    Ben Johnson said if you tired of London, you tired of life--or something like that--but it is true. London endless delights. There are so many things to see and do. Personally, I love art galleries and museums and after spending the equivalent of 10 weeks vacationing in London over the past 12 years, I still have not had my fill.

    London is one of the most exhilarating cities in the world. There are so many unique neighborhoods and places to visit. The attractions and landmarks seem endless, and public transportation is a breeze. They have fantastic hotels, and the once less than stellar dining is a thing of the past.

    London has some of the most friendliest people in the world. :) The food is good and their fish and chips hit the spot! The £ can be quite expensive though, depending on what you're converting from. The sights in London are beautiful and it's easy to get around if you use their underground subway system/buses above ground. There are tons of interesting museums to look at and see, and most of them are free!

    The world financial center, the English capital was actually founded by the Romans. Its long history has seen it burned down and bombed, but London Town always comes back with a vengeance. Construction is currently under way in East London in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. Classic London sights include Westminster, where the English Parliament operates, and Buckingham Palace, the home of the Royal Family. London’s gloomy grey skies do nothing to dampen its culture, which is a ferment of music, theater, and dance. Hipsters crowd Camden, Shoreditch, and Hoxton while the upper crust of society hangs their collective hat in Hampstead, Kensington and Chelsea in the palatial Georgian homes. Government investment in art means the museums like the National Gallery are all free. Theater both in the West End and off is excellent. Transport on the double-decker red buses or the tube is efficient if not cheap, while London cabbies are notoriously knowledgable about the city. The food does not have the best reputation, although it has improved in recent years and one would be hard pressed to complain about a pint and roast dinner at a cosy English pub. (unless, of course, you are a vegetarian). London is also extremely international, with a large Indian population and loads of ethnic restaurants. A major world capital, London is a cosmopolitan, modern city.

    Lived in central London for a year, and I have to say it has the best of everything a city can offer. Amazing public transit, history, culture, food, the list goes on. It is a great platform for cheap and easy European travel as well. Beware, it is rather expensive and you'll want your peacoat for the winter months.

    It's London. It's one of the world's most famous cities so it is definitely worth seeing if you have the chance. There is so many great historical things to see and the city has a hip vibe. The prices for everything here are incredibly high! It is a foodie capital but the restaurants in London are so expensive unless you have a pretty big budget you might not be able to enjoy that aspect. Quality low priced food is limited. If you are an art buff this is definitely the city for you! There are so many amazing museums to visit! One great thing if you are traveling on a budget is that lots of the museums are subsidized so you can get in for free. Also many of the attractions you can choose to view the building or site without having to pay for a tour or entrance.

    One of my very best spots: St Christopher's Place - a cosmopolitan area of very good restaurants from morning till night! Very lively every day of the week.

    There is always something happening. Free Museums that contain immense collections, lots of business deals to be made, concerts of all types of music, a Mecca for design and art. This is the busy centre of the European world. People from all over the world choose London to live and start a business and a new life, tis means that you can find communities from all over, and restaurants of all types. This is one of the best city destinations.

    I lived in Kensington, Kensington Olympia, and Chiswick (all areas in Central/West London) for 7 years. Hope that makes me more than a tourist, but apparently I have to submit a boatload of reviews first. Geez.

    This is what it's all about. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament lit up on a cold crisp night. Priceless.

    It's hard to beat London in terms of history and beauty. It's also the #1 place we recommend to Americans travelling to Europe for the first time. No language barrier and fairly unchanging, London is the beginning traveler's paradise. But naturally, it's beautiful in its own right and home to the best football club in the world! (Chelsea, not Arsenal, folks.)

    I mostly call this place home and , so I'm less dewy-eyed about the place than those who visit it London is as much a paradox as the U.K. itself: on the one hand the city which has everything and boasts a population which is more ethnically and culturally diverse than anywhere else I've been; the flip side is Little England, a place occupied by people who are still trapped in a time when Britannia ruled the waves and there was full employment for mainly nice Anglo Saxon people. Come visit the place, our arts and culture scene is world class, there are some beautiful things to see and there's also that old lady who lives in a big house in the centre, surrounded by guards. Londonders can be the unfriendliest of the English but don't let that dissuade you from experiencing a city which endures and sparkles, even through the hardest of times. Maybe one day we'll return some of the precious things we've looted from our foreign cousins...

    I absolutely adore London. It is one of the only cities in the world that I think has the sheer power to lift you up and revive you. It is obviously hugely multicultural, so there are many different dimensions to be explored.

    One of my favorite cities in the world, London is vibrant, full of life, and has so much history. Public transportation is reliable and easy. There are plenty to see, to eat, and to experience.

    There is so much to do in London you can never be bored. It literally has something for everyone from markets to interesting restaurants or from sight seeing to perusing the shops.

    I could definitely see myself living here. We walked around this city for hours, took the tube here and there and never ran out of interesting things to see and do. At night the streets were alive with pub crawlers and good food. Love it.

    I lived in London for a while in 1999, had been there before and I am used to visiting, either for business or leisure, at least twice a year every year. It's my favorite city by far and a place I feel home. Amongst all the interesting places the guides will suggest you to go, there are so many hidden spots which are worth to see: forget about the bad weather reviews and allow yourself to walk along the Thames without a map for once in your life. It will end up being a journey.

Description

Let's just say, for some reason, you were forced to pick one city to be a tourist in for an entire year. London might very well be your best choice. While London is more like the crossroads for, rather than the center of, the world these days, the city effortlessly manages to blend international culture with British pomp in a metropolis of 14 million (the largest in the EU). In one year, you'd probably run into a citizen of just about most every country on the planet (you'd eat a good deal of their cuisines, as well). You'd have access to the art and antiquities of both Britain and the world at the British Museum or the National Gallery or a host of other places, endless performances (including Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre), rowdy sporting events and exquisite shopping. When it rains (which is less often than most people think), tuck into a 250-year-old pub for fish and chips or jump on one of London's famed red buses. The public transportation system alone warrants a visit to this ... read more
worldly city. (Hint: Try Route 15 for a local's view of many sights: Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the Tower of London.)
