London - always worth a trip

By plane, we are already in London in less than two hours from Stuttgart. Since we left in the morning, we can already let the city work its magic on us on the day of arrival. Of course there are tons of hotels right in London, but if you don't shy away from traveling in the subway - the London Underground - you can find it in the many suburbs and at the same time save your wallet.
Our accommodation is in Wood Green - with the Picadilly Line we are right in the center of London in 30 minutes. Buying an “Oyster Card” is definitely recommended here. You can conveniently top up this with credit at the machine and then drive it off with every journey. Even taking the underground train is an unforgettable adventure. But be careful: those who travel during the “peak time” (between 06:30 and 09:30 and between 16:00 and 19:00) the most frequented times of the day will quickly pay double the fare!

At the beginning of your stay and for the first time in this impressive city, it is a good idea to do one of the famous hop on / hop off bus tours to get a feel for the city. So you can already discover a lot that you can look at later in peace: The Tower of London, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge or the London Eye at all these impressive sights you can take a look at all these impressive sights in advance .

We purposely booked accommodation without meals and I recommend that to everyone. London offers such a varied cuisine that everyone will certainly get their money's worth - regardless of personal preferences. Would you like to enjoy a full English breakfast in the evening or would you prefer to eat Vietnamese? No problem in London, pretty much every nationality in the world is represented here and this is also reflected in the London kitchen. For us it was important to have dinner in a real British pub!

Just like us, you should definitely plan a day for shopping. But don't just go to the famous Oxford Street, be sure to take a look at the small and often hidden boutiques. You are sure to find some unexpected treasures here too.

The days in London have passed by far too quickly and the return flight to Stuttgart is already on the agenda.

One last tip on my part: Make sure you wear good, comfortable shoes, your feet will surely thank you!


London is definitely worth it, whether for shopping, sightseeing or just sniffing international flair!

See you soon!
