathroom also had underfloor heating and the mirrors had sections that don’t fog up when you’re in the shower, just so many details that made our stay even more special.

We felt so at home, and such a calm oasis in the middle of busy central London, makes you forget where you are!

I would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting London, you couldn’t be more central and the public transport connections will get you anywhere in under 30 minutes.

What to do in London while staying at the Moorgate

If you only have 1 day in London, there is still so much to see! Be sure to make the most of it, get up early and go! There are also so many free things to do in London, so don’t worry about it being too expensive!

Notting Hill

We were able to go and visit Notting Hill, where I hadn’t been in a long time! I love all the little shops and colourful buildings. I had last been there for Notting Hill carnival where it all looks very different, as the streets are completely taken over by feathers and dancers and huge stages with music and the streets are packed! But I would also recommend going if you are in London while the carnival is on.

Kew Gardens

We also went for a short visit to Kew Gardens. I would say you need a whole day here and go as early as you can, as it gets very busy! My favourite areas there are the Palm House and the green house with the cacti! It’s also about £17 per person. Lovely on a sunny day! Also if you go at the weekend, there is a great market right by the tube station with fresh food.
