Hyde Park is one of the largest and a great place for a stroll or a picnic. And if you're lucky, you might catch an open-air concert or festival. Greenwich Park is one of London's oldest. Originally hunting grounds for King Henry VIII, the park is now a hive of activity. Tennis, boating, picnics, and sunbathing are popular activities here. Greenwich Park is also home to the National Maritime Museum. As London dates back to Roman times, it's not surprising there's so much history and culture to enjoy. Take an organised tour to ensure you don't miss awe-inspiring places such as Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, Marble Arch, Tower Bridge, Parliament Square, and the Tower of London. You can even take a riverboat cruise at night and enjoy dinner and drinks as you pass by many of the city's landmarks under the stars. London is right up there with Paris and New York when it comes to shopping and while there are lots of wonderful shopping districts throughout the city, a few deserve a special mention. Oxford Street is home to more than 300 stores. Visit during December, and you'll be able to stroll beneath the street's famous Christmas lights. Knightsbridge is home to a range of upmarket stores, including the famously opulent Harrods. And some of the world's best tailors and jewellers can be found on Bond Street.
If you plan your trip in advance, there are lots of cheap hotels to choose from. If you're looking for nightspots and theatres, book a hotel in the West End. Meanwhile, the Tower Bridge area is perfect if you want to immerse yourself in the grippingly gruesome history of the Tower of London. If you're hoping to enjoy a little retail therapy during your time in London, staying in and around Soho might be a good idea. This area is home to a wide range of national retail brands and luxury boutiques. Surrounding neighbourhoods include Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Mayfair and the iconic Oxford Street. If you're keen to be close to the West End but want to save a little money, head north to Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia - both of which are within walking distance. Kensington is just a few Tube stops away from London's theatre district, and it also offers fast links to Heathrow and south London. A hive of activity can always be found in and around the South Bank area. This bustling neighbourhood lies right on the River Thames and is home to quite a few cheap hotels. Head out to the east, and the trendy, multicultural areas of Shoreditch and Whitechapel lie in wait. Although these neighbourhoods offer more than their fair share of cheap hotels, they're a little further out from the centre of London. Generally speaking, however, the further away from London's epicentre you are, the more you can save. Besides, riding London's Underground Tube makes getting into the centre from the peripheries is easy - and the Tube is a top London experience in itself!
