Your guide to London

All About London

London is one of the world’s great old cities, situated on the banks of the famous River Thames. The city boasts some of the world’s most recognisable landmarks including the Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the London Eye. While Buckingham Palace and the Royal family draw big crowds, it is London's diverse population that is the lifeblood of the city. Together, its residents speak more than 300 languages and are made up of cultures from all over the globe — ensuring you can experience a wide array of entertainment and food on your trip. While fish and chips are still a British favourite, they are rivalled today by curry as the nation’s most famous dish, which you can enjoy in any one of the Indian and Pakistani restaurants dotted throughout the city. And of a course a true London experience would not be complete without a trip to a traditional pub.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in London

London's milder climate means it is a good place to visit at any time of year. Spring offers longer daylight hours and mild weather in April and May, but it is still wise to bring an umbrella during this season, as you will get the odd spot of rain. Summer is a great time in London, as the warm weather is suitable for enjoying all the sights and many green spaces. The city becomes very lively in summer with several prominent music festivals and outdoor cinemas. During the winter holidays, London shines with Christmas lights, and there’s a festive spirit in the air. It does get cold, though, so rug up. Whenever you decide to visit, you will find a wide range of holiday apartment rentals in London to suit all tastes and budgets.

Top things to do in London

Hyde Park

London’s biggest and best-known park, Hyde Park is home to the world-famous Speaker’s Corner, which is occupied by debates and performance artists every week. It’s also home to several memorial features and the famous Serpentine Lido (swimming pool) where you can go paddle-boating and enjoy a moment of nature in the middle of a big city.


Head to Camden in North London, one of the city’s hippest neighbourhoods, known for its alternative culture that attracts a vibrant and diverse community. The eclectic Camden Market features street food from all over the world and stalls selling an eclectic mix of old records, secondhand books, trinkets, and unique artwork. You could rummage for hours through the vintage clothing racks to find the perfect piece.

The Thames Path

Explore London on the nearly 60 kilometres long Thames Path, where you will find many quieter city spots. You can see all the sights on foot or jump on a bike and cycle the length of the path, with public beaches along the way. You can also stop by a good old English pub along the way and enjoy a bite and a pint.
