London may be an old city with historical landmarks, but that doesn't mean all of its B&Bs are decorated traditionally. Many London bed and breakfasts are located in historic properties that have been renovated with modern design, blending the old with the new. The UK's Prince William married Catherine Middleton in London today. They are a young, hip couple that had a traditional royal wedding in Westminster Abbey, also blendig the old and the new. In honor of their wedding, here are photos of some of London's modern B&Bs and small hotels.
