  • Hampstead Heath is like a larger and more diverse version of New York's Central Park. You really feel like you are way out of the city, and anything that you might like to do outside, you can do here....  more »
  • This place is great to go. Here before the museum garden was used to shoot "the lover of Notting Hill". Lost somewhere that will arrive in the 210 bus from station. Back in the 210 bus arrives to ARCHWAY station. There is small Museum of fine arts, one Vermeer and Rembrandt several (Museum of the pepper). Admission donation box, but was taken.

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.
