Situated in the city of Westminster, Constitution Hill connects the western end of Buckingham Palace with Hyde Park Corner, so is smack bang in the middle of the main sights and attractions that you’ll want to see during a visit to the capital.
While the name suggests that is a steep road or area, there is in fact barely a detectable slope on the road, making it a perfect spot for a leisurely winter stroll with the kids.
If you fancy visiting some of the best spots in London you’re in luck, as many of them are within walking distance of this iconic location.
Explore the city by foot, then hop on a public transport link and arrive back at your room at the Park Grand London Paddington where you will be able to relax in a warm and comfortable setting.
