London – The Most Popular Places To Visit


London is a large city, so you will be able to find many great activities to do based on where you are visiting. It is effectively lots of towns directly joined onto one another, with these being some of the highlights:

Camden Town – Attracts a huge amount of visitors even though it is not very visually appealing. People like to go there to see its lively market and its large underground music scene. Each weekend, approximately 100,000 visitors go to the market to find objects that they would not otherwise be able to purchase in one shopping trip.

Covent Garden & The Strand – Draw an enormous crowd of people, as this wide street running from Trafalgar Square towards the city is chock full of fascinating shops, theatres and hotels. Off the Strand you will find Covent Garden which is filled with street entertainers like mimes, dancers and magicians, as well as with charming bars and cafes.

Oxford Circus & Piccadilly Circus – Millions of tourists visit these extremely famous areas every year.
