    Common is a much less well-known in London Park but is perfect for a picnic, or sport in group or enjoy for a while to air free. Located in the area of Clapham, is surrounded by cafés, bars and restaurants with lots of charm, and with many fewer tourists than Hyde Park :-)

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.
