Visit London

So you've planned your trip to England's capital, and now you need to work out exactly what to do. Depending on where you're staying and what you intend to do, it's helpful to have some preparations in place before you travel to London. Make sure you've got all your insurance (both home and travel) covered, as the last thing you want when you come back is to find something awful's happened. Travel and health insurance are also useful, just in case you run into any problems while on your visit: these could include damages to possessions, theft, or even injury occurring while at one of London's many attractions.

Enough of the worrying stuff though when you're in London, wherever you're staying, there is sure to be something to suit your tastes. Often getting to know the area a little before you go can be the best way of having a great time, or even chatting to locals in the pub when you arrive to find out the best restaurants or bars. For shopping in London,, Oxford Street is of course incredibly popular, but why not check out Covent Garden antiques market or the trendy Seven Dials? Soho and Old Street are other great places to find fantastic bars and cafes, or venture further out into newly-hip areas like Dalston to have a look at the thriving independent music scene.

London is home to some of the best museums and galleries in the world, and we would recommend if you only visit one museum while you're there, make it the V&A. With a world-renowned collection of ceramics, textiles, design objects, sculptures and furniture, the V&A successfully combines a host of different art forms in one fabulous building. The Natural History Museum is another great adventure, especially for children, holding a plethora of flora and fauna to delight young minds. Whatever you decide to do in London, you can be sure that you won't be bored!
