Greater London


Comentarios sobre Greater London

Luton airports sometimes have cheaper flights and there is an amazing hotel there called the Red Lion Inn that is super cheap and about a five euro cab ride to the airport or the train station. We took the train from Londres to Luton and then flew out from there.
Heathrow is the main airport for London and is to the west if the Greater London area. There are various types of public transport varying in cost. The budget minded should take the underground (tube, metro, subway) but note there are fast trains which cost more. It's not a bad idea to have a night here to acclimatise to London. There are places that you might visit from here (do your own research!) and London buses currently charge a flat fee of £2.
The "Big Red Bus" and "Original Bus" tours are a great way to see Londres and top sights. Some routes have a live guide and some have recorded conmmentary. Busses are double decker, some with open tops. Pay one price for the day, hop on or off at any stop, Thames river tour included in price.
If you like Castles and historic places and are spending a week or more in Londres and the rest of UK, then get the Great British Heritage pass before you leave home. You save heaps of money. For only around $80-$90 AUS you can get a pass for 15 days that gets you in free everywhere (except for Tower of London which is half price). Considering entry prices at castles and historic properties range from 8 - 15 GB pounds you save a lot. You can use it also at places like Roman Baths museum at Bath and at Stonehenge too. We used it in London for Hampton Court Palace, Kensington palace and Windsor Castle. You can also use it in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Don't go to Londres -- street art everywhere and stolen sh*t in the museums! The British are pirates, I tell you!
I suggest spending at least one week in Londres if it's the first time you go there. The best place in London for those who are keen on history (particularly the XXth century) is the Imperial War Museum on Lambeth Road (metro Lambeth North). The entrance is free. There are permanent exhibitions about the holocaust and "live" experiences of the trenches in the 1st World War or the bombings of London in the 2nd World War. Tanks, aircrafts, and guns are also in the hall. I spent there three days and I suggest it to everyone.
