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.

    Great, but expensive

    I love London, but it is quite an expensive city, especially after places like Prague and Budapest. I'm glad I went, but couldn't afford more than a weekend. If you have a larger budget, there are tons of places to eat and shows to see. Also, sight seeing is free!

    Insider Tip:It's worth it to get an oyster card!

    Beautiful, busy, expensive

    People here are constantly rushing. This is a beautiful place full of history and national pride. But please, never stand in front of busy londoners at the tubes, trying to figure out your turist map - they are alwasy in a hurry. One of the best public transportation systems in the world, take your time on the double-decked buses to look around the city. I'd recommend line 24 (runs around most of the turistic sites). PLEASE visit the British Museum. It was my favorite of all time.

    Insider Tip:Get an Oyster card as soon as you land. It's valid on most forms of public transportation, and it will be cheaper to purchase a travelpass for the duration of your stay. Look up details on tfl.uk. And.... be prepared to spend lots here. It is an extremely expensive city (and queen's money isn't cheap)

    I fell in love with London

    So much history and so much to do! 6 days were barely enough to do the basics. Vibrant city with awesome people :D So expensive though -_-

    Insider Tip:Shoreditch is worth discovering, and learning about the Old City of London Walking Tour.

    Fantastic

    It was great to stay there, very nice counter, clean rooms, nice people. The price is very cheap, it is located a little bit far from city center though, If I travel London again, definitely I will stay there !

    Insider Tip:Try to talk other people, you can make good friends in there!
