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

    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.

    London is a city that ALWAYS has something on at any given time for ANYONE. I could spend weeks there and never once get bored, you need to google search these things but they are always out there.

    In spite of the weather, it is still my favourite city in the world. Amazing shopping, so many places to see, funny neighbourhood from Picadilly to Camden and from Kensington to Greenwich. A myth.

    Insider Tip:Best vegetarian restaurant, cheap and cosy in Greenwich at Royal Teas.

    Tourist Town (but that's okay!)

    Of course, we came to London to see all of the major attractions--Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, and Buckingham Palace to name a few. We had a great time! Things tend to be a bit pricey, though.

    Insider Tip:Go to the British Library! Plan ahead and see what exhibitions are on. But even if nothing strikes your fancy, it's worth a visit for all of the free galleries and exhibitions they have!

    Loved it here but it's sooooooooo expensive, especially because I'm from the states. So big and so much to do and see. Great people, great public transportation.

    Insider Tip:Though they may claim it, It's not a city that never sleeps because the tubes stop a little past midnight and your only option is the bus for public transit. And the bus takes forever to come and the routes take forever.
