The neighborhoods we singled out… in London
London is the city with many faces, which is why it is so charming. The busy shopping streets, museums and attractions on the one hand combined with the intense nightlife on the other! Especially for those visiting it for the first time, it is almost impossible not to want to be there again! The London of theatre and arts, squares and bridges, avant-garde architecture and shopping.
London has distinct neighbourhoods, each with its own character. There are reasons to visit every corner of the city, but we‘ve rounded up some of the best areas to explore.
Chelsea is located on the north bank of the River Thames and there you will find beautiful squares and multi–million pound mansions. King‘s Street is the main street of the neighborhood, which is lined with luxury shops, cafes and restaurants. One of the area‘s attractions is the Stamford Bridge stadium, the home ground of Chelsea Football Club.
The leafy neighbourhood of southeast London has a rich maritime heritage and is home to the Royal Observatory. Its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and beautiful Greenwich Park was the former Henry VIII hunt. Enjoy the view from the top to admire the London skyline. The covered market is filled with stalls selling antiques, art, crafts and food.
The streets of Soho are full of shops, cafes, Spanish bars, and restaurants serving food from all over the world. The heart of London‘s entertainment beats day and night and is part of the glamorous West End, with its theatres performing exciting plays and musicals. But here you will find countless pubs
One of west London‘s wealthiest neighbourhoods, it is home to the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Here you will find Hyde Park and Holland Park and it has a street that gathers shops for everyone.
This affluent area is located between Hyde Park and the West End. Mayfair is London’s most expensive Monopoly Square, so it makes sense that it is home to London‘s most expensive hotels but also some of the highest rents in London.
Notting Hill has picturesque streets lined with colourful townhouses and the famous Portobello Road Market where you‘ll find vendors with antique stalls, vintage items and clothes. The streets come alive every August, when the region hosts the second largest carnival in the world (after Rio)
