London is one of the most-visited capital cities in the world and a top destination for lovers of architecture, music, art, theater and history. There is so much happening in the city that it is easy to become overwhelmed by the choice of accommodation, restaurants and sights in the fear that you will miss something to thrill the sensations.
Best Locations in London
Happily, this guide will offer you the best locations in the city and will enable you to get the most out of your trip, regardless of whether it is for one night or two weeks. By planning right, you can ensure your trip is one of laughter, merriment and wonder in equal measures.
There are hundreds of extravagant hotels across the city, but unfortunately they are incredibly pricey and often host a fairly poor service. An exceedingly popular alternative to expensive hotels in cities is apartment rentals. Staying in a rented apartment like Native Bankside will give you a chance to relax after a long day of sightseeing, and it offers you the opportunity to experience privacy while you are staying in some of London’s top historic buildings set in magnificent surrounds.
When you are staying in London, it is advisable to research which sights you are interested in visiting and then book your accommodation to fit with your interests. There is something for everyone in the city and highlights not to miss include the Victoria and Albert Museum, which specialises in fashion and hosts many expensive exhibitions, and city’s iconic Imperial War Museum, which gives visitors a meaningful insight into the county’s military history. If you are looking for a theatrical experience you will never forget, look no further than the ‘West End’ – with shows every night of the week.
If you want to find the most authentic restaurants in the city, it is worth travelling across London to more diverse areas. Restaurants that are located next to London Bridge or parliament will not be as tasty as those in London’s eclectic Brick Lane or Southall. Regardless of the cuisine you are after, it is guaranteed that you will find it in London. If you are interested in going to one of the city’s haute cuisine options, such as Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant, it is necessary to book before your visit.
There are some eccentric bars located across the city, from sipping a drink inside a cave made of ice to being “prescribed” a cocktail by a doctor in a speakeasy-style bar, if you want nightlife you are in the right place for it. And don’t forget, if you get a drunken pang of hunger in the early hours and fast food does not suffice, there are innumerable late-night eateries that aren’t catering towards the kebab-loving – you can find great fast-food options.
From bars to bookshops, London provides a wonderful experience for all its visitors. There are so many beautiful attractions and high-quality galleries that you’ll never be short of things to do and, by staying in a historic location, you can even relax in your residence and soak up the charms of London through your window.
