Expensive European cars and up-market stores set the scene for this unassuming hotel near Kensington's high street. Sharing a district with London's affluent, the Copthorne Tara Hotel benefits from high-end environs while allowing easy access to the rest of London via the nearby High Street Kensington tube. Both the West End and the shopping of Piccadilly Circus are only a few stops away on the Circle line and in the immediate vicinity guests can make use of a plethora of Art Deco shops, pubs and cafes. For those with a few quid still left by the weekend, the hotel is just one stop away from the Portobello Road markets and antique stores in Notting Hill. At the end of the day, guests can come back to a room with a good view, a comfortable bed and enough space to throw down their shopping bags.
