London, a vibrant and ethnically diverse metropolis, is also a city steeped very deep in history. And not just the English history, but also perhaps, the histories of countless other nations have been shaped by London. The seat of the longest-reigning monarchy in English history is in London. For a peek at the life of the famous English royals, a visit to Buckingham Palace is a must. Visit the many museums – Natural History Museum, British Museum or the Victoria & Albert Museum, for a glimpse of the treasures of the world. London’s arts & cultural venues are not to be missed either. And if you just want to sit down after trundling about in the city all day, there’s no dearth of parks, which are tourist attractions in themselves – Hyde Park, The Regent’s Park, St. James’ Park, etc. London’s restaurants and buzzing nightlife are sure to keep you up till dawn! For the most memorable London experience, come and check out our recommendations of the vacation rentals in London, England.

Top guest reviewsso it had to be used downstairs in the living room since there were also no mirrors in either bedroom (only in the living room and bathroom)The Nespresso machine in the kitchen did not work needed to be descaled or perhaps it was broken entirely When we tried to use itThere was also no outlet (that we could find) for the hairdryerLoved this apartment I would definitely recommend this for 2 people looking to have a bit of privacy with 2 separate bedroomsThe apartment is nicely decorated and very quiet
