The Bird's Nest
The attached bar offers entertainment, including some live music, art exhibitions, comedy, cabaret, film and theatre showings and more. There is also a pool table, and a selection of fine beverages. Free tea and coffee is available to guests 24/7.
It has been said that we are a bit 'scruffy around the edges' but the up side of this is, character, fun, a warm welcome and a non-sterile attitude towards our guests and their stay.
There are close transport links to many of Londons major attractions including The West End, Soho, The London Eye, Canary Wharf, East Londons old dockyards, The 2012 Olympic Stadium and The O2 Arena. There is a 24 hr bus service that stops just outside The Hostel, making The Birds Nest the perfect place to explore London and beyond.
We are also a short train ride away from The Kent countryside, known as Englands Garden.
Local attractions include The Royal Naval College, Greenwich Maritime Museum, The Royal Observatory, The Meridian Line which is the dividing line between the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, St Nicholas Church, aka The Jolly Roger Skull and Crossbones, Goldsmiths University, The Laban Contemporary Dance Centre, The APT Art Gallery and Creekside which is home to SE Londons artistic community, and many green parks including Her Majesty The Queens, Royal Greenwich Park.
The Bird's Nest is an 8 minute train ride from Central London in the heart of South East London's historical maritime community of Deptford, wedged between the scenic Greenwich on the River Thames, and the bustling contemporary cultural centre of New Cross.
