What to expect in London
Lively London is a vast city filled with postcard views from big red buses and Buckingham Palace to St Pauls Cathedral and Big Ben but there is much more to London than the usual tourist sights. To fully experience London, you need to ‘become a Londoner’. Shopaholics need look no further than Oxford Street and Covent Garden for fashions, or bustling Portobello and Camden Markets for quirky and vintage items and Borough Market for tantalising local food stalls. As well as the architecture, history and culture comes in the form of hundreds of art galleries and museums dotted around the city, including the Natural History Museum, Tate Modern, Hayward Gallery and the Barbican to name just a few. To retreat from the crowds London’s parks are second to none; beautiful Hyde Park, Hampstead Heath, Victoria Park and Regents Park are filled with lakes, lush trees, grassy lawns and winding paths making these a tranquil place to be and a wonderful day out for families. Self-proclaimed hedonists can throw themselves into London’s clubs, poetry readings, open-mic nights, karaoke, cocktail bars, micro-breweries, cheesy discos, live music venues, theatre, ballet and opera every night of the week. London is a non-stop year of concerts and festivals too. There is street entertainment, world culture, world food, pop-up dining, open air cinemas, ice rinks, breakfast cafes, alfresco drinking and big red buses, that will thrill whether you go North, South, East or West.
London is a fabulous city all year round. Winter brings Christmas markets while summers bring canal-side drinking, alfresco dining, music, beer festivals and outdoor markets. Autumn and spring see the city’s beautiful parks burst with colour, natural beauty and wildlife.
The capital is not a budget destination however thanks to the diversity of food and accommodation; it can be done on a smaller budget. Many of the major sights charge an entry fee however most museums, galleries, monuments and parks are free to visit. Transport is the most expensive part of a trip to London however if the weather is nice, it is a good idea to hire a bicycle which costs just £2* for 24 hours. Breakfasts range in price but can be found from £5*, lunches from around £7* and dinner for two with wine from approximately £35*. A coffee will cost from £1* and a pint of beer from £4*.
