Images Of London

Covering over 600 square miles, London is by far Europe's largest city. But don't let this put you off - many of its most famous landmarks are within walking distance of each other. From Big Ben and Westminster Abbey you can wander the streets only to find yourself at the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus. The English capital is also perfect for those who enjoy living life at a fast pace. With 47% of the city's population between the age of 16 and 44, there are fewer places on the planet with as much energy as London.

    Like other major cities...

    It was too hot for most of my stay (1 month). Gotta try to visit again at a better time of year. And what CAN'T you do in London? You will never be bored, though you might be broke.

    Insider Tip:Buy souvenirs last unless you feel you won't find the item anywhere else (trust me, you will) and don't plan on going back. Book train and coach travel on the day you want to travel because if something changes, refunds are next to impossible. When leaving the UK, if you bought an Oyster card for use on public transport and you want the deposit back (I think £5), claim it in a London station and not outside of London.

    London

    London has lots of things to do - in an 'international city' like this it has one of whatever you want to do.

    Insider Tip:Maybe go on a walking tour - I found them very fun and learned a lot of things like history. I went on the jack the ripper tour with http://freelondonwalkingtours.com/ and it was very interesting x

    Never feel boring in London

    London is one of the best cities I have visited. You never feel boring walking around London. It is inclusion of business, history, architecture, museum, park, church, art and live.

    Insider Tip:check the open and close hour of the places you are going to visit. Normally it is shorter on Sunday, like the shops and supermarkets close at around 6PM.

    Buzzling city with people everywhere.

    Only spend 1 night there. Its definitely a great city to visit with lots of museums and attractions.

    Insider Tip:For the Buckingham palace change of guards, please be there before 11am to get the best viewing location.

    London baby?

    Is an expensive big city. If your going on vacations you should probably skip it unless you just want a picture of Big Ben to put on your instagram or facebook account.

    Insider Tip:But if you're there you should just spend your time in Shoreditch, it pays of a little bit.
