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 is amazing

    London is an amazing spot, but its crazy how expensive everything is. The Euro to Pound rate doens't make it any better. Will come back at any time.

    Insider Tip:Shopping in Camden is a absolute must.

    London is great

    I really enjoyed London (partly because of the English...). Most people you walk across in the street come off as unfriendly, but when you sit down in a pub, everyone becomes your best friend. More than enough different things to do and the public transportation is A+.

    Insider Tip:See everything !!!

    I have been here for a few months and there is still so much I haven't seen. There is always something going on in the centre which is free. It is a beautiful city.

    Insider Tip:Make sure you get an oyster, get a tube map from a worker at any tube station as it is very helpful. When travelling around the centre catch buses, so much nicer than the tube and you get to see a lot more, plus its cheaper. If staying at a hostel pick up the free map which has the information of a free walking tour, go on the free walking tour it is very good.

    One of my favourite cities

    I love London. I've been all around the world and I'm always drawn to London. Lots to do and see, one of the best metro systems in the world. Found folks to be friendly and helpful. Great shopping, easy access to food from all around the world, and just very tourist-friendly in general. I was traveling alone but I never felt unsafe.

    Insider Tip:To save money stay outside of the city centre. The tube is so easy to use, it's worth saving a couple hundred dollars on accommodations. Definitely check out the WB Harry Potter Studio Tour if you're a fan of the series - book ahead, you can't buy tickets at the door. Check out the Borough Market for lunch and take a bread making class in the afternoon.
