The UK is full of so many great travel destinations. London is undoubtedly at the top of everyone’s UK travel list, and for many good reasons. If you’re thinking about planning a trip somewhere, here are a few points to convince you that going to London is the right decision.
There’s something for everyone
London is more than ‘just a city.’ It’s such a wonderful place, it almost feels like a mini country in its own right. There are so many different areas to visit and things to see. There’s something for everyone, it doesn’t matter about your aim when travelling here. If you’re interested in culture and learning more about the places you travel to, London has a range of museums and cultural exhibits to satisfy this. If you’re going away for a good time, the London nightlife is something to behold. There are just so many general tourist attractions around the area, you’ll do well to take them all in!
Incredible transport system
The London Underground is one of the best transport systems in the world. It enables you to get around this big city with absolute ease. Sure, you might get cramped in a carriage during rush hour, but the tube trains are every few minutes, so you can always wait for a quieter one. As well as this there’s the London Overground, London Buses, and even trams for you to use too. To make your life easier, it’s so simple to use. All you have to do is tap a contactless payment device on the big yellow circle at the barriers when you’re entering and leaving a station. Plus, there’s a price cap which means you never pay more than a certain amount per day!
Lots of places to stay
There are some cities you visit where finding good accommodation is a bit of a struggle. London doesn’t fall into this category as there are so many places to stay. Shepherds Bush is one of the best place location, it’s a truly gorgeous London Borough. You can stay in a luxury hotel in Shepherds Bush, a budget B&B, or even a youth hostel. It’s a short journey from the main city, and there’s accommodation for any budget.
Excellent view from The Shard
To be honest, you should go to London purely to take a trip up The Shard and see the view. For those that might not know, The Shard is one of the tallest buildings in Europe, and you can pay to travel all the way up to the 72nd floor for a breathtaking view of London. It’s the only place where you can see almost the entire city all at the same time. For me, it’s one of those things you have to experience at least once in your life. When you’re stood up there looking out at the city, it feels like you’re on top of the world.
London is packed full of things to do, places to stay, and it’s easy to get everywhere. To add to that, it’s also home to a huge diversity of culinary hotspots, as well as some of the best shopping centres in the world. Give it some thought the next time you’re travelling.
