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.

    The Lion King Musical

    Overall the city of London has a ton to offer. Yes it's a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. I love going into London for the variety of food available and just the atmosphere. If you've never seen Lion King the Musical I would definitely recommend going.

    Insider Tip:Overall the London is very safe. Take a minute to enjoy the musicians all around the Tube. :) Bars and pubs close early... At least the places I went to were making last calls at 11:45 O_O Yes, it is part of England so bring an umbrella even if it said it's not going to rain. Because it will!

    Casual and Fun

    I was only in London for two days since I spent some time in Oxford beforehand, which I highly recommend if you are a little overwhelmed by London. I didn't do much per say, but I walked around all the sites and I had a super time just absorbing the sites for what they were. I did this both at night and during the day. I am going back to London based on my few days there if that says anything to the feel good vibes of the city.

    Insider Tip:Go to Nando's and eat some spicy chicken! Random, but as an American studying in Europe, it is super hard to actually find spicy food. It's also fun and silly to try a local chain restaurant. Also, take the time to walk London. It is big, but it is nice to walk and see some things and save 4 pounds by not taking the Tube.

    Lots to see! Good public transport though so easy to get around - however, the tube finishes fairly early at night. Each market has a best day to go - look them up!

    Insider Tip:Take a day trip down the river to Greenwich - there's more to see than just the meridian!
