    We have been to London twice. Once in at the turn of the millenium, and the second time in 2012. We saw tremendous changes in the twelve years between our visit. Some for the good, and some that were not so good. It's the same bustling and energetic metropolis of eight million, but it seems to be a troubled place in some areas that I visited.

    London happens to be where I had my "Ah-ha" moment. Before that, I had never wanted to travel to Europe. Walking around the streets and seeing history every inch around me really brought me to a new place in life. The Tube makes me feel alive. I have nothing bad to say about London. Except that I am not there.

    London is a beautiful city full of history and is literally one giant tour ground of museums, castles, and timelessness. At every corner are statues and monuments of military generals. The museums are amazing, and you can learn everything you want about English history. Try the infamous fish and trips. Only drawback is the constant grayess of the weather. Visit the Tower Of London to see where famous prisoners were held, and be sure to stop by Buckingham Palace and Westminster.

    Globe theatre
    Buckingham Palace
    etc.

    Hands down my favorite city! As Samuel Johnson said, if you've grown tired of London, you've grown tired of life! There is something for everyone here. If you don't believe me, check out my guide!

    Museums, history, Royalty, theater, sport and the list goes on. There is so much to do I would recommend breaking it down by days. A museum day, a 'tourist' day (like Tower Bridge), a Royal day (Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Place).

    If you are coming for Christmas then there are several festive things you can do, Ice skating, christmas lights in Oxford street, harrods window display. Your best bet is to visit the tourist board to see what is on. Enjoy you trip

    Even though we were there in August, the weather was cold and rainy most of the time. The city itself felt very dirty, although some of that was likely caused by the construction for the Olympics. That said, there is a lot to see and do, as long as you don't mind warm beer.

    There's no international destination that I've visited more than London and no other city that has the same chic vitality that you find in New York. Though overflowing with historical buildings, London is no museum piece. Whether it be the shopping along Oxford Street or the nightlife around Piccadilly, there's always something to do.

    I am completely in love with this vibrant, cultural, beautiful city. It is modern and historic at the same time, filled with a delightful paradox of traditional and unconventional style. Spiky-mohawked teenagers walk around just behind stern businessmen in suits, ladies sit gossiping over tea at a street cafe, and rowdy "blokes" roar their appreciation in smoke-filled pubs. Ride the enormous London Eye, then tour the centuries-old Tower of London. Zip around the metropolis in the famous double-decker busses, surrounded by old buildings, prominent banks, and the huge waving Union Jack on every corner. Then cruise the Thames on a river boat tour, marking down a never-ending list of places you want to see. Then grab a pint and mingle with the locals at night, or catch your choice of a theater performance, punk rave, or old-fashioned cinema. London is alive, teeming with culture, and ready to keep you busy for weeks.

    One of the most Beautiful, Interesting, Historical cities in the world.
    London has it all and of course is the host of the 2012 Olympic Games!

    Brooding huge in the imagination, the city of London is one of the world's great cultural repositories, the museum of an empire that once stretched around the globe. As such, few places have the CULTURE or the HISTORY that London has, combined with the hipness of being on the constant cutting edge of the world arts and music scene. Dubstep is from London. Shakespeare premiered to the wider world here way back in 1592. The London transit system is also top notch, with good buses and of course the every-handy Tube. On the downside, weather is not the British capital's strong suit, and Londoners may have at times have a gruffness that rivals that of New York City. Still: get lost in the museums, see a play, eat some curry, ride the Tube, have a pint, and just wander around. You'll be glad you did.

    London is a very cool city. I'm sad that I really only had about a day and a half there. We did a lot in that time, but most of it involved getting on and off a tour bus. I'd like to go back for a proper visit someday.

    I was not prepared to love London as much as I do. Historical buildings and modern art. Polite customs and ground-breaking underground art. Pubs. Indian Food. Outdoor markets. Gorgeous views. Hampstead Heath. Tiny, delightful neighborhoods steps from the tube. It's simultaneously like visiting a gorgeous cosmopolitan city 200 years ago, and visiting one now. Paris may officially already have the nickname, but I call London the city of love.

    A lively, pulsating world-class city, filled with pomp and circumstance and rock n' roll. London has lots to offer, from museums to historical sites to music to food.

    London is by far my favorite city I've ever been to. So much so that I hope to move there!

    "Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."

    London just put a whole spin on food for me. Usually when I want a real foodie experience, I go to NYC, but wow, London, never expected that! Lots of really interesting underground dining, especially with Daniel, a true Brit who not only can give you an authentic London experience, but a tasty one. Definitely not something to miss out on. Stay away from the fish and chips, this is where it's at!

    London is a sprawling city filled with culture. During my first visit here, I will admit to leaving without understanding the "hype" about London. After my second visit I finally got it.

    I love the vibe of London, from the madness and noise of covent garden to the markets at camden and quaint atmosphere of trendy Shorditch. There is always some thing to do. Check the Time Out guide they always have the latest hot spots listed.

    London. The center of the universe. I'd move there in a heartbeat. Classic old world England meets the modern era head on with a style and beat all of it's own. No place quite like it.

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.)
