London

4.5
An international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics is hardly lacking in tourists attractions. Things to do in London go well beyond touring famous landmarks, such as Tower Bridge or Buckingham Palace. If you climb to the top of St. Paul's Cathedral, you will be awarded with an unforgettable panorama of the city. London's museums cater to pretty much anyone with a curious mind, whether they're into art, history, science, nature, or engineering. Its pleasurable green spaces, like Hyde Park, offer a nice break from the city commotion, while still providing plenty of family-friendly attractions.

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.
