London Pocket Guide

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.

London City Reviews

  • 80%



    Very expensive city to travel to since British Pounds are not cheap. Love the vibe of the city; it has a lot of character (especially at Camden) and with all the street performers and museums you'll experience culture in a way you'll never forget. Very safe in general. Transport is expensive. Food can be cheap if bought from street markets but otherwise very expensive. Many interesting things to see, like the beautiful Royal Parks and museums, which are free to visit!

    Insider Tip:Museums are free here, do pay a visit to a few of them! But be sure not to visit too many or you'll suffer from museum fatigue :O Visit the Camden Comedy Club!

    Only stayed a night so i didn't get the full experience. But from what i gathered, a cool dive bar atmosphere. It amazed me the options they had for breakfast as well

    Incredible city!

    I loved London!! I'm a city person, which helps, but there is something for everyone in London. The club scene wasn't great, but there were plenty of cool bars and pubs to compensate

    Insider Tip:If you're a Harry potter fan, book with muggletours.co.uk! So much fun! Do the refillable oyster card, so you get leftover money back at the end

    Never gets old

    I've been to London several times and I would recommend it to anyone! There's a lot to do (sometimes too much) and if you've seen it all, you can still walk around and find amazing other areas of London. The parks are beautiful and the attractions are amazing. Museums are mostly free and usually everywhere has a student discount. The city can be a bit pricey but you have to be smart about where to eat if you're on a budget. Cheap places are off the tourist path and are usually better anyways

    Insider Tip:Get an oyster card and learn the bus system. The buses are cheaper and you get a great view of the city.

    Standard vs Alternative

    London has plenty of things to see and do, many of which are very famous. If you are after something a little different try Googling 'Alternative London' for street art tours.

    Insider Tip:The two hour walking tour with Alternative London is well worth your time. Like all 'Free' tours, pay what you think it is worth at the end of the tour!
