unbeatable atmosphere

London is the most fastmoving and upbeat city of Europe and one of the most vibrant cities of the world.
Despite pollution and crowds of tourists, people from all over the world live together in this city peacefully.
Numerous tourist attractions can make it difficult to decide where to go, especially if you are on a budget or if you do not have enough time.

Plenty of art, museums (many for free), musicals, pubs, restaurants, parks, gardens, exhibitions, shopping, streetlife, bars, coffeeshops, streetmarkets, exciting sights such as the Tower, which I saw recently for the first time even though I live in London, or the Towerbridge.

Regretfully the Euro currency or others are not as strong as the British Pound. Therefore I do recommend to stop thinking about horrendous prices such as for entrance fees or transportation, hotels, food and beverage, but enjoy the unique atmosphere of business and pleasure created by the beautieful London people.

unbeatable sights

There is so much to do! It can be stress! There maybe queues! Avoid the weekend at some instances. Take time and enjoy!

unbeatable beauty

Many of the buildings, parks, taxicabs etc can be spectacular! Even if you are busy and situated in crowds enjoy the architecture. I recommend visiting Notting Hill Gate for a day and walk around there...
