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.

    A Cold Story

    Well lets see... Staff at check in was ok. London was seeing one of the coldest days. My room was the coldest room i have stayed. No heater was on,despite the time of the night. The windows was typical wooden ones and the curtain could not warm in any way the room. I came in 20:30 and it was freezing cold in the room. How i was supposed to stay in a freezing room? Early check out difficult.

    Insider Tip:If it is cold you better stay else where or you will have to find your own way to warm up your self. Area was good.Close to transportation and bus stations. Or if you are a spurs fan its next to the football stadium.

    I have been to london once before but this is first time by myself, i found London quite easy to get around once you had been on the London underground(which I was nervous about cause I hate closed spaces like that), i actually surprised my self that I liked the underground. I would suggest if your going to London to get an oyster card I did not know about this till the saturday evening of my trip so it was not worth getting because to get the underground on a few journey's costs £4.80 single.

    Insider Tip:get an oyster card and stay close to underground if possible if you are a first timer to London. Also make sure you have underground ticket/oyster card for buses cause they don't allow you on with change.

    London in 2 days

    I did london in 2 days and so can you. I saw (almost) everything and partied as well. I primarily walked everywhere so I could see whatever I wanted and "pull over" if I pleased. Free royal tour: big ben/parliament, westminster abby, Buckingham Palace, ETC. London Eye, Tower of London/Tower Bridge, walked along the Thames, St. Pauls ETC. SOHO/Covent Garden great areas.

    Insider Tip:Day tube passes, learn areas before coming, Free tours are great (but don't you tip your guide!). On a budget? do ONE super touristy thing (I did London Eye, awesome). Use yelp to find the best food for the best price. WIFI IS EVERYWHERE!!! Don't be afraid to meet the locals.
