London Travel Guide, United Kingdom
Home of kings and queens, a place of dreams and opulence, London is one of the biggest destinations in Europe. It has everything you would expect in a big metropolis and more. It has amazing architecture, great museums and attractions, beautiful gardens and open spaces, excellent shops, vibrant nightlife and a posh atmosphere. It is original and you can’t compare it with anything else.
London has the most evolved and comprehensive transport system in Europe and your visit will be a piece of cake. You can get anywhere you want fast and comfortable no matter what you choose. even if during high season it gets a bit crowded it efficiency is not to be doubted, you won’t have to wait for too long to get on your favorite means of transport. You can choose anything from the famous red bus, underground, railway, boat or typical London cab. London is a city made for visitors; everything is done to their comfort as millions visit it every year.
Children under 5 travel free on buses, Tube, DLR and Tramlink. And if you plan to visit most part of London in one day it is better to make the most of the transport facility and buy a Day Travelcard if you are alone or a Family Travelcard that is valid for 2 adults and up to 4 children travelling off-peak. If you plan to stay up to7 days it is better to buy a 7 Day Travelcard, you will save on your expenses. The Weekend Travelcard is suitable if you visit the city for the weekend.
So plan ahead and choose the best variant for you. You can buy them at any station, ticket outlets, or from the Travel Information Centres which is probably the best choice.
Even if London is one of the cities with most video surveillance cameras, watch out for your belongings in crowded places as that’s where pickpockets operate.
Tourism is highly developed and you don’t have to wander about what to do or where to go first, from the moment you arrive you can get tons of information from the many free brochures you can pick right from the airport or from the tourist information centre. You’ll get to know everything from accommodation possibilities to great places visit, eat and relax.
If we were to list all the attractions in London the list would be too long for you to follow so we limit yourself to some of them. Depending on what you are interested in you can choose to explore history, architecture, restaurants, shops or places of entertainment for kids or adults or maybe a bit of everything.
