today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a

time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

Crown Plaza at Kings X is about £100 and good value for what it is but Travelodge is clean and adequate at £49. They are equidistant. Have a fun trip!
