    Spectacular covered square that acts as an entrance to the British Museum, which cost more than 100 million pounds and where in 2000 the genius of Norman Foster has raised to the maximum its capabilities. At the Center is the Reading Room, the former reading room attended by famous figures like Marx and Gandhi.

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.
