London is a cultural melting pot where people from around the world have found a home, a legacy of their colonialist past and a great contributor to its vibrant culture today: according to the 2001 census, over a quarter of the population of London was born outside the United Kingdom. Home to Big Ben, the Queen of the United Kingdom, the Tower of London, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace and fish and chips in your local, London provides days of distraction for the first time tourist. For return visitors, London's size and diversity offer something new to see on every trip. The city is the biggest in the UK and one of the biggest metropolitan regions in Europe with almost 14 million inhabitants.
London consists of the City of London, 32 boroughs and two liberties, which are informally divided into the following sub-regions.
How, you may be wondering, can there be a City of London within London itself? Because the modern municipality - the Greater London Authority - does not govern the actual City of London.
The City of London itself is located on the north bank of the Thames in the eastern part of the modern city centre. This was the Roman city of Londinium, and in its modern incarnation it is the world's largest international financial centre. It is a separate Ceremonial County from the Greater London and occupies a square mile, in comparison to the 609 square miles (approximately 1,500 square kilometres) of Greater London. Its cathedral is St Paul's.

Central London, like any other city centre in the world, is the place where the hive of activities and sights are concentrated. There is no official definition for the Central London boundary. Colloquially, Londoners refer Central London as the Zone 1 of the city's public transportation fare zoning system. Zone 1 covers the City of London; part of the boroughs of Camden, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Lambeth, Southwark, and Tower Hamlets; and the City of Westminster.
The only borough with a city status within Greater London is the City of Westminster, a couple of miles upstream adjacent to the west of the City of London. This is the seat of government, and its protestant cathedral is the church of St Peter's, otherwise known as Westminster Abbey.
West London is the area on the west side of London, on the north bank of the River Thames. The boroughs in this unofficial sub-division are Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, and Kensington and Chelsea.
The London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington are located in the area known as North London.
The north eastern part of London – the east of the north bank of the River Thames – is commonly referred to as East London. The boroughs in East London are Barking and Dagenham, Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. The Summer Olympics in 2012 will be held on this side of the city.
South East London, the eastern half of the south bank of the River Thames in London, is occupied by the boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lewisham and Southwark.
Popular attractions in the south east include the Cutty Sark, Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory, home of 0° longitude, the Prime Meridian.
South West London is the western half of the south bank of the River Thames in London. The boroughs in this part of London are Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Merton, Richmond upon Thames, Sutton and Wandsworth.
Other boroughs within Inner London include Southwark, Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Lambeth, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, and Wandsworth. Just east of the city in Tower Hamlets is Brick Lane is the heart of "Banglatown" in the east London Borough of Tower Hamlets, a street which runs from Bethnal Green, through Spitalfields and down to Whitechapel. Brick Lane has been the focus of several films and books, most recent being "Brick Lane" a book by Monica Ali - which was later made into a film. Tarquin Halls book "Salaam Brick Lane" was also about this wonderful part of London. Brick Lane is close to Aldgate, Aldgate East or Whitechapel tube stops.

There are no less than 6 international airports serving the greater London metropolitan region. Be sure to check which airport you are flying to, because transport costs into London can vary dramatically. Also, if are in transfer, be sure to check if it's the same airport you are flying out of or otherwise add lots of extra travelling time between airport. For example, between Stansted and Gatwich, it's easily 2 hours (train) but 3 hours by direct bus, which goes via Heathrow as well.
London Heathrow (IATA: LHR, ICAO: EGLL) is the largest airport in the London area, and many international flights arrive at Heathrow.

To determine what terminal you will be using, check out the which terminal information from the Heathrow airport website.
There are numerous options to get to and from Heathrow Airport.

There are numerous train stations in London serving locations across the UK. Details on services are available from National Rail.
International Services on the Eurostar via the "chunnel" currently arrive at St Pancras International Train Station from Brussels and Paris, and other destinations in France and Belgium. St Pancras International is served by the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Northern, Picadilly and Victoria lines on the London Underground.
For transporting your own vehicle (car, motorcycle) through the 'chunnel', check the Eurotunnel website, and for all other international options check the http://www.raileurope.co.uk|Rail Europe]] website.
London is well served by highways and roads into the town. Check out online maps like Google Maps for driving directions.
Drivers should note that the city is very busy, and traffic is a common problem. In addition, much of the centre of the city is covered by a congestion charge of £8.00 for any travel within the city centre, Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 6:00pm, excluding holidays.
National Express has coach services from major cities and towns in the UK and Europe. Megabus has quite a few services within the UK as well and in general is cheaper as well, as they operate like a sort of low-cost airline, with seats for as little as £1.00 if you book early.
Greenline is another operator on UK routes. For more options on European routes check the Eurolines website.
There are no ferries services directly into London, however a number of international ferry services run to coastal towns in the United Kingdom, and travellers can drive, take the bus or take a train from there. For more information about options regarding arriving or departing in the UK by ferry, check the UK Getting Around section.
With its narrow streets, busy traffic and congestion charges, most people leave the car at home and take the frequent public transport options. If you insist, there are numerous options to rent a car with both local as well as major international companies. Try Easycar, ElephantCar, Hertz, Sixt, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Thrifty and Enterprise, for a start.
Drivers should note that the city is very busy, and traffic is a common problem. In addition, much of the centre of the city is covered by a congestion charge of £8 for any travel within the city centre, Monday to Friday from 07:00 to 18:00, excluding holidays.

Transport for London (TfL) manages the bus, riverboat, tram and overground and underground train services in London. London uses a travel zone (PDF file) system, with crosses into other zones increasing the cost of fares. Informally, Central London is Zone 1 and the zone number increases as one travels farther away from the city centre.
For travellers who are spending multiple days in London, the best choice is either an Oyster card or a Travelcard. These are strongly recommended, because without them, ticket prices are obscene. Travelcards allow unlimited travels on the TfL network and come in Day, 7-day, Monthly and Annual validity. Oyster is a stored value travel smartcard that you use on the TfL network. Simply "touch" the card on a card reader when you enter and exit the system and you will be charged the lowest fare. For Oyster Pay-As-You-Go card, daily charges are capped at the price of a Day Travelcard even if you travelled more than that. Stored value in the card can be topped up at all tube stations.
The TfL Journey Planner is a great tool to find the route, mode and journey time to get from one place to another. Maps are also provided to assist travellers find their way around.
Underground, DLR, Overground
© All Rights Reserved Hien
The DLR (Docklands Light Railway) is a driverless light rail service that serves mainly the South East London. Compared to other modes of public transportation which are built decades or even over a century ago, this railway is fully accessible, making access much easier for people using wheelchairs, or who have other mobility impairments, as well as people with young children in prams or with heavy bags.
Unlike the Underground system, the DLR does not have barrier gates where you touch your Oyster card or insert your ticket to enter or exit. Instead, it is an open system and travellers are trusted to purchase a ticket prior to boarding, or in the case of Oyster card users, a card reader is placed at the station entrance. Remember to "touch in" when you enter and "touch out" when you exit. Don't even think of taking a free ride as there are ticket inspectors on the trains who will not hesitate to slap you with a penalty for fare evasion.
Overground is a sub-urban train service in London. It runs on ground level mostly in Zones 2 and 3. It has a lower frequency with train arriving every 15 to 20 minutes. The Overground also has no barrier gates like the DLR. Options include the Thameslink and Silverlink. Silverlink links Richmond in the southwest with North Woolwich in the southeast via Kew, West Hampstead, Camden Rd, Highbury & Islington and Stratford stations. Thameslink goes from Elephant & Castle and London Bridge in the south through the City to King’s Cross and as far north as Luton.
|Zone 1 only||£4.00||£1.80||£1.80||£7.20||£5.60|
* Oyster single fare: Peak hours are Monday to Friday from 06:30 to 09:30 and from 16:00 to 19:00. Off-peak hours are at all other times including public holidays.
** Day Travelcard and Oyster price cap: Peak hours are Monday to Friday from 04:30 to 09:29. Off-peak hours are Monday to Friday from 09:30 to 04:29 (the following day); Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 04:30 to 04:29 (the following day).
Bus and Tram
London has such a wide bus network that a Londoner's knowledge of the routes is just as good as the next visitor to the city. The iconic red double-decker bus is a good way to travel around while still being able to see London compared to the Underground. Standing is not permitted on the top deck when the bus is full. All bus stops have bus route information and it is not uncommon to see two or more bus stops in a row, each serving different routes. There are bus services 24 hours a day. However, only certain trunk and N-prefix (indicating night bus) routes run throughout the night to major parts of London.
|Adult||£2.00||£1.20 (daily price cap: £3.90)||£16.60|
|Children under 11s||Free||-||-|
Tickets can be purchased on board of most buses. You can also find road-side ticket machines on routes where buses do not sell tickets on board. So if you see a road-side ticket machine and you don't have an Oyster card, get a ticket first before boarding the bus.
Tram services are only available in Croydon in South West London.
Not entirely useful for commuters, but an enjoyable way to get around and see the traditional artery of the city at the same time, riverboats ply their trade between Putney in the west and Woolwich in the east, with several stops in the centre. This is a particularly good way to get to Canary Wharf or Greenwich. Thames Clippers offers commuter services running from 6am to just after 1am. The services (adult single/return £5/8, child -5yrs and under- half-price, roughly every 20 to 30 minutes) give you access to lots of the river sights. Boats run from Embankment to Woolwich Arsenal Piers, passing the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, Greenwich and the O2.
Taxis come in two varieties: licensed and unlicensed.
Licensed taxis (aka black cabs, officially Hackney carriages), are black with a yellow 'taxi' light on top In order to get a license, a candidate must pass a demanding test called The Knowledge. Essentially, he or she must know every street in London and how to get between them. So vast is this amount of spatial information that MRI studies have shown that your average cabbie has an enlarged hippocampus. So if you go by black cab, you can be confident your driver will know the way (although he may not want to go there: many cabbies get a nosebleed if asked to go south of the river). You can also be reasonably confident of your security and can take the licence number of your driver if you wish to complain. The downside: you pay more.
If you travel in an unlicensed taxi, you will pay less. But you will need to know how to get to your destination, since you will probably have been in London longer than your driver, even if you are a tourist. And you will have no idea of the identity of the person driving you. Women on their own are especially advised to think carefully before using this means of transport.
Greater London is a very large city, and it is not practical to explore all of it on foot. However, most of the sites of interest to tourists are in the centre of town. It is quite practical (and highly recommended) to walk between the central sites and then take public transport home. London is a very rewarding city to explore on foot, and both Westminster and the City of London are full of thousand-year-old nooks and crannies that can only be seen this way. Walking along either bank of the river is also recommended.
Several companies offer walking tours of the West End or the City. Almost every building in the centre has an interesting history to it, and this is one way to discover it.
Other rewarding areas for a day out on foot are the villages of Hampstead and Highgate and Hampstead Heath North London; Greenwich and Greenwich Park in South East London; and Kew and Hampton South West London.
Provision in the UK for cyclists is pitiful compared to much of continental Europe. The Greater London Authority has carried out programmes to change that, the so-called London Cycling Campaign, and bicycle usage has increased sharply since the congestion charge for vehicles was introduced in 2002. Nevertheless, cyclists and motorists are constantly at loggerheads, and London is a challenging city for cyclists. It is essential to wear a helmet. Cycling around Hyde Park Corner offers a thrill comparable to that of parachuting. Heavy goods vehicles are particularly dangerous.
Cycle London, an initiative by Transport for London to promote cycling, provides information, and free guides and maps for cycling in London. The free maps can be found here. More online maps of cycle routes are also available at the London Cycle Network website.
Another brand new company for bike tours in London is London Cycle Holidays: it offers self-guided tours in and around London and throughout main South England cities, by bike.
If you want to try something different try the London Pedicabs, which has three-wheeled cycle rickshaws, seating two or three passengers. Still, they are more typical tourist transport instead of a regular mode of transport.
Like any big city, London offers a mass of choices. From £2 breakfasts in greasy spoon diners up to £200 meals in the restaurants of some of the top chefs in the world, there are many choices.
Brick Lane, the heart of Banglatown, is the Curry Capital of the United Kingdom and is known for its "Cheap and Cheerful" atmosphere. You often come across touts for the restaurants trying to tempt you into their establishment. This is the time to negotiate your per-head price and attempt for a round of complimentary poppadoms or drinks! A Brick Lane curry is a must for anyone visiting London!
The High Street in Angel has an array of choices - even if you don’t know what you feel like eating! Everything is covered - from French to Turkish.
Prices for a pint of beer in a pub range from £2 in the outer areas of London to £3.50 in the centre and at tourist areas. Clubs can charge significantly more, and drinks can cost £10 and above.
London is one of the most expensive cities in the world, and as such finding places to sleep can be pricey. However, with some advanced planning an accommodation option can be found for most budgets. With the extensive tube and train system, travellers can stay a little further out of the city and still be close to the action.
Private rooms in hotels, B&Bs and studio apartments in flats can be found around London for £40 a day and up. Areas with lots of hotels and B&Bs include Earl's Court and Paddington. Travellers can also check out Gumtree for listings of short term vacation rentals in flats in the city.
London is home to some of the most luxurious hotels outside of Dubai (which seems to have cornered the market on luxury hotels).
Many upscale accommodations can be found in Mayfair in the West End, including The Ritz and Claridge's Hotel, both renowned for the lavish accommodations.

Before making plans to move to London and start working, make sure you are legally entitled to work in the UK so you do not face any legal difficulties by accidentally breaking the law. There are a number of ways you can apply for work permits and visas, and of course, this is also affected by your nationality. Check out the different types of work permits and visas to make sure you are entitled to work when you move to London.
With a number of UK and international companies based in London and a large population requiring goods and services, there are a lot of job options in London.

London has the largest population of students of any city in the UK. Here is a list of some of the more popular universities.
For free Wi-Fi, check out the map maintained by Londonist. A number of bars and restaurants offer Wi-Fi service with a purchase, and will usually advertise this fact. You may need to get the security key from the service counter.

Internet cafés can be found throughout London, and charge from £1 to £2 per hour, usually payable in 30-minute segments.

The mobile network operators in the UK are O2, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange and 3; and often have store fronts in most shopping areas. There are also other "re-branded" mobile phone service using the infrastructure of the mobile network operators. The Carphone Warehouse is an independent mobile phone retailer with stores around the country.
Mobile phone service plans are usually packaged as Pay-Monthly for post-paid plans, and Pay-As-You-Go for pre-paid plans. Pay-monthly plans usually come with a 12- or 18- month contract, while Pay-As-You-Go plans require top up of credit, which can be done at ATMs, kiosks and convenience stores with a "Top-Up" logo displayed.
International telephone call centres can be found around London, allowing you to place calls using a land line and pay for the call. These are often co-located with internet cafés.
The country calling code to the United Kingdom is: 44. To make an international call from the United Kingdom, the code is: 00
In case of emergency, call 999 or 112 from any phone. Such calls are free and will be answered by an emergency services operator who will ask you for your location, and the service(s) you need (police, fire, ambulance, coastguard or mountain rescue). You can call this number from any mobile telephone as well, even if you do not have roaming.
The Royal Mail provides postal services in the United Kingdom. The Royal Mail's store fronts are called Post Office and offer services ranging from sending letters and packages to foreign currency exchange. Use the branch locator to find the nearest Post Office branch. There will be at least one post office in any town/city and there are quite often post offices in larger villages. It's common for a post office to be incorporated into a grocery store, where there will be a small counter located at the back of the store for dealing with post related matters. All post offices are marked with signs that say 'post office' in red lettering. Post boxes can be found at any post office and standalone large red post boxes on the streets or red boxes in the sides of public buildings.
For sending packages overseas, it might be a good idea to check prices and services with international companies like TNT, UPS or DHL.
