What You'll Love About London

Jun 4, 2008
London has a long history dating back to at least 67 AD when there are definite mentions of a flourishing city existing. It was established by the Romans, but later taken over by the Saxons (when the Romans pulled out) and then by the Normans. It has a history rich in religion and royalty, as well as plagues and destruction.

London is made up of two cities, "The City of London" and "Westminster." Today, the West End is considered to be the center of London and the East End is a poor industrial area when the working class lives. London is Europe's largest city and is made up of immigrants from across the globe.

Due to London's long and rich history, the fact that it is home to a current monarchy and due to the fact that it is a large cosmopolitan city, there are a substantial selection of attractions for visitors to enjoy. There are museums and galleries, parks and palaces, just to mention a few types of the sight-seeing wonders that London has to offer. Begin your trip with a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament. Follow that with a visit to London's public art collections which are known to be among the best in the world. These can be found in the Tate Modern, the Tate Britain and the National Galleries.

Hampton Court is one of the most stunning attractions in Europe and a trip to London would not be complete without a visit to this site. It was Henry VIII's original palace and gardens, but it has been improved upon by numerous monarchs. Not as impressive, but also worth visiting are Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. Westminster Abbey is also stunning.

The medieval inns of the Inns of Court are interesting to see. Within the city, you will find some remaining architectural delights from Victorian London. There are many tours available, but the tour of the City Churches is an excellent choice.

There are many large and beautiful parks in London or a walk or boat ride along the river are a real treat. You can wander through some of the city's quiet Georgian squares or through what appear to be a collection of villages. London is the place to visit the theater. The high quality and low prices of their shows make it a must.

London has a vast collection of holiday accommodation options. There are many luxurious five star hotels. If that is beyond your budget, it is easy to find cheaper accommodation options in London.

The competition among bed and breakfasts has recently raised their standards and you can find many good quality B&Bs around the city. A rental apartment will allow you more freedom and privacy than a hotel.

You can find luxury apartments with a maid service, to cheaper and smaller apartments. These can be rented for one night, while others may have minimum length stays. Apartments are available throughout the city. Hostels are also common and during the summer months, many universities open their student halls to visitors.
