Guide for places to stay in London

About

It’s almost impossible to get bored in London. A veritable wonderland for the most inquisitive globetrotters, the city displays an array of things to see and do, which could keep them busy for days on end. London has something memorable to offer every type of traveler, from foodies and history buffs to art lovers and culture enthusiasts. Plus, all of these awe-inspiring experiences are framed by a gorgeous landscape dotted with historic buildings that date back 2,000-years ago! 

Best time to visit

When it comes to the weather, London has quite a controversial reputation. But good news: famous for being constantly rainy and cloudy, the city can also be delightfully unpredictable, and you can be surprised by hours of sunshine after a heavy storm! So no need to despair.

But in case you want to aim for more pleasant weather, try to go to London during spring (March through April). Just don't forget to pack an umbrella, as it may start to "drizzle".

Getting there

If you’re flying into London, it’s likely that you’ll land in Heathrow International Airport, which serves around 80 airlines and hosts domestic and international flights. To get to London, you just have to take the Heathrow Express, which is the fastest link between the airport and the city center. 

Places to visit

Best Things To Do In 24 Hours In London

Westminster Abbey: A Gothic-style church that has hosted 16 royal weddings since 1100, and sight-see the Tower Bridge, which magnificently crosses the River Thames. 

Big Ben: The 315 feet tall Big Ben is a striking tower that stands majestically at the north end of the Palace of Westminster. Also known as The Great Bell, the clock has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, which is a good enough reason for you to visit it!

Tower of London: This 4.9-hectare sublime castle was founded at the end of 1066 and has played an important role in English history, serving as an armory, a treasury, a menagerie, and the home of the Crown Jewels of England.

Buckingham Palace: Perfectly placed in the City of Westminster, the palace was built in 1703, and it serves as the London residence and administrative headquarters of the monarch of the United Kingdom.
