40 Winks Guesthouse London40 Winks Guesthouse London

If you are going to London, try to get a room in 40 Winks, a restored Queen Anne townhouse built in 1717 in East London. It is the home of interior designer David Carter. Popular among artists, photographers and fashion people, it is often used in photo shoots so you need to book in advance.

40 Winks has two guest rooms and the prices are very reasonable (£65 for Room 1 which has a single bed and £95 for Room 2 which is suitable for two persons). He charges a £5 supplement if you are only staying for one night.

The guesthouse is located Stepney Green (East London), a four-minute walk from the Stepney Green underground station (the District and Hammersmith and City lines go through this station).
