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.

Love London. Excellent!!! If you haven't ever been to London or it's been a while since you last visited; I would highly recommend booking a cheeky little trip away. The Perfect City; that has it all!
Use the tube is a good way to get around remember to tap on and off its cheaper London has lots to offer plan your day know what you want to see if your on a Day trip book your hotel out side and use the transportation I used a late bus after the show from the O2 and I felt safe I travel alone the buses do not take money tap on and just get off people do talk just ask the right question but remember that most people are also visitors street vendors are helpful just buy something .for shopping Central line to Oxford Circus that's the red line on the map from there you can get to all the well known streets
Way way too crowed more people than i have ever seen in my life! Too too many smokers. It is a hard city. congested. You are on your own. The English people do NOT like to help tourists! Its like a swarm of ants. locusts. total chaos! Hold on and hide valuables no joke. especially women and purses. cell phones. Tourists only ones who wear a mask. It is a COVID CIRCUS in progress. I am not kidding. The Grand and Splendor will be found behind the walls of those "historical" Buildings. Solo travelers beware. Good Luck!
Incredible vibrant city. The London is the same or even more interesting than before the pandemic. My favorite places in London are City of London, west end, Soho, Covent Garden, Camden Town. Is interesting to eat in Covent Garden, seven dial market, Burger& Lobster or around small boutiques in Camden Town market. Is very easy to travel in London by public transport using a Oyster card or your own debit/ credit card.
Tours of The Globe, St Pauls and the Houses of Parliament were excellent. Food in the restaurants and cafes outside the hotel was very good, often excellent value for money. Travel on public transport was easy and cheap.
I am living in Cyprus and I like to travell and London is my favourite city for now It is very clean, well organised with good transport sistem and impressing architecture. And I really cannot find a reason why not to like it The city has an atmosphere of celebration, royalty and education. If I could moove here now I would do it.
