What are the best districts to visit in London? Wich Districts is better to keep away of? What about Soho? I heard a lot about it. Any suggestions about Notting Hill?

PS - the tube service is very good once you get the hang of how to use it. It still confuses me. Always ask for directions - Londerners seem pretty helpful in that way.

I liked visiting the Mayfair and Knightsbrigde districts. They are very English. I also liked Docklands - totally different from the old London.

Hey Audry

No district in Central London is really worse than any other, safety-wise. Interest-wise the south bank with the Tate gallery is a good patch, as is the area around Green and St James's parks with the houses of parliament, westminster abbey, bucks palace etc. Soho is quite a fun place for a drink and a bite to eat, and chinatown is quite fun. I think Greenwich is a good bit to get away from the normal tourist track, with the Cutty Sark, the Maritime museum, the observatory and plenty of decent little pubs and cafes.

I personally like Camden but it's often too crowded, Primrose Hill offers great views of London. There's a nice walk to do along the canal between Primrose hill and Camden.
Notting Hill is a nice area to stroll around too.
The Spitafield Market and its area is also interesting.

I love candem even if it´s really crowded especially during the week end. I always make sure I have time to go there when i go to London. Islington is nice to have a meal and a drink. The bethnal green market on the week end is really english you can find the food, flower amd flea market.
