London travel guides and books
Londoners share their thoughts and feelings about their multi-cultural capital. WE Love London!
Why people love London so much and why people from different countries want to visit this city?
London is famous, popular, traditional, modern, and cosmopolitan.
Just who have already tried the taste from these streets know what I am saying. Every day is a holiday in London.
London's history is rich in culture. Its monuments, its peaceful parks, its twisting rivers, its lively people, its beautiful street, its marvelous buildings, all these combine together in London to make it a beautiful city.
Do you know when a person comes to London for the first time from some other country, what all questions he has in his mind? Yes, you are right, the questions will be like.
- I am planning to go to London for a weekend at the beginning of May to celebrate my birthday. My father has arranged everything for me, but then also I want to confirm which is the best place to celebrate my birthday?
- Can any of you suggest good places to go clubbing in London and have fun? Good music, dancing, reasonable price, and cool people is something that I am looking for.
- I am visiting London next week to shop for my marriage? Which is the best market in London where I can shop for my wedding, as I am very choosy.
- Can you tell me from where to hire a cab to visit Birmingham?
- I have heard that there are many beautiful parks in London to visit, can you please suggest me which one are the best, as I am planning to visit London this week.
- Can you please tell me which is the best hotel in London? I am looking for luxury as well as reasonable price.
Other than that, there are a lot of questions which people have while visiting any place in the world, as I will try to cover these types of questions by creating more hubs.
First of all, I would like to tell you some views on London of some of my friends who have visited my city.
What these people say is not totally different than what I have heard from other people about London but it is interesting.
People say there are so many reasons. A few years ago, I could only dream about London, I did not know much about at first, but immediately fell in love. The cultural background is amazing!
Beautiful London with such an old history with its historical buildings all over the city. So much to see, so much to do - even when you are in London all by yourself and for the first time as well!
The people - many different cultures mixed up and most of the people are really friendly, which is nice! I mean, not to see a town full of arrogant people, but something deeper, like kindness.
The Thames - gorgeous. The palace - fascinating. China town - with its big colorful lights and lanterns. Entertainment - hundreds of theaters, cinemas, bars to hang out.
Every day is a holiday in London. Me and millions of other peope have fallen in love with London and they have got million of reasons to do that!
I love London, Do You
London is a multicultural and multi-ethnic city
The Bridges, especially Albert's and Hammersmith. Having brunch on the river, especially in Richmond. Picnic in Kensington Gardens which were originally a part of Hyde Park. Tea and Scones at Candy's Tea Room, off Church Street.
The quartets playing in Covent Garden. Covent garden on a Saturday is bustling with activity, and Spitalfields market on a Sunday is fantastic. Look out for free events throughout the summer in Time Out magazine and do not miss the annual Notting Hill carnival, an absolutely fabulous street party.
You cannot forget the walk on Primrose Hill, and Steak and Fries at Troubadour in Earl's Court.
Some people who have lived in London say that we have visited quite a few other big cities and cannot imagine another city in the world where you can just stroll around the streets and see so much diversity in people's appearances, fashion, languages, accents, culture, behavior, mindsets.
Whoever said New York was a melting pot had not been in London yet!
Everything in London is lovely!! People, strangers, British accent, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Thames, Stansted and its cheap flights...but people's favorite ones are the parks (Hyde and Regents) full of people playing football on sunsets and weekends.
Regents park is a great place! People prefer to go over there at the end of May when all the roses are blooming and it is really charming in April too.
People visiting London should also visit London dungeons, quite a spooky place!
It is a place where you feel free and can meet people from all around the world. Again not to mention the lovely parks and great museums.
