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.

    Never feel boring in London

    London is one of the best cities I have visited. You never feel boring walking around London. It is inclusion of business, history, architecture, museum, park, church, art and live.

    Insider Tip:check the open and close hour of the places you are going to visit. Normally it is shorter on Sunday, like the shops and supermarkets close at around 6PM.

    Buzzling city with people everywhere.

    Only spend 1 night there. Its definitely a great city to visit with lots of museums and attractions.

    Insider Tip:For the Buckingham palace change of guards, please be there before 11am to get the best viewing location.

    London baby?

    Is an expensive big city. If your going on vacations you should probably skip it unless you just want a picture of Big Ben to put on your instagram or facebook account.

    Insider Tip:But if you're there you should just spend your time in Shoreditch, it pays of a little bit.

    Very expensive city

    The city is super expensive! Prepare for that before coming here. It is very multicultural too. There are way too many immigrants who live in closed communities. There are some districts I wouldn't recommend you going

    Insider Tip:Go and see it yourself

    Thoughts On London

    London is a beautiful city !! We loved our stay there so much and didn't want to leave. The people are so friendly, we always had people offering us help if we looked a little lost and were always willing to give us directions if we asked. And the food is amazing ! . Will definitely be going back and exploring some more.

    Insider Tip:Get a tube map from one of the stations. Don't worry about missing a train they come every few minuets the most we waited was for like 4 minuets. Bond street is a good stop to get off and see lots of shops and its a short walk to all the circuses and Soho where we spent a lot of time (eg. Piccadilly Circus). Black Garden Tattoo on Dury Lane (Dury lane also has a couple cool retro shops) is an awesome place if you're keen on some tattoos. Walk ins welcome.
