Wherever you’ll be resting your bones in London, you can’t miss one of the popular markets of the city like Portobello or Camden. And you can’t miss the chance to sleep in a traditional victorian-style building, or at least visiting one. What’s harder to get is a room at the Buckingham Palace, but still you have the chance to look, walk or run around Saint James Park, which is close by.
The center of London will keep you close to the National Gallery, Piccadilly, the Tower Bridge… in a matter of hours you could be walking along those postcards you’ve already seen so many times. If you want to sleep near the city’s heart, West End is the place to be.
In any case, London starts in each of the neighborhoods, so be flexible, look around and choose wisely. Mind the gap!
