London's rich history and mix of cultures have made it one of the most visited cities in the world. Its distinct boroughs are like small cities, each one offering something different from the last.
London's iconic skyline is an eclectic combination of instantly recognizable landmarks, from the historic Tower of London to ultra-modern skyscrapers like The Shard and 20 Fenchurch – more commonly known as "The Walkie-Talkie." Walking through the Square Mile immerses you into the original Roman settlement, with parts of the ancient defensive wall still visible. You'll also find some of the London's coziest (and oldest) pubs there, like Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, frequented by Charles Dickens and Mark Twain.
For art lovers, head to the West End's world-class theaters, as well as the concert halls throughout Camden, Soho, and Shoreditch. You'll also find countless galleries and museums around the city, like the free British Museum, Natural History Museum, and the National Gallery.
Among all the impressive architecture and endless landmarks, it's easy to forget how green London is. The city consists of 47% public green space including 3,000 parks. The most popular are Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and Green Park, but it's worth venturing out to places like Richmond to walk alongside 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 connections, as well as private shuttle services.

Google maps tries to take you over the road about but the hotel is at the right hand side of shepherd’s Bush underground exit . Which is an excellent location and then behind the underground there is a new shopping mall W12 with designers , m&s John Lewis and dime great restaurants leading upto mall . Location great fir getting around London on the underground
Getting busier everywhere but you can still socially distance if you want to. So much to see in London and you can minimize travel on public transport by walking between so many of the points of interest, through the lovely parks, along the river etc.
Proximity to a park is very important when travelling with kids under 10 years, especially in summer months. Hyde park has the Princess Diana Memorial playground and the kids love the sand pit and the pirate ship. Busaba and Wagamama are my favourite restaurants in London while Amorino's makes the best gelato in my opinion. I will stay outside central London so I can get an accommodation with bigger space for the kids to run around
I love London. Most of the people are very kind and will assist you on your journey. Yet, I went to the GWR Train Station Office to purchase tickets for the Underground and the LNER train to go up north and was ripped off pretty bad. I paid 88 gbp and a man on the train next to me on the trip said he paid 8 gbp for the same trip. He said he bought his in advance but still that's a huge cost differential. Cabs are expensive but they are nowhere as bad as here in New York City where I live. My hope is to buy property in England so yes I love it.
The hotel is completely under staffed. There is no cleaning or housekeeping. No one answers when you call reception, housekeeping, concierge, etc. They keep saying that every 3 days there will be housekeeping but we are now on day 5 of our stay and no one has cleaned once! They keep promising that they will clean today every time we ask, but no one comes to clean. This is completely unacceptable
Always lots to do and see. Make sure you book the main attractions in plenty of time and dont be late. Getting around on the tube is fine, taxis are a bit pricey but, its what you expect in London really.
