"London: One of my favourites in the world!" London by King_Golo

London Travel Guide: 24,238 reviews and 52,540 photos

I was in London several times in the 1990s, but no more after that. Back then, it was the feeling of being one amidst millions of people that made my stays so exciting. I have always loved big anonymous cities (such as New York or Hanoi), and London has ever since been a favourite of mine.

While living in nearby Oxford I finally had the time to discover London part by part whenever I felt like doing that. After all, it's only a 70-minute bus or train ride from Oxford. You will therefore be able to receive updates every once in a while when I have revisited this great city.

As usual, many of my tips will be about walks through a specific area. I very much enjoy discovering a city like this because I think that one sees much more compared to organized tours or hop-on, hop-off buses.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Too many to name...
