This British capital may be ancient, but it never gets old.
Thought you knew London? Think again. This British metropolis is the capital of cool. No matter how many times you’ve stepped foot on its streets, London will surprise you: From world-class museums to trendsetting restaurants, this city of 9 million people never fails to dazzle. Sure, there are the shiny new restaurants and bars and the budding hip neighborhoods — but you’ll still find all your favorite old-school joints that haven't changed in generations. This is London, and it’s calling you.
- King’s Cross
Once an industrial zone and now the place where the cool kids hang out, this north London neighborhood is not just a major transit hub — it’s also home to former industrial spaces that have been repurposed as swanky bars and shops.
Dining, Art Galleries, Nightlife
Home to the city’s most important government buildings, this hotel-filled hub is a popular sightseeing stop for architectural icons like Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. With 27 Tube stations, it’s a highly walkable neighborhood with frequent sights along the way — like the changing of the guards on Horse Guards Parade.

If you’d like a healthy dose of street art and urban cool, Shoreditch is the place to be. The East London neighborhood has quickly become one of the city’s most happening quarters, home to fashionable restaurants, bars and shops.
Street Art, Nightlife, Dining
Hugging up against Hyde Park, stately and upscale Kensington is home to some of the world’s greatest museums, along with posh boutiques, charming pubs, upscale restaurants and rows and rows of elegant Victorian-era town houses.
Dining, Museums, Victorian Architecture
This fun swath of London is crammed with traditional pubs, casual restaurants and a street life that is hard to beat. Once a red-light district, 21st-century Soho is the vibrant heart of London and should not be missed.
Chock-full of sights every London visitor should see and experience — the Tower Bridge, the Tate Modern, the Globe — Southwark is the London that swirls in your dreams. Walk along the Thames to take it all in, then head to Borough Market, one of the oldest and largest food markets in London, when you start craving a good meal.
