London's inherent uniqueness and mix of cultures have made it one of the most visited cities in the world. Its diverse bundle of boroughs are often like mini cities in their own right, with each one offering something different to the last.
London's iconic skyline is an eclectic combination of instantly recognisable landmarks, from the historic Tower of London to the ultra-modern skyscrapers of The Shard and 20 Fenchurch (better known as 'The Walkie-Talkie'). A walk through the ‘Square Mile’ immerses you in the original Roman settlement, with parts of the ancient defensive wall still visible. You'll also find some of the London's cosiest (and oldest) pubs around there, such as Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, a former haunt of Charles Dickens and Mark Twain.
For lovers of the arts, look no further than the world-class theatres of London's West End and the live music venues of Camden, Soho and Shoreditch. You'll also find endless galleries and museums dotted around, such as the free-to-visit British Museum, Natural History Museum and the National Gallery.
Amongst all the impressive architecture and endless points of interest, it's easy to forget how green London is. 47% of the city is made up of public green space, including 3,000 parks. The most popular spots include Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Green Park, but it's worth venturing out to places like Richmond where you can walk amongst roaming wild deer.
London is served by several major airports, including Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Stansted, Luton and Southend. Travel is made easy by the extensive public transport links, as well as private coach services.

I am extremely angry with the customer service I received , I didn’t even manage to stay in the room I paid for the receptionist wasn’t the best help either I don’t think I would be recommending this to any until I’m fully compensated for there over booking
London is one of my favourite cities. The food is good and prices in pubs are low.The mix of ethnics in London is unbelievable. The tube is a fantastic way to get around. Nightlife might be an experience of a lifetime... Everyone needs to ride the tube, go skyhigh on The Eye, go inside the Tower of London and the London Bridge.
Expensive, no value for money, a lot of workers from eastern europe dont give s f€ck about quality or service. I think they are being hired cause they are cheap labour, but they are not making Brittain great....
Ripoff landlords who refuse to refund your money even when not supplying advertised accommodation. This is illegal behaviour under UK law. No refunds offered due to Covid19, also illegal.. Booking.com useless in helping.
Absolutely no social distancing. Everywhere I went, crowds of local persons standing around right next to each other, as if there wasn't a problem. Wrong attitude and it could come back to haunt you.
Seeing all the shows/plays. Attended a few concerts also (won't see any of these for a while). Bus and tube transport very handy. Plenty of pubs to chill out in. Lots of boutique shops some with good bargains.
