London Holidays

If you were forced to pick one city to be a tourist in for a whole year, London might very well be your best choice. In London, you'd probably run into a citizen of just about every country on the planet and you'd eat a good deal of their cuisines, as well. You'd have access to the art and antiquities of both Britain and the world at the British ... Read more
Museum or the National Gallery or a host of other places, endless performances (including Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre), unruly sporting events, and first-class shopping. When it rains (which is less often than most people think), dive into a historic pub for pie and mash or hop on one of London's famed double-decker buses. The public transportation system alone warrants a visit to this worldly city. (Hint: Try Route 15 for a local's view of many sights: Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the Tower of London.) London is more like the crossroads for, rather than the center of, the world these days. The timeless city effortlessly manages to blend international culture with British pomp in a metropolis of 14 million (the largest in the EU).

Weather

London’s mild climate, with temperatures rarely below 45F (8C) in December and January, make it less intimidating than, say, Finland, as a winter destination. The best time to go is between May and September, ... Read more
however, as long summer hours see the sun set close to 10 pm and relatively warm temperatures (up to 75F or 24C) make for great sightseeing. The changeable sky means it’s always a good idea to dress in layers and pack an umbrella. If you do find yourself in the Big Smoke over the winter, take advantage of the packed theatre season, free museums, and cozy pubs to stay warm.

Get a hotel or rental AirBnB in a suburb. The train system is awesome, so save yourself the extra money and don't stay in a shoebox for $300/night.

There's no city quite like it. If you're visiting England, don't miss London.

Amazing city with so much history. Easy to get around for how massive it is. Food EVERYWHERE. Adventure everywhere. And free stuff to do all over the place.

I love all things British, so London was heaven to me. I stayed in a cheap Airbnb in Elephant & Castle where I could easily get around by bus and tube. Being on a budget, I brought a lot of protein bars and instant coffee. I also found lots of free things to do in London. I could have easily spent a day at The Victoria and Albert museum and the Museum of Natural History and The Tate is great.
This is such a exciting city with so much to see. I hope I can go back and explore it more in depth.

It was a pleasant city but I would love to explore it alone sometimes instead of in a group

I really recommend visiting Camden Town and it’s easy to travel there by underground.
