Your Travel Guide to London

Guide for London

Whether you’re tipping your head back to see the top of the Shard, or standing in the £5 pit at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London will make you gasp and think in equal measure like no other city can.

Walk in the footsteps of kings and queens at the 1000-year-old Tower of London, or have a pint at a pub where Charles Dickens once drank. Free museums like The British Museum and V&A mean you can soak up culture by day, while party hotspots Dalston and Shoreditch mean you can let your hair down with London’s cool kids while dancing the night away.

Carry on reading our London city guide to find out tips and tricks for cracking London before you go, including where the best value hotels are. Browse all our London hotels here to find one that fits your budget.
