What to expect in London
London is a city filled to bursting with iconic sights from Buckingham Palace and Big Ben to the Crown Jewels, Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Hyde Park. London can be a designer shopping break, a destination in which to dance until dawn, a place to trawl vibrant markets filled with flowers, bric a brac and artisan foods or somewhere to stroll through vast green parks, explore art and history from the grandeur of the Natural History Museum to the contemporary Tate Modern. Astonishing and eye-catching architecture from St Pauls Cathedral to the shimmering ‘Shard’ offer ample to gaze at as you stroll the streets of this exciting city. Concerts, festivals, live music, street entertainment, world culture and food, pop-up dining, open air cinemas, ice rinks, Christmas markets, West End musicals, micro breweries, breakfast cafes, alfresco drinking, big red buses, Portobello Market – the list of London’s attractions is literally never ending, meaning that one visit will never be enough!
Exciting London is a great city to visit at any time of year, whether in winter when Christmas markets, ice rinks and festive lights bring the city to life in the festive season or the warm dry summers when canal-side drinking, alfresco dining, music, beer festivals and outdoor markets are just some of the wonderful outdoor activities to enjoy. Autumn and spring are when the many and beautiful green parks like Hyde Park, Richmond, Park, Victoria Park, Hampstead Heath and St James Park burst with natural beauty and wildlife. The West End offers spectacular shows all year round.
All of this choice comes at a price and being the capital London is not the cheapest city to visit, however, with a huge choice of accommodation including hostels and B&Bs and luxury hotels, there is something for most budgets. Eating out is much cheaper in areas away from central London and there are always fast food and supermarkets to keep costs down. Transport is the biggest yet most essential expense in London. As an alternative, if the weather is good, city bike hire costs just £2* for 24 hours. Many major attractions have an entry fee however entry to London’s parks, museums and most galleries is free of charge. Many hotels include breakfast in their stay which is worth taking advantage of. Dinner in an average restaurant will cost anywhere from £14* for one. A cafe coffee starts from £2* while a pint will be around £4.50*.
