Thanks for your description .Reply I am feeling very well, best luck of myself & family , due to my eldest son in London.Reply Interesting fact. London is officially the smallest city in EnglandReply "Avoid less touristy areas for safety" – lol. The vast majority of Londoners live and work in non touristy areas! For a city of its size, London is a relatively safe. Of course there are some dangerous areas but visitors are not likely to go there as there's nothing to see. The reason why tipping in restaurants is not mandatory is because the vast majority (probably 80/90%) add a service charge to the bill, usually around 10/12.5%. Avoid very cheap eats in London because they are cheap for a reason. It's an expensive city and if you come with a very low budget you won't get anywhere near the best experience out of your visit.Reply Here are some more advices. For a comfortable stay, avoid the "charming" hotels in bayswater! There are nicer hotels for not that much more money. Check what ratings other travellers gives the hotels. And getting around is sometimes faster if you walk, for example between leiceter and covent garden. Don't be afraid to explore areas where you haven't been before. Last time i stayed in islington, which have a small-town feel to it but with lots of chops and pubs.Reply AmeiReply London isn’t that safe lolReply Gatwick is not in London.Stay on the outskirts of London and use public transport it will work out cheaper.Reply a little island. they have nothing special but must seeReply Great video 💕💕Reply -9Reply J'ai faimReply If i am traveling with my family and want to use the London card do i need to get a card for each member of the family?Reply Awesome information!! Thanks a million!Reply Love the video! It looks so beautiful!! If you don't mind checking out my channel, that would be awesome! IReply Doesn't sound convincing because of the American accent of the voice over…Reply i love London too much 💕💕😍thank you brather 🌷💕😍👏Reply The famous landmark in london is the Elizabeth tower currently undergoing renovation, it will reopen to public around 2021. I will visit london only after the tower reopens back.Reply Thank you for provided useful info ……..keep traveling enrich your lifeReply The video really help me better understand the city for planning a trip!Reply Halo London I dream im coming soon in LondonReply South Kensington tube brings you out to Thurloe Street where you can choose French or Italian coffee houses, then walk down Brompton rd where you come to the bunch of 🍇 ‘s pub which do a cheap lunch with your choice of beverage. 5 minutes away from that is Harrods the best department store in England for service and quality. The 2nd floor has the men’s designer garments and the world famous ice🍦 parlour which is next to Harrods commercial floor for gifts, 6 foot tall teddies and stationary. Download the Harrods app which ever platform you use, it has a map which guides you to every Hall in every floor so you can’t get lost. Enjoy your visit to London. ✈️ 🍷🛏💤😘Reply if you're visiting London for 2 days…what all should you do?Reply I was there this last October for two weeks, and it didn't rain once! Depressing since I come from the desert, and was so hoping for rain. BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!Reply The adaptor in the video says that Australia and USA use the same plug, which is definitely wrongReply I live in aylesbury but having been in london many times, people visiting read:1: anything in the london postcode area (w,sw,nw,n,e,se,ec,nc) is london. try to get a hotel in these areas as they are closest to the center and not too expesnive (apart from hammersmith)2: try to fly from city, heathrow or gatwick. luton and stansted are really far3: Dont go out after 8pm, it gets real dodgy4: Try to avoid areas to stay such as westiminster and lambeth5: the shard is a scam, visit the sky garden instead for a better experience (as seen in 8:39)Reply London 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧Reply Very best cityReply Could anyone recommend a useful and inexpensive way to go to Gatwick Airport from St. James tube stop? Can we use Oyster card to pay for the ride? How long will it take?Reply It is not safe, the crime is sky high!Reply Just don't go there.Reply What is the background song?Reply this video is very nice! thanks~Reply Great video, great suggestions. But you missed one of the most important ones – even if it is a negative one – Dont attempt to drive in London, It will drive you crazyReply Good vid, pretty accurate 👍🇬🇧Reply Thank you for the video! It's very useful!Reply Thank you so much!!This video helps me so much for planning the travel to London!Reply I recommend staying in South Kensington specifically near the Gloucester tube – most of those hotels are within 100 meters of the tube, it's on 3 lines (circle, Piccadilly & 1 other that links easy to every major attractions with those lines), can catch the bus or walk to the museums, Harrods & Kensington Palace, are near a Waitrose & Tesco for groceries and a laundry mat. It's also far cheaper then the hotels near Westminster and Covent Garden but not that far – some of London's hotels are crazy expensive and I've stayed in 5* elsewhere. And don't forget to cash in the remaining value on your Oyster Card before you leave. London pass is also such bad value as you won't get to the amount of attractions to make it worth a day pass – check if it makes sense for you!Reply Many compliments for this beautiful video! Thank you very much!Reply i love this! i actually live in england, dont go to london much tho :(( anyway, would you like to collab maybe one day? im stuck on 30 subs and id like to reach out more to channels just like mine! <3Reply I’m am from Texas and i have been to London many times I highly recommend the underground it is very efficientReply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
