London is always on the top list of the most visited cities around the world. It draws the tourists’ attention like a magnet at any time of the year.

What is London for people? The place where everything is happening; a melting pot of cultures and hundreds of languages; a mix of royalty and classics with dingy and damp backstreets; a place that is enfolded with mystery and history. London welcomes everyone who is willing to see it, letting them discover all the gems and secrets.

What are the cornerstones of an unforgettable trip to London?

         1. Transport

The moment you enter the airport, you are in the middle of a huge transport hub. It looks like a perfectly-organized anthill, with no chance for errors. To experience all the perfection and flawless work of the airport and airlines, it’s worth opting for London Business Class Flights, as they will give access to lounge zones and other premium benefits complementing the whole

impression.

Moving within the city line and outside is a breeze because public transport covers literally every possible spot in the city. London Underground looks like a city under a city, with 11 lines and 272 stops. The hustle and bustle are always there – from the early morning till late night.

         2. Accommodation

The hospitality of London includes the variety of places to stay in. From the luxurious and posh hotels like The Savoy or Connaught to more modest but still attractive hostels and cheap hotels. A basic price for a tourist is 80-100 GBP with the basic set of amenities.

         3. Sights

London is a treasure trove of places to see. Even if there’s no specific plan, there is always something to see. The main thing to consider – the duration of your holiday stay. If you want to see the landmarks like London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Wetminster Abbey, etc.,  be ready for long lines. It will be a good idea to book the tickets online, for the date when they are available.

How to catch the spirit of London?

Walking tours

Either alone or with a company, walking is the key to the city. No city will open its heart to those who don’t see it on foot. There are always free walking tours around the city center, which let you see the major sites and show some spots to check out later. Every simple walk in London will seem like another excursion because there’s always something worth attending. And don’t forget to look up and not miss the stunning architecture.

Museums

London is like a huge hub of museums with world-class museums inside. The Tate, the British Museum, the National Gallery, the Historical Museum, the Natural History Museum (it’s a home for specimens collected by Charles Darwin), etc. The listing is endless and the time spent there is as well.

Markets

If you want to feel the true spirit of the city, visit the London markets. Numerous stalls and goods, international food for any taste, and people, people, people. It’s an ideal place to grab a bite and watch people.

Portobello Road, Borough Market, Camden Market, Greenwich Market – every place will offer you something new.

Theatres

When thinking about London, theatres spring up in our mind first, typically because of Shakespeare, a playwright who just contributes to the overall mystery of a place. In the long list of theatres, the Globe theatre is the first to be visited, because of its history.

Parks and Streets

Having a good plan helps to structure the trip yet some loosening can bring some fun as well. It’s worth just hanging around the green zones, parks, and squares, to see how people live, what they do, what are their habits, and just to have some rest after a long day of touring.

 4. Food

Street food as well as restaurant meals are worth trying. Fish and chips, Yorkshire Pudding, 5 o’clock tea, Chicken Tikka, Kebab  – as the population of London are multicultural, the food on offer is incredibly diverse. Long walks will definitely lead you to a new stall or a cafe every day, in order to try local cuisines.

5. Budget

London is never cheap. Planning a trip there when having a limited budget is not a good idea. There are definitely lots of free options, but that’s a different experience, it will look like smelling the food without getting to taste it.

The main four categories to spend money on:

 

  • Sights – the majority of the tickets are quite costly, starting with 20 GPD and more.
  • Public transport is another category of expense. London is divided into zones – the further you move from the center, the more you need to pay for transport.
  • Hotels and hostels will require 100+ GDP per night, depending on the location and its rating.
  • Food

 

London is the city of dreams, going there is like fulfilling a lifetime goal for many tourists. With all its diversity and multiculturalism, it quickly steals the hearts of people, becoming the benchmark for all upcoming trips to other cities. The attractiveness of London will leave nobody indifferent, maybe that’s the reason why the tourist flow is growing steadily.
