Mobile Hotels near M25 North but also link to London

Hi all

Iím after a hotel (Premier Inn or similar is fine) that is:

Close to the M25 (the section from roughly Watford to roughly Enfield) but also close enough for a cheap taxi to a tube or overground station into London?

I think thatís the best area for what we want but here are the constraints in case anyone has any other better locations!


We will be heading up from the South West Friday evening so want to try and stay under a four hour drive ish, preferably less but experience tells me that we should get to roughly there on the M25 by that time!

Visiting a relative in hospital in Chelmsford on Saturday afternoon (so less than an hour each way from the hotel)

Then jumping on a train / tube for an evening in London to celebrate my husbandís 50th birthday

Sunday drive home.


I know all the COVID restrictions. But weíve gone from cruising in Japan, to a weekend in DLP, to a weekend in London, to a surprise meal with friends and family locally which also canít now happen so Iím just thinking of other things that MAY be possible - wonít be booking yet though itís only ten days away now 😜

Thanks all

Mercure Noke Saint Albans is near junction 21a M25 and is usually about £60. You can drive to Saint Albans rail station and quick direct train into London.

Thank you! We stayed at Junction 22 last time but no direct train close to there (I donít think).

Premier Inn Watford is close to Bushey, Watford High St and Watford Junction stations. Watford Junction - Euston is 15 mins. You can also get the 142 to Stanmore station for the tube (It depends where in London you want to go).

Watford (Junction 19-21) is approx 1.5hrs from Chelmsford though.

Enfield/Waltham cross area (Junction 25) might be closer but donít think you can get the tube from there.

I did consider that!

Iím trying to avoid the 5-6 hours drive on the Friday night and home again on the Sunday...

Just trying to split up some of that drive if you know what I mean?

It should take only four hours but each time weíve done it itís taken considerably longer

Thank you

However I try and break the journey up itís grim! Just trying to find a way to make DHís birthday slightly better than being on the M25 only (but in my attempt to do that maybe Iím making it worse, I canít decide!)

We normally stop at the premier inn at Wembley Park. Bit further in but not too bad From the end of the M1. If youíre going at a weekend parking in the underground car park is normally available and really cheap. Smack bang next to the underground station too.

That looks a bit further from the M25 than I am after as we are doing that bit four times but ideal that itís by the underground!

What about staying at Stratford Westfield shopping centre.

You can then get the train to Chelmsford and the central line into London.

Otherwise there is the Premier Inn Enfield which is close to the line into Liverpool Street and Enfield lock station.
