London has long been considered a must-see destination. Today, it is a sprawling city whose stunning skyline embodies the meeting of two worlds, modern and historical, living together side by side.
Over the past 2 millennia, London inhabitants have built some of the world’s most historic buildings. Buildings constructed decades ago, used by and home to some of the most influential people in British and indeed world history, still stand proudly to this day. There is a fantastic array to be discovered: big and small, grand and low-key.
Not many places in the world are as eclectic as London. The fusion of History and culture in the heart and soul of the United Kingdom: glistening palaces, posh tea rooms, high-end shopping, steampunk bizarre, and more all make up the intricately woven fabric of London society. Each of London’s neighborhoods boasts its own culture, which is part of what makes visiting this city so exciting.
Covent Garden is perhaps one of the most charming parts of the city. Just steps from some of the most famous theaters in the West End, Covent Garden is filled with great restaurants, shopping, and classic British pubs. While you are there, visit the Covent Garden market, where you can pick up some fun souvenirs.
Cool bars, funky restaurants, and live music make up the scene in Camden. This lively part of town is where the young locals flock for a night of fun and entertainment. If you want to see what’s cool and hip in London, spend an evening in Camden and immerse yourself in the culture of modern-day London.
Notting Hill is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in London. This area is known for its posh boutiques and upscale restaurants.
You’ll instantly recognize the neighborhood as you walk the streets, thanks to the colorful townhouses that line the streets. Notting Hill is also known for its annual carnival festivities, including a parade celebrating the area’s Caribbean roots (as well as a Julia Roberts/Hugh Grant RomCom).
Considered to be the artsiest neighborhood in London, Shoreditch is where trendsetters and creatives go to mingle. Fashionable bars, small gastropubs, and artisanal coffee shops make up the eclectic dining scene. Shoreditch is filled with vintage and designer boutiques if you’re in the mood to shop.
KENSINGTON AND CHELSEA
If you want to see some historic landmarks, royal residences, and excellent shopping, head for Kensington and Chelsea. Bordering Hyde Park and the River Thames, this part of London is the perfect place to take an afternoon stroll and enjoy the city’s sights and sounds. Walking through the city, you’ll quickly discover what makes each part of town unique. These are just a few of the many neighborhoods you should explore on your next visit to London.
