The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics. This enormous city is divided into 32 boroughs, each one offering a distinct vibe and flavor to visitors from around the world. London has one of the most comprehensive public transportation systems in the world, and the popular Tube, trains, and buses service most tours. The city features countless attractions to suit every taste and budget, but its main appeal may very well be its extraordinary diverse things to do. Take just a short walk through any part of London, and you’ll be left with the impression that the whole world has come to town. As writer Samuel Johnson famously said, "When one is tired of London, one is tired of life." Whether you’re looking for ancient history, modern art, shopping, or the frenetic energy of underground raves, London truly has an itinerary for everyone. Put London at the heart of your travel plans by using our United Kingdom (UK) itinerary planner.

Where to stay

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.
