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.

    Loving London

    London is an amazing city, I am currently living here and am never bored. Although the weather can be quite miserable, it's a well-known thing and to come here expecting a week straight of Sun would only mean you'll be disappointed. There's an abundance of things to do in London and the tubes make everything so incredibly accessible. Everyone needs to see London!

    Insider Tip:Contrary to what you might think, being a major city, London does not have 24hr transport (bar a few bus services) so make sure you check when the last train is and where it's last stop is!! Trains also don't run early Sunday mornings.

    Go to London. DUH.

    Everything it's cracked up to be. Great vibes, culture, sights, bars. Very expensive, but very worth it.

    Insider Tip:The tube is great, but try walking or renting bikes. Saves some money and gives a better sense of the city as a whole.

    Insider Tip:Buy and oyster card or have apple pay on your phone as it will make you tube experience 1000x better.

    There are tons of things to do in London. If you are buying London City Pass, make sure you plan your site seeing properly as otherwise you will barely use the card. I think the London Pass booklet tries to mislead you into going to free sites first listing paid sites that card covers later on. So use your brain and plan your visit to attractions using the card. Also, the pass includes hop on and hop off, but the catch is that you have obtain a ticket at one of the offices first requiring commut

    Insider Tip:Plan your trip accordingly, as there are plenty of things to do. Buying frozen food in supermarkets like Tesco is great value for tasty foods like curry and pot pie if you have a place to microwave it. You can exchange dollars to pounds at a post office for low fee. Great restaurant in East London called Tayyabs - must try!

    London is mega

    like any huge city it can be difficult to know where to go and if you end up in the centre you are likely to end up going to some pretty shit chain pubs. I think the places to go drinking are Camden, soho, Shoreditch, Hoxton, brick lane, Brixton. London is expensive so be prepared!

    Insider Tip:my favourite places are Gordons wine bar, the new evaristo club, the French house, the queen of hoxton
