"London: My Favourite City" London by King_Golo

London Travel Guide: 25,449 reviews and 57,820 photos

London - possibly the world's most exciting city and my all-time favourite! I first visited London in 1990 with my parents when we ticked all the most important tourist sites. Six years later we came back for more - and I was hooked, so that I returned in 1997 with my best friend, in 1998 for a class trip and in 1999 the first time on my own. After that, there was a break of a few years, but when I moved to Oxford I made it my goal to go to London as often as possible. Well, I definitely could have gone more often, but there were so many other things to discover in England... To cut a long story short: London is the place to be, and everyone should have seen the city at least once in their life.

A few of my London favourites include the must-sees of St. Paul's or Greenwich, but also less obvious places like Little Venice and Hampstead Heath. Apart from that, I spent a lot of time just walking through London's streets (one day I managed 17km in one afternoon) as there is so much to see that it never gets boring. If I ever have the money and the chance, I'll move to this extraordinary 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!
