Recommendations for visitors in London
My affair with London started when I was 17, when I first flew there. I enjoyed the weather, the beautiful streets, the double-decker bus, and the British soundtrack. Anyone who knows me is familiar with the fact that at the age of 21 I lived in Brighton England, and since then I returned to London as many times as I could, almost every year and I just can’t get enough. Last June I visited London with my husband and daughters, Ariel and Doron, ages 3 and 6. That was the second time for us as a family, in London. Taking a trip with children in a big city is not easy and you should emotionally prepare yourselves for that in advance and know what to expect. If you’ll properly organize all in advance, you will be looking at a magical trip. So let’s go! Hit play on the following song and read the recommendations, the urge to go to London will increase… If you wondered where the video was taken, it's on the Hoxton street
So… When to fly? Thant’s a good question. If possible, I recommend to fly on June, the weather fluctuates between warm and chilly, the city is not too packed with tourists, the lines are reasonable and if you’ll start planning the trip in advance you can find tickets in affordable rates. It is important to remember to take a coat and an umbrella with you, even on May and June, or buy a coat at Uniqlo. For a couple I recommend to fly to London throughout the entire year. On November and December, for example, you can enjoy the Christmas markets, the sales and Winterland which is a huge amusement park..
I love using Skyscanner search engine to look for flights, which compares between the different airlines. Just pay attention to the currency.
How many night should you be in London? As many as possible, but at least 5 full days.
Where to sleep? In the center, meaning London’s 1-2 areas.
London is divided into area and if you look at the map, imagine the shape of a bottle, this is actually its center.
First thing, before or right after I book a flight, I check who performs in the city that time, Just search on www.ticketmaster.co.uk that’s how we got lucky to go to Katy Perry’s concert.
A much recommended way to get to know a new city. There are bus companies that operate tourists tour bus in a Hop on and Get off in stations as you please. Usually the tour is for a full day with many main stops around the city. You will be provided with headsets in which you can hear many explanations about the city (in English). The stops are located all around the city’s touristic areas. It is recommended to look for students or pensioners discount.
It is impossible to get to London and not see a play. It is recommended to go to Leicester Square where you will find a lot of stands that sale tickets and can get to half a price. If you’ll get there at a busy time or is you are a group of people, you can purchase tickets in advance on www.ticketmaster.co.uk or through the plays’ official websites.
Among the plays I watched and loved a lot are Chicago, Thriller and The Sounds of Music.
