Before I move any further, let me tell you that London is one of the most visited cities in the world, a hub of tourists visiting from different parts of the World and India as well. So, you can expect a busy, vibrant city dotted with lots of tourists. Be ready to get through the crowd!

London’s Unpredictable Weather

London city has an extremely temperamental weather. Sometimes even summer days can receive good rainfall and make the weather chilled. Londoners are used to carrying both sunglasses and umbrella at the same time. Such is the scene there. For first timers, it is advisable to check the weather forecast before you pack for your London trip. Even then, you must be ready to expect any sudden change in the weather and be prepared to deal with it.

Book Your Hotel Bed In Advance

If hotels are not your thing, you’ll find plenty of flats to rent in London from budget-friendly options to high-end, luxury properties. I recommend Homelike for rental apartments in London.

Never think of heading to London unplanned unless you’re willing to spend the night in a taxi. London, being one of the most visited cities in the world, is always full-packed with tourists, no matter what time of the year you are visiting it. So, always ensure to make your hotel booking well in advance (at least a week before) so as to ensure that you get a bed to sleep on. London has a number of accommodation options available in different budgets.

Getting To The London City

London is accessible by air, rail, road as well as ferry. However, most foreign travelers prefer flights to get to London in lesser time so that they can have more time to explore the city and enjoy here. In order to save money on the tickets, make your flight booking 2 weeks prior to your trip to London.

Utilize London’s Public Transport

The best way to get around in the London city is through public transport as the public transport in London is easy and safe to use. Also, it is a much cheaper way to travel across the underground rail system and the bus routes.

People In London

When visiting London, you may expect to collide into helpful people. Most Londoners are polite and friendly individuals until you hamper their personal space or get loud and irritating. You must follow traffic rules when in London and must not raise the volume of your iPod loud. Saying ‘Please’ and ‘Thank You’ will also make it easier for you to be in London.

What To See In London?

As a first time visitor, it can be hard to decide from where to start with your explorations. The historic Tower of London could be a good site to start with. Also, I would suggest not-to-miss the following – the best views of London from the London Eye, the tallest building in London the Shard, Buckingham Palace, Madame Tussauds, Big Ben, the British Museum, London’s National Gallery and the Natural History Museum of London. Some places can be a bit expensive but what you can do is to – take a London Pass, a sightseeing card that allows you to cover a total of 55 tourist attractions in London at a fixed rate.

The fast-paced city of London is a great place for vacationing. So, what are you waiting for? Get your tickets booked now to explore some of the most incredible sights that this amazing city has to offer!
