WHAT TO SEE IN LONDON
Those who decide to visit London are drawn by its cultural significance, from historic places like Buckingham Palace, Westminster, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge to the trendiest places where the fashions of the future collide. On a trip to London, however, you can’t miss out on a visit to its extraordinary museums, from the most typicals ones such as the British Museum with its vast archaeological collection, the Tate Modern with the best of contemporary art from around the world, the National Gallery and the Natural History Museum, as well as less well known and more niche museums. London is also the ideal city for shopping, the best to get hold of the trendiest clothes and objects. There are countless locations to satisfy your every desire: from the exclusive collections of Mayfair and Bond Street to the most electric clothes in King's Road, Camden Town, Brick Lane and Notting Hill, not to mention the department stores and myriad shopping centers.
WHEN TO GO TO LONDON
The best time to visit London is in the spring or summer, when the weather is warmer and it's more pleasant to walk around the city. There are plenty of events on in these seasons: in the spring there are nighttime museum openings, while at the end of August you'll find the Notting Hill Carnival. The only drawback is that the scenic buses and Thames cruises come under attack by the tourists, and even the Underground becomes decidedly crowded. You will might find a slightly more inhospitable climate if you book a flight to London in fall or winter, but the city is still full of surprises. There is a wide array of events organized in these periods, from the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square to the skating rinks located the most unexpected places, Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland for the children, the flea markets in Southbank Center and finally the famous pyrotechnics of the New Year's Eve firework display at the London Eye. There is always something to do in the English capital.
