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.

    Big city. We can find what you want. But life is very expensive. Too much expensive. It is raining like cats and dogs and everydays in october.

    Great weather in the fall! Crowded and bustling, this is one of my favorite cities. IT's got some great nooks and crannies and some wonderful big sights like St. Paul's Cathedral which shouldn't be missed.

    Insider Tip:Buy a weekly pass Oyster card. We kept having to top up and we wasted a lot of pounds doing so instead of getting a pass.

    Brilliant City

    What can one say that wouldn't have been said? The food is amazing, the bars and clubs and chill out areas in Hyde Park, all excellent.

    Insider Tip:Jamie Oliver's 'Recipease' is amazing.

    Expensive but Lovely

    London is by far my favorite town in Europe. I love the culture, the people, the sights, the food, I could go on and on But you need a lot of money to really enjoy it. Catch as many historical sights as possible, don't forget the galleries, try the local specialties and always be polite!

    Insider Tip:Get a London Pass in advance, if you visit more than 2 tourist attractions a day it's already paid for itself, Get a Visitor Oyster Card as well The national gallery is for free, and there are sometimes events on Trafalgar Square, check it out in advance Make sure to catch a show, Musical or Theatre, at the Tourist Island (Leicester Square) you'll get the cheapest tickets, short notice during the week Go to Borough Market for the best food and tastiest drinks

    I used to live in London

    I moved out when i was 12/13 and going back as an adult is fantastic. I get to see and enjoy all the things I didn't experience as a child. There is so much to do at all times of the day if you're willing to leave your comfort zone.

    Insider Tip:Buses are mostly cheaper that tubes when going long distances. Use the Citymapper app. Best thing ever.
