Finding a Euston hotel these days could hardly be easier and the most straightforward strategy would be to visit the Travelodge website. There you’ll find details on the availability of rooms of any size and the costs associated with stays of any length. You can compare the prices of Travelodge’s Euston hotel but you will struggle to find the same quality of accommodation for a similar price.
Clearly, one of the primary reason you might want to spend a night or more in a hotel near Euston station is so that you can hop on a train at short notice and without needing to negotiate any other connections to get there. Here again, you’ll find that Travelodge’s offering is tough to beat given that it is little more than a stone’s throw from the station itself.
And if you need to get to and from other parts of central London or the entire south-east of England from your hotel then being located close to Euston gives you every opportunity to do so with a minimum of difficulty. Even when you cannot link to your destination from the Euston tube station you can walk across to King’s Cross or to St Pancras train stations within a matter of just a few minutes.
Equally you can grab a bus to just about anywhere in London from Euston Square or you can make use of the increasingly popular cycle hire scheme. These so-called Boris Bikes allow London residents and visitors alike to borrow a robust road bike for just one pound at a time. The experience can actually be really quite fun and the bikes are perfect for if you feel like a quick jaunt around the nearby Regent’s Park or Hyde Park, which are both just a few miles away and are particularly pleasant in the sunshine.

Even when you have run out of money whilst you are staying in France there are a number of free tourist attractions available for you to visit throughout the year.
The Notre-Dame Cathedral is located on the Seine in Paris. Visitors to the must see Cathedral are able to walk through and take in the sights but please bear in mind some of the museums will ask for a small admission fee. Whilst you are in Paris it may also be worth visiting the Louvre and its gardens. The grounds and gardens are free to visit all year round and the Louvre has free admission on the first Sunday of the month. This is by far one of the most popular places to visit. Guided tours for visitors are also available during your visit. Workshops are provided for visitors and some of them cater for children.
Whilst the Sacre Coeur does have more than a few steps to climb it is most definitely worth it. This stunning church is on the Mont Martre, which has always provided many with a place to worship, has the most amazing views during the sunrise and sunset. There are a number of different special occasions held throughout the year but a daily mass takes place too.
For the fashion conscious tourists, the Galaries La Fayette provides completely free fashion shows by many top designers on a Friday at 3pm. With 50% off some of the top labels you may want to try and save some money if you plan on visiting.
The Luxembourg garden is brilliant for a relaxing day with some organised activities available if you wish to join in. It has a picturesque setting with a number of flowerbeds, sculpture and fountains. Play areas are available for children. You will come across many different types of people whilst visiting due to its central location. There are a number of exhibits held throughout the year as well as open air concerts.
