With Christmas holidays just around the corner,  the desire to go to the British capital for a few days certainly grows bigger too. Yes, but where to sleep if you're traveling as a tribe? Here, our best addresses to enjoy London with children.

Town Hall Hotel, practical and fashionable

Located in East London, this beautiful Edwardian establishment has everything you need for a family stay in London . Vast, peaceful, well-equipped, it has suites laid out like authentic apartments – perfect for families. In addition to the kitchenette present in each suite, one will appreciate the cachet of the building itself, which is none other than the former town hall of the Bethnal Green district (of which the hotel has kept part of the furniture). In addition, the heated swimming pool, all in length and shallow, will seduce young and old, while gourmets will set sail for the two-star restaurant of the place, the Da Terra. Last but not least, this Marriott hotel is well located, as it is just a few minutes' walk from the bucolic Regent's Canal, which overlooks Victoria Park – where children can work out at leisure. In terms of transport, the premises are a stone's throw from the Bethnal Green underground, where the Central Line passes – the most practical way to reach central London. In addition, the Museum of Childhood is right next to the hotel, while the Museum of the Home, which is also suitable for young audiences, is 7 minutes away by car.
