Welcome to

Tavistock Hotel

Our Tavistock Hotel is a welcoming place to stay overlooking leafy Tavistock Square Gardens in the Bloomsbury neighbourhood.
We are close to Euston and Kings Cross St Pancras, a 10 – 15 minute walk away for connections to other parts of the UK and the Eurostar. Also, the underground, Russell Square, is a 2 minute walk away, connecting visitors to other parts of central London and Heathrow airport, via the Piccadilly line.
Virginia Woolf, the famous British writer, wrote some of her best novels in her home at number 52 Tavistock Square where she lived from 1924 until 1939. Our hotel proudly stands on the site of Woolf’s former home and there is an English Heritage blue plaque to look out for, on the left of our main entrance.
Refresh yourself with a drink or a light meal in our laid-back restaurant and bar, Woolf & Whistle, with a charming terrace area for warmer afternoons. Plus, our popular Indian restaurant, Poppadom, promises an authentic array of delicious dishes to enjoy before seeing a theatre show in the West End or to catch up with friends.

Superb value, for every London trip
