  • In that city spent the early David Bowie first visited. I heard that was said to be from the old security is not good, but in recent years a vibrant market and popular among visitors, as in the past. Did not really feel the danger, in daylight hours and many old people and children and family atmosphere. Dining African migrants in the city, so would the interest on the market, and the next time I want to try.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
