  • Stay at the Marriott in (north of) Regents Park and walk over the Hill to view the Park and City on your way to London Zoo! Beautiful! Oh and look out for the Ringneck Parakeets in the park, especiall...  more »
  • Primrose Park has a gorgeous view of the city, especially in the area of the City (old city) at its highest point and will get to see the London Eye. To reach the panoramic point more high you have to walk quite and the ascent is a bit steep, but it is worth. It is an ideal place for walking or running over the slopes. It is well-kept and large. Of course that sight can be seen more on a sunny day.

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.
