INTRODUCING THE CONTIKI BASEMENT 

00:00 / 00:00
17-4-16-contiki317-retouched

London can sometimes feel like something of a daunting prospect. It’s big, it’s bustling, the London Underground goes in every direction, and at first, it’s a tough cookie to crack.

We get this, so for you, our exclusive travellers, we have the ultimate, ever so freakin’ stylish solution to all your fresh off the plane jitters – the Contiki Basement.

WHAT IS THE BASEMENT?

The Basement is a centrally located one stop shop for all your LDN needs. It’s where your trip starts, where your kick-start meeting is held, where you’ll meet up with like-minded travellers, and where you’ll get a jumpstart on what it feels like to travel the world, Contiki style.

Did we mention it’s also probably one of the coolest spaces in London, and we’ve got a video that proves it. MTV cribs ain’t got nothing on us...

HOW TO GET THERE

Russell Square is where we call home, smack bang on the Piccadilly line which you can jump on direct from Heathrow Airport. 


Our central location and close distance to the tube means the whole of London really is at your fingertips, from cute Portobello Market in west to hipster Shoreditch in east.
