When people say London the immediate thought is Central London, but the city also includes both the inner and outer boroughs, all in all amassing a population of over 14 million people!
You could spend months in London and still only scratch the surface of what this great megalopolis has to offer. Must see landmarks include Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Marble Arch, Piccadilly Circus, Tower of London and Trafalgar Square, all of which are steeped in history and have their own stories to tell.
London has a truly fantastic selection of galleries and museums to visit. You can see everything from the great classics to the modern masterpieces and anything in between. The British Museum, National Gallery, Natural History Museum, Tate Modern and Tate Britain each deserve at least an afternoon of your time. Their collections are amazingly vast, so you’ll probably find yourself going back for a second time.
London is one of the world’s most fashion conscious cities, which goes some way in explaining the the number of clothing shops that lace the city’s streets; from the flagships of Oxford Street to the boutiques of Brick Lane. If you’re looking for high end and established retailers such as Selfridges, John Lewis, Hamleys, Apple, D&G, Louis Vuitton or Heals then Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road are the places to go. If you’re looking for a quaint, alternative or independent shopping experience then hit up Charing Cross Road, Soho and Camden Town; these areas are packed with unique clothes and trinkets that you’ll struggle to find anywhere else.
London is as famous for it’s landmarks and shops as it is it’s nightlife. Head over to Farringdon, Hoxton or Shoreditch for clubs like Fabric, which specialise in underground electronic music ranging from Drum & Bass to Dubstep and House to Techno. Head up to the Mayfair area for your more upmarket, flashy nightclubs such as China White, Luxx and Maddox, all of which have a commercial chart lead music policy. Camden is home to the Electric Ballroom which, like other clubs in the area, specialise in Metal, Rock and Indie music.
