If you were forced to pick one city to be a tourist in for a whole year, London might very well be your best choice. In London, you'd probably run into a citizen of just about every country on the planet and you'd eat a good deal of their cuisines, as well. You'd have access to the art and antiquities of both Britain and the world at the British Museum or the National Gallery or a host of other places, endless performances (including Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre), unruly sporting events, and first-class shopping. When it rains (which is less often than most people think), dive into a historic pub for pie and mash or hop on one of London's famed double-decker buses. The public transportation system alone warrants a visit to this worldly ... Read more
city. (Hint: Try Route 15 for a local's view of many sights: Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the Tower of London.) London is more like the crossroads for, rather than the center of, the world these days. The timeless city effortlessly manages to blend international culture with British pomp in a metropolis of 14 million (the largest in the EU).
London’s mild climate, with temperatures rarely below 45°F (8°C) in December and January, make it less intimidating than, say, Finland, as a winter destination. The best time to go is between May and September, however, as long summer hours see the sun set close to 10 pm and relatively warm temperatures (up to 75°F or 24°C) make for great sightseeing. The changeable sky means it’s always a good idea to dress in layers and pack an umbrella. If you do find yourself in the Big Smoke over the winter, take advantage of the packed theatre season, free museums, and cozy pubs to stay warm.

London is one of my favorite cities in the world. I spent a few months living there, so I am pretty much a pro. London has so many nooks and crannies to explore. I also really love the various farmers markets, but Camden Locke Market has to be my favorite. They have the best variety of food and you can literally find any cuisine you want from Mexican to Ethiopian. I wish I could live in London forever.

Anytime I go back to London I love it more and more. It is a fantastic city, alive, funny, trendy, cool, with fantastic museums, clubs, restaurants, parks. London is wide and surprising, there are many kind of open air markets, from antiquities to used clothes, flowers, books, anything. There is also the right injection of contemporary arts, architecture and showrooms. Luxury shops are absolutely crazy.

London is just one hour away from us so anyone who wants to visit London and all the magical wonders that is has to offer, but not spend London prices, is ideally placed in Caterham

Visiting London was a dream trip of mine, mostly for the Tower of London since I've been obsessed with the story of Anne Boleyn for as long as I can remember. I was surprised that in the middle of August nighttime still required a light sweater. There's so much to see! Piccadilly Circus reminds me of New York's Times Square. Don't miss the opportunity to board the London Eye, there's no view like it. I didn't get a chance to eat at one of the Indian restaurants that are rumored to be so good and that's a shame because the one star London missed out on is because of the food. I tried fish and chips in 3 different places and it just wasn't good. Most of the food in London was missing this little thing I like to call, seasoning. The bright spot was finding a little secret spot to have tea that was amazing. Scones and jam, cake and other pastries, it was fantastic. Nightlife seemed to be pretty good too, not far from the hotel was a place that had a live band doing cover songs, everyone was dancing and having a good time. Not sure yet if I could live in London, or even commit to a year, but I would definitely like to return one day.
