A Local's Guide to London

England’s capital is home to many historic sights, a buzzing metropolitan culture, and an incredible cityscape. Visitors to London can immerse themselves in the culture of this thriving city while discovering historic sites like the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and the South Bank.

Take a trip on the London Eye to view the skyline from above and walk across the River Thames on one of the many bridges including London Bridge.

Fans of the monarchy can visit several official residences of the Royal Family in London. Buckingham Palace, in the city of Westminster, is famous for being the scene of events of national importance as well as the thrice-yearly garden parties and the daily changing of the guard ceremony. Visitors are often delighted to see the flag above Buckingham Palace flying – a sign that the Queen is in the building. Another royal residence is the home of Prince Harry and Megan – Kensington Palace. Sitting within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, this is an historic seat of the monarchy.

While these landmarks are representative of the modern face of the royal family, the Tower of London is a relic of the past. Sitting next to Tower Bridge, this landmark is a secure fortress and once a royal prison.

Visitors can see the incredible Crown Jewels, a world-famous collection of more than 23,500 precious gemstones, kept at the tower. The tower is also home to the Beefeaters and guests can learn about the prison’s most infamous residents including Guy Fawkes and Anne Boleyn.

Choosing a house rental in a central location means guests are just moments away from some of the most popular attractions. South Kensington, Covent Garden and Leicester Square are all great locations to book a rental in London. Even if visitors choose a rental in London just outside the main tourist areas, public transport is available around the clock to connect all areas of the capital.

There are hundreds of museums in London to explore the vibrant history of the city. The Science Museum has exhibits for families and children, Tate Modern showcases modern art, while the National Portrait Gallery includes work from talented artists spanning hundreds of years.

For any visitor, the Natural History Museum is a must-see. This fantastic building has an incredible array of exhibits from the natural world and the showstopping main attraction is the skeleton of a whale hanging above visitors' heads in the main entrance hall. Many of the museums are free and offer a great day out for just the cost of a picnic or donation towards the upkeep of the exhibits.

While in London, vacationers should take some time out to walk around some of the city’s parks. Hyde Park, Regent’s Park and St James’s Park are some of the best examples of green space in the capital. Visitors can completely forget they are inside one of the world’s largest cities and immerse themselves in the nature and wildlife.
