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.

    Standard vs Alternative

    London has plenty of things to see and do, many of which are very famous. If you are after something a little different try Googling 'Alternative London' for street art tours.

    Insider Tip:The two hour walking tour with Alternative London is well worth your time. Like all 'Free' tours, pay what you think it is worth at the end of the tour!

    Dream city for a lot of people, nothing else to say! Wonderful view especially in good weather (if you are lucky enough!)

    Insider Tip:English tea is a must! Tube is expensive! Fish and chips from the restaurant Poppy's are the best!

    A wonderful town for a family vacation

    There was a lot of things to do in London for all ages. We were as much fascinated by the luxury interiors of Harrods, as well from the old buildings and the history. A must do was our visit on the London Eye.

    Insider Tip:The colourful market of the East End

    just stayed for one night. its a great city so there's always something to do and something going on. been to west london and central before, but wen't east for first time this time. pretty different vibe but i liked it. good bars and less touristy trash.

    Insider Tip:boxpark shopping mall made of shipping containers is pretty cool but a bit expensive i guess now that the big brands have moved in. still wortha look.

    London is a fantastic city, that's why I keep coming back! Whether it's sports, music, history or food, it's all there in one well connected area. Yes, it's expensive in comparison to other capitals and the British weather may try to dampen your spirits, but once you're past that, you will fall in love with the place. All the clichés are well deserved; West End shows, the magnanimity of it's buildings and more art galleries and museums than you can shake a stick at.

    Insider Tip:-Don't over-rely on the tube, if it's less than two stops then you'll enjoy yourself more by walking. -London is DIY friendly so don't bother with tours, most attractions are more fun when explored using your own initiative.
