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.

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.

“Don't stay in Wembley stay at London bridge and get the train Wembley is scruffy”
“If you at A concert sadly leave early as transport system is a no no later in evening”
“Over priced, for a good lookout of the city the sky garden is recommended and free of charge”
“This street is huge so if traveling to Oxford street by tube, go to Oxford circus station if Penny’s(primark) is your first shopping destination. For the centre of Oxford street it’s Bond street station you want. Can’t help with the very end of the street as we never made it that far.”
“One of the most beautiful areas. Must be visited during day and night time. Got the chance to witness a proposal ;) and the girl said Yes! ”
“As a singing paricipant in the London Male Welsh Choir Concert on October 13 in Royal Albert, it made for an experience I could never forget. We were one among fifteen choirs from six nations. Amazing organization and sn honor to be psrt of it. Royal Albert Hall is certainly one of many London treasures.”

“We went in summer on a British Holiday. Hot. Few bathrooms. Crowds of people. Fun to watch couples getting off that were just married! Marvelous to look at. Goes at a snail's pace.”
“Do take the tour. The Beef Eaters are wonderful tour guides. Bring the Tower history to life”
“They sell Harrods souvenirs at the airport duty free! Go visit the store, but buy souvenirs at the duty free and safe some money!”
Buy a all ticket which covers the attractions ie London Eye, madame tussauds If wanting to do tower etc, get a ticket which will b cheaper than £30 per time. We walked most places and kept off the tube when it was really busy
When travelling on the underground using the Oyster card even when the staff tell you not to tap the card on the way out I would as the looks like you have failed to do so and the card take more off the balance
What a city. Perhaps I lucked out on the weather, but it was everything I hoped it would be. Cider, extremely convenient and cheap/efficient travel on the tube. Incredible architecture, many access to parks (free) and simply a very beautiful and famous city everyone should try to visit once in their lives. I am so grateful I had as much time as I did to explore all that London has to offer.
London is uncomfortably crowded and impossible to get around in. Tube was so crowded i couldn't breathe and felt a panic attack coming on. Up top, buses crawled along in the congestion. It took 3 hours to get from Notting Hill to the Tower of London. It should have taken 28 mins.
London is unlike anywhere else in the UK. Fantastic restaurants, shopping, internationally acclaimed theatre and amazing museums. Lovely to stroll through any of the amazing parks or along the South Bank when the weather is good. You could explore all the different suburbs, let alone the central area for days.
Loaded with history, plenty of interesting places. Take advantage of free awesome museums. Buy the oyster card if you're staying a few days. Don't miss watching a show, I heard Hamilton is outstanding.
