London has nearly every type of accommodation on offer, from 5 star luxuries to B and Bs and youth hostels.

Within the central London area, head for Oxford street, Knightbridge, Tottenham Court Road for some great shopping. Outside central London, but still in easy reach, include Lakeside and Blue water. There are also major shopping areas at places like Bromley, Croydon, Ealing, Harrow, Uxbridge, and many other places, which are all in easy reach of central London.

If you were to make a map of the world based on the restaurants available in London, India would be detailed down to the centimetre. Likewise the rest of the EU and Asia, the Middle East and half a hundred other places besides. On any map made like this, however, there would be massive gaps south of the United States labelled Here Be Monsters and the like. The fact is, England boasts about as many Mexican and Latin American restaurants as active volcanoes.

London is today one of the worlds leading business, financial and cultural centres and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the major global cities.

Record high temperatures of up to 38 were recorded in different parts of London on 10 August 2003. The coolest month is January with February on average the driest month. Snow is relatively uncommon, particularly because heat from the urban area can make London hotter than the surrounding areas in winter. However light snowfall is seen on some days most winters.
