Underrated and seriously awesome
Paris might steal the limelight for European cities in this part of the world but London (for me) was the pick. During summer (when the sun is shining and everyone has a smile on their face as a result) it's an Eden with enormous parks where you'll find office workers sprawled out for a mid afternoon nap and quirky suburbs catering to all tastes. There's something infinitely magical about the city centre itself with so many iconic buildings and monuments adding to the British charm.
Insider Tip:Mastering the tube is your key to travel success within the city. Save money by eating at smaller cafes off the beaten track (many do lunch time specials) and take the time just to meander through the many many parks - they are what make London so charming. The British museum is a must as it's free and immense.
