London has been on my bucket list for years, but after moving to the U.S., I never visited the city. In this blog post, I will show you what I’ve learned about Travel in London so you can make the most of your trip and become a pro traveler like me.
So you’ve decided to take a trip to London, the most romantic city in the world. You’ve booked your flight, packed your bags, and booked a hotel. But how do you find out where to go, what to see, and where to eat?
In this blog post, I’ll walk you through my experience traveling in London and how to make the most of your time there.
When you first arrive in London, you will most likely take public transport to get around town. London is a big city spread over a large area with a complicated network of underground tunnels and stations. This guide will teach you how to travel the London Underground as quickly and efficiently as possible by getting to know all the basics of the system. You’ll also learn to find your way around on maps, read timetables, and watch for signs. You will then learn how to plan your trip with a smartphone app so you don’t get lost and never miss your train.
When to travel
A quick way of finding out which months are the best is to look at the number of tourists. The seasonal trends are usually apparent by the third week of April.
I suggest booking a flight around the end of March or early April, and you can fly into either Heathrow or Gatwick.
This is because the cheaper flights tend to book up very quickly. However, the advantage of flying to Heathrow is that you’ll have more options, whereas Gatwick is a bit more limited.
