Does anyone know of a B & B that sleeps seven in Central London?

Frankly, I think you're chasing an illusion - there aren't any. Well maybe there are but I've never really noticed B&Bs when bussing/walking around London. You'd be better off looking for a small hotel - maybe one that styles itself boutique

booking.com for example lists 18 establishments under their B&B category in central London. None of them actually style themselves as B&B - more usually hotel and some are actually chain hotels, not necessarily any the worse for that. There's one or two of them you might look at if you are not dead set on the words B&B - they meet your sort of description in your other posts.

I agree. I think you are using the term B&B in a way that is not recognised over here. In the UK a B&B establishment is one where the owner, who very probably lives in a wing of the (usually quite large) house, rents out rooms to paying guests. This enterprise will often be a supplement to other forms of income coming into the household. You'll have to venture some way into the suburbs before you find B&Bs and, though good value, savings are soon wiped out by much higher transport costs on uncomfortably crowded trains.

Dzug1 calls it right. B&Bs are very rare in Central London, though Captain Bligh's house seems to be an exception, so instead just look for budget hotels. People ask about these regularly on this forum and a quick scan through on the search facility will give you plenty to consider.

Just to note, OP has 2 threads running with essentially the same question. Here's the other.
