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

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 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. Despite going there numerous times, I still have seen only a fraction of what London has to offer. There are soooo many interesting sights, soooo many new places pop up suddenly, soooo many places one knows already have to be revisited - I think I'll have to move to London at some point to really get to know the 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. So check out my London tips, browse through my sites about other European capitals like Prague, Tallinn, Helsinki, Paris, Riga, Vilnius or Lisbon - or continue your tour through my pages here!
