London is one of the most cosmopolitan and important cities in the whole of Europe. Its streets combine tradition, history and modernity and its cultural programme is second to none in Europe thanks to its many museums, concert halls and theatres. Also, its parks and monuments make the British capital one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, so renting apartments in London is a must for all travellers at least once in their lifetime.
Must-see in London
The symbol of London is definitely Big Ben . a clock tower located in Westminster and part of Parliament. Not very far away is the London Eye. a huge Ferris wheel which brings some of the best views in the city, although The Shard is the tallest building in the EU and its views are also truly stunning. The Queen lives in Buckingham Palace one of the most emblematic landmarks of the city, just like the Tower Bridge . St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey conform the most important religious landmarks in the city whilst nobody can leave the city without going on a London bus or taking a photo of themselves on the lions in Trafalgar Square or in front of the neon lights in Piccadilly Circus. Visiting the National Gallery or the British Museum are also musts for visitors in London.
Neighbourhoods in London
London is an enormous city with plenty to see but there are neighbourhoods that are worth seeing more than others. Big Ben and Parliament are in
Westminster. just like Westminster Abbey. Kensington and Mayfair are the most exclusive spots in London whilst in Soho you can enjoy great nightlife. In Bloomsbury there is great architectonic beauty and many museums, a contrast with Camden and Notting Hill. famous for their markets and carnivals as well as their cool little apartments by days in London. Covent Garden is a place for art whilst The City is where all the skyscrapers are and the financial centre of the city.
When to visit London
It rains a lot in England so the best time to visit the country is in summer. when the chances of rain diminish and the temperatures go out thanks to the appearance of the sun, for once. An English summer doesn’t have the insufferable high temperatures of other places in Europe, which makes it the ideal time to do tourism in London..
Getting around London
Public transport in London is emblematic and you must try at least once a trip in one of its black cabs or red buses. although in truth the easiest way to get around is on the Tube. London has five airports, Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, City and Southend. which connect the city with the whole world. Its tourist bus is also comfortable to see the city in.
Festivals in London
New Year’s Eve in Trafalgar Square is a deeply-rooted London tradition, just like the Chelsea Flower Show in March or Notting Hill Carnival in August. Also, don’t miss out on the Boat Race between Cambridge and Oxford along the river Thames in April.
