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

    Such an expensive city! Everything from food to sites to day travel passes. However, we lucked out with the weather so I guess it breaks even. Get the Oyster card rather than trying to buy train/bus tickets everyday for travel. And get the london pass as you can see more for a little cheaper.

    Impressive but expensive

    I wouldn't say that the city in itsellf is really beautiful but it sure is impressive. The museums are gorgeous and free but everything else is so expensive you'll want to visit on foot if you don't want to pay 10£ per day in transports alone.

    Insider Tip:Walk! from St pancras station everything is at less than 40 minutes on foot

    There are so many things to do in London that you'd have to spend a lifetime here to see them all. I'd recommend at least a three day stay, but that still would be a very packed three days. There is always something exciting happening in the city, and everyone is very kind. Lots of sights to see and plenty of good places to eat as well. The pound is strong though, so it can get pricey quickly.

    Insider Tip:Buy an oyster card with unlimited trips. Worth the money, it's easier to get around this way and it works on the bus too!

    London kills the wallet

    London is the kind of city you have to go to if you're in Europe because everyone goes there. It's very overwhelming because it's just so big and there is so much to do and see. I'm not a city person, I prefer the country side and peace and quiet, but I enjoyed London.

    Insider Tip:Get to Buckingham Palace early. Like, very early if you want to be able to actually see the changing of the guard and not just the backs of other tourists heads. Also, if you don't know where to start your trip in London the palace is the right place. It's very easy to walk to the other main attractions from here. If you're claustrophobic, then avoid the Tube in the early morning and from 5-8pm at all costs. It gets very crowded when people are going to and from work.

    London was agreat city and very easy to get around with the tube (otherwise it would take forever to walk anywhere). Make sure to see all the main sites that it is famous for, and probably even a show or two.

    Insider Tip:Go to Cambden for the coolest bars. Buy the Oyster card if you are there for a few days, but for only one day the day pass is a better deal. Go to a show. The Globe Theater was an amazing, and extremely cheap, experience.
