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 unexpectedly great

    I was avoiding it, but I had to use it as a transport hub and it took a few days but I really like this city I think. If you go and find some parts dull just try a different part of town. I think there's 32 boroughs, NYC has 5 so it's very likely you'll find something you'll love. Touristy stuff, I liked Parliment, the guards, and the British Museum. There's stereotypes about the food being bad in London but that's complete Bullcrap. Brits are great at conversation I think so the people are cool

    London was cool

    I honestly didn't care for London before coming here. I only came here because it has flights to many other cities in Europe. London is very large, like 32 boroughs if I'm not mistaken... NYC has 5. I didn't really care for the sight seeing too much. The British museum is awesome, the archaeologist got all the best stuff so I wouldn't skip it. It's large so you might have trouble with night life if you're in the wrong spot initially, but keep exploring. I had fun and the food is good there.

    Glad I went?

    Since this was my first stop from the US, it was nice to go somewhere that spoke my language to start the trip. However, that turns out to be a lot of places in Europe. I will absolutely come back at some point, but I feel like 3 days and $400 only got me to the point of being able to say I went there without actually experiencing the place. I'm definitely coming back at some point, but this is a place where you need to drop a lot of money to actually take it in, even with careful research.

    Southbank

    There is always something fun going on around Southbank. And Tate Modern and the Globe are always great stops too.

    Insider Tip:Wahacca is the best place for burritos and a beer along the river. Amazing!!

    Museums museums museums

    World class museums. My favourite is the Victoria and Albert Museum. So many amazing pieces throughout this beautiful museum.

    Insider Tip:The museum is free but some of the special exhibits have a charge. They are beautifully done exhibits and if it is something that interests you, it is probably worth the extra cost.
