First time to visit London
 
I have always loved traveling, but this is my first time to visit London. This is like a dream finally coming true! That's why I want to enjoy my every minute there. Can someone give me suggestions on where should I stay? I prefer a place near the most famous attractions of the city :)

I was lucky enough to visit London in 2007 for two weeks.
*EVERYTHING* is super expensive!!:eek:
For some of that time I stayed in Paddington, which was reasonably close to the main city area,and even though the hotel looked very good from the outside,the inside was rather shabby and not at all comfortable.
It was also very expensive.
I really loved the city and I was surprised that so many of the main tourist attractions are reasonably close together-easy walking distance.
Buy a ticket for the hop on-hop off bus and that will allow you to see lots of the touristy areas with the bus driver giving you detailed info.

You are so lucky to be going! I went two years ago just for a week during my semester abroad in Florence, Italy. I stayed with some friends who were studying in London and I fell in love with the city! It's like a bigger, nicer, cleaner NYC :)
I would recommend going on the London Eye... amazing views! Also, I really enjoyed the Tate Modern Museum!

Have a great trip!

We stayed somewhere near the buckingham palace. get ready tom literally empty your wallet but the traffic in the city is so bad, that if you need to get around, take the double decker bus (oh so authentic) or the underground (subway) which is very efficient.

I like travelling. It's my hobby. I just can't stay at home in front of my TV. I need to do something all the time. There are lots of places I've visited. I've got many favourite places, but I should say that London is my favourite destination. Everybody can find something to his taste. Recently I visited We Will Rock You show in London. I think it is one of the greatest shows I've ever seen! The musical was fabulous!!! So I recommend visiting it:clap:
Undoubtedly,
London is worth visiting it at least once!
